    Any drivers out of Ecru MS who attended the once a year driver meeting with the VP that can shed light as to what happened ? Rumor is that VP got so disgusted with the drivers questions and comments that he walked out of the meeting and didn't come back.

    talked to their recruitment department end of 2016. They said 'average driver' took home around 66K a year. Then I found a thread on here that had alot of guys posting their weekly subs. Although, it was a few years ago, it pretty much added up to the same old 'General Freight' pay. 0.39 and a half cent a mile was top. I believe this was 2016. Dunno if they raised the pay or not. But no way am I going for that.....even IF they pay for drop and hook pay.

    Greenhorns will agree to 34 hour reset for a while. Old hands usually not. One carrier in my neck of the woods has 34 hour reset which explains why they can’t fill their seats. 34 hours at home is nothing considering staff get 60 hours off

    I was there 3 years ago running ptp out of syracuse they didn't want to pay anymore for northeast which got old hitting the same traffic day in and out. Went to walmart, now they are doing the same thing Ashley did, higher lower wage drivers and driving out older guys.

    didn't know.....it was really hard to understand the 'application' at that time. They emailed it to me, print and mail back? I gave up and went elsewhere. It is what it is. Sorry to hear things aren't looking great, right now, for you guys. Here's to hoping it looks up for you!
