    Never work for a company that advertises on craigslist and never work for a company who's websites main page is dedicated to driver recruitment instead of customer service.

    No worries mate.
    Merely a tried and true product in new packaging!
    Corporations use this marketing ploy to draw in younger generations to their products or services.

    ABF advertises on Craig's List. Never work for a company that refuses to move into the next century when it arrives.

    Never work for a company that....I'd rather just meet up with one of their drivers and share the driving duties to the home terminal. Last time I did that I wound up team driving for two weeks before I got there. But alas, I am showing my age again.

    If you can't get in a union company, the best ones to drive for are the ones that haul their own product. All 3rd party non-union carriers SUCK.

    I'm serious. Whenever I feel like I want to quit my current job, I start calling recruiters. I usually feel better about my job after listening to them talk about their company.

    I came real close to hauling American Ironhorse Motorcycles......They went out of business about six months later. I think my next driving job should be repoing trucks for American Cold Iron. Nah, I don't have the heart to do that anymore.

    Salary...Depends on the Jimi Hendrix Experience. We pay weekly, very weakly!
