“I started on the 4×4 schedule. I have a family and knowing when I’d be home and when I’d be out was really enticing to me with my first driving job. It’s good money, but for me, it’s more about getting home as often as possible. Anything I’ve needed, management and dispatch have bent over backwards to help me out.”

“With DTI, I feel like I’m well taken care of. When I saw that they had a four [days] on, four [days] off option, I was like, ‘I’m going to start with that’ because you can still make decent money and then still do what you like to do. It’s kind of like the best of both worlds.”
