    GIve it a couple of months and let us know what you think of it than. You will see the true side of what they have become since being purchased by an investment company. Still a decent job, but not what it used to be since the investment company came into the picture.

    How can you get on with A&R? What are A&R driver requirements? Are there any other companies like A&R out there for a secound choice to roll with?

    what about driving for one of the lease operators out of the highlands terminal? Can it be a great deal because they say most of the Houston stuff is out n back.

    So disappointed with A&R , biggest mistake in my life working there ,the driver does it all but they don't pay very well , last week 0 in account due to them taking a advance I took to live the week before , many drivers are leaving its too bad the job is cool very serious work , but McDonald's would pay me more
     
    Buzzard2157 Thanks this.

    Thanks very much for your reply -- probably just in time, methinks.


    Brian sent an application in to them about a week ago, but Jason has not yet called him back. What you said tells me that A&R is not the place for him!


    Thanks for the warning/heads-up -- you may have saved us from a big can of worms!!!
