    An experienced driver with a little past just wondering ..would you pick Paschall truck lines or Southern Refrigerated Trucking. And Why? I know they are not the best companies in the world but anyone have experience? PTL is offering .43-44cpm and SRT .42-45cpm (depending on verifications).
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.

    If it were me, I'd look at these concerning both companies:
    PTL - dry van and stays eastern states, except some teams may run west.
    SRT - refrigerated and runs coast to coast.
    *
    Personal preference; I'd choose SRT because I prefer coast to coast refrigerated trucking.
    Which do you prefer?

    Big-M Transportation is a 48 state carrier that sometimes hires drivers with a "little past."
    The company isn't too well known and it's not large either.

    I know a guy who lives in Clarksville, he actually did well with PTL. He was out on the road maybe 3 weeks at a time. He went about as far west as Colorado. That's a large enough portion of the country to make a living. He now works for First Express. If your past is 3-5 years old, there are more options than you know.

    I can't speak about SRT but paschall Truck lines is a huge rip-off and they will stick it to you every way they can.
