As some may or may not know. I quit my OTR Job with Holland Enterprises back in May.
I went to McLane Southwest out of SWDC (Temple TX)
The good you will make decent money during the summer, or if you miraculously stay busy.
I got a decent sign on bonus.
None of that stuff matters if I can't get decent regular paychecks.
They do offer a guaranteed pay but that's not really enough. (it's like $1100/week).
To start off I had to wait a whole month just for the background check.
Since they opened the New DC in Fort Worth. And the new bid couple months ago,
Work has been scarce on the extra board. Which is what new guys are stuck on.
Trucks and Trailers are absolute #### to be honest.
This is the most disorganized company I have ever worked for.
Not working much. And now there's a shortage of trucks..
I was told to come in at 4a this morning. It's now almost 7a. Still waiting on a truck.
I was worried about the physical nature of the work but it's not too bad really. They just can't get their #### together.
Still waiting on a decent dolly which was promised when I started. .
Definitely not what they made it out to be.
