    From what others have posted it sounds like heniff doesn’t do profit sharing but maybe has a better 401k match. I don’t know if it’s better enough to make up the difference though.

    Did my first run with Peoplenet. It's awkward, but something I'll get used to.

    Just an FYI, if you use the ETT, estimated travel time, with the navigation, it's not anything like Qualcomm. You could always count on gaining 10 minutes or so per hour with the Qualcomm and being well ahead. Peoplenet is the exact opposite. It estimates like you're driving a 4 wheeler.

    I actually like the peoplenet, I’ve been on mine going on 2 months now. It does tend to go out from time to time, but other than that it is not to bad

    I was on time because I knew the drive time on the run. I'm not opposed to Peoplenet, it's just awkward the first time using it, especially with the response emails not populating and macros needing to be selected.

    There are some features I like, and some simply suck. No TC on drop down menu is annoying. No countdown clock while maps is up or during breaks kinda sucks too. I'll get used to it though.

    Second day with mine. I like it too. The hardware is light years better than the Qualcomm. It takes a while to figure out but I keep finding different ways to do things as I use it. I also like the fact that it doesn't talk at me through the truck speaker system all the time .

    I also got the camera installed. It's forward facing only with no audio.

    Which Superior terminals have good driver satisfaction and a reputation for good pay? Conversely, which terminals should be avoided at all costs?

    It's hard to say anymore. Superior as a company will be history by the by end of the year as the changeover to Heniff policies continues to take place. I would look for a strong presence of both Heniff and Superior trucks in an area.

    If you are a new driver Superior is a good way to start a trucking career. If experienced you might as well avoid learning things twice and start with Heniff.

    I'm becoming exceedingly frustrated with the 401k. It's been over two weeks since my 401k account has been funded but they keep taking the money out of my checks.

    I've asked and gotten nowhere. It's not just a me issue, several drivers are having the same issue.

    I don't mind the changes of policy, procedure, and equipment, I actually like a lot if them, but I have zero tolerance for a company getting lazy with my money.

    Yes, I do understand they legally have 30 days to make the deposit. However, it's unacceptable as a practice to me and shows a complete disregard for my additional retirement working capital.

    If the process isn't fixed, I'll be moving on at the end of the current quarter.
