    Ok so I turned in my application today for the TWT side since I was told thats where they're needing drivers. This is the position I wanted to start off in but I'm more then willing to go on the flatbed side too. I don't mind work at all, and god knows I could use a little bit of labor hahaha:biggrin_2559:. My ultimate goal is to get over to the tanker division but enough rambling. My question to anybody that works there is how's the miles, the staff, the equipment, and why do you enjoy working for this company? I should be starting at the first of the year. Thanks in advance guys

    when i was in school my instructor said they are a really good company to work for i tried to get on with them but make sure they are your first choice to work for if you go with somebody else before them and arent there for a year then they might not take you which was the case for me but i've heard they are good.
     
    militrucker Thanks this.

    They're my first choice with Schneider as my second. I'm waiting on my call from Curtis so I can find out more just thought I'd try and talk to some current drivers to see how it is now.

    Thanks I apperciate that. I talked to the guy from Schneider today that does all the hiring and he was telling me how most of his regional drivers usually don't get over 2300 miles. I was like what, then wtf are they doing cuz I know most drivers I've talked to average 2500 or more.

    I figure I could use a good trainer for awhile since I'm gonna start driving in the dead of winter. The way it's looking so far here in the NW we're in for a rough winter. I actually have a app for W/S too that was emailed to me. I just think that going out on my own after 10 days might be a little dangerous for me and the people around me. I'm really just waiting on my call from Curtis, Schneider called me the day after I turned in my app but Jim my instructor said he should be getting a intent to hire letter sometime this next week from TWT. I'm hoping I get it.
