I am going through the hiring process with Eagle Transport out of the Knoxville, TN terminal. I was wondering if there was anyone here that works for eagle out of the Knoxville terminal that could give me some info on what to expect when I start…I’ve been driving for about 9 yrs and have experience hauling with just about every different kind of trailer except hazmat/tanker. I just recently got my hazmat/tanker endorsement so this will be new to me. One of my career goals was to haul fuel and I’m finally almost there! Just trying to get some info on what I should expect with this company and any tips/advice I can get to possibly prepare me better. Any info or advice would be much appreciated! Thanks y’all!

Here’s the gist of hauling for eagle.
Equipment is solid, Knoxville mechanics are solid, dispatch is solid, and they have a great crew of drivers.
Show yourself as a solid driver and team player, and you’ll move up to pump driver once you’re solid on delivery.
Eagle also has dry bulk and chemical if you want to run more, and conversely, pull larger paychecks.
Don’t whine about your schedule.
Do ask to move to what you want in time.
Don’t pull a handle until you’re absolutely sure you’re connected correctly and validated it twice. That’ll save your biscuits.
The Knoxville guys are good, and while i have limited interaction with them, they generally are on top of their game across the board.
Pm me with any other questions if you like.
..I’m new to this site so I’m not exactly sure how to pm someone on here lolFlat Earth Trucker Thanks this.
A pump driver operates a pump truck, and can fill above ground tanks as well as gravity drop to in ground tanks.
It’s fun, pays well and it’s somethinga little different.
Hauling gas is consistent regardless of who you work for.
Different companies have slightly different rules with how you drop, etc.
Really it’s semantics, but some are valid, in my opinion.
Always stick your tanks
Diesel drops first and alone
Triple validate your connections before pulling the handle, ensuring the right stuff goes into the right hole every single time, no excuses.
I can save you up to the point you pull the handle, then it’s all yours.
You WILL at some point get stuck to the ground.
You will make mistakes.
Own them completely.
It’ll go better for you every time.
Liars get run out of the business quickly, and drive for Schneider tank.
