    When I first started with Superior 11 years ago I met a guy who lived on his boat in the Tampa Clearwater area. He ran OTR out of the Georgia terminal just north of Jacksonville. He parked the truck at Lakeland That terminal is mostly local work.

    I live in Houston and I'm going to be starting CDL school in September and Superior is at the top of the list for companies that I'm considering.

    A couple of questions I have:
    1. Can someone give me a rough idea of what the regional runs are like out of the Pasadena terminal? Are they mostly out-and-back overnights or are you likely to stay out most of the week? I wouldn't mind staying out longer if the money is right, just curious how they run?

    2. Can someone give a rough estimate between what the system/otr drivers get paid vs regional drivers? I understand system drivers are out 10-14 days typically which I wouldn't mind either again if the the pay is worthwhile?

    I took the standard 5 panel urine test. I would get a home test kit and test myself before reporting for a company test just to make sure you’re good.

    When you say, " .....I quit smoking..." if you refer to cigarette or cigars you should be ok, no worries.

    I took my test 2 years ago. Pasadena,Tx. And it was regular drug test. DOT. I pointed location cause it could be different by terminals which I doubt it. So good luck

    hotel days? Did you do LTL before here? Just curious. When I came into this industry, I found it easier, for me, to sleep after 12PM....too much of a morning person! haha
