    Run away, there trucks are all old with almost a million miles on them, but maintained well. as for pay its 22% of the load. so when your empty your working for FREE. they use paper logs but with the way safety wants you to log they might as well be electronic log books. all i can say is if you like working for free and never go home then this place is for you. i worked there from 02/2011 to 06/2011 and i couldnt wait to leave. on the average your looking at a take home pay of around 650 bucks a week. these guys are the bottom feeders in the tank hauling world. first you get work then your load gets cancelled or they have you sit somewhere and usually not at home due to a lack of work. personally i would stay far far away from this hillbilly redneck company.

    Trucks look kinda sharp but thats to make up for the fact that they are garbage underneath all that chrome and sharpness.

    I have to reply i went to work for them. i have a 2008 w900l. 6in pipes lights on breatherscrome all the way around it wooden steering wheel etc.. I have been there since i made the first post. They have treated me very well.They will not make you work so if you want to lay in truck stops or jak shacks,and settle for 650 then so be it. For the trucks being worn out you should have took it and hade the bad parts fixed.I dont want to offend you or make you mad. Heck we might even be friends who knows.

    ok dannyboy28 if your still more then likely i have ran into you at some point but maybe not. as for the trucks i guess your one of the lucky ones. i had truck 470 a 2001 kenworth W900, it had a c12 motor useless engine in my opinion, but anyways. as for getting things they are somewhat good with that. i got into my truck back in febuary wasnt worried about a/c at that point. but hell try sleeping in a truck when the weather got a tad warmer with no a/c, very uncomfortable to sleep in those conditions. as for getting S*** fixed i ran for about 4-5 weeks with a broke ##### a/c and rob in dispatch REFUSED to let me get it fixed at a T/A truckstop. now i tend to agree with most that a T/A are not all that good at fixing things, but after all its a simple a/c system. Rob insisted i had to go to kenworth. well we all know how that works at a dealer, everytime i was in buffalo kenworth says we cant get to it today. so weeks fighting with no a/c i asked if it was ok to goto cleveland bros they were on my route to baltimore when i was running asphalt.
    As for your comment about truckstop jumpers and jak shack watchers, not me. i ran whatever they gave me. i would only on average take home around 600-650 a week. my best run was from florence vermont to the upper peninsula of michigan. that week i took home about 1300 for that week, but hell that i was a one time deal. all the other weeks your straving and the company (KUHNLE) has major inside issues.
    the calling in everyday (begging) for work is retarded. and when they decided to let me go, which im happy as hell for that. i was pulling a soda ash load from ohio to montreal. was suppose to do 2, well after the first one was delivered, got a call from rob saying 2nd was cancelled and i might as well go home. that seemed to happen alot while i was there. LOAD CANCELLED. so i was sent home a few days before memorial day. after being out on the road for 5 weeks straight. so i was home for the memorial day weekend. now after all is said and done with they had me go out to lakeville and they had me sit there from tuesday till friday morning. then when i called in on friday begging again for work. rob said man were dead no work. another thing that seems to happen alot there.NO WORK. so when rob said man were dead i was put on hold and spacey casey got on and told me to clean out my truck and find my own way home (NICE COMPANY). so in the meantime i have filed a unpaid wage complaint against KUHNLE for unpaid wages since it was michelles brilliant idea to have me sit in lakeville. from tuesday till friday morning. they didnt pay for my tiime to sit there or the holiday or my 1 personal day. so anyday now i will hear about my wage complaint againest this low life ###### company that you praise. trust me when i tell you kuhnle is the bottom feeders of the tank industry. and at 22% of the load what a joke. but oh yea kim has a super nice camper. as they say not everyones a good fit at a company and not every company is a good fit with a driver. i wasnt a good fit with this ###### company. im now onto bigger and MUCH better things with my new company im working for. i drive a 2012 kenworth T700 and making,and in 6 days i have ran 2700 miles and i already get paid for the 4th and i got NYC pay, .44/mile and it doesnt matter if im empty or loaded im paid either way. so you enjoy working for free because when your empty. your working for free. i dont know about you but i really dont like working for free, and you enjoy that wonderful .22%.
    i not looking to start a bad rumor about a company, but when asked im going to speak the truth. im sorry that you disagree but thats your choice.

    Greetings Tankerman,

    When did you work there? Was it recently? Sorry you had a bad experience :( Sounds like you really like your present company. Who do you work for now?
