    Default Sgt 2000

    Hey there I'm new to the forum and I'm just looking for some information on the company SGT 2000 and what to expect as a newbie if I was to go with this company, I've been talking to them and it seems like it be a good go but before I would like to get some feedback from some drivers that have worked for this company. I also heard they have a tough roadtest; does anyone know what that consists of?? I don't have much experience this is my first season as a driver. Any reply would be greatly appreciated.

    Don't know about them really, head office based out of Quebec. Heard they had some money issues a few years back. They where trying to cut maritime company hauling contracts to get into the market down here.. but ended up cutting themselves.. But now don't know how they stand..

    I started 6 months ago with SGT. Nice people to work for. Newbs get sh*tty trucks. Money is terrible when you start-500$ a week average for two months training then 7-800 a week on probation then 1000-1200 a week when full pay and benefits kick in.I work 21 days on and 7-8 off or you can move into your truck and run 6 months straight.
    Lots of Quebec,NY,NJ,MA,OH,PA with a long haul every two weeks or so. Good miles when your truck doesnt break down
    Im happy so far and getting great experience going forward. I really like how easy going it is. If you deliver freight with no bullsh*t nobody bothers you. Hope this helps. I think Kriska would be a good option for a rookie also. Their drivers seem happy and they get home every week if that is what you want.

    I think you'll do just fine. Don't worry about it. The road test can't be any worse than when you went for your license. Better a job than some have.
    Good luck to you. The company's been around for some time and maybe they have had financial trouble but they are still here, so they can't be all that bad.

    Your welcome The roadtest is easy. Fifteen minute drive on truck routes in Brampton. Just drive like you were taught and do a proper prework and dont forget under the hood! You will most likely test in a 2004 International with a 10 speed.
    If you have any questions feel free to ask.

    oh man I used to work for hat outfit. had so much fun so many awesome drivers- its what kept me going there. the trucks are all pieces of chit so you will be hanging out in St-Germain, Qc a lot fighting garage and dispatch to fix it- it's limke pulling teeth but just hold your ground. i'd tell dispatch "if the load was such a rush, then you'd give me a good truck" an to "La Garage" : i'm not going anywhere till this Pos is fixed and I will get my waiting time- if you dont want to pay my waiting time, then give me a good truck." that's my main pet peve with that outfit is the chitty green trucks. even the brand new petes got the pos c-15 re-gen cat motors. get 2 years and leave. If you fail their road test, find a new career- it friggin easy.

    15 Minutes? That's it?

    Jeesh, I did a 2 hour roadtest with Mackinnon today. That included my pre-trip, couple, roadtest etc. What the heck could a company tell about you in 15 minutes?

    My road test for my first job was 10minutes and it was just bob tailing around the block. My current job I didn't even roadtest. He told me to go get the truck and follow him to the shadow lines yard and when I got there he said "well you made it here, that must mean you can drive" lol
