    I was terminated by Prime Inc. on 7/10/2008 for refusing to operate a truck that literally had the front end bending and snapping under the truck. They fired me and I was wondering which companies hire a driver that has been terminated by another company.

    That is a broad description.

    Actually, I would like to know how Arnold works out.

    After I saw where you went on the last post, I looked at their site and it looked good for my area as well in Illinois. I am just looking right now.
