There was a lot of sitting and the drop and hook was usually a nightmare when it comes to finding a decent trailer. Often you are given loads that take a couple days to deliver but you are already the 2 days late when you are assigned the load. Dispatch is terrible with the constant " hot load, hurry hurry" not given time to eat or even stop at a bathroom. Dispatch expects you to deliver a load and set the time by the miles not allowing for road construction or condition.
If you have a family this might not be the place for you, especially if you're a single parent or a. dual working household. Also if you are female be prepared to make a lot less for a better job done than your male counterpart.
Everyone I work with here is awesome, nice, understanding. Great people, great work. Pay is decent, hours are low. Hardest part of the job is when a lot of roads get icy and lots of truckers call in at once. Most enjoyable part of the job is how relaxed everything is.

I was told it would be the hardest job I would ever have. The trucking industry is a non-stop 24/7 juggernaut. It brought the best out in me. If not for some changes in my life, I'd go back in a second.
Productive Company, keeps you involved asking your opinion

Currently i am working in covenant and I have problem with my new fleet manager. Me and my partner we believe he don't lik us. Every time our load is gonna canceled from dispatcher and if u said why? I don't know the reason. With my previous manager our service was above 99% but now new fleet kill our strength. And they don't care if u have family emergency. They will find load to u and send u to home but it take a while. Am been with covenant more than a year and now am gonna leave them because i fell uncomfortable. All the fleet are busy takes long time to reply ur question.
