    They are closing the Weedsport terminal. I suspect some more significant changes are coming with this being the first. The last 2 companies they flipped very quickly.

    From the looks and sound of things, there will be plenty of steady year round work.

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!

    I'm in training right now at Trenton, OH. Bill, the instructor there, said all the manual training trucks were retired in November. Not sure if this is Millis wide or just here.

    Also from what I have seen and heard, the changes right now are in the trucks, air ride passenger seat replaced with standard seat, upper bunk removed, air dump and 5th wheel release removed, and table removed. New trailers have had air ride removed for springs.

    My truck still has air dump and 5th wheel release so that's strange rest of the stuff I can't comment on other stuff since my truck has double bunk and air ride seat for students

    From the looks and sound of things, Millis is going the way of strip down model trucks & trailers, most likely to save on maintenance & repair costs.

    I did hear back from my recruiter who confirmed all classes are now using automatics.... I guess I can also have the restriction removed later if need be. As for the trucks not having all of the above mentioned features, I’m very surprised. Millis even advertises those features as perks on there website. I mean I don’t really need an upper bunk or passenger air ride. Even the 5th wheel release is just a convenience thing but the table?! What a ridiculous thing to get rid of. I would imagine it makes cooking in a truck pretty tough. I had planned on bringing a 2 qt crockpot and 2 qt air fryer but without a table I’m not sure how I’d use them.

    Good luck on your journey. I had a seat reserved in the Richfield, WI location that started Jan 11, but chose to start with a different company. Heard very good things about Millis and the training program. Search up Southerndad on here as he does a excellent journal of his experience with Millis. He also has a YouTube channel that follows his training with Millis. MidLife Trucker.
