    Yes this company is a bad company to work for. The owner was handed the company on a silver platter and has never driven a truck in his life. When he talks to his driver's and customers he talks down to them like he is so much better than them and does use alot of foul language. He does not want to hear anything anyone else has to say and will not let anyone say anything without cutting them off.
    The company's operations manager is also a real piece of work. He says he was a driver for years and has gone all over the country but the only driving he did was drove for prairie line. He got moved into the office because he and the owner are best friends. He should have been fired because when he was a driver every time he got in a truck he broke things.
    These two care about nothing but their load. They think that they are the only ones to make the decision on whether you run or not in bad weather.
    Cole isn't afraid to tell you not worry about the e-log because he will change it to meet what they need.
    This company has a very high driver turn over. Alot higher than the big companies have. This is because of their owner and operations manager treating drivers with total disrespect. Every week they loose 2 to 3 drivers out of a fleet of 20 trucks. They are now hiring driver's with no tractor trailer experience because they can force them to do what ever they want.
    They don't care about how much you screw up as long as their loads are moved. They don't want you to be able to think for your self or have any real experience because they want to control you and your every move.
    They lie to you about their pay and maintenance.
    Just beware.

    Day one poster singing the praises of the company? Check!

    Saying they know who the original poster is and talking bad about then? Check!

    Logging in with a company email? Well, only the admin knows for sure.

    So two former drivers say there is disrespecting or berating of drivers. Then @sda640 is here talking bad about a driver. Coincidence? Maybe it's a culture thing.

    Sounds like an office person found out the company was being talked about on here.

    Equipment says a lot about a company....all I had to do is see their equipment going down the road to know I probably wouldn't go drive for them....that and unloading next to one of their drivers who "got mad while loading" and forgot to lift up the Overhead Catwalk and ripped his tank ladder almost off his trailer. :eek:
