    Curiously, being honest, how is PJax to work for? What's the basic scoop on how they operate. They are hiring close to me. I hate to jump ship where I am now, but I haven't worked 20 hours in months. That's not feeding the kids and one driver I talked to a while back seemed to be happy.

    I hear they have no safety dep't. That means no one to back you up if they try to run you over hours. Just hearsay though...

    they wont run you over hours (they did back in the day i heard) but now the second your 1 minute over 14/60 or whatever it is your busted and will be suspended..they are all over your time.they definatly keep a good look at hours ! i cant fill you in on there city work but if its linehaul i can answer any questions..out of cleveland we average probally about 2700 miles a week throughout the year.some weeks 3000 others 2600. no layoffs ever! they never told me no if i have hours left and want to take a weekend load..even when i was only here a few months they still found me weekend work..so if 2700 aint enough you can always grab 400-500 on sat/sun if need be..never forced weekend work either no matter how new you are

    Never had a problem runnning out of hours in Spring City besides i don't wanna work that many hours anyway.50-55 hours a week.Dispatch gets a printout of drivers hours every morning if your not sure what you got all you have to do is ask.I know you used to be able to check your hours on the time clock not sure if you still can.
