    I know him personally and his experience is a hella lot different than mine. The big difference is elog. #### elog. Try running jersey or maryland on elog.... #### that. Never again. Ill take being stuck in mud blizzards and -30 temps anyday over elog. Because I can always run how I want. Period

    What you're actually saying is that you can't make money unless you run illegally. Elogs are great and easy to use, so say what you actually mean. When you need to run illegal to make money, you're at a #### carrier.

    Wow, read the newsletter that showed the raises. That's pathetic, and doesn't increase new driver pay a cent.

    O-M-G ! ! ! That's hilarious

    That pay raise is a joke. After 10 years you'll reach 40 cpm. Hey that's okay..... at least W&S drivers have "freedom"

    To quote Patrick Henry(founding father of America):
    "Don't Give Me A Living Wage But Give Me Freedom"

    My miles are good, the stop pay is high, and i have little to ##### about. I have been with Watkins since 2002 there certainly has been a lot of changes but i have no problems and still make a #### good living.

    Seems like the only good reviews come from the people that have been there for years. Seems like a lot of crap to deal with for years for a mediocre (at best) job.
