A walk on the ‘Darkside’ - working for a small company

LDRSHIP - Thanks for posting on this topic.

I have worked for two different small companies as a company driver. The first one was a good company. The second and current company I just started with a few weeks ago, so we'll see how things shake out.

With small companies it's important to do your homework- - Look up safety records - Interview the company - For example, I will speak with the safety director and the shop manager when visiting the company. It's also an opportunity for the company to get to know you.

As in most endeavors, the more information you can gather the better.

I'm currently driving for Quality Logistics LLC out of Englewood, Co They have been in business since 1959, are debt free, have good accounts and run late model Volvos.

Hope this helps.

It is going ok. The only part that is annoying is, every time a repair is needed listening to the Boss man complain. Then try to find the cheapest half fix he can. It is what it is though.

I survived my 1st year otr

Congratulations! Well done!

Hey everyone been off a while but have been very busy. Surviving my first year otr. I say it like I did because that’s what it feels like I didn’t make it I survived. It was hard but it got easier as time went along. Still kicking with J.B. hunt and couldn’t be happier. I’ll keep it short for now but just wanted to say thanks to my tt family for helping me get this far. Still accident free and hope it stays that way. Y’all stay safe and I’ll try and pop in more often to say hi!!!

Quality Logistics LLC

I appreciate the feedback. I don't have a problem with the training. I know I have some rust to knock off and a lot to learn. I'm surprised that some companies have you run as a team with your trainer. I don't understand how that works with a trainer in the sleeper berth when I'm driving. Also, do people sleeping in the SB going down the road get quality rest? Thanks

Quality Logistics LLC

Hello, I'm looking at getting back into a truck after a three-year break. I previously drove for three years, pulling mostly flatbed and pneumatic trailers. I can't seem to find a flatbed company that will take me since I've been out of a truck for over three years, unless they want me to train for 6 to 10 weeks running as a team at $600.00 week. That scenario just rubs me the wrong way.

I have found a trucking company called Quality Logistics out of Englewood, Colorado pulling dry van trailers. Has anyone had experience with this company?

I really appreciate this website and look forward to your feedback.

Best,

Colorado
