    When you are possibly looking for a new position, what are the key things that you look for in a perspective new company? What are immediate turn offs?

    The first three are money, money, and money followed by good equipment to make money.

    The first thing I look for as a company driver would be the lanes, where do they run and how often can they get me home or thru the house. That’s a key for me, can I go pick up in a area and it’s guaranteed to go to my city,

    2) how much freight do they have, are they brokering loads, or do they have contract work. This is key to making money. If they only broker loads this mean they don’t have their own work and that not good to me. (Doesn’t mean you can’t make money, but I prefer a consistent line of work) might load one day and then wait around once your empty that not good to me.

    3) I like to see what the equipment is like, is it new or slightly older equipment? Worn out or still effective, this is kinda irrelevant these days as just about every company has newer equipment even the Union companies have decent running trucks, they may not look like it, but they are effective and well taken care of. The trucks I drove at Cassens were in great shape and always road worthy.

    4) notice I didn’t say anything about money because normally, if those things line up, I can figure out how to make some money. It’s about learning their system and utilizing it to my benefit. I never listen to other drivers and their complaints because it situation is isolated.
