    They have tons and tons of trailers due for PM’s all the time and you run literally 14 hours a day/ three loads a day for 1300 gross weekly. I hooked up to a trailer to deliver that had a brake shoe 2 inches off the drum and bent. So many trailers I’ve had to red tag it’s insane! Seen many come and go due to tractors not having annual inspection stickers done and breaking down. Luckily, I got a new tractor. Avoid like the plague!

    Hummmm..... I got a level 1 in Louisiana today. Had me down for nearly 45 minutes... creeper and all..... zero issues.
    Had a level 2 twice last year... One in MS & one in TN.... clean inspection. :dontknow:

    Maybe we're just working for a different group.

    Don’t go to Cedar Rapids area then. When I was still working there I got a message on their app saying they were almost in the level for DOT intervention. Plus, it’s a big company and you are just one driver who runs that equipment near their headquarters.

    3 loads a day and that's a bad company? Most city workers do 15 drops and 15 picks on a normal day.

    For 1050 take home a week? you think that’s good! That’s trash for the hours and miles you work.

    It’s a industry problem. The price of consumerist junk is going up but not the drivers pay. It’s bs. Add Brandon to the list of problems we have to worry about and pretty soon the industry will just collapse under its own weight.

    Actually, I am 550 miles from their headquarters. Now I'm not saying that you didn't have a bad experience or that you didn't have the issues that you say you did. I'm just saying that the 3 or 4 terminals that I know of.... don't have those issues.
    If I see an issue with a trailer, or truck for that matter, I report it to breakdown & either take it for repairs myself or they send mobile service out to fix it. Again, I am not saying that you didn't have a bad experience, I'm just saying... in my experience, they are a decent company and that they maintain our equipment. That's just my opinion.
