    We don't FORCE anybody to do anything pertaining to their job as a truck driver. It's just very helpful when they do stay at their pump at know all the information, such as

    Truck Number
    Pump Number
    Gallons Fueled (Or Dollar Amount)
    Et cetera.

    I don't know the brand, but it's these tiny blue packets. We run them once, and then rinse once.

    Pilot is VERY uptight about it's coffee. We're supposed to know the acidity and such like that. That's why the quality is much better, I guess. I don't drink it because I can't stand coffee at all (not even starbucks)

    The pay is much better than minimum wage, which is what most people pay. And every time we suggestive sell you something (i.e. 2-packs cigarettes, 2 theater pack candies, etc.) they give us a $5 pilot card for gas and snacks. We have a possible chance to make $30/week if we do really well every week.

    A former company I drove for wanted us to fuel at Pilot because they gave a discount based on volume, I doubt it amounted to that much for 30 odd trucks (emphasis on odd) but I tried to do as instructed.

    My current company has negotiated deals with mostly TAs, but a few others here and there, paying a set amount over pipeline price for the best and going through two more tiers, we are supposed to fuel on the route though and not drive too far to get fuel.

    I think Pilot has good coffee, when I want to sleep half an hour down the road, I get some. I wondered about how they clean the coffee makers. It sounds like a good system. I really hate when the coffee tastes like boiler cleaner or Milk of Magnesia.

    Starbucks is for people that love (strong) coffee, I don't care for that either, I call it jitter juice. I don't want to have tremors driving down the road.

    Most Pilots are clean, that is my best compliment.

    My question is,

    Do the lot lizards kick back a percentage of their profits to the manager for not calling the police on them?
