    Told you it just takes a while and sometimes something gets held up. I hope you enjoy your stay. What terminal will you be at again?

    I've been thinking about switching to the city for a while now, I'm sick of working nights, and my wife is really sick of me working nights. I just don't want to take the pay cut and I don't want to work that hard. I've been here about two and a half years, so almost at max pay, now Dayton freight is hiring at max pay, they have overtime after forty. If you were considering working the city, anybody think it makes sense to go to Dayton freight to make a bit more money?

    100% go to Dayton if they are in your area. They are a great company and if you’re looking for P&D, you’ll make more there since they are hiring at top pay right now. I believe Estes doesn’t pay OT until 52 or 55 hours worked.

    If you do decide to jump over, expect to work more than 50hrs a week. They have good benefits, I think I paid like 30 bucks a week for health insurance when I was there. Profit sharing as well.
     
    Bob Dobalina and dwells40 Thank this.

    046. It's a decent size. Lots of Amazon trailers in the yard with a new Amazon warehouse next door.

    I'd even vote Dayton based on @Bob Dobalina telling me about them years ago.

    Been at Estes just over a month. I have a question. The health insurance spouse affidavit says you can only include your spouse only if she has no access to health insurance from her job. Well she can get insurance from her company but it is very expensive so I was trying to get her on mine. Can any of you guys shed some better light on this or do I need to call benefits and find out?
