    Please tell us more. How's the pay & benefits? What do you like best so far, and what is everyone's biggest gripe?

    I’m under training pay of $240/day for 5 days/week, but drivers have been under load pay until next week when the company converts all drivers to hourly. Starting hourly pay is $26/hr with O/T after 40/week. There’s 3 different schedules: Sun-Thurs, Tues-Sat, and Fri-Mon. The first two are 5-12’s, the last is covering the off days for those schedules and is 4-12’s. I’m on the 4-12’s. The 5-12’s is either day or night shift, something like 0200-1400 or 1400-0200. The 4-12’s is 2 days followed by 2 nights. Benefits start after 1-2 months, depending on hire date. The benefits look really good. Quarterly $600 safety bonuses plus 5 and 10 year huge safety bonuses.

    What I like the best so far is the amount of driving I get to do. When I did LTL P&D, it was mostly drive a few mins then do a pickup/delivery, repeat 20-30x per day. Now it’s gonna be 3 loads and 3 drops, usually 1.5 hrs each way for 300+ miles/day. But I drove 400+ miles the other day, cause I’m going to 4 different locations during training.

    It’s hard to say what everyone’s gripes are, but some of the load pay didn’t make sense, and I know that was an issue.

    From what I can tell so far, it seems like a really good company.

    Sounds really good. Please keep us updated, as I'm thinking about maybe applying myself.
