    You're with Link, right? Which was bought by Arnold, which is a division of US Express.

    Hmmm....

    I guess the word "NEW" really meant "New to YOU".

    :biggrin_25511:

    I can deal with it. 10 speed, 175k and change on it when I got it. Newest truck I've ever driven. Smooth as butter. Holy GEEZ, why are there so many freakin macros?? Macro for this, macro for that, macro for taking a break, including WHY you are taking a break (I shall never use that one).

    I'm hanging in there though. We'll see if the miles pick up. They said it would, even though we are mostly running Beech freight. The one I'm on now is Celadon. Delivers tomorrow then pickup another going to MA that I'm dropping in the Knoxville yard (anothe Celadon load).

    That macro is for high risk and tobacco loads only.
    If you're not on a high risk or tobacco load, you don't need to send that one.
    If you are on a high risk or tobacco load, you will be required to send that one or your QC will light up with messages and your phone will start ringing.

    Interesting. No paycheck. No expense reimbursement for tolls and load straps before celadon boight us out. Im on a load to mt holly nc and sitting in kentucky waiting for answers. Former fsi dispatcher is not answering question about whether or not he turned in my receipts. I can always get them from usx because i scanned them too. I am due to turn in truck in Little Rock on Thursday. Might be sooner if someone doesnt get this straight.

    Im at Celadon now and i left the LP and went to recovery. Due to the fact no money was being made as a lp. I am in recovery now and i make oretty good over here. I average about 8-900 bring home a week. I dont know if your husband is interested if is tell him to find recovery at the indy term and talk to Jennifer. I will never drive as an otd for celadon hell to the no too much waiting involed with them. They have been buying big companies left and right so the frieght has slowed due to our massive over take of other companies. We just bought a Canadian company 175 trucks lol and another american company. They cant keep everyone busy. Tell him in recovery we fly and ride on buses or vans to pick up trucks and bring them bk to indy and can stay out as long as u want and stay home as much u like for and how long u like. We are in hotels ever night here. So just to let you know he might like it over here in this unit.

    I worked for Celadon for 2 years and 10 months. They where a good company to work for at first. My beef with them is they did not want to get me home in California. When they would do lunch or dinner for the divers you could not get anything until the people in the office got there's. So it was really for the office not the divers they would try to make you feel like it was for you but it was not so I did not go to any after that. As for the logs they would always say that your logs where wrong. I tried to wright my numbers as clear as I could and still just could not make logs happy there.

    Weird, I did a recovery in El Paso and I was sleeping in that truck from when I picked it up until I dropped it off in Indy. I did 2 trips in that Volvo, one from El Paso to Kansas and then one from Kansas to Indy. Those Volvos have a really nice stock stereo in them with some good bass. Puts the Prostar stock radios to shame.

    And if I remember correctly, recovery is one step away from being let go. Usually people who do recovery, according to my friend who until recently worked for Celedon, are put on the recovery team shortly before they're let go.
