The pay is excellent. The equipment is good. The majority of loads are Drop/Hook. The planners keep you moving. But the best thing at Barr-Nunn is that you are treated as a person, not a number behind a wheel!

I drive a company issued truck. I haul alot of LTL purchase freight. These loads are time sensitive, and we have to keep moving in order to keep on schedule. My wages have improved about 50% since comming to Barr Nunn, compared to previous trucking companies. I just returned a 2011 International with over 500,000 miles and was issued a 2015 Freightliner. The company cares about SAFETY, and will reward the drivers for safe, law abiding operation of their equipment. I would recomend this trucking company to a friend.

Much better than most

Barr-Nunn does so many things right, but does have a few areas where they could make some positive changes. The good?...excellent pay, a truly superior hometime plan, an awesome breakdown - pay policy that takes the panic out of the equation, dispatchers who know you and treat you with respect and good old Midwestern politeness. I could go on; there is lots to praise here. The bad ? No short-term or long-term disability insurance is offered, even at the employee's expense. The average age of a truck driver today is 56-57 years old, an age when surgeries and age related medical events (heart attacks, etc) are increasingly likely to occur. Offering this simple benefit would alleviate a lot of worry and fear about what would happen if a driver suddenly found himself unable to work for a month. Secondly, there is a lot of switching back and forth between day-time driving and night-time driving, often on back-to-back-to - back days, resulting in sleep deprived driving, and increased health risk due to inconsistent sleep patterns. But Barr-Nunn has shown a consistent pattern of finding ways to improve life for drivers, and these items I mention may one day change. Overall, I give them 4.5 stars....hey, nobody's perfect, but this is as close as you're likely to come.
