    What's the average annual gross for a end dump driver at Oakley?

    Just an FYI for any of you Oakley drivers. If you get offered a load that picks up at Strong Seal Systems in Pine Bluff, AR, RUN, RUN, RUN away! I unload there pretty regular (portland and flyash) and see these poor Oakley drivers come in to pick up and they sit there for hours. The driver has to back under a discharge pipe and the loader runs back and forth from whatever you guys pick up to the reservoir with a front end loader (kind of like they would do at a ready mix place). It takes FOREVER. I've literally delivered there in the morning and come back that afternoon with another load and see the same poor driver still getting loaded. I feel so sorry for them and can't help but think to myself "I bet they never take this load again".

    There's no set rate, it varies by customer.

    @mitchtazz do you park just south of 60 on 27? I think I remember you from years ago on the forum when I was more active.

    Yep, I started with an end dump and did that for three or four years, then switched to tank for a year, quit and did flatbed over at Landstar for a year and a half and then came back to tank. Been back at it for a year now
     
    Trashtrucker1707 and 59EX Thank this.

    They keeping you guys busy on tank side? I’ve been thinking about strapping my blower back on but do decent enough doing hopper. But I stay out 2-3 weeks to do so. Might as well drag a tank at that point I figure.
