    I work for Ozark for a second time.everything on here is true from everyone that has posted.it works for some people and not for others.if u play it right they will keep u moving.they have lots and lots of freight.i take my ten then on the move again.i run what ever hours I have for the day then park.run run run that's what they like.the only problem I have is this nite and day stuff.to much nites.love fed ex hate running it at nite.good thing is that no one seems to hold a grudge.I got into it with load planner today and thought I was going to get the buisiness and ended up with a real nice run.great people here.u just have to take care of business and they will be good to u.I really love their shop here.they make sure u have everything u need to do the job.they give every truck a bag of lites in case one burns out.anything u need they give it to u.good place to work for the most part

    Hopefully, then you can't get a job
    drugs and trucks don't mix. If you can't pass a drug test go flip burgers.

    Get off the high horse. If someone is in between jobs and choose to do stuff. That doesn't mean they will do it when it's time to grind, because there's a dollar to find.

    Anyone know how long their training is? Do they do a normal DOT physical or one of those endurance test and check BMI?

    I have been here for a couple weeks now. I have a lot of issues. These are them 1.They do not pay you until your second week even if you turn in the loads. They have a lot of short miles and they do not pay for dock times or waiting. One day you are running days then they swap to overnights.

    I've been with Ozark for two years, so far. They have treated me well, the money ain't bad, I average 2500 to 3000 miles per week. My dispatcher asks when I need home and I give him a date and he gets me there on time. Are they perfect? No, but what trucking company is? bottom line...I have no plans to go anywhere else.

    Well the only reason I ask about the hair test because I have long hair and don't want chunks cut out of it but any who I'm a gas hauler so you can keep your burger comments to yourself...I make big money doing it...so what to say now
