    Morrow, GA. I got a buddy up in Mobile, AL and that place is a mess too.

    I'd might entertain working at Pasadena or Cincy. Those terminals seem to actually care for their drivers. Not just pay lip service. But there is a huge disconnect between drivers and the terminals/corporate at Superior as a whole.

    You go into Markham and they look at you like you're some scum interrupting their work day when you're the one paying their ####ing salary.

    Good luck either way.

    Dang man. That’s crazy. I just want the training and my one year. Then I’m going to get a local tanker gig.

    If that's all you need, go for it. Just dont think it's some special company that you're gonna retire with. Might as well be Schneider or any other mega. And Schneider probably gets your paycheck right....

    The pay is nice for a newbie but I feel like I could make that as local and I get to sleep beside the lady every night.

    They paid pretty well. I was in track to make $65K but I did stay out a good bit. By choice. But I heard they restructured their pay as of recent. Upping their CPM but lowering their layover. Not 100% sure on that.

    One positive thing I will say about them, they will get you home when you need to. Hell or high water. Unless your truck is broke, which is a good possibility that it is... LOL

    The CPM seems pretty nice now. Hometime is what’s most important to me though. This is pretty much the only company I could find near me that would get me home every 7-10 days and pay me well.

    That's got to be terminal specific. Only twice in 11 years have I had to have them look at my check. Once it was actually in my favor. I turned in a receipt for a company hotel and they reimbursed me for something they already paid for..
