    Prefer to drive out of Texas. Clean license and clean background.

    2 years solid reefer experience. Hometime not important. Prefer 70 mph trucks.

    Been in all 48. And I like to run at night. No 1099s. W2 only. I'm a company driver not o/o.

    Wherever you end up, there will probably be another job opening at that company in 6 months,,,:eek:, what'd he say? I'm not sure why anyone would volunteer for a reefer today, it has one of the highest turnovers in trucking. Think I'm full of it? I don't share the optimism of Chinatown, and in 2019, after 3 months, only 64% of new drivers stayed on the job. A big part of that is reefer. Wonder why there's no popsicles on the shelf? While reefer typically pays a bit more, the hassles are well known from "seasoned" drivers, and most would never do it again. For my area, nothing moves except a flatbed, or a tanker. That's where the good jobs are.

    I always had a liking for driving reefer. Maybe something in my blood.

    I was talking with a driver from DOT (the trucking company, not Mr. DOT law enforcement) yesterday. He was really happy working for them. He's out of New Orleans and is home every weekend and says he's treated well. Sounded like not a bad deal. Might be something for you to look into.

    I trained dry van, but started doing reefer as soon as I went solo. While I admit, reefer isn't for everyone, there are definitely those that it fits. I just happen to be one of those. Everytime I explore the possibility of doing so,etching besides reefer, I always end up realizing I don't want to do something else. It suits me and I like it. Guess I'm just weird (It's a rhetorical statement!).
