It will be one of the biggest regrets of your life if you do. They don't pay well or treat their drivers well at all.

Is that so? Did you drive for them before? I thought since it was a small company itd be a good place to work. Of course they'll tell you whatever you want to hear to get you in a truck.
Thanks.

Woodfield is a great place to work.
That is if you have no morals, are married and want to have an affair. There is so much drama out there it isn't funny.

I would like to say first and foremost, I work for Woodfield.#1, They dont hire west of I35 so the comments from Zenon, SaraJ and Saja are bogus. They are a great company to work for. Been driving for them for 11 years. It's trucking, of course your going to have good days and bad days but for 11 years 90% of mine have been good. GREAT MILES, I make a good living here.? for some of the responders... How many jobs have you had in the last 3 years?? Probably about 8-9 which means you will never be happy anywhere. Good luck to you driver and hope you find a home!

That means that you probably have your nose too far up the owners butt, you simply can't see past the brown that's gotten in your eyes.

I am a long time employee, and can say that they have been great. Over the road trucking is not easy no matter where or who you work for. Never been part of the drama... just be myself, do my job and cash my check. They were great for giving family time when I needed it, and going the extra mile in time of need. Any co. is going to have rules---you wouldn't believe how many people get fired for being late, driving way out of route for personal reasons, or irresponsibility with the owner's equipment. If you can't handle that, expect to be upset at any employer.

It would be my recommendation to call Woodfield and talk to recruiting. She can probably give you some names of drivers to talk to. The people here bad mouthing Woodfield are giving you their side of the story. I wonder if they are the ones that abandoned their truck, was terminated for late deliveries, ran their truck OUT of oil, had excessive accidents or too many points on their MVR's, couldn't log DOT compliant, drove a 95 thousand$ vehicle and trailer down a LOGGING road etc. Usually you don't hear the WHOLE story in forums such as these. But, if you call the recruiter,(and I challenge the ones that bad mouthed the company to do so)....She will be happy to give you the other side of the story. Woodfield is an awesome company that cares about their employees. Thanks!

Well,
I just signed on with Woodfield. I myself have the Truckin Man statement on my mind. Just be yourself and stay out of others business, run and get paid. Starr also said it correctly. There is usually something wrong with the situation that we don't all know. I just want to run the best I can and be a part of a good overall team, granted nothing is perfect and I am not either. I just want to contribute what I can and maybe that will be good enough to shed a little light on things. I am a good driver and have worked for alot of companies in the 13yrs I have been driving... Maybe this will be my home. I hope Woodfield does it for "ME" as an individual.

I tried Woodfield and wasn't happy there. There were some really nice people there and one that ran hot and then cold. I believe they are good for some people and some others just want more. Woodfield is a small company that has just a little growing to do. Get some things in place that will make others fit in a little better. There is a lease there that Woodfield needs to fix-up just a bit. They need to get rid of the part where it says you can take the truck you lease where you want to if not happy with the company. They also need to get rid of the other payment option because they won't honor it. I say if it's in the contract, then they should stand up and honor it. Payment option #2 is where the problem lies. Woodfield should just make it a walk away lease and be done with it. Don't get into storytelling and make the driver leasing the truck think they can do as he or she pleases, when that is just not the case. It is the way they want it or you can't do it. When in fact it states in the contract that either option can be checked. You may get bullied into doing it the way they want, but just that..bullied. You either check the option that woodfield or the other company takes the money out of your check or you're just not gonna lease a truck. If it is that way, why the heck is it even there in the contract in the first place?? There was another driver there that wanted to take his truck that he was leasing to another company. M.S. had someone run out and take the base plate off the truck so the driver couldn't go anywhere. What a fun place to earn money. I have moved on and I hope all goes well for others who go to Woodfield. It may just be the palce for "YOU", as we all are different and require different things.

Once again, only one side of the story from a disgruntled truck driver. The true story is these drivers are well aware of the terms of the lease they are signing. They may take the truck to any company that is "approved" thru Woodfield. "Approved" means any company that will assure us we will be paid for the truck. If that company won't deduct the payment from the settlement of the owner operator, why would we let our truck go? As for the base plate, Woodfield pays for those, when you break the lease with Woodfield, it stays here. What company doesn't take the plates back?? Woodfield is a great company for a driver that wants to work. We give drivers an opportunity to own their own truck, when some can't get or doesn't have the credit to do so on their own. The lease is designed to protect the operator/driver, and the company. Just like any job, some people fit better at Woodfield than others.

Agreed Starr,
I was not stating anything bad about the company. I said that it may be a much better match for someone else. Don't get any hard feelings over this. I did what i had to do. The company is fine and as i said the people there are nice. I am not angry or upset, nor any foul language used about this company. I didn't like the type of freight you all ran and decided that some of the things just weren't for me. The program you have will work for others, just not for me. Thanks for what you have done and I hope a continued success for you and all others at Woodfield.

I don't mind having a disagreement, but I will not be upset about this. M.Starr, I don't feel any bad feelings toward you or anyone else at Woodfield. Please understand that It just didn't click for "Me". Sorry if you may have misunderstood me, or what I said. Your point is and was taken with your interest in front of you. That is appreciated, and you are a stick your guns person. Glad I took this time and as i said, I hope your success continues..

I worked in the office at woodfield a few years back and wanted you people reading this stuff to know that the owners are good people & have gone out of their way to help people. They are good people to work for & they have morals! some people in Camden may be jealous of their success. Just see for yourself.
