    Anyone know much about the birmingham terminal. Ive been before but wasnt sure how their freight was for extraboard. I know ive had a sweet sweet dallas load out of there for 650 miles but thats all i remember.

    I could jump to another contractor but I have no desire working for ground no more despite how good the home time is. I’ve been looking at Estes for a while I just wanted to wait until June or July as I was waiting on getting my house set up and stuff. Luckily I’m done and ready to make a move. I have not been let go. And I have savings luckily so the switch is happening.
    How is the Richmond terminal.

    i was at Richmond last week. It’s the first terminal, it’s a crap hole honestly but if you’re extraboard then no worries, you’ll see it once a week and gone. I go to Raleigh a lot from there.

    So extra board drivers start at 71.25 or do we start at .68

    71.25 then a penny raise per 6 months and that tops out at 3 years, but also a cost of living raise every year. Last year was 2.75 cpm

    Not entirely sure where people park cars there. I don’t like to stick around long. I think they have their own parking lot

    Talked to recruiter today and she mentioned I would start at .68. Does that mean I’m on scheduled run? Explain how that works
