    Brother and I are teaming so far it’s week 4 for us. I’m new to this company and he’s a rehire his last team ditched him. So far it’s good, east and west runs. We live in VA our week will start with a pickup somewhere east and will take a load to CA and usually bring a produce load back so far it’s been going to stop and shop in MA. So far the con here is all repairs done with Ryder.

    i worked years ago for Lily...i liked the job...but then i left and glad i did, as Lily sold out the truck ownership/shops to Ryder, and concentrated only on personnel.

    Ryder ain't that bad, my last employer leased our trucks through Ryder, took really great care of our trucks.
     
    Speed_Drums and Puppage Thank this.

    most likely, many of the shops did not have an experienced mechanic on duty at the time. Ryder, Penske, Ruan shops generally hired people out of the trade/tech schools, that pretty much only know how to drain the oil and refill.

    like i said, my company and i, never had any issues.

    I had a buddy who used to drive for Lily out of ME... Something about hauling lab rats from one facility to the next. Interesting stuff there.
