Yea. It takes a little getting used to pulling 48 footers on some of those lots.
Mike, you are a far cry from a loser, I don't want to ever hear you say that again!!!
Welcome aboard Frankie!!! We have the best guys in the world on this board, lots of experience and information here, its great to have you here to add to the great mix we have here!!
Hey what's going on? I'm Noel...I came by this website by chance at the truckersreport browsing some threads about food service, so i immediate came over and found ton of info.
A lil about me I'm Florida born, New York (Rochester) raised, now living in North Carolina, before moving to NC I worked at Wegmans food distribution warehouse, one of the best jobs I ever had, even with the union, prior to that i worked in the hospital as surgical instrument tech since '99, fast fwd 2008 I got a job offer at a hospital here in Charlotte & weighed my options between ny & nc, nc won by a landslide better weather year round far less crime and now I'm closer BikeWeek
Stayed at the hospital 6 yrs but just wasn't making the money I did back home, so unlike the people I worked with I did something about it and decided to get my CDL, going otr I quickly found out it wasn't for me being that I have a 5 yr lil girl who constantly asked daddy when you coming home, so next up was Pepsi I loved it at Pepsi but just not for the 14& change I was making, left for miller/corona by far the hardest job I've ever done but I got a offer from sygma so I took it, I guess if I'm gonna work hard might as well get paid for it that's me in a eggshell
Noel I've been meaning to call you we've been busy at GFS and other things outside of work have been cracking.
No problem buddy
Well somehow I'm still Shuttlin' 3 years later. Wife and I just got back from a "mini-vacation" in Minneapolis. It's neat to have the cash to do something fun and the ability to take some time off.
We're facing a consolidation at some point since our parent company belatedly realized the've bought 3 OPCo's that are selling in the same territory. So I'm a little pessimistic about making 5 years.
Have thrown some groceries (usually when a route driver calls off). That's a butt kicker! Actually don't mind it that much other than I'm fat and slow. Feels kinda good to get the blood flowing a bit.
