    I've done some reading around and the only "bad" thing I have read is the per diem.

    I know there are a few driver on this board that drives for them. Tell me the good and bad of this company. I would also like to know a bit about the home time. What is their main running areas? Who are their main customers?

    Actually Butler has a good safety rating and is one of the test carriers in the state of Kansas for the csa2010.

    Are you sure you were not looking at Butler Transportation out of PA. I have not looked at their rating, but i know they do alot of flat bed, and that will kill you every time.

    I think they are a GOOD co-keep you running which means good pay.They do maintain the trucks really well.People are nice there also.Safety guy is real direct and a good person to talk to.Compliance lady is really nice and helps with any problems.
    Have run for a lot of really messed up co's in past 10 years and think I will be here for a while.

    I am now working for them. My truck no is 7705. I am in Denver now. Been sick all day. Flu type symtoms. Guess I shouldn't have bragged about not getting sick out here on the road...
