Good pay for entry level. They will try they best to get you the best miles as possible. If you are looking for a good pay job after driver school, Covenant is for you. They team base mean if you like to solo, they are bad for you.

If you don't live close to a terminal you'll have trouble finding and keeping a co driver. Expect to take the Greyhound to and from your house if your co driver lives close to the terminal and you don't. Basically you have to work things out between you and your co driver.

This company was rude and obnoxious to its drivers. They expected the impossible and blamed the driver when the impossible was not done. They created ways to not pay the driver what they promised them. Thankfully I have had a much better experience with the companies I have driven for since leaving Covenant.
I really enjoyed the new trucks and how well they kept them serviced, I got along well with the staff, overall I felt like a family member until I had a mild stroke. I had been paying short term/long term disability, an was given a lot of red take. When doctor released me to go back to work Covenant refuse to hire me.

There was a lot of information to take in. I've learned that trucking is very prominent business and it depends on the effort you put into your craft. Management is exceptional, they really care about any obstacles that you may have to hurdle, and help you to find a way to accomplish any goal you might have. The family atmosphere is the culture you will adopt. Adjusting to driving over the road, and taking in all of the info given to you. Positive job security if trucking is what you want to do.
A typical day with Covenant you did not sit long waiting on loads. I started out there as a student. I experienced driving in different climates cities states highways and byways to reach all types of destinations. Management was helpful. workplace culture was professional and orderly safety major with company. The hardest part of the was leaving the company. The most enjoyable part of the job was the training with other co drivers.
