David, it's a small operation. If you've ever worked for a small trucking company then you know there are a lot more issues to deal with. If you want to be successful at trucking you need to figure out how the company you are currently with does things. "Good" companies generally grow into big companies. It's just a natural progression for a well managed profitable operation with employees who are doing well and earning good money. "Bad" companies struggle, have issues with paying their bills, and generally experience little or no growth, wich keeps them small.

There is this unexplained mythical misunderstanding among some truck drivers that makes people look for this vague and nonexistent "family atmosphere" at a smaller company. It's like chasing after the wind - you'll never catch it. The way to establish yourself in trucking is to learn how these large trucking companies operate and prove yourself valuable to them. Once you've done the hard work of competing with the best of the best and proven yourself worthy of Top Tier status, you'll find your wanderlust and your misunderstandings about trucking companies will fade.

You can make great money with these big trucking companies. Don't fall for the nonsense. Learn how to be the best of the best. These large companies will treat you right and pay you well when you are worth their attention. Moving to a small operation will never solve what you perceive as your issues. It's typically the underperforming drivers who are always on the hunt for a "small company who knows their name and has a family atmosphere." It's a wild goose chase that yields no golden egg.

Prove yourself. Stop trying to prove your company. Any big company like Schneider, Swift, Prime, or Knight has nothing to prove. They've already established their dominance in a very demanding and challenging business. It's almost always the driver who is not up to speed and competitive. Focus on being productive and your vain search for trucking success will end.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.
