    Hi!

    I am looking for info from actual Robbie D Wood drivers.
    We are relocating from SLC, UT. to Spanish Fort / Daphne Al. area next month.
    I have 5+ years experience in HAZMAT tankers, But have never been paid percentage. Always mileage and/or hourly.

    Sooo, the reviews online are pretty good for RDW, but I would like some feedback from ACTUAL drivers.
    Any feedback you can give would be greatly appreciated. IF you do not want anything public, please PM me. I am wanting to start working asap after we get settled and from what I'm seeing online, this seems to be a "better than most" company. But I'm leary of online reviews also. I know they can be skewed by other companies and by the ( "they suck because they didn't kiss my butt 24/7") type of drivers.

    So, I'm looking to hear from ACTUAL (past or present) RDW drivers.

    Thank you!

    All I can tell you is they have an outstanding reputation here in Alabama and their Facebook page (if you are in to that) gives the impression they are a very decent company.
     
    All-American82 Thanks this.

    I actually had to look that one up. I had no idea where Emelle was. Seeing it on the map, I know the general area.

    No, not any particular town, just "in general" across the state. Robbie D has very nice trucks and a variety of trailers (vans, tanks, flatbeds, dump wagons and those are only what I've seen). They have always had nice trucks, going back to their gray w/red striped KW W900L days. Can't remember what they were running prior to that.
     
    shogun Thanks this.

    Can't say but an old associate now works for them [sales] and he wouldn't be there if they were not first class! I know how he rolls.

    Just moved to Mobile from Colorado Springs and am looking into RDW as well. Did you start there or find a different company?

    Well. After repeated attempts to contact the terminal manager to answer a couple questions and no response. I went somewhere else.

    The recruiting department said that he would contact me twice and never did and I left three messages at the terminal itself to contact him directly and never received a response back.

    It takes approximately an hour to fill out just one application completely. And quite honestly I don't want to waste their time nor mine if I can't get questions that are important to me answered

    By all accounts they are a good company. So if you can get ahold of someone good luck to you!
