    Not really a favorite, it's a job. Have seen posts in the past looking for updated info.

    been here a couple weeks so far and things are not bad. Truck is a 2014 T660 areocab w/ 10 speed manual.
    Standard aluminum 48 ft trailer, no tag axles here. All trucks have a puts some tricks pass, most have dynasis. No pressure pass but who cares if your legal and truck/trailer isn't junk.

    Dispatch is very hands off and I can go days without speaking to them. I am given a certain loaded mile limit and route myself to within or slightly over that. I fuel up where I want, within fuel network, truck drives 65 and pulls pretty good on hills loaded and best of all, they do not have that accursed on guard system.

    this company does not have night dispatch. All office staff are available 24 hrs however. One is expected to not need his hand held and take responsibility for his actions. Wreck the truck or damage a load, you pay for it. Go wildly out of route and pay for those extra miles. There are some where around 200 trucks. They do not have a school but will mentor experienced non flatbed drivers.

    all in all its a place to make money. It has its faults like any fleet. It's not the big fleets where the office controls your actions. It's a step up into big boy land.

    Nice, I'm not a fan of being hand held and force fed bad instructions. Was given a fuel stop a couple days back. South of Dallas 35W S, 12am and they are doing a shift change. Can't buy ANYTHING for 15-20 minutes, along with a pleasant don't give a crap attitude by the staff.

    It would be very nice to plan my own routes and fuel stops. But, I'm a rookie so, perhaps someday...

    What's a "puts some tricks pass?" And a "pressure pass?" I think you may mean "pre pass", but I can't decipher the code on the first one.

    This was a good starter company to work for to get my flatbed experience. I actually thought about hiring back on a couple weeks ago until they told me they require two weeks out now.
