    I can't speak about the entire company, but can share my experiences with regards to the Tampa and Mulberry terminals and it has not been a positive experience. As an example: When I was hired, the annual pay advertised was $ 50k-70k. Dillon has since removed this from their advertisement/recruiting information due to so many drivers getting angry because of the income expectation, when in realty for the majority the income was in the mid 30k to the low 40k range. There are a number of areas that I site, but I don't want to just trash Dillon. I want to help anyone interested in working for Dillon in my area to go in with realistic expectations. If you have specifics questions about Dillon, I will answer them according to my experiences in these two terminals.

    Dillon is advertising for EIGHT drivers in my area on CL today. I went over to their yard a couple of years ago, and talked to the manager and a couple of drivers. I am thankful I didn't even apply. When a company is advertising for 8 drivers at once, they will hire anyone who can fog a mirror. Tons of red flags.

    If you have some experience, I would be patient and look at other local companies. If you are new to driving, it may be worth the frustration of hanging in with Dillon until you have enough experience to find a better company. That is what most of the drivers do and that's why they are always looking for drivers.

    I've been with them 2 and a half years.
    I've cleared 64k first year and 80k second year.
    But then again I work for a living.
    Sounds like you lazy ####s wanna get paid to sit on your couch.
    If you don't wanna pull loads get out of the way I'll take your slack

    You resurrected a two-year-old thread just to run your mouth? Typical steering wheel holder.
