    Maybe if Conway grew a little they could quit gripping on weighing and measuring every piece of freight they pick up to try to milk a few more pennies out of their current customers.

    Lol the Holland terminal in my area is a joke. Get hired on and you might be lucky enough to work 2 or 3 days a week, driving a 14 year old Sterling. Then after a couple months of that, you'll get laid off. And if you go work for a non-union carrier, forget about the snot-noses ever hiring you back.

    Yeah, great gig Wong... NOT

    After years of working at the way, and then likely getting fired. yeah. He was probably not in a happy place.

    I am honestly shocked there has never been a violent incident. With the way these people talk and act WHILE they HAVE their jobs.

    Well the terminal near me sure as hell isn't swamped. And I'll take my 3 year old Freightliner with the camera over that junk manbeater Sterling any day. Those things were crap even when they were brand new.

    We have a few ex-Holland guys at my barn that got laid off and found work at non-union companies for the time being. Then Holland wouldn't hire them back because they worked non-union. What a bunch of crybaby BS.

    Complete lie. If they are laid off, which I dont believe in the first place, Holland would HAVE to take them back. Looks like you are the one full of BS

    Three separate guys from two separate terminals and they all have the same story. Maybe they quit and wanted to come back, who knows. Don't really care if it's true or not as I have no intention of ever working for them just based on the quality of the terminal in question.

    Amen brother!!! I hope for one of the soon to be retired 04 wore out sterlings we have because they do not have cameras. I hate the Cameras. Hate Hate Hate Hate Hate Hate. Every bump you hit you look at it to see what they might have busted you doing, It is barley even possible to do your job and not be breaking one of the 1500 rules they have. Next time I get called in I m just gona say where do i sign I gotta go.

    Conway where I am has lots of past union drivers including myself, At least 2 from CF and maybe 5 or 6 from Holland, I think most of the former Holland drivers are sad they didnt go back when they had the chance. The Holland in my town needs city and line right now.
