So I drive for another company currently and have liked some of the things I have read on Anderson Trucking Service on line. I would like to hear from any current and former drivers on that they liked and disliked about the company and how you feel you were treated as a driver. I know that you cannot always believe what any company says as far as pay and what their drivers make per mile, week, or year for that matter. Especially when they compare it to the top 10% of their drivers. I mean that isn't a large number when you consider that they probably have a number of drivers that do not fall in that category. So this is the first step in that process to hopefully help me make a decision regarding them. I also DO NOT want to do the lease purchase option with them or anyone for that matter. I have been told numerous times that it is a bad idea, so I will want to be a company driver with them. Thank you for your time.

Good company

Can you please elaborate on your answer? Do you work there now or in the past? Did you feel they treated you well and kept you rolling? Thanks.

I have never worked for them, but I know 2 ppl who have /do from this site.

One is still active Rob Dragon breather, did. And the other still does.

Both have always had good things to say.

Their system of moving you "up" to specialized freight is cool, and they have a unique pay structure. Most of their drivers I talk to, like it there. The ones that don't, well, terminal rat comes to mind at some point during the conversation.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

They're a very good company. They pay well, run solid equipment and have an excellent training and follow up program for flatbed securement etc. They also have a program which works you up in over dimensional freight that can fairly quickly work you into their specialized division running 4 axle trucks and multi axle trailers.

Thank you both for the helpful tips and info. It's always nice to hear from other drivers that have had good experience with a company. Plenty of bad reviews on most of them, but it's always hard to trust that cuz if someone doesnt want to work then of course they find some reason to bad mouth the company.

One issue that I have with them currently is the recruiter I spoke with already has not responded to either the email or the phone call I made to him. I mean i can't start right away since i want to return home first and let my company know so I can return their truck. So it makes me feel like it's a waste of his time. I do have the number of another recruiter with the same company. Would either of you call that one or just say forget it since it feels like he doesnt have the time for me?
