    For the record I never had issues with anyone @ Markham or Kankakee on a personal level however, when it came to work/business it's a completely different story altogether! Which is why I left Superior after a pretty dang good 3 years with them between 2006-2009. I won't go into specifics unless requested....

    You definitely proved you are lifer in the tank racket. Amazes me how tanker companies "rig" things together instead of fixing em right the first time. Another thing - it seems shops can get welding rods by the truck load, but darned if they can get a piece of angle iron. The stuff I see looks like 20 welding rods were used instead of 2-inch piece of 3" x 3" angle iron. The sleepers on Enterprise's tractors are like twice the size of Superior's!

    Frock, you are correct about the welding rod instead of buying a piece of angle iron...have you had the priviledge of going to Channahon and dealing with Queen Jaimie and Princess April? If not you are in for a treat not soon to be beat....Good luck on that and let us knw how that works out for you.

    LOL so true! Yep, good ol' Jimmy Carl. The one who, after the engine let go in my truck which I was running out of Westvillle, let me continue running as a company driver again but out of Kankakee vice Savannah and, in one the oldest flattop Internationals still in service. The one who, when I begged to be allowed to transfer back to Savannah with that truck because Debbie (Long) didn't have and couldn't acquire an open truck for me, flat out refused because in his words, "It was too much hassle transferring trucks between terminals."

    Yeah, right Jimmy, WTF ever!

    My first week at Enterprise was uneventful. Monday loaded at Petrolia, PA. It didn't deliver until Wednesday 8am at Duluth, GA. Tankwashed to Kingsport, TN where I picked up a loaded trailer Thursday AM. Dropped it at Nitro Thursday afternoon. Picked up an empty trailer and went to Gallipolis Ferry, WV, with the hopes of maybe getting loaded earlier than my 1330 Friday appointment, lost that roll of the dice. Got out of G Ferry at 1630 Friday. Dropped loaded trailer at Coraopolis and bobtailed to Parker. Enterprise's dispatch system seems quite a bit more efficient than Superiors. My truck is a bucket of loose, rattling bolts - a 2006 International with about 900k. It was used in the North Dakota oil fields. I guess that's why it has no noticeable suspension system! Not many miles and a leisurely pace.
    Pay Summary:
    Hose Wash $15.00
    Load/Unload $16.00 for 1st 2-hours, then $16.70-hour
    Other Hourly Work: $18.75
    Loaded Pay: 45-CPM
    Empty: 32-CPM
    Layover Pay: $75-first 24 hours then, $50 per 12 hours
    A laundry list of benefits.
     
    Cyanide and wsyrob Thank this.
