    Yes it would be to move the furniture around but they also have reefer trl's so they can haul anything. They are also dropping the rental trks they have and buying new trks with APU's installed. They are also working on some dedicated runs right now. Only 150 trks I think don't hold me to it. But I will be posting more when I find out more. I have the dot physical and drug test on Monday with orientation on Tuesday. 1 day orientation also. Min 1 yr exp. 22 years old good driving record. More to post when I have more info to share.

    Well physical and drug test is done. Will still have to wait on the drug test to come back but I am not worried about that. Hotel is nice as well. Right beside the airport so there is places around to go eat if needed. Only one other guy here for this orientation going on so far this week. So all in all will be in the hotel for 2 nights. They also put you in a room to yourself so no sharing there.

    The trucks they have are nice. New freightliners, long nose with not sure but I think detroit engines. All come with APU's, fridge and CB built in. They even put a custom dress kit on the trucks. They do use the qualcomm for eloggs and dispatch.

    Other then that there is not much more to post about them. Should have more tomorrow to share. I hope this is helping those that are looking and can get hired on. Did find out today that they do not hire from Florida so for those that live there I am sorry but this doesnt help you out.
