    This is just an observation. I am sitting in the parking lot waiting to talk to someone because they are hiring drivers and I live right down the road. Holy pos trucks! I'm looking at a Volvo with a headlight out, a what appears to be a brand new cascadia with half the bumper missing, a international eagle with a red cab and sleeper that has faded to a nice Pepto bismo color with a equally as chalky looking white hood, a w900 that looks like it hit a deer and I'm pretty sure he's gonna be stuck in the mud where he is at. WTF people lol. I can't wait to see the company trucks lol.

    You know I noticed something good. Everyone is parked straight in a spot except the w900 that thought parking in the grass would be a good idea after it has been raining everyday for two weeks. So the parking here is at least getting done right. I have heard this place is literally the worst place on Earth to deliver if you don't work for them.

    Are that their salvage yard you're looking at? Maybe they put all their money into their employees, but I doubt it. If that's their fleet you're looking at, I suggest run Forest, run!

    That was the outside carriers. When I was on my way out I was lucky enough to to see Billy big rigger the big hood bad ### going 3 1/2 mph with straight piped annnnddddd the Jake on lol. He also had about 4,635 LED lights all over the truck. The trucks they use are cascadia day cabs. The one I tested in was a 2012 with a 10 speed, not the greatest truck ever but definitely not the worst. The trailers looked like junk for the most part so now I know to stay away from any truck with Wynn Dixie on the side of it.

    It was not too appealing. The pay wasn't bad, the trucks weren't bad, but the people...holy ####. It definitely is a second chance kind of place.... The main hiring lady I had to talk to was an ####### lol. They are going down the line asking everyone's last driving job experience. Two months, three months, etc. They get to me....17 years lol. Then the lady decides to tell me about how superior the grocery industry is compared to UPS because she worked there for a year twenty years ago when she was in college. I laughed and said I'm 38 and was able to retire and move back to Florida how long have you worked here? I don't think she liked that, I was the only one who could back.....not patting myself on the back or anything but those other guys were real bad. I decided to see myself out before the process was over...no thanks.

    The facilities in Newburgh, NY and Brattleboro, VT were all-day deals. Nothing like a 9-12 hour unload at a ####ty grocery warehouse

    Brattleboro just sucks period. Slow unload time, tight docks. Only good thing is they let you park there overnight. At least they used to anyway.
