    I'll call him tomorrow and find out for you, he's up in Canada making a dev. he works out of Nitro WV. He bought his truck threw them. Took the Tractor Purchase Plan, I Know he made take home pay over 62,000 as of this pass Oct. I already talked to them about working over there and I would be working out of their West Elizabeth terminal just out of Pittsburgh Pa.

    Only the company drivers are union. East St. Louis, Memphis, Mobile and El Dorado, Ar.
    There are two "fleet" terminals, Richmond IN and Pittsburg.
    Miller is a good company. Its all Haz-mat, no food grade at all.
    I've worked there 3 years and it's the best trucking job I've had.
    Brought home over 60k last year, but that was staying out 10-14 days. Im dedicated now and am home most weekends and can usually sneak through the house during the week.

    Do they do much out of e St. Louis? I live around there, checked website job postings and they had none listed for any terminal. Any idea how much experience they want?

    We are always busy out of ESL. Usually the O/O's are out 10-14 days depending on central dispatch. Some are out and back and some may go to b,c or d to get home.
    Good thing is, if you need to be home, let them know as far ahead as you can, and they will get you there.
