with so much talk about good companies and bad, for me its about the customers your dealing with. ive dealt with big retailers and small contracters as a company driver, i prefer smaller, i recently delivered a load to brooklyn ny, a load that nobody else wanted, but for me i liked it better than alot of these bigger corporations, i pulled up on the street (no dock) the guy came out who could barely speak english, i handed him the paperwork, he got his guys, they unloaded me and he signed my paperwork and i was gone, no nonsense, no waiting for paperwork for hrs, no lined up behind 10 other trucks, just the way i prefer it.
so my question is what kind of customers do u deal with at landstar doing dry van? i know u pick your loads and if u dont like a customer u dont have to go back again,but my main concern with any job is the customers you are servicing. you can lease a truck on a schneider and they have plenty of freight but its the customers that worry me there. it seems like they are always dealing with places that have too much going on and there is too much confusion which is what comes with those kinds of places, so if anyone wants to answer the same question about the customers at schneider feel free.
and dont b be one of those drivers who says its the same everywhere because as far as the companies ive worked at its not. we cant change alot of the nonsense in the truckin industry but we can choose where to work and what kind of customers we want to deal with, and thats what makes the biggest difference for me as far as job satisfaction.
