    Sharkey is a fairly local company for me.....I have had many friends who worked for them and all had little to complain about. Most complaints revolve around slow, ugly trucks painted to match a John Deer. Sister companies to them are Sisbro and Kore or is it Core?

    One of my best friend drove for 'em for two years or so. He really liked it there, only left because a friend of his started up a small company and my buddy likes to run renegade style. Sharkey was pretty lenient on logs, but he wanted more. He made good money with 'em and was treated very fairly and he got home every weekend.
     
    ichiban Thanks this.

    A very close friend of mine worked for Sharkey for a couple of years. He had a very good experience with them and only left to pursue his dream of being an owner operator. They paid well and he had great benefits with them. He was also home every weekend, unless he chose not to be. He lived in Missouri while he worked for them. If there's anything else you'd like to know about Sharkey, I'll be happy to answer any questions as best as I can. My friend who worked there is like a brother to me and if I don't have the answer I can easily get it from him.
