The future of the trucking industry is bleak.
Driver (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 26 October 2016
Expect 700$/week net, no benefits. You work 6 days on, 1.5days off. Or 14 on, 1.5 off.
The company is garbage. No care or pride is taken at any level. The office staff are more valuable than the drivers. The office staff are paid 33$+/hr Ave. Where drives are paid 17$/Ave.
They can only retain people with no experience and immigrants.
They expect you to lick the truck clean for 10¢ and be proud of the lick job.
Only benefit is there is no boss directly yelling at you and you don't have to put up with idiots directly all the time.
Perfect job if your homeless and have a class 1.
I feel bad for owner/operators and lease/operators thinking they are benefiting.
Seclusion, a place to call home
Too many to list (bison=walmart of truck driving)
