    Tnspeedy I pretty much warned you they weren't all that great a few weeks ago. I will be leaving in a few weeks once my 6 month sentence is over. Just not enough miles. Delivered in Mississauga,On today and not picking up next one til Monday which will give me only1800 for 7 days when I deliver it Tuesday in Cincinnati.

    It tends to take hauling more than 2 loads to get used to the reefer. Some people never get used to it. Then there are others such as myself that sleep better with the reefer on than shut off.

    lol....i have heard of many people like that....i guess if you start out on a reefer it would be different....maybe i don know i just didnt like the feelin i had from the start....i like bein able to check my load ever once and a while to make sure it is still secure while movein down the road i found that hard once that seal is put on at a shipper i don know it might just have been me......

    they way overboard on security they threw a fit when i was comein home and told me i said somethin when i didnt.....in regaurds to safety of the truck while at home....they want you to spend as much time sendin messages on the qc as you do drivein.....they watch your logs closer than dot. but its beacuse back a couple of years ago there safestat score was a 99. i am from the southeast and me and another guy in my orrentation come to the conclusion that everbody we were havein to deal with besides in ga was extremly rude and hateful. there is alot of people say on here that they are miro managed but i dont know......all i knew was i could tell that they werent goin to work out for me
     
    Rolling18 and DieselDucy Thank this.
