    I would say Nussbaum transportation is a very fair company to drive for. The Company is owned by us, the employees. Because it is owned by us it doesn't matter if you drive a truck, are in operations, maintenance or administration, we all work together for a greater purpose and treat each other with respect.

    The pay is very good and includes minimum guarantee pay, door to door not zip to zip miles pay, detention pay, layover/breakdown pay, pick up pay, delivery pay, trailer relay pay, trailer shuttle pay, and bonus pay.

    Getting home weekly is important to me and my family. Operations know it is important and does everything in their power to get me home. You can of course stay out on the road as long as you like.

    Without getting too detailed we have an Employee Stock Option Plan, 401k with match, full coverage health insurance including health, dental, and vision plans. paid vacation, 8 paid holidays and more.

    I believe in my heart there is not a better company to drive with.

    I’m currently trying to get hired on right now. Do you run van or flatbed? I know their flatbed is very small.

    I will say.. I don't think I've ever had a negative experience with a Nussbaum truck and I've never seen any of your all's equipment in rough shape.

    The trailer designs are awesome, trucks are gorgeous for an aero truck, and the drivers are always respectful. Only con I could think of is you all are governed pretty slow, but that doesn't matter if you all are getting paid well.

    Top tier carrier IMO, from an outsider POV.

    Nussbaum looks the part. I remember one of their drivers tried to recruit me to drive for them in order to get their "black quota" up lol. They have nice equipment and they cover some territory for real. Never met an unhappy driver with them. That red is sharp!

    I looked into them several years ago and from what I read their drivers were generally happy but they were a bit on the edge between caring about their employees and being a nanny. Lots of color commentary about your weight and personal habits.
    Back then I was half again more the man than I am today so I didn’t pursue it. Like I said though, my impression was if you are a good fit for the culture you’ll do well.
    Tadakatsu Thanks this.

    I reached out to Nussbaum recently and everything looked good aside from the fact that they use driver facing cameras and their recruiter told me that they only activate in the event of certain event. I was told the same thing when I worked for Roehl Transport about their driver facing cameras and only after I began working for them I found out that they use that camera to spy on their drivers all the time. I don't know if Nussbaum is similar but when I hear someone mention "nanny" to describe the kind of culture they have in their company my ears perk up. My hometown is in Central Illinois and my brother went to school at Illinois State so I'm very familiar with the area they are based out of and I would be very happy to work for them but the camera thing is a deal breaker for me.
