    Really? It must vary considerably from one terminal to the next, but I drove linehaul with my hubby out of Parsons, KS for 2 years (and wish I didn't have to take these meds for my medical condition, causing my inability to drive a tricycle let alone a truck!), and most of the terminals we went to the people (dispatchers, operations managers, terminal managers) were all very congenial, actually we were treated like family, never a stranger to them.
    We never had to go to the Tonawanda terminal, and it sounds like I should count my lucky stars! Sorry you had such a sour experience with them, but that's not how it is at the majority of the terminals.

    How hard is it to get hired with this company? I have a terminal near where I live. I don't have much experience ( I'm a rookie) have about 5 months driving class A for a soft drink company. I attended a very reputible Class A driving school in my area, but none of these companies seem to want to give a guy a chance. It's very frustrating and I'm about ready to just give up my cdl and go back to doing something else.

    Depends on which terminal. They actually send recruiters to cdl schools in PA. A few months ago they had 14 openings in PA for linehaul positions and filled them with new cdl grads.
