    Well I can tell ya I have dodged the bullet on the sleep test, so far, the model number I know of is ds450hs, ran into a poor guy that went threw it, we looked it up on line for about $519, and a face mask he bought from them, charged him another $269., on line $169, o they are not making any money o no!

    Most not all the people I have run into that have to have it for this job say it does, not work for them, I will not be here much longer but will post up too that point for other people to read.

    I am looking for other trucking company's, I can be home twice as much and make the same as I am now, and have a real apu on the truck, makes a big diff.

    This company is full of it, they have new posters up now saying $63,000, LMAO

    And when you drive into the main HQ, they a sign up be home weekly, LMAO AGAIN!!!!

    I had some of the office people there talk, and they all say one thing in common, they due not listen, and its getting worst, they hate working there. I talked too one old timer there this week, 15 yrs with the company, 695 miles as of Saturday, thats bad, he said he is starting to look.

    I have held back my op-ion as much as I can, but I am not staying with these folks, They have really put the spin=on.

    O and my Dispatcher doesn't work there anymore, I have been threw 3 of them in a week, I finally ask the last one if they was my dispatcher, ans-yes.

    More too follow!

    i hope you have all your bills paid and no debt cause your gonna need it drving for shaffer. be prepared to sit for days, get short runs, spend a lot of time in the northeast, and just generally be unhappy. Unless that is your happy with 300$ paychecks.

    Nope., left around the second week of May, I will update why I left, and how they handled paying back the lock fees etc.

    I am a contract Driver for Estes, doing Home Depot Deliverys via Flat bed.

    New Moffit, new Home Depot trl, 400,000 mile day cab, that was so dirty I had to take it to a car wash and spray washed the interrior out for 2 hrs, ya it was dirty, Dam!

    Home every day, working on salary, no beny's, if I work 3 hrs I still get a full days pay.

    Every sunday off and only work about 4 hrs on saturdays, and we are getting ready to go to every other weekend off.

    Days start between 0630 and 0700, not bad.

    I am making with in $34, of what I was avg doing the over the road stuff.



    Any questions ask away.:biggrin_25517:

    Well I started this thread when I was about to start working for Shafter but I have since left and am now working locally for more money and home everyday. I've also lost about 55 lbs and still dropping weekly by almost 5 lbs.

    What killed it for me at Shafter was sitting for 10+ hrs and not getting paid for it at Tyson Foods. I dont buy their crap anymore.
