Pros
good equipment, above average pay
Cons
some dispatchers are dishonest and immature.

Equipment is good and well maintained. Instant response on all repairs. Truck are a bit under powered and limited to 65 mph. Pay: Guaranteed pay of 2500 miles/week. Start at 45 cpm with 6 months experience, higher if more experienced. Salary positions on dedicated account are equal to over 60 cpm or up to $28/ hr. (depends on experience and where you live) Home time is average for OTR - 2 days/ 2 week. Dedicated home time is very regular and about 3 days off after 11-12 out. Miles: OTR averages 2500 (minimum pay is 2500 miles/week). If you are a "go getter" you can get a lot more. Dedicated is about 1900 miles/week - a good deal for the salary. Type of freight: all reefer, mostly Tyson Culture: somewhat regressive dispatch culture. You must know how to deal assertively and professionally with problem dispatchers. Using the chain of command can be very effective in solving problems

Pros
Good pay, simple pay structure, good equipment, regular home time and no East coast.
Cons
Some issues with certain immature dispatchers though I have seen improvement.

Good equipment with fast maintenance response. Home time is regular (11-12 days out) and one is always welcome to stay out as long as desired. Pay is competitive for the OTR (46-50 cpm) and more than competitive for dedicated. Minimum pay of 2500 miles/week for the OTR and $185-200/ day for dedicated. About 2000 miles/ week for dedicated (less is better) and anywhere from 2000-3000/week for OTR (depends largely on driver). All reefers, all company drivers.
