High salary, respectful team, reliable company

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I have worked with many companies but ever since I started working with Highlight Motor Group, I feel i am one of their own. Dispatches and mechanics are friendly and respectful to each other, equipment is great and there is always something to do. The salary is great but you actually need to work hard for it!

Good place to work

Pretty easy to get hired but need effort to stay for a while. Saw a lot of people coming in and out. Good place to work, never had any issues, colleagues are nice, straight forward responsibilities.

Quit after almost 5 years working for HL

The same wage per mile for the entire time I was there ,despite multiple requests for a raise. They withdraw ,a $50 , so called "insurance " from drivers paycheck. Basically stealing . They raised mine to $250 recently and never explained why . Also removed my 2 cent safety bonus. You will be doing city work ,multiple drops , in the L.A and San Francisco Bay area among other places , yet paid the same per mile rate and not the usual ,city driver , per hour rate. They don't clean spare trucks when your regular truck is offline for repairs even when you notify them several days before your trip . Overall just an unpleasant place to work at . Only stayed this long for the great mileage, 5000 miles +, and HL's proximity to where I live.

Enjoyed the work

I enjoyed the company. They gave me a start when no other company would. I left due to the ridiculously low rate of pay. As well as the dispatch and customs department. Stuck at borders and truck stops withought pay.

Pros

Worked alone

Cons

Long days, little pay. Dead ended to often with no pay.

Rewarding job for those who is ready to work a lot...

I'm happy that I was a part of HMG team. I have my personal reasons to leave and this really upsets me, it will be hard to find a job like this. My colleagues were like friends to me, new car park, very comfortable working hours. Wish them all the best.

Pros

Friendly atmosphere, new cars, busy but rewarding job

Cons

I haven't discovered them

I enjoy cross border driving.

I enjoy cross border driving and flexible schedule. I can make as much money as I want. I have been HMG driver for over three years. There are superior driver support systems in place to minimize downtime and maximize miles. They are all focused on driver success.

Pros

Money, Schedule, dedicated truck

Steady and good salary

Usually I start on Sunday or Monday morning and head out with a loaded trailer from Friday pick up to destination. Deliver next morning in the USA. Then drive to next pick up and load. Several trips per week is common if you want it.All drivers and dispatcher seem friendly and helpful and willing to answer questions about loading. Dedicated beautiful new trucks, and designated trailers are nice so you know what equipment you have at all times.
