  3. It's photoshopped to be their color and it's a random truck at a truck stop.

    I know we all know recruiters are full of crap but I got an email I found funny. So look at pic and read what they are hiring for. So I'm a local guy now but why should I go to Cypress? Look at the pic, I get a custom painted long hood Pete? They're trucks are all white plastic hood trucks that run around here and usually dirty and beat to hell. Willing to pay, that's subjective I guess but I make $28/hr local, something tells me it's much much less than that lol. This is not slamming Cypress or any of their drivers because I know nothing about this company other than the beat to #### trucks I see running down 60 but I'm betting if I called and said I want $25/hr local and the Pete in the pic they would be unable to hang up on me because they would be rolling around in the floor laughing so hard.

    ^^^ Bet THAT'S an O/O's truck. Maybe @Chinatown has intel on this company?!? I've heard they are one of the few 'non megas' that hire out of Florida. Freight out of there sucks. Used to work for LGT; they went belly up years ago.

    Yea I've heard freight is rough around here. There are a CRAZY amount of tanker jobs tho. I bet I see at least 30-40 Dillon trucks, 20 Wapole trucks, and 10 Superior trucks every day.

    Besides Superior, I wonder if the others are intrastate ?!? Hmm... not sure. Wife is from Florida; have to ask her when she gets home (I'll be asleep, tho.)

    That pic of a 379 with matching colored tarps is a flat out lie.

    Any idea what Dillon hauls? Really don't recall seeing them here in Ohio, I used to haul asphalt...and noticed tanks more then, than I do now.

    I see them hourly around here and the tanks always say molten sulphur, I'm sure they haul other stuff too but that's all I have ever seen.

    That truck photo is an O/O. It’s also about 15 years old. The load on is drywall. Used to see it in sweetwater, tx all the time.
