    Hey all,
    Was trying to find some info. I thinking of going into the tanker world mostly for local, finally got my TSA back ground check appointment next week to kick that off. I have a neighbor that runs for Eagle and he loves it but recently got an email from Pope. Both on paper seem about even. My question is has anyone worked for both that can compare or at the very least Pope?

    Of course I want to hear the downsides but also want to hear the upsides. I know Forum folks get so wrapped up in down siding everything I am looking for balanced perspective.

    Thanks for any info that can be thrown my way.

    More of a feeler email for recruitment via LinkedIn. I didn't apply for anything. Just got on the list. Checked out the site. Both companies are Local based and 10 mins away from home. Both companies I knew of from seeing them on the road. Only reason I know about Eagle Transport was due to my neighbor. Haven't come across anyone from Pope to ask questions.

    Looked just now. They only have a part time position in my area. Doesn't state what the haul is. May revisit if the other 2 turn into crap shows , but Im consumer debt free
