Never felt at home before like I do here. Everyone in dispatch is a former driver and seems to know and understand what we go through when dealing with the customers. Mostly contract freight, I've only hauled one brokered load in over 3 years here. Most of the guys and gals have been here longer than I have, and I hope to out last all of them, too. I get home when I want to get home and there are no "earning" days off when on the road. I am home every weekend to be with my family. Trucks are mostly new and decently equipped Cascadias. Satellite radio is provided by the company, too. I'm not going anywhere anytime soon.
It was a good stepping stone into the oilfield. Probably one of the best training programs and facilities in the Bakken. Hourly pay made for a good safety net for rookies, but perpetuated slackers milking the clock.
