    Oh don't think I haven't seen that ad a dozen times, I've actually talked to Cypress about it and it sounds like a pretty decent deal it's synthetic gyp coming out of Red Level (I think Fly Ash) power plant going over around Palatka/Interlachen area and supposedly it pays pretty well. Just keeping my eye on June/July and hopefully I'll have all this shiznat figured out and get things back on track.

    Not bad if they allow someone with three months experience to do it.

    On the dump side I think they want a years worth of experience, and BTW that's good money for dump freight. So much for people calling the recruiter a liar because those are the exact rates he discussed with me.

    I saw one of their Petes at scale here in Florida just south of Ocala getting a full on inspection. Driver later said truck passed, but he didn't. He got into a hurry and left his DL at home. So if they can pass inspections, trucks can't be that bad.... They do keep up on the work of them since CSA. I think everyone has really. I have seen a few new trucks this last week, but not sure if o/o or not.

    Rates for dump is what recruiter told me as well.

    i no longer work for them only because of personal reasons i needed to find local work. but if i was to go on the road i would go back like i have said it aint the best but by far not the worst either. the benefits are decent but cost an arm and a leg

    No I don't do any of that up here, I was just commenting about what Cypress is hauling down in Florida. I have hauled it in the past in tanks down in Florida but never in PA.
