    Dollar General had their own fleet years ago. Equipment was old but paid pretty decent. Then they abolished that and brought in the mega’s to take over. That ended up being a screwed up mess so they started their own fleet again. Problem is they pay the fleet drivers about the same that the rookies at the mega’s were getting paid.

    It sounds like you're really unhappy with your job at this company. Perhaps you should try to find a trucking job that is a better fit for you, maybe with better pay and benefits, and more professional treatment by the management, of course...
    Good luck job hunting, and keep us posted!
    Maybe we will read about it on the
    Discuss Your Favorite Trucking Company
    forum in the future.

    This is twice in your short time on this forum that you've mentioned this. You realize we have an entire subforum dedicated to Bad Companies.

    I’ve done the DG account. Indeed, it’s garbage.

    You forgot to mention who your slinging that 40,000lb load 1 case at a time out the back door held in by plywood sheets too. On the Erie Pa & Binghamton NY run I did it was people who couldn't keep the rollars clear, because they were old or weak. USX offered it as a dedicated run that payed $1000 per wk 19yrs ago & they couldn't keep drivers so they forced OTR suckers like me to do it if we unloaded in Ohio.
    You know something is up when your running coast to coast drop & hook & your deadheaded to Zanesville OH & can't get off that DG loop unless you threaten to quit

    Sounds pretty bad, no one who has done any research should work there.
