This was a bad job from the beginning. You can make a ton of overtime thanks to how amateur the management are. There is no support when you are broke down. Drivers have tons of more responsibilities then any other trucking job. This is NOT a trucking company. You are on your own when stuff breaks down. This is a very dangerous job. Its amazing no one has been killed here. Many of the office people are book smart but don't have any field experience to relate to how bad it is. There is also a lot of corruption by family members working here. You have brother/brother and father/son managers working here. A typical week here, you leave out Sunday late morning to drive to the work location. Work Monday-Friday for the railroad, then drive home in a rental car late Friday night. When they are short handed , you stay on the road for a month straight and don't get paid to sit in the hotel on the weekend. It's not uncommon to wait 1-3 weeks on the truck to be repaired when you are broke down. the company does guarantee 40 hours a week pay. The training here is only 1-2 weeks then you are on your own. They expect you to clean your truck, car show style. they have cameras in the cab to spy on you and record the audio. the company speed limit is 67 mph, none of the trucks have good seats, so expect major back problems while driving. The final point I'd like to make is, you are going to be referred to as a "Scab" by the railroad people.
corrupt managers, no life, junk trucks, dangerous job, not enough training
