    I can tell you what they pay, at least here in AZ. I was offered a job from them about two years ago. They offered $15.00 per hour for city p&d and I can't remember exactly but a Tucson to El Paso run, out and back, was around $200.00 per night. Needless to say I didn't accept the job offer. I was actually a little offended by what they pay. From my understanding they are not a fan of the union and I'm not sure if all of Vitran is union but I know some parts are or at least used to be. If you are union I'm sure they will do everything to try and break the union. Oh yeah.......their equipment sucks too! Good luck.

    Ya... Its not pretty. I have been working for them a little over a month. It seems I may have come in at a bad time but I am happy to get two hundred a night, work right up to my 14 hour clock most nights and Friday into Saturday work 14-18 hours. I really hate to say it, don't know if they will treat you guys coming from Vitran any different but my opinion is you should do what I'm doing. Look else where before the merge is too far along, at which point everyone is going to be leaving and there will be no jobs left. Don't know if it matters much but I'm in MI. Good luck.
