    Thanks for the info on foodliner. I was told that based on my location in Wisconsin that my hometime would be every 2 to 3 days maybe more depending on my load and having every other weekend off. I would also have to be available for dispatch the other weekend but if not called I would have that weekend off also. My pay is .36 cpm. Also, drivers in my area gross 900-1100 per week and aggressive drivers would make more. I was told their is not much down time.

    You learn anything more about them? I spoke to a recruiter today and got much the same from him. Not much info on their web site?

    Anyone know anything about these folks? Come to think of it there isn't much on any bulk outfits on these boards.

    Been with Foodliner's chemical division (Questliner) for almost a year now and couldn't be happier. Will make in the mid 70's and hometime has been great. My weekend to work is usually optional and the extra pay to work it makes it very worthwhile.
