Im still at Heniff but thinking about making a change. Newman Carriers looks interesting and they seem to be hiring around St Louis. I'm toying with the idea of relocating because the housing market where I'm at is trash and I'd be closer to family.
For starters my terminal no longer has a terminal manager, the tank wash has been idle since February, they took away our vending machines and I could go on. Writing is on the wall and all of us drivers are looking at our options. I could transfer but after this experience I'm not interested in staying with Heniff. Also I peak at the load board periodically and the rates out of Heniff St Louis terminal aren't that great.
Late to reply on this sad to Mike moved on. I'm sure it's mostly new faces up there now since I've been there. I left a bit over a year from pedricktown mostly due to the commute on top of driving the truck and do not miss it honestly.
Gordon still running? Hope you can find something good up there.
Yup Gordon is still hanging around doing his thing. He had a health issue around new years that sidelined him a bit but hes back. We are basically a satelite terminal for Springfield now and its definetly an adjustment. I think the terminal is for sale and its really only a matter of time before we get shuttered. What blows my mind is we are actually busy, and we get good rates so its not like we are hemmoraging money.
