    Pensacola FL both have terminal with 30 minutes from me. The groendyke terminal only chemical. Trimac hasn't said what product they run.

    I would probably go with groendyke. That Florida terminal is probably the old McKenzie terminal. If so McKenzie was based out of Florida so they should have plenty work for you

    Correct its their old terminal. Groendyke recruiter said after orientation & all training. The Pensacola terminal runs chemical 2 days out. She said they do run to south Fl. & Texas. I haven't heard anything on trimac Pensacola terminal. There isn't much social media on trimac.

    I worked for them for 6 months. They could be a good company but too many problems. Central dispatch, constantly messing your paycheck up and not by 10-20 bucks either. Get paid every two weeks. So when they messed up my check I had to constantly wait another two weeks to get said money owed. Health insurance is high and sucks. I wrote something up on them in here. I would have to go back and find it.

    Only positive is they keep their equipment up but it is full of all the annoying and distracting "safety features". I wouldn't ever go back.

    I started with Trimac right out of school. I'm happy and have absolutely no plans on going anywhere.
