    Do they require recent experience? I ran OTR in 2013 but got off the road. Got depression and home sick. Ran 6 months clean and been doing CDL yard work ever since. For six months , last year, I worked for transforce that was requiring us to leave the yard to pick up trailers ten minutes away so I dunno if that'll count for #### lol. Not the safest thing to do in a yard truck but Steelcase didn't give a crap.

    You shouldn't have a problem getting in. You might have to run (on the account) with a trainer though.

    That's what I have heard for years. If your local they run the sh** out of you 14 to 16 hrs a day, go home sleep,sh**,shower and shave for your 10 and right back at it. If they paid OTafter 40 hrs wouldn't be a bad gig.

    I'm guessing this means they run 24/7 unlike the intermodal companies(i.e. BEST Transport). I'm curious how much their regional guys bring in.

    It was a good company equipped with those beautiful blue KWs when that old man was still alive. But his son had to be stupid enough to sell off the company to A&S and have idiots behind the wheel who only drive with autos. My 04 T600 is an ex-Kinards truck. Well speced truck.

    Yup. Supposedly they're getting a yard in Mount Pocono. Supposedly. But, if they do, I'm thinking of signing up if i don't already get a new job. Heard a few drivers were going to jump ship if they left Scranton/Throop, but looks like BEST wants to be closer to the companies it has accounts with in PA. Everything is up in the air.
