    Starting School on 9/21, and have been looking at possible companies where I might like to apply. Have heard good things about Crete/Shaffer but was wondering if anyone has info as to whether if Northern CA is a major lane for them?? If so do they have terminals or drop yards located in the central valley(Stockton, Modesto). I ask because I was on 99 north near Stockton, and saw a large dirt lot off to the side that had some Crete trailers in it. Thanks.

    That's a drop lot, heck if you got a place to park a truck and trailer near your home.... You could park there. image.jpg
    They're annoying as hell and only hire from certain schools.
    But if you get to the Ripon area, near the Loves truckstop, drink a shot of good tequila for me. It's the Claze Azul stuff at Esmeralda's.
    You can even pretend that I bought it...

    It was a year ago. I never noticed the name before.
    I was there a long time too. I can only remember the 90 year old fully male bartender from the time before, I'd order a Dos Esuies and he'd give me a Modelo.
    I'm sick of the transgendered freaks, keep it hidden.
    I read a great story today about a judge in Chattanooga that wouldn't give a straight couple a divorce.
     
    Wild Murphy Thanks this.

    I asked the same question here once too. I called recruiter about 8 months ago and was told crete hires from california. But shaffer only hires from southern california. They have a drop yard in stockon supposedly

    Nice company to work for if you enjoy hand unloading customers freight while they sit there watch you.
