    May Trucking has a terminal in Pensacola. They’re good at that terminal. I ran for them for about 2 years. Get your experience, then move on to greener pastures.

    p.s. if you go there, try to get Amy as your DM. She’s great! Avoid Joni at all cost.

    Pensacola is ok. You've travelled a lot, so seems Pensacola would be a little boring for you though.
    You can find good trucking jobs about anywhere. You enjoy the water, so check out cities near the beaches. Florida and Texas are good; plenty of nice beaches and no state income tax.

    Now now now China.... We both know! Nevada has more beach than both those states put together! Nevada just lacks the ocean is all. Just a technical difficulty. :biggrin_25523:

    I did not know May Trucking had a terminal that far east. I learn something new every other day.

    That's not true...

    Enough said, call Ed.

    Paul. More lawyer, less fee.

    In a wreck? Need a check? Call Lerner and Rowe.
     
    Coffey and Chinatown Thank this.

    Other than lazy? She couldn’t give 2 squats about the drivers on her board. She’s a path of least resistance type. The Pensacola terminal rotates who works the weekends.

    I used to HATE it when Joni worked the weekend. I would literally ask Amy every Friday who was working the weekend. If it was Joni, I tried my best to make sure I had everything I needed to make til Monday.

    Joni wanted to grow up too fast, despite the Fonz trying to tell her otherwise. :D
