    Yep still here and loving it. Out of Kearny you will be in a auto. Volvo or freightliner no older than 3 years. I'm a furniture guy out and back. Wouldn't have it any other way. You may can ask about a manual there may still be some out there but I think they are all autos now. MS guys are the only manuals left they are only assigned to us guys out of Myrtle, MS cause they are leased from Penske here.
    Any other questions let me know.

    Awesome thanks for the info. I;m sure I'll have more questions lol. I have exp, and just trying to stay closer to home. Let's see how it goes on the 5th. No driver facing cams correct? I can put up with a lot but I'm not sure if I can tolerate that.
    Thanks again.

    No cameras at all. Trucks run 65 which is the only downside. I'd like to have a little more but you learn to deal with it lol. Every terminal is different but down here we get home every weekend usually longer than a 34. And good thing about furniture is places are only open in the day time Monday-Friday lol. I think they do furniture up there too just not sure how much. But they just picked up big account so it's picked up a lot too.

    It's really not all that bad. I mean I don't kill myself doing it. In my opinion we get paid really well for what we do. Some of the places are tight and hard to get into but you figure it out. i have had 2 different oppurtunities to leave and go to different companies and I have stayed. And I'm happy I did.
