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 your just starting in the trucking industry this is a wonderful company to start working for. Late model tractors and trailers throughout the company. Great home time when earned and a chance to see the United States and all it has to hold.

They are the worst people to work for wouldn't send my worst enemy there to work they have four people skills in the office and they act like they own everybody that comes to work for them did not like it at all did not like it at all did not like it at all did not like it at all. The worst company I've ever worked for my life
INCIDENT-RESPONSE CENTER COORDINATION (Current Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – 3 January 2018
Good Company to start working with, but the management could manage better and the work load could be better as well. Everyone in the IRC doesn't get paid enough to do all the work load that is wanted.
Pretty standard trucking job. Its all about your work ethics if you are going to succeed with any trucking company. This was my first CDL job and I enjoyed working for them . I would recommend Covenant.

I had to go out of state away from my family to work here , 5 weeks out at a time before home time. Trucks and trailers were always breaking down. I seen more motels in my short time with this company then i have ever had in my life.
Long haul truck driver (Former Employee) – Chattanooga, TN 37419 – 13 November 2017
During my over the road orientation, I had 2 trainers quit for better jobs and got to see my family for 3 hours in a 2 month time period. Dispatch failed to communicate on multiple occasions on updates about load cancellations and changes. Was stuck in a city for a 3 day weekend with no load, had a distributor tell me the load had been cancelled when management had "forgot" to update us earlier.

I really love working here and the only reason I am having to leave is sleep apnea and im unable to sleep with the mask on the truck it dries out my eyes, and as a result I am unable to maintain a dot medical for my class a license and there is no in house jobs I qualify for.
Great pay, very friendly people, its like your part of a big family.
maybe if you don't want to be gone for a period of time from your home.
