    Hey ya'll! My husband & I have applied for a team position out of Nashville, TN. We're just waiting to get the all clear from Universal Enroll to go take our Hazmat test. So after reading through most of this thread we have a few questions......
    1. Can we request a manual trans?
    2. Is 73mph still the top speed?
    3. Still getting sleep# beds?
    4. What appliances are provided?
    5. What's waiting period for insurance?
    6. Is there a sign on bonus?
    7. What are pet restrictions?
    *we have 2 midsize boxers
    That's all I got for now...but I'm sure more will come.

    1. Can we request a manual trans?
    I don't believe any team trucks are manual.
    2. Is 73mph still the top speed?
    72 actually.
    3. Still getting sleep# beds?
    Nope, not here.
    4. What appliances are provided?
    Small fridge, its not the slide out so it has some decent space.
    5. What's waiting period for insurance?
    90 days IIRC
    6. Is there a sign on bonus?
    Not that I got. :D
    7. What are pet restrictions?
    *we have 2 midsize boxers
    I wouldn't know about this.

    They still have so much more to offer than several other companies!

    Was just wanting to see if everyone is still there and how they like it.

    Only question that comes to mind is how hard is it to get a dedicated run, I know it's a terminal by terminal basis. But are there terminals that have more dedicated runs than others? Were willing to relocate almost anywhere.

    It’s not bad for team. They are busy. It’s all drop and hook. I got a bid within 2 months. Different everywhere though. All depends on the terminal size to be honest. I believe if you hire on at one terminal and move to another you start at the bottom again. Running wild they still move you pretty well. Lot of times you will meet a solo driver and swap and keep going.
