    I was wondering. I was told they were at about 2200-2500 and home after 7-10 days.

    Sound right to you?

    Thanx

    When I was with them before the buyout it was 25-28 avg 3000 if you could handle it and home most weekends. Covenant is slowly sinking star.

    My only problem is that I have a Reckless Driving ticket from 2005 on my MVR and it is slim pickens right now. Am thinking about just waiting until May when it will be 3 years old. Others that I have looked at are USA Truck and obviosly Swift or Werner do not have a problem with it, but after all the negetives I see here I will save that for a last resort.

    have you considered knight refrigerated, i am running for them now and the miles are there. just some times you have to deal with another terminal dispatcher and he may give ya something not worth it. you stay out for 14 or so days then get 3 at the house. plus paid daily if you get the bills scanned before 10 phoenix time.

    talked to Knight, the ticket has to be 5 years old before they will consider and they will not take less than 4 months experience. There is a Knight terminal here in the Richmond area and had gone there about a week ago.
