    Anyone on here that's out of this terminal? Or anyone know much about this one?

    Thanks!

    It's the biggest terminal that I know of. Showers and laundry are available. Houston is a big time chemical city, so I can only assume that there are plenty of loads. They have late night mechanics and a tank wash. The dispatch staff there has always been nice to me. My runs out of there have always been good, like 700+ miles. It takes a while just to get out of TX.

    Thank you! Very true! If you don't mind my asking, what terminal do you run out of?

    It's a good company with great terminal in Pasadena. One of the better terminals in the entire country. But bad equipment and poor maintenance of trucks. Mechanics are no good and terminal does not want to spend much money on trucks. Everything else is good :D

    Just recently got my cdl and have been driving reefer but want to switch over to tanker. Is this company any good? Do they hire new drivers 3-6 months? Also, do they have any automatics, as I have an automatic endorsement on my license.

    They hire new drivers right out of some schools but not many. Need a year to 18 months otherwise. The fleet is switching over to automatics but for now you need to be able to shift.
