Is Wilson buying "sleepers"??? I would think that if they are starting up a truckload division that they would be.
It is my understanding that they are
Seems like they would take care of their loyal employees before investing in a new division.Whats it been,like 7 or 8 years since a raise,while insurance has steadily climbed???Thats pathetic.That was once a coveted job.Time for someone to step up and reward hard work and loyalty.

Hmmm,20+ year drivers dont even get bonuses...

Slap in the face to their loyal LTL drivers that havnt had a raise in 7 or 8 years.
have not seen you in awhile Double M, good to hear from you, hope you and the wife are doing great
I still haven't seen any Wilson OTR trucks around, are they running them in daycabs or something?

I guess you have to go to page
that was the old one they had, it was a lemon so they got rid of it, i was told last week they only have 1 right now too
They went all out..even got the big studio sleeper..lol
It would appear that the division didn't quite shake up the industry when the news broke about it. It would also appear that they are having quite a time locating qualified drivers interested in filling the positions.
At one time,getting qualified drivers to work there would not be a problem.When a company hasn't given a raise in 8 years,word gets out,and makes drivers a little eery of working there.
some are sleepers, some are daycab, some may be white in color
Doing good Bird. Everyone's fine here. Contemplating retirement, waiting to see what new bids may be. If I like , I may stay awhile, if not I may retire
