    If any Martin-Brower drivers can tell me some info about the company-
    . I’m in GA, would it be an OTR, local or regional?
    Starting pay?
    QOL?
    What kind of equipment?
    Manuals or Auto?
    Driver cameras?
    What kind of pay can I expect after a few years?
    Overall do you like it there? How does the dispatch/company treat you?

    I worked in Manassas for a very short time. The pay was good. Its called component pay. Basically paid by the run. Case count ,stops and bulk coke unload added together . Each house is different. Manassas is union. Money was good but they treat you terrible. Not saying where you are is like that but I would look at golden states food first. Lot more freedom and more relaxed

    And yes they had driver facing cameras. If you have a blue tooth on and the camera comes on that's a write up. Take a sip of drink and the camera goes off that's a write up. Eat something and the camera goes off that's a a write up. Basically If that camera is triggered and you are doing anything but holding that steering wheel its a write up. When I say having a blue tooth on I'm not talking about being on the phone. If it's just on you it's a write up

    Georgia terminal you will be on Chic-fil A routes is my guess. Split work weeks but pay is good at most MB terminals. Benefits r average at best n yes u have drive cams in the trucks. Be local maybe overnight occasionally but QOL not great but what driving job that pays anything is? Not a bad outfit. Easiest food gig I have ever done but hours r very demanding. Have newer managers n trans manager is good man came from my facility in Fairfield.

    Yeah, I am pretty sure that means quality of life. I personally refer to it as work/life balance.

    I’ve seen MB with a McDonald’s trailer parked at the hotel I stayed at in SD. Only place they don’t have McDonald’s I know off is Colorado and surrounding states. Mile Hi has that account and from what I understand won’t ever loose it. I guess MB has the rest of the US.
