    Not always but not uncommon at all. I cant get a full-time spot because i supposedly dont have enough experience, but they gave somebody a position with the same training as me. Not enough experience didnt matter when they wanted me to cover the tanker and had no experience at all.

    I see Rugerfn? That advice was not very educational or helpful at all since you have no experience with this company, thanks for your input.

    Squeegee the position I was typing about is hauling reefer units, I guess tankers could also be discussed here.

    Oh ok, the company i work, the reefer guys are happy, great pay, bennys and equipment. Decent hometime as well. I'm on the local side which is a different ballgame.

    They are like HP Hood milk company. Based out of Franklin Mass. They bought up a bunch of small milk companies around New England. Don't know about their employment though. Tankers and reefers.

    THey're always running...think they have a big terminal/plant up in Bellingham MA also. Haven't heard anything bad about them, but then they don't stop running long enough to get a word in edgewise. Lots of daycabs, so I suspect most go home daily.

    Yes Jpenn all home time. I guess I'll search for hp hood see what the procedures are. I'm wondering if these reefers are going to mom & pop stores or big chain super markets.
