    Anyone work for, have worked for, or have any info on this company? I applied for a local position with them, and have been invited in for an interview. I can't seem to find any information anywhere, good or bad, about them.

    Any info would be appreciated, thanks!

    If its for the Joann Fabrics acct? RUN...RUN VERY FAST. FAR FAR AWAY. Worked that acct for Greatwide till Jrayl just took it over this month. This is the 3rd company in 6 months to have this acct. Why? Not enough pay for the work you have to do. Lots of back breaking work for extreemly little pay. Make more money at McD. Check to see what acct first.

    thanks for the info, when I do the phone interview tomorrow I will ask what account it is, all I know right now is that it is local, home "most" nights and off every weekend.

    That sounds like it. Thats exactly how it was. Joann warehouse doesnt work weekends. Its at the old cat plant in Hudson, OH. It really went down hill when Greg, Joann's ex-transportation manager, left back in April. Gaurds at the gaurdshack were pretty kool. But, the work isnt worth it unless they willing to pay over $55,000 per year. Make sure you get it in writing. We constantly got ripped off. Not even close to 55,000. More like 35-40,000. Its lots of manual backbreaking tailgate work. Just giving you the real truth that lots of companies dont want to tell you. FYI. Good luck

    and I appreciate the truth! I don't know what the pay is, they haven't discussed that yet, just have a letter that I meet their qualifications and they want to talk to me further, I have 40 questions for them right now, LOL

    Jrayl is a great company. I run regional for them. All the guys i have talked to that are on the Joann run love it. i do mostly tires on my runs. i dont know much about the local guys but i think most of them just shuffle the trailers from columbus to akron and then run around ohio and sometimes michigan and pennsylvania. So if it sounds good to you then come on aboard. Most local jobs dont pay near what the OTR and regional jobs pay but i am not sure about ours. it still probably isnt too bad. I am home weekends and sometimes one night a week.
