    It's the wife - they did. He took it in for a squeaky belt and when he picked it up, they'd replaced the hood and bumper. Surprise! The new shop did it.

    It's the wife. Were you sitting in the mess on I-65 south in Kentucky around 6:45 on Tuesday afternoon? :) Hubby saw a company truck and thought it might be you.

    So, you still out there with us? Neither one of us seems to have much to say about the place lol. I didnt get home until sunday this weekend. It sucked but then i got back and got my pay statement for the week and felt better once again. This is one of the most annoying companies I have ever worked for but I have been dragging home some very nice money. Hows it going for you? In my last 4 weeks I have had one sub par week but the rest have been great as far as pay. They have thrown stuff out at me from the NY plant and the Haleyville plant that have really bothered me but the check stubs at the end of the week have definitely eased the pain :yes2557:

    people used to have good union jobs hauling auto's and mattresses but the bottom feeders are taking anything they can make a buck on
    a driver in a big name mattress hauler truck was on the cb asking around which companies are union cuz the ata bottom feeders were takin over his haul and he needed 5 more years in the union for his pension

    Just thought i would bump this back up in case anyone had any new questions about them. Im still hanging in there. For all of the crappier slow weeks I have had I have actually done pretty well there so far. I have been there for a few days over 7 months now. Sometimes i hate it some days It seems great. Overall i would say that I have worked for worse places. Its definitely not the best job i have had but its actually not to bad and i get at least a short weekend every week and a lot of times i get more weekend than i want. Seems to last through monday a lot but our busy money making time should be coming up with tax season.
