Nope. Not blue. It's not a mega company. They say the have 235 trucks.... Been here about 2 months, Im still not sure how many are actually on the road... These trucks are mid 2000 to 2010 Freightliner Columbia gliders. From the trucks I have seen all are near if not over 1 million miles.

Who is blue? Werner?

I lied, it's not red... It's a faded army green color.

Yeah, it's green. I say a dark green. Still kinda new on how good of company it is to work for. The company is based close to home, and they laid out pretty well on their recruitment flyer how they pay. They do get me home every week so I'm not setting somewhere for 34 hour restarts.

I'm loving not having a credit card bill over 2500 a month cause I'm not paying for the fuel anymore.

Yea, I was reading through their stuff. You get a lot of the benefits of a larger carrier while still being in a smaller pool of drivers. It's cool that they run a 5/2 split like that allowing more "planned" time off. The 401k match would surely be something to look at using to your benefit for sure too.
The one thing I would question is their per diem offer, since as a company man, you're not eligible for the write off.

Like I said being new, there are things still coming up, the 401k and health benefits don't come in for another month. After 2 months of being solo driver. I sent 3 weeks with trainer. It wasn't so much about driving, more about what to do at stops and how to operate the computer dispatch system.

Overall I believe it will be better pay than pulling the campers. Run about half the miles, but it's still a 60 hour week.

Go local for an LTL company. A few less hours and more money. Home every night. Good benefits and Hourly pay. No living in a truck. No dirty truck stop showers.

This company has it's own showers and fuel pumps at terminals. I like not having to driving home every day after work. I sleep better in the truck than at home.

Where's my prize lol
Malibu on here called me out on Facebook saying it was poor business sense to calculate my fuel at $2.75 since that was using my discount, just not all of it. Look who's laughing now 🤣
