    Another one . Joins the forum and runs right here to make his first post saying how great PTL is and how everybody else is wrong .
    Like we really believe that . I've seen PTL's trucks and drivers . Pretty pathetic . Shippers that use them always talk about the trouble their drivers have backing to the dock .

    The main reason I quit was due to the fact that they were running us as a team truck and I was fresh out of school with no experience. They had my husband training me. He and I got along fine but I was scared to death when he would lay down and try to sleep. Never go to a company who wants to train you that way. BAD BAD Idea!!!

    My hubby is still with the company but the only reason he is still here is because of the bad economy and not many companies are hiring right now.

    Like I said if you like to eat and pay bills please go to another company.

    Just my opinion. Thanks for listening and Happy Driving!!!

    We all know, if your a GOOD driver, any company would snatch you up, at any time......gues you didn't know that with all your experience!!!

    I never said PTL is for everybody, but 15 years with them...and I haven't lost anything not even my house, how many of you can say you've even been trucking that long much less that many years with one company....grow up!!!!

    Grow up ? . The only reason anybody would stay at a company like PTL for 15 years is because no better company will hire them . Sure drivers change jobs every few years when something better comes along - unless they are a screwup better companies don't want .

    And if you're not a good driver you're doomed to stay at PTL for years and years . Be willing to run illegally with junk equipment and they'll be VERY GOOD to you .

    The new PTL

    They do not hire drivers without 3 years exp. anymore, no more pets and no more high pay,teams split 15 cpm..top pay .33 cpm and thats only on the east side of the Mississippi River 30 cpm on the west side of it..It Sucks,I see htese posts are older..But they still have two classes of orientation a week with 28 to 38 driers in each one..And they are all seasoned drivers with exp...PTL is not a good co. to work for.Time period for full health insurance is now 1 year...

    Ptl murery ky

    now im not one to give adsvise that is unwanted but i am quick to tell you like it is when it comes to a company that sucks and ptl is one . as far as there driving test no big deal but that is where the good stops. if you go to work there ill give you a month before you quit and the only reason it will take that long is because you can get back to the teminal.

    i wish you a lot of luck your going to need it .----southernpride
