    Nice to see people are happy there, and I heard as well they pay good. Only thing I don't get is why I see a ton of very nice former Este's trucks for sale at truck dealerships that are around 2007-2012 with descent mileage on them, while I see many more still working from the early 00's. Maybe it's because there local guys, but still. Either way if an older truck that's still mechanically sound means more $$$ in my pocket, I'm applying!

    the r getting rid of the 8600s i hear they had a lot of problems with them and the older internationals w/ the rockwell trannys.just old i guess but they pull good if you can find a decent one and one with a clutch brake or some sembilance of one.new Fls,KWs and volvos.
    my first paycheck in trucking in over 3 yrs that was over 1000 dollars,3111 miles.cant beat that,not bad for a new guy.
