    I talked to their recruiter at the stephens city va terminal about a year ago. Here are a few key points i remember. The trucks are equipped with "smart idle" which means you set the temp in the bunk and the truck starts itself up and shuts itself down to maintain the temp. They do not run the south the furthest south they go is Tennessee. They run illinois and indiana and a lot of northeast. All the trucks are parked at the terminal every weekend. They told me home every weekend and "their drivers do not take their resets in their trucks" They haul a lot of dairy products. All this info was told to me by a recruiter from the va terminal so some of it may be different if you are out of the tn terminal. Good luck I hope this helps

    They opened up a new terminal in Apopka FL. They hire mainly Central FL for this terminal.

    I worked for Purdy Bros for 1 year they were really good to me. The Winchester VA yard is the best they do alot of milk runs, 95% is 300 miles or less they have the regional runs down really good they like to have U home every 5-7 days,They do some NY city but they wont force u to do it. Any other questions I will be happy to help.
