    kllm is a wanna the better companies i believe, but you must be able to run very tired atleast 3 days in a row b4 you can get any sleep, i was in an accident last tuesday in west memphis,ar ive only been driving 7 months, i didnt get a ticket but the company decided i was at fault anyway. if u dont run tired u may only get 1500 mi per week. anybody have any advice for a newbie unsure what 2 do now? anyway ive run a few sentences together here now, but kllm doesnt have any trucks at the moment 2 put drivers into(except my old one). unfortunately i didnt realize u have 2 b dishonest 2 make any money in this line of work. does anybody have any advice for a victim of a 4 wheeler cuting them off in the rain and then having 2 stop suddenly?

    Keep away from KLLM unless you like being away from home. Tyson isnt alot better than that but you are delivering tyson products. From my experience a company that handles its own products is better than just a regular trucking company

    dougthebugman.. ive been talking with kllm they said they are out of trks right now cause drivers are not quiting like they usually do. kllm said they will have newer trks in at the end of april. and as far as running a few days a time with out no sleep i dont do that . cause ive ran hard in the past with some companys ive worked for . and when i get tired i just let my dispacther know im going to sleep and not to bother me until i let him know. ive ran as much as 5500 miles in a week. with out haveing to stay up days at a time. i dont like running that hard . but ive did it before . cause running days at a time with no sleep will lead into a very bad wreak. ive seen them and im pretty sure all of us drivers have seen wreaks like that before. and ur accident u had in memphis that got u fired .that will probaly be put on your dac report and that will screw you for a while . so the only advise i can probaly give u is try and hurry up and find a company to go with before that accident ends up on your dac . the only companys i know of that will take a driver with less than 7 mths exp. is swift , werner , schneider and companys like that maybe. good luck to you . and thks for the info about kllm .

    do they always put it on dak? what if i dispute then they will have 30 days to prove if i was at fault correct? R they 2 busy 2 mess with doing that? Also I was having to run very hard just 2 get 2800 mi, i had a3700 mi week that was much easier then most of the 26 2 2800 mi. weeks. Also do i hurry and get a job and not say anything? then would i get canned for not disclosing the accident?
    again thanx for replieing to my thread, I just dont know what 2 do, very new situation for me
