They seems to be a very good company. I have got a job offer from them and really am considering it. I know no company is perfect, I am just looking to get treated fairly and not get ripped off.

My instructor at CDL school (a recently retired driver) said that late in his career, he had spent 2 years researching the best companies to work for, and he finally chose to switch to System because they were "the best company out there."

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Awesome, I really appreciate you letting me know. They do seem to be a very good company. I will update once I start my orientation. I went for it and accepted their job offer!

We have a driver here that works for them she hasn't been on in a little while but she always seems to happy there. They have a small terminal where I live in Gary, IN and all there equipment seems to look good and be well maintained.

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.

You'll go through roughly 4 days of learning how the company works and watching safety videos, a physical, and a urinalysis. After that you will be out with a trainer for 3-8 weeks depending on how well you learn everything and based on how your trainer feels about your ability. I can go into more detail tonight when I have more time. They have been very good to me so far. There had been a few issues but nothing too big. Feel free to email me if I don't respond on here Shane.Schroth@gmail.com That good to anyone and if you do decide to go with them list me as your referral please.
