    I'm hired on with Acme Truck Line. I finished the 2 day orientation yesterday. They bought us lunch at a great little cafe just down the road. Orientation was pretty basic, the usual videos, discussions, and tests. I think I'll like it here. Its a 100% O/O or small fleet lease company. The truck owner told me I'll be an O/O without the expenses. I run the truck like it's mine. As long as the truck covers the loads that it's dispatched on I won't hear from him. Acme will dispatch my loads going out and the owner, who is an agent for Landstar will cover my backhauls. The company offers some great investment oppurtunities. Anyone that is interested in this company should definately take a look. I'm just getting started here but I know several people with trucks leased to them that are very happy. I'm planning on driving for this owner awhile and learning the ropes then trying my hand at buying a truck and leasing it on with them.

    I am leased on with them. I've been with them about 5 months now. I run mostly Pa, Oh and Wv which is my choice. Be patient with them there are good weeks a few bad weeks but as many outstanding weeks. I had a week last month that was better than my best week ever at the last company running 2 trucks there to my 1 here!

    Thanks. I worked for Lake City Trucking with a guy from Cecilia. He took over his dads truck and I think he's leased to United.

    Thanks. Yeah I'm just gonna be patient. The dispatcher asked me how I like to run and I told him the farther the better. He acted like he was glad to hear that. He said he doesn't have but a couple of guys that like to run long. Ups and downs can be expected. Thats truckin. As long as the bills get paid I'm happy.
