    Good pay and benefits. You will earn every last penny you make there. If your going city take your time. Don't run like crazy.

    You shooting for linehaul or P&D? Each terminal is a little different, but I do know they aren't scared of working you pretty hard. If you go P&D, just go slow and take it easy. Always remember safety first, and no matter how many stops they put on you, just relax and don't let it stress you. A common theme seems to be the more work you do, the more they expect from you. I believe in doing an honest day's work...just don't go out there and try to be superman and hurt yourself or someone else.

    I disagree. I've tore up my share of stuff and still have a job. Don't lie and/or try to cover up anything.

    I notice SEFL is building new terminals and has decent-looking equipment...they must be doing something right.

    Questions about road drivers at SEFL: 1) Assigned equipment? Permanently or "keep it for the entire trip"? 2) Does a driver have to specify fast turn, slow turn, or system assignment at time of hire? Can drivers choose between the three and if so, how often? Is mileage rate set or variable, as in "based on experience" or "time with company"? Thank you in advance to whomever can answer.
