    Yes, we are on a temporary overload of work at Kiswani, but my original comment was more in reference to the rails in general.....There's work, but not real busy at the rails......

    Its my first o/o job. It's better than being otr lol

    Its so slow that they are on a hiring freeze and some have quit, maybe the grass is greener somewere else, But this place is good to me for the most part, so hopefully work will pick up on its own or enough will quit and I'll get busy that way lol ...

    A hiring freeze?? Wow! I've seen lots of posts on Craigslist from companies looking for intermodal drivers and o/o's. I'm looking to sign up with triumph transport soon as an o/o.
