    I am looking to hear from Driver who have driven for them,
    I am completely aware that they bought out Packerland, I also understand that the Management that was there 1 year ago is no longer, So what I want to know is about Driver who are there now, or are prior drivers, Sorry to all the wives of drivers, but I am looking for first person experiences, not the "he said she said" story thank you very much. But Sometimes hearing it straight from the Driver himself/herself can better tell it than someone who is emotionally attached to someone.

    Well I aint heard squat from no one, and I will post what I think about them starting Monday Night as I will be in Greeley for orientation, They do fly you in versus the greydog. I am flying in from Norfolk, VA on a Flight with food Bonus, a Hot meal to boot. The Hotel they put you up in is ONE person to a room unless you are a team. I will keep this updated or start a thread my Adventures at JBS lol. Hoping for the best as I am not muchon Job Hoping, hate that crap more than anything.

    Big Rigger Did you work for them?
    I figured some wait time, considering they own the Meat packing plants, and that is an expected with grocery, meat and produce I do have a contingency plan if that falls through.

    No but I used to load at the same places the last couple of years.I was with Holland Enterprises which was a great place to pull reefer freight if you are having second thoughts.

    That would be great if you will. I know they have nice equipment and the school says good things about them, just not sure what all I can believe form them. Plus I only live about 30 mins south of Greeley.

    Look forward to the updates.

    Well I have the Confirmation number for the Flight, and Starting Pay is .40 per mile, Which is great, but I am hesitant about not getting the miles, If they fall below 2700 avg My future will change, as I can not sustain on less than 10k a month, there are many carriers doing this rather easily. So We shall see.

    I looked at their site you working there now?
    I used to work out of Detroit Lake, MN they are not that far out But getting home might be an issue with them, as I am in Southern Virginia.
