    I don't know about that terminal specifically but overall you are getting on with a great company if you do come on board.

    I'm out of Auburn ME so I pass through there often. They are busy and have good runs dedicated and system. Dan in dispatch is a good guy. The only down side is the terminal footprint is a bit smallish and can get tight at times. It's also a public tankwash so you'll have other companies in and out of there.

    yes, I think superior is a good company, thanks to wsyrob and your treads being very open and informative, and the few drivers I met in a wash. I am looking for a OTR position, or will spend more time on the road before coming back, the sleepers look smaller on the Macks I saw, and I wonder if trucks are the same in all terminals or they have bigger sleepers available?

    I saw a pic of the Springfield terminal on SC website and I also thought was small, I wonder if they have showers, bedrooms, kitchen and long parking for my car when I am on the road.

    Most if not all terminals have parking for your personal vehicle when you are out on the road. Every terminal I have been to has drivers rooms with tv, microwave, shower, coffee. Some nicer than others.

    Sleepers on the trucks could be a little bigger but I guess that is the compromise you have to make if you want to work for a company that pays well. I have learned to live with it as most others have.

    As far as amenities go, the Springfield terminal is on the bottom side of the list. The only real redeeming thing is that they have a Keurig machine.

    Oh No!, just a Keurig Machine, I only work at places that have a at least a good Jura-Capresso J6 machine! Got keep my fine stands.
    Just kidding, I'll check the terminal when I am there doing my interview and the town also, but is good to have a place to just drop truck n don't have to worry about, but I live in Boston and later I'll have to relocate closer to SC, so whatever amenities I could use at the terminal to organize myself between truck and home would help.
    Thanks David.

    Talking about the SC trucks, Does the truck come with fridges? Does SC allow the removing of the passenger seat?
    Thanks.
