    don't work for them have a big sign on bonus said paid after 30 days no it's really 40 days as they
    hold back 2 weeks pay then have you peddle in a 53ft box to places you should not go terminal manager
    nasty hand held are junk and the tractors are garbage need tires ,wipers they have nothing at Middletown NY terminal no washer fluid when asking for told Central don't pay for that worse 1.5 months I've worked
    and they don't give a #### about frieght ram it in trailer it will fit is there motto and don't be longer then 15 minutes at a stop or all hell breaks loose

    Central Transport? If so, isn't that par for the course for them no matter the terminal?

    How do WE get those boxes in places were told by common sense not to try and fit.

    It's like hanging out a gorgeous size -2 swimsuit in front of teenagers. All of them going to try and get themselves fit into it just like we fit trailers into the dock. (I know nothing about female sizing, and that of my ex)

    Don't worry. Someone will get it to fit. And it wont be that big of a deal after all.

    This must be Central Transport. They have an ad on the local CL about 4 times a month, if that says anything.

    Had a Central Transport guy try to take a 53' trailer onto a local county road around here a couple weeks back. Went over some railroad tracks then decided he really couldn't fit. Tried to back up over said tracks. got hung up then got hit by train. Trailer was shorter now. I guess he made it fit.

    This is the Swift outfit, right? I rarely see them anymore. I thought they got swallowed up by Swift.

    I see them occasionally but it's not very often. I don't know who bought who with them because it'll be a yellow truck pulling a yellow trailer, or a pjax trailer, or a vitran trailer, or a frames trailer, etc lol
     
    Frank Speak Thanks this.

    Swift owns the Central out of Waco, Tx. The White Trucks. The Central I think the op was talking about is the one with the yellow trucks.
