Team Drivers Testimonial

In this video, we sat down with team drivers Cindy & Eric Haugen. Cindy has been driving with Interstate for 6 years, and Eric just hit his 10 year anniversary. So far so good, they’re really happy with their experience at Interstate.

We wanted to ask them some questions, find out what they like, and hear about their working relationship with their fleet manager, Robert “TJ” Tjelde. We asked, they answered, and we even sat down with their fleet manager Robert “TJ” Tjelde to hear his perspective. There’s a great fishing story at the end, so make sure you watch the whole thing.

  • What do you like about Interstate? What would you tell someone who was just learning about Interstate? How are you treated? Do you feel comfortable?
  • How is your equipment? We take care to provide trucks that our drivers will like with upgraded interiors, refrigerators, inverters and cabinets.
  • What is your fleet manager like? Your fleet manager is your personal connection to the company when you’re on the road. We want to be sure that you have a good working relationship with your fleet manager, and that we always deliver what you expect and communicate with you so you know exactly what is going on.
  • How is your home time? Do you get home on time? Do you get home often enough?
  • Do you get enough miles? When you’re in the truck, do you keep moving? Do you get the types of runs that you like?
