Willing to hire new drivers so a good place to gain experience. Low rate of pay was main reason for quitting. Decent well maintained equipment with their own mechanics.
Pros
good equipment
Cons
rate of pay

They dont care if you get demerits to cover for expired cvips or other major issues.
if you're new, you're going to spend a lot of times stranded without loads at gas stations without pay.

pay is garbage. my advice, find a better company. they will hire another driver to replace you as soon as its time for your raise.

theyre not gonna spend anything on you including ppe, even though theyll say its on them.
Pros
good trucks
Cons
selfish

It's long haul so the home time is going to be little but everyone is great to work with. It's a family operation so you're more than just a body filling a seat. They care about their staff and in turn I think the staff care about the management. I would reccomend them.

Family run Canada and USA company. Great drivers. owner has very high and sometimes unreachable goals. his wife comes in and snoops through your desk at night. If you lock any of your drawers to keep personal info safe. she accuses you of hiding drugs in your desk. and wants you let go.
Pros
Drivers
Cons
Owners

This place is a good place to start learning the industry if you dont have experience. Lack of communication and too many family members involved in the office made it difficult to do or say anything in privacy.

Must be able to learn quickly and plan ahead to arrive at destinations on time. One must have the ability to expect the unexpected and perform at a high level in all type of weather conditions.
Planning proper load placement and securement while working in harsh conditions.

Seeing places that one would not normally get to see without planning a vacation.
Pros
Working with little supervision
Cons
Long stretches away from home
