Pros
Elite professionalism Uniforms Good camaraderie Easy parking for breaks at stores Occasional lunches in the break room Reliable tractors
Cons
Pay (personal issue) Time away from home Phone policy Safety expectations (ice cleats, constantly followed in the yard) My personal issue is distance, I’m 100 miles from the dc and they’ve told me to go home bec work is slow. Too far for me to drive and turn back on 10. PTO is seniority first, then first come first served. It’s impossible to get holidays except Christmas Day, unless your day off falls on the holiday. Expect to work 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving (they’ll try to rou

I’ve reviewed WM before. After my first full calendar year I grossed $77k. I ran most of last year on a 5/2 5/3 program and extended my work week quite often. 1500-2000 miles/wk. I work out of a GM DC. Load coordinators and support staff are agreeable and treat us with professionalism. Safety is somewhat unrealistic in what they choose to enforce. I’m not sure how to make this a job that pays $90k, without being gone 6 days and only home for 1. as they claim. I left LTL, home every other day, nearly 100k. I thought I hated nights too much and went to WM. It’s a P and D type of job, but the majority of the $ is paid in mileage. Activity pay is nice, but the $ is in the miles and at 1750ish avg miles ... ????????‍♂️. Groceries are multi stop and need counted, we are instructed not to do anything but count skids (worker’s comp). 3 grocery stops in north jersey or the boroughs can take an entire day and only make you about $200. I work 5 on 2 off in an assigned tractor, my average gross is about $3,000.00. If I extend and work 6 on 1 off my gross is about $3600.00, which is nearly 95k. My average day pay is $316, I’m now a 5 on 2 off and extend every other week. Equipment is decently maintained, mostly late model Freightliners. Trailers are a little old and problematic, but the shop never gives any fuss about working on them. No phones. Cameras face us, but aren’t on (supposedly). But the trucks are miked for sound soooo... I’m disappointed with what I was told the job would be when I talked to the recruiter. The cameras will go off for hard braking, running yellow lights, too fast on curves and anything else that trips the hair trigger in the gyro. Now it’s not a terrible job for all the more they actually expect. If 75-80k, day shift, slip seat to start, they’ll let you plan your day any way you want. I turn on 10 and try to run my clock out every day. I’m slightly disgruntled, but not here to say it’s an awful job, I’m just trying to be realistic with expectations.

Pros
Pay and home time is good
Cons
Switch trucks and micro managed everything you do.

Micro managed every move you make. Camera's in truck. Never worked for a company that tries to find reasons for getting rid of drivers like this.

Pros
Recruiters are honest and helpful
Cons
Safety dept.

The safety department lacks realistic situations. They only base preventable and non preventable accidents on statistics they review from a quote, reliable site, not based off of the actual DOT, Highway Patrol accident reports. So if you lose control of your vehicle because 90 mile an hour winds come out of the blue without warning and you wreck your vehicle it's non preventable in the report, but their safety department. Because apparently they're statistics know every preventable way for accidents not to happen regardless of situations. And if you apply to this company for work they will let you know at the very last second just days before that flight out to Arkansas for orientation that you are disqualified leaving you out with no employment anymore and a disappointed heartless result to explain to your family.

Pros
Dispatch/management Maintenance/shops Drop and Hook Uniform program Good sense of elite professionalism Immediate attention from management for any personal issues. Hometime is practically guaranteed. They will get you home for time off (which is nice since you can only really talk to your family when you’re parked).
Cons
Phone policy Cameras and microphones (used in conjunction to enforce phone policy) Not consistent money, paid every two weeks and some trips and activity pay get carried over. 21 paid days off/year doesn’t include holiday pay. If you want a holiday off, you have to submit the time off in advance, except Christmas.

Great people to work with and work for. Unfortunately, I spend a lot of time on the east coast including the 5 boroughs. The company itself is ran very nicely, but it’s not the $86k I was hoping for (and I extend my workweek). Average 1500-1900 miles per week.

Nothing is promised

If you want a consistent paycheck look elsewhere your at the mercy of the company your contracted with and the company you actually work for will not back you up.
