Local is trip pay? I have a call-back tomorrow. If that's the case, I won't be green. I won't work for trip pay around the city. I'm too old to be sitting in traffic for free.

Congrats to all jevic drivers finding quick employment, we had a few join us awhile back when they seen everything going bad with Jevic. I think we are hiring two more from Jevic.From my previous experience with dedicated carriers, you need to remember that those contracts go up for bid every 3 to 5 years and someday someone will underbid Cowan to get the business.I loss 2 jobs due to that.Good luck with everything and drive safe
