    Wright just announced that we are getting a .03 a mile raise effective May 7th. That will put me at .46 a mile.

    Wright has been too good to me. My kids got me a Corvette Experience on the 27th and my dispatcher was able to get me to Bowling Green on the 26th early. Then, a long weekend surrounded by my dream cars.

    Now, I'm in Mobile, aka home 1, for my MIL's surgery today.

    Wright is really family oriented.

    This is the first company I've ever worked for that I can't find a complaint about. I highly recommend giving them a look see.

    The job is not fun anymore. Rush, rush, rush, only to get held up by idiots, all the while that #### DOT clock counts down like a wicked school marm.

    Wright is still a great company, don't get me wrong. It is the world outside of the Wright yard that sucks for us. The lack of professionalism really saddens me.
     
    Ougigoug, G13Tomcat and JohnBoy Thank this.

    Well, I'm getting close to my one year mark with Wright. That should tell you all something about this company.

    I'm currently on my way up to Wisconsin to do a delivery and pickup back down to Alabama.

    Safe travels to all!!!!
     
    mitrucker, Jrdude5, G13Tomcat and 2 others Thank this.
