    I'm out of Sacramento (McClellan Park). We primarily support the DC's in McCarran and Red Bluff, but also venture into SoCal, Oregon, Washington and AZ or UT on occasion.

    Have an onboarding date set for the Centralia yard in January down in Red Bluff. Obviously nothing is set in stone yet, but just kind of curious how red bluff operates. I’ve good and bad about Red Bluff. Grew up west of Redding so I’ve always been curious of them.

    Red Bluff is a GM DC, and there is usually minimal waiting for dispatches from that DC. As far as everything else..shop, facilities, office..no complaints. As a Centralia driver, you'd probably be running more out of Grandview (food) and Hermiston (GM). I rarely ever see any PNW drivers at Red Bluff, and when I'm up at Hermiston or Grandview, see plenty of Red Bluff or Sacramento drivers. BTW, Centralia is a drop/transfer yard much like Sacramento. Not an actual DC, but set up to support the surrounding region and other local DC's.

    Hope that helps. Good luck with onboarding should you commit to WM.

    Thanks! I appreciate it. I knew it was a drop yard, and the recruiter made it sound like you’ll basically bounce from DC to DC and to stores. Sounded like they move a lot of stuff from DC to DC as well
