    I've seen Central is back to pulling turnpike doubles. How much are they paying the drivers extra to pull those? I've only seen a handful of them broken down on the road so far lol

    They can't keep drivers so they don't have freight moving. That's the only way they can move their freight is to have 1 guy pull 2. I wouldn't doubt if they were doing it illegally. No one will work for them. I mean they are paying you 500 bucks if you fulfill your 2 week notice. Paying you to quit.

    I think your posting on the wrong thread jm1989. You are looking for the one that says Detroit TM gets an whooping from driver. I heard that was you

    you must be a former vitran driver who got the pay raise when going to c.t. and then got that additional dollar. i highly doubt you're making that much going through the ranks at c.t., unless you work sat too and crunch that overtime into the hours you worked for the week and came up with that figure.

    No had enough I got a way from the c-t circus a year ago I lost a lot personal days weeks vacation and over time and they disrespected vitran drivers let them go lost all the freight all then want them to come back and start as a new employee central transport has always been a joke in charleston wv as soon a the customer's found out they drop CT vitran they will tell you that the only reason that they pick up at there business in because some one else is paying the bill an I laugh at CT because there driving vitran tractor and pulling pjax trailers you hardly see a yellow deaf trap on the road in wv
