    if you pass the Physical they will hire you if you have enough time OTR you will go to spend 3 days learn they stuff then they will ship you to the nearest terminals since looks like your from ATL you will be out of the ATL terminal. That is one most busiest terminal in TA has. With TA as a OTR or[FONT=arial, Georgia, verdana] regional you will get the miles. [/FONT]

    True, the miles are there for those that want to drive. A friend of mine who started with the company a month ago is getting over 2,700 miles a week. I can't complain at all about my miles, just wish I had more hours on the clock daily to drive.

    Can any of you current drivers tell me a little about equipment? I'm curious about apu's, inverters, safety features, etc.......

    Thanks

    Freightliner Cascadia and Columbias. Navgo GPS. Newer trucks have APU, you can idle when it gets 30 degree and lower and above 80 degrees . Espar bunk heaters in all tractors. some trucks have that follow thing like if you get to close it will put on the brakes.
     
    renegadejd Thanks this.

    The APU's are really an EPU the best you have is 14 hrs and, this is one of the points i was mislead about, i yad a cascaida with 325,000 it pulled decent, my truck was older i had just a bunk heater it was fair, the trucks and, trailors were fair, it is the night dispatch that makes this company bad, they play good cop bad cop, and do not call them for anything or you will get an ear full
