    Before you waste you waste your time filling out an application-ask Marci to let you read the employee manual...(which you have to sign to get hired).
    It locks you into working for them for 3 months or you are liable for over $1000 for drug test, travel, hotel, meals, drive test, and so on....

    You'll be lucky to make that much in a week working for them...which will kiss that last week of income goodbye.

    Coldliner Express should be renamed F***liner express or FoolsLineup express.
    This place is a very bad driving experience...but Marci knows recruiting and is very good at locking a driver into paying for her truck for at least three months.
    Don't bother with this company.

    I left after 6.5 weeks. They did charge me for Travel and Hotel ($500ish), which I agreed to and had no problem repaying. A agreement is a agreement. Life lesson learned I suppose?

    According to my W-2 I got in today, I earned $4,500 in the 6.5 weeks there. Subpay, which is one of the many reasons I left. Less than $1,200/wk and I'm wasting my time.

    Can't charge you for a Rod Test, just Travel and Hotel. If one needs money for meals for 2 days, you'really in a very bad shape to begin with. I have never heard of any Driver being so broke they needed money to eat on. That's a bad way to be. Never leave any Company completely penniless.

    However, it was orginally owned by Marci and Doug. They ran it like they do their new Company now. They sold it off and took a few years off to calm their names.

    No kidding, a little Doug and Marcie freak show trivia there, awesome.

    I only lasted with the freak show a couple of loads and I was out of there. Drove their truck back to them and left it in their lot un-dispatched and lucky for them it happened to be empty.
