    Craigslist ads are just easier to keep running - we would run ads when I was in the office even when we were full. Carriers will always make room for great driver. Trucks are easy to buy/rent, great drivers are hard to find.

    I asked My boss why we were running ads and processing applications even though we didn't have any open trucks that week. He then asked me "What are the chances another John/LBD/JP/Lisa (Top Tier drivers at my company) is going to be looking for a job at the exact same time that we have an open truck?"

    IDK if that is the situation with May Trucking, but at the end of the day, if you are running that many ads, its just as hard and time consuming to turn them all off as it is to just keep them running on schedule.

    Hey, I'm the first to admit that I might be wrong. I don't know you.

    And calling out companies who outright lie to truck drivers is admirable, but I'm still of the opinion that advice from drivers who aren't in the Top tier at a company is a waste of time. I could give you my opinions on why 31 NFL teams are going to suck this year... But that opinion might mean more if I was a successful NFL GM.

    For every 100 nasty posts from failed drivers about (Insert Mega/Micro) Company, there are 10 silent drivers who figured out their system, and are making good money there. It should be better, but it is what it is. Those are the drivers I'd like to hear from. Maybe it's just me...

    I am going to edit that post to remove the @Tag for you, because while I started with a reply to you, it sort of became a different post. I'm still feeling like there is a bitter resentment in your post that is being aimed in the wrong direction... but regardless... you're right. I am being unfair. I am judging you without knowing you or your life experiences, and that's not right. My apologies. Really

    And yes, I did spew a lot of words in that post, I got lost on a few tangents, but the big take away I think was this:

    We are the victims of our own doing. We rewarded the bad companies with BS #'s until we convinced a large segment of the formerly honest companies that they had no other choice but to play the game.

    So I joined this forum to reminisce and hear what the big orange is up to. I drove for them from Oct. 2003-March 2007, before starting with LTL, then later on to...browner pastures, as it were. I ran the P&G regional account, out 12, off 2, mostly east of the Mississippi and drop and hook. It was...Okay. Relatively easy, but I pushed myself at a crushing pace. (this paragraph look familiar?)
    so... were you trolling about CRE? or was your thread made up in 2016?

    Ok, I'll go with the idea behind the original post here.

    Looking at these companies the far.

    USXpress
    TMC
    Maverick
    Cargo Transporters
    Schneider

    Of all these, the one that has "offered" me the most "promises" far and above any others, is USXpress
     
    Rocknroller4 Thanks this.

    I don’t have any experience with any of them, I live and work pretty close to Maverick’s headquarters (North Little Rock, AR).

    All I know about them:

    - They have a really nice campus.
    - They pull flatbed, reefer and glass
    - Their truck’s are slow
    - They have cameras in their trucks
    - All of their trucks are Freightliner and appear to be well maintained

    What do YOU want to do? Flatbed? Dry box? Reefer? That will help you decide which company to go with.
