Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TN – June 26, 2014
Pros: good company to work for good environment
I handled thousands of calls a day to advance money to truckers while out on the road till payday. Was a very stressful job an made lots of truckers mad when couldn't supply them money but always took care of what needed to be taken care of in a timely manner. Hardest part of this job was not being able to help them when they needed it.

Not a lot of waiting for loads. Team driving situation not preferred. Had good relationship with driver manager. Hardest part of job was being on the road for 3 to 4 weeks at a time. Enjoyed seeing a lot of country.
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TN – January 27, 2014
A typical day for me is pickup and deliver cargo on time to there destinations. After every load I complete a log book for DOT purposes. When I worked for Covenant Transport Inc. I was a certified driver student trainer and discretionary driver meaning I had the ability to make decision without calling the company . I had the opportunity to train diverse – more... personnel's to new levels of success . I learned that every load must be delivered on time an not a minute late. Management was very helpful when needed. The hardest part about the job was being in the bad weathers; like snowy weather, rainy weather, and high windy areas. You must stay focus and alert at all times. The enjoyable part was being a trainer and helping someone reach their goal. – less
Over the road driver (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TN – December 4, 2013
Not a great place to work if you want any kind of social or healthy life. You walk on egg shells and are always at a constant high level of stress. Best parts about the job is talking to customers, helping drivers, and only those few people not trying to brown nose.
Cons: i don't spend my hard earned cash on driver managers...
Typical day of work? Expect to get smart aleck responses when you are inexperienced and have to ask a question. What I learned: this company preached safety but then pushed us to drive before our resets were complete and they continued to do this with everyone until there were fatalities and accidents as a result of exhaustion, they continuously screwed – more... up our pay and when we asked payroll to check themselves got yelled at, were promised home time and then had to fight tooth and nail to get home (for example, I missed my brother's funeral - never even got to say goodbye while he was in the hospital a week prior to his death) What I learned: Best advice I could give a newcomer is to watch your money, remember that you are the one that will pay DOT if you are running illegal, so make sure that you are doing what DOT wants you to do and the company will just have to pout if they don't like it. Trucking is as hard as you make it, better companies are out there that will take on a student driver without making you go through hell - EPES for one... Management: in this company... leave them alone, they don't care, no such thing as an open door policy no matter what they say. My co-workers: I miss them... The hardest part of the job: Every day that you care about this company and put it above your family. The most enjoyable part of the job: the day I quit. – less
