    I was going to post when I first started working for these guys but I figured I would give it time so I can get a feel for them. It has been the best decision to drive for them. Its a flatbed company with some dry vans but ive heard van doesn't start to high on pay scale. The whole fleet is w900 and 379 Pete's. Great equipment, im home every weekend and I get on average 2900-3100. Last week I ran 3640. I never sit waiting on a load more than 30 min and thats happened once usually it's on my Qualcomm 5 min after I make my empty call. Now there are a few things I do t like. One you dont have an assigned dispatcher. They have areas and whatever area your in thats who you deal with sometimes. It easier to communicate when your dealing with one person and not 4. Also the shop, I have a hard time getting out when I'm in there. Not like some companies days on end im only talking a few hours so not bad. Any info ask away sitting on my break in Texarkana
