    Yes, marten . My bad .

    Marten has a strange pay rate , ok insurance. I'd be out 5 days ,home for two ..
    Crete says , I'd be home for my 34 with possible home for a 10 hr break during week

    I have a friend that was in saftey at Marten , horror stories galore !!!

    I worked at Crete carrier for 1 day , everyone there was nice to me everything seemed ok but I flunked my physical for blood pressure , if it wasn’t for that who knows I might still be there today.
    Call up J&R Schugel , Transport America or Dart transit all three in my book were fine company’s. JB Hunt was ok to but it’s a big ugly and you are just a cog in the machine there. Interstate Distributor was cool also but they are now Heartland which I know knitting about. Best of luck to you !!!

    I worked at marten 5 years. I would go Crete if I had to do it over again.
