This company has been very good to me over my long tenure here. Always get time off when needed, family is very important to me and they recognize that, and accommodate as needed.
Trucking can be a very tough job at times with long hours, difficult working conditions, from severe weather, blizzards, driving snow, dust storms, extreme heat, big city traffic. All part of trucking well beyond the companies control, I'd like to see detention pay for closed roads due to mother nature, or motor vehicle accident's, the industry is ever changing, evolving, and moving forward so I feel it's only a matter of time until we are compensated for this kind of things. They move a little slow with these type of things. They have been innovative and forward thinking with some things such as there sleep apnea program where they tested all current employees, and if found to suffer from apnea provided a machine at no charge to them and with that installed power inverters in all trucks so you could power your machine if you had one provided to you. As well as all future employees were tested prior to commencement of work and provided a machine also free of charge only stipulation was if you left before six months you were required to pay for it. They've adapted to some of the new technologies, adopting automated transmissions (I'm no fan of by any means but that's a personal preference) I applaude them for adopting it, I'm not sure they'll go forward with them, they haven't worked well with our very specialized field of liquid tankers. They've been testing disc brakes, adopted led headlights, forward facing recording cameras, and an increasing amount of lift axels on new equipment purchases. I find them at times very slow to get somethings changed, and at times they seem to be stuck in the past. No company is perfect but what I'm expecting and or looking for fit me very well, and I very much enjoy the work and specialized field I'm in. Overall a very great company to work for and with, and ive been treated very well and fairly, very happy here after all these years.
