    Freight is slow everywhere right now. Check just about any forum on the boards and you confirm that. Give it time, if you have it, the freight will soon start to flow gain .... hopefully soon after the elections.

    Cookie, anyone coming into the freight business, especially now a days and even more especially in a union carrier must be patient if they expect to make it a permenent position.

    Historically making the list at a union carrier can take months if not years depending on your location.

    Hang in there, and you'll be good.

    yo cookie, i work in Maspeth and what they told you is true, it is slow but our terminal is gets busy at the snap of the fingers. i know a couple of casuals and right now they're getting 3-4 days a week. with the holidays coming we will get extremely busy and those casuals will be working a full week for sure. good luck.
