    I’m not to surprised to hear they shut completely down. Worked for them for a year 7/16-7/17. Started right after they got bought out. Loved working for Watkins before the pumpkin fleet started doing any major changes. Love the company I’m with now. Wish I know about them before applying to Watkins. Still sad to hear them end of the company.

    I knew it would happen. I enjoyed driving for WS. The crew in Missoula was pretty cool too. I left as soon as the orange devil started major changes. Mainly when I couldn't get maintenance done on the truck properly. Met a few good drivers there. Hope they do well.

    I was down in Bozeman and I was supposed to start with WS in June. Then Reddaway came along and scooped me up from underneath and gave me a local job. The Zoo town Reddaway barn was just down the road from WS.
