“I’m extremely happy with the company so far; everybody seems really nice and it seems like the company really cares about its drivers.”

I have been working for Great Plains since the 1st of September when I left on my first load and I must say the hauls are very good and long!!!! As long as you deliver or let them know ahead of time on delivery time if you can’t make it you should not have any issues. The equipment is great! I love my 2014 freight-liner! I’m the 2nd person to drive it since it’s been new and it runs great! And the staff are all very nice at the terminal!!! I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone that’s interested…

I am going on my 3rd year of working at GPT. There is Peace & Quiet. My phone doesn’t ring because of the Qualcomm. I have never had a breakdown with my Freightliner. Mike tried to give me a new tractor this year and I said this one is just getting broke in. I made a 1400.00 dollar longevity bonus this year as well a raise every year I have been here.
