    Cleaned my truck out yesterday and had the wife/kids come get me from Trenton. Guess this post is for all the Newbies. Millis was great to me... Everything they promised was delivered. I ran well.. 3200 mi average for nearly 2 years. Had a brand new truck after 3 months of being solo. Always got home ontime. Trained 2 students. No complaints. I would do it all over again if I was just starting out. Only things I hated about working for Millis had nothing to do with the company. I have 3 little ones at home and being away 3-5 weeks at a time started to wear on me. It was a great place to get my experience and make good money while being a rookie. I notified Millis Tuesday after I got a call from a local company that I was hired. They had me routed to a terminal to clean out the truck and get home within 2 days. I was told that they would be MORE then happy to bring me back if it didnt work out with the new company. Class act company IMO. I wasnt thrilled about the cameras and some of the changes. BUT as a new driver trying to get into trucking.. I still think it would be HARD to do better then Millis. Depending on your home situation it would be a good company to hang with for a while. Good luck to all future Millis drivers... See all you guys on the road!

    Thanks Steve. Im moving to a company that has its own private fleet. Kinda like Ashley's funiture has their own trucks. Its a place that has a plant about 2 mi from my house. 130 or so trucks...25 out of my city. They manufacture packaging materials. Home weekends and 1-2 times during the week. Paper logs... no govern trucks.. ect ect But we will see.. everything sounds great on paper LOL.

    Check with recruiter. They should know. Of course it could change between now and then.
