    I've never driven there, but I can give you some trucker hearsay! I believe their P@D pays more than linehaul, they're kinda backwards there. Good hourly wage, but no OT for city guys. I think linehaul pays by the trip. Insurance is probably pricey, but I'm used to the free stuff. Decent looking equipment. Some of their drivers haul ### through construction zones, might be an indicator of how hard they're pushed.

    Interestingly enough our line haul driver at Reddaway was just telling me that part about a flat rate for trips as line haul driver.

    Man, there's always something wrong with the company that is interesting in hiring you lol

    yes we have trip pay on linehaul, where ever you work now stay there. don't come to r&l thinking it's a step up because you would be shooting yourself in the foot. you don't see alot of old timers around here just new guys that forget to open the doors on a van before backing in to the dock.seen that many times.......

    Not many companies offer free resort in 3 States for their employees.

    I have been reading a lot of reviews and many people share your opinion.

    I had a buddy that worked for them just for awhile and said the company was worthless. They do trip pay for linehaul. Other than that I I don't know much about them other than the free resorts don't really justify working there.

    I told Dennis about the interview on Saturday he just laughed and told me he only hear horrible things about them.

    I'm getting less and less excited...

    I've heard city drivers need to furnish their own pallet jack. Something to consider.

    All the R&L P&D drivers I used to run into regularly were good dudes, and none of them dogged their employer. They seemed pretty happy with their jobs.
