    Hello. Do any former or preferably current drivers know anything about this company. I know they have a terminal not too far from me. Seem to have pretty nice equipment and such. Have seen a few ads for drivers, and looked at their website. Any more info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Well, I consider no news to be good news. LOL.I have been in touch with them, and what I have been told so far sounds promising. I am faxing an application monday, and we will see where it goes from there.

    Well, I am back at it. Went to orientation on Dec 6th. Was impressed to be picked up at the hotel that morning by Mr. Dave Britton. He is the founder and CEO of the company. Orientation went well, with the standard stuff....videos to watch, drug screen and physical, etc. I had no surprises. It seems everything the recruiter told me was true. By wed afternoon, I was in my brand new Volvo, headed south to home, to get the rest of the stuff I needed. My first load was to Mt. Airy, NC. I am setting about 10 miles from there to deliver tomarrow. All in all, I am pretty impressed with the company so far. I am concerned about the eLogs. But will give it a more than fair shake. May grow to like them. Anything new can be worrysome at first.

    Things have been going good. Have been making good miles and money, with Christmas week not so good. Only made 500 that week. The first Britton driver I met, when I mentioned being new, said "you will enjoy working here". Was nice to see something besides the negativity that is so common these days.

    Running areas vary depending on if you are in vans, hoppers, or flatbed. I am in flatbed. So far all my runs have been east or south east of southeastern South Dakota. Have went to wisc a couple times, connecticut, north Carolina, and am headed to Birmingham right now. Everything has been out and right back. So my hometime has been great as well. Vans have a bit more Canada loads, due to being affiliated with Bison Transport. I don't know about where the hopper guys go.
