    Problem is, you don't get the miles. I would say don't look at pay and find a job you'll be happy at. Otherwise you become an endless job hopper.
    For me when I stopped focusing on money the money finally started flowing. Perhaps I was more productive.

    whats your experience in NC? With Shaffer? Looks like there is plenty of refrigerated freight with the meat plants in the area.

    Good luck. Read the threads. If you follow someone usually within a year or two they're not working there. If you're looking for something short term ok but just know you won't be happy there.

    Nope, I've been gone for over 2 years.
    I left Shaffer on good terms.

    I never had any problem getting miles.
    I made money there week after week.

    Only thing that sucked was the 62mph Crapcadias and seeing a lot of the Northeast.

    I ran OTR 3 weeks out 4 days off.
     
    Bro_Dave and pasmurf Thank this.
