    Training is 3 weeks, unless trainers trk breaks down like mine did. I can not in all honesty recommend this company to anybody right now. I've been sitting in Plainview, Tx right now for 3 days waiting on a frigging load. This company would rather have drivers sitting on their butt than to try and comptently plan!!!!!

    Yah, keep forgetting they lease some of the older trucks also tho they really try to get them to go for the newer ones.
    Reason I sat at that #### meat plant was so they could get me a load going by a yard to get a PM done. It really is a shame that they think its ok to eff a drvr as long as the dang PM gets done!!!!!!
