    Go for it. Coca Cola is about as recession proof as you’ll find. Much better than any Truckload Carrier or LTLs. More than any Freight Company. Good steady work, holidays, summertime, it never ends. Good place to be during a recession. Beats spending the weekend at a Truckstop, 1000 miles from home, waiting on the unknown. I remember when it seemed every other Driver was asking who I hauled for, and if I was getting any miles. OTR does slowdown during a recession, while Companies try to avoid cheap loads, miles go down. Drivers pay often goes down also, at best it stays the same. With current inflation, it’s going down, even if it stays the same. I vote for Coke, especially during a recession. Truckload OTR is always going to be available, should you change your mind.

    Yes. In that case I would just say the black employees need to whiten up. Now I've seen white guys with dreads. I don't know how much whiter they can get.

    Because they understand they might not make more than they did otr per hour spent driving, but it makes up for it because we don’t get paid for our breaks out here.

    I might not be working on my 10 but I #### sure ain’t at home either

    You do know, that will eventually get you kicked out of the club, don’t you? It happened to Herman Cain and Bill Cosby!

    Had a friend that spent 14 years at Coca-Cola before going O/O. Is Pepsi employee owned like coke is?
