Employee Review

Love this podcast. It’s very informative for even an employee since sometimes we’re so busy in our on jobs we don’t get to hear everything that goes on all the time. Hope all Owner Operators can take advantage of this and use it as a tool for learning and gaining information.

Great job keep it up

I look forward to every Wednesday morning to have a new episode to listen to. Jeremy does a fantastic job and the sound is as great as other very well known and highly produced podcasts. Great information for owner operators of the Oakley family. It’s very nice to hear about things going on that normally would be kept from the drivers.
