    Another one . Joins the forum and runs right here to make his first post saying how great PTL is and how everybody else is wrong .
    Like we really believe that . I've seen PTL's trucks and drivers . Pretty pathetic . Shippers that use them always talk about the trouble their drivers have backing to the dock .
    Driver SEA 80 . Inspection Selection Score 98
    Great carrier there .

    We all know, if your a GOOD driver, any company would snatch you up, at any time......gues you didn't know that with all your experience!!!

    I never said PTL is for everybody, but 15 years with them...and I haven't lost anything not even my house, how many of you can say you've even been trucking that long much less that many years with one company....grow up!!!!

    Grow up ?:biggrin_2559: . The only reason anybody would stay at a company like PTL for 15 years is because no better company will hire them . Sure drivers change jobs every few years when something better comes along - unless they are a screwup better companies don't want .

    And if you're not a good driver you're doomed to stay at PTL for years and years . Be willing to run illegally with junk equipment and they'll be VERY GOOD to you .

    They do not hire drivers without 3 years exp. anymore, no more pets and no more high pay,teams split 15 cpm..top pay .33 cpm and thats only on the east side of the Mississippi River 30 cpm on the west side of it..It Sucks,I see htese posts are older..But they still have two classes of orientation a week with 28 to 38 driers in each one..And they are all seasoned drivers with exp...PTL is not a good co. to work for.Time period for full health insurance is now 1 year...:biggrin_25510:

    now im not one to give adsvise that is unwanted but i am quick to tell you like it is when it comes to a company that sucks and ptl is one . as far as there driving test no big deal but that is where the good stops. if you go to work there ill give you a month before you quit and the only reason it will take that long is because you can get back to the teminal.

    i wish you a lot of luck your going to need it .----southernpride :biggrin_25514:
