    What company do you work for? Sounds like a nightmare of a job.

    I have actually looked at Keen, but for the hassle of running a 3 or 4 axle truck with a heavy, they don't pay what you'd expect. Heck, all I have to do here is throw a load lock on a load and make sure the reefer doesn't quit (plus put up with all the nannying and micromanaging)and I can clear $90k here. They say their 3 axle division makes up to $88k. You'd think they'd pay better to handle their stuff.
     
    Itsbrokeagain, Lonesome and JoeyJunk Thank this.

    So many memories today. Final is all the way in Pasadena,TX and I passed so many refinerys that I picked up as well as delivered too when I worked tanker at Schneider.

    Got to the customer at 9am for a 11am appointment. They then tell me that no appointment was set for this load and that it will be a work in. I was like oh great....just had to be my home load....but then they had a no show for the 930 spot so I got put in.

    Very nice lineage place where you just back in and they will open your doors on the inside.

    Good place so far.

    Yeah Keen is the mega of heavy haul, and in my opinion their equipment is crappy given how long they expect you to be out.

    They’re a great gateway to true heavy haul if that’s what you’re looking for, but beyond that I’d give them a pass…

    You wouldn't be happy at Keen. Too much free labor involved. 4axle trucks are percentage, but if you're not in the "chosen" you will be disappointed.

    They are a small sleeper for my taste, but at least they're not a Freightliner :rolleyes:

    Percentage is definitely a no go. That's the one thing that has kept me from going over to work with @Winnyf1 at Kivi...getting $0 to deadhead untold miles as a company driver is as bad as door slamming companies not paying like they should for detention or breakdown.
     
    Lonesome and dwells40 Thank this.

    Lol yeah but so long as the weekly pay works out, and I don’t have the nagging you have to put up with :).

    The biggest problem here for you would be the health insurance cost would likely be higher than what you get now, from what I recall you guys have a pretty competitive deal there.
     
    Lonesome Thanks this.
