    My family is wanting to move to Redmond,OR and I have an oppurtunity with COTC. Haven't been OTR in 11yrs. Currently running Portland Metro area with 8 axle dump truck at 18hr with ot a 40hrs. Thinking maybe stay here til economy picks up and can find a job with similar pay and home regularly! Does COTC get you home on Friday for home time or not til Sat?

    My husband works for COTC, and they generally get him home the day he requests, whether it is Friday or Saturday. And usually he gets in the evening before his hometime begins. Hope that helps!

    From what little I know about Central Oregon Tarping Company, it is basically an entry level flatbed company that tarps EVERYTHING, needed or not. Not sure you would be happy with the pay considering where you're coming from with overtime and all.

    I appreciate the feedback. Hope to hear more. I know the pay wont be near as good and work a little harder but I'm mainly looking for a job that will allow my family the transition to Redmond from Portland.

    Thanks again for the info! Gonna start orientation on the 30th of April. Staying on good terms with current employer! I think I want to look into their 8 axle units after I get moved this summer.
