    Anyone have any opinions on this outfit. Good, bad or indifferent. Not a whole lot on TTR about them. But from what I’ve found out so far, they seem like a pretty respectable group. I was approved to come aboard this morning. Spoke with recruiter. I have only 8 months of Flatbed experience. So a little nervous. But not scared. Was told I would be evaluated on securement and tarping a load during orientation. And if necessary ride along locally with a driver until I’m comfortable. Overall I have 25 plus years OTR experience.

    Anyway, any opinions are welcomed. And I thank you in advance.

    From what I’ve seen, they’re a top notch operation. No place is perfect, but you know that by now. Call them back and accept the job.

    Good looking dog.

    I have never worked for them, but have hauled a lot of their freight and dealt with them quite a bit in years past, they were very good to deal with back then and seemed like top notch.
