    The happenings with Kraft remind me of when we bought all those trailers for hauling paper. They were 50 footers specially made just for the account.

    They took delivery of a LOT of those trailers before they realized that they didn't have drivers for the new account.

    Funny thing is the way they recruited for it. They had signs on the backs of our regular trailers saying, "Get on our waiting list for the new fleet. Call 1-800... and it's the same number as we still use West Valley City.

    "Get on our waiting list." That was classic! Like this new account was so special that you had to get on a waiting list to drive it. And this while you could see all the trailers lined up in the terminal because we didn't have enough drivers.

    How much are they paying? I might need to go back out. This local job is more of a mobile warehouse job than a driving job. 65 hour week 20-25 hours driving the rest stocking shelves and taking inventory in 5 different cities.

    That's marketing for you. Drum up interest, make it look like you're selective, and you will get what you're looking for. Maybe not as fast as you'd like, but interest makes things happen.
