    What's the inside scoop on Cardinal? Are they a good company to work for? Do they treat their drivers well? I do realize every company has it's good and bad points but I'd like an honest opinion of the company over all.

    I think it will depend what account you are on. A close friend was an O/O for Cardinal pulling a flatbed with Moffitt for home depot deliveries and was very happy with them. Only reason he left was he moved out of state and they did not have openings where he moved to.

    I know some drivers in the refrigerated division at a grocery warehouse account and they like it and make good money.

    Are all the local drivers O'Os because the Home Depots in my area use cardinal daycabs for home delivery but they're all brand new F'liner Cascadias. That would be a big monthly payment for a local O'O.

    Driver I spent 5+ years with Cardinal on numerous accounts as accompany driver and O/O and will say as a company they were fine to work for, and depending on the account you are on you tend to work independently, meaning you hardly see any other drivers let alone your manager. Cardinals dispatch is decentralized and broken into cost centers run by a manager and that is the person who causes you to love or hate your time at Cardinal. They are a tough company to get cleared to hire by but once you are hired they do everything they can to keep you. Unfortunately, I had to leave them earlier this year for family reasons but have recently been in contact with them about returning and working on the Greatwide O/O side of the company.

    I was with cardinal logistics out of so cal. I was on two dedicated wal mart accounts. I was there about 7 years. Very good pay. Equipment was ok. Same cost center manager for both accounts the only reason I left is he retired.
