What is the home time?
We require our drivers to be out for a minimum of 3 weeks and you earn 1 day off for every week that you are out. The reason is because of the long loads that we have, many over 2,000 miles. We primarily look for loads that go cross country and that makes it nearly impossible to get drivers home more often than that.
What type of equipment and how fast do they go?
Our fleet has 2020 to 2023 automatic Freightliner Cascadias and we are phasing out the 2020s. They are governed at 68 mph and have the PasSmart system that allows for 70 mph for 30 minutes a day to pass slower vehicles. We also have Great Dane trailers with Carrier reefer units that are no more than 3 years old.
Where do you go?
All of the lower 48 states.
What is your hiring area?

Do you allow pets and riders?
Yes, we prefer only 1 pet and 1 passenger over 16 years of age. Eligible from day 1 of employment.
How do you get to orientation?
We try to use rental car in most cases, and flights as a secondary option. A bus or train can be used if neither of those options work. If you don't come by rental car, the 1st load after orientation will be routed through your home to get the rest of your things and your significant other or pet.
When does orientation start and how long is it?
It can start either Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday and it is 2 full days.

What do you haul?
Most of our freight is temperature controlled but there are some dry loads too. No produce. Everything is full truckload.
How many miles can I get?
You can get as many as you can legally drive. We normally dispatch you on your next load the day before the scheduled pickup. We want to keep you moving. Our drivers normally get 3,000+ miles every week.

Do you pay salary to drivers?
We pay our drivers by the mile, but we have an optional guaranteed $1,500 per week for your first 12 weeks to get started. One condition is you must be available for dispatch the entire week to earn the entire amount.
