Sounds like a long shot to me!

Honestly, I can't tell what it is that you're after. Can you be a little more specific - like maybe give us a little background, or maybe an actual question?

I want to know what its like to work for them, how orientation goes, what drug test, what the trucks are like. Basic questions about a company. They just aren't a Big company so I figured chances are small I would find answers here.

Yes, but they dont give you important things like what its like to deal with the office, what they complain about, things like that.

I've never considered those things important, and have found that I never have all these imagined issues with trucking companies that drivers are always throwing about in their quest for that "diamond in the rough" trucking job they are seeking.

If they are willing to hire you, and you want to work for them, then go for it. Get in there and show them how you like to take care of business. I promise you, every driver working for them with that approach is doing good and loving life.

A successful driver will focus on his contribution to the company and it's customers. What I've found to be true of the guys and gals out here who are never happy with their career is that their focus is on the company and how they think it is being operated or run.

Don't get caught in that trap!

Hill Brothers is located in Shepherdsville Kentucky. They have white prostars with bright blue signage on them. They are a flatbed company located very near my home. I'll ask a couple of the driver's when I go home this weekend.. there are 2 or 3 that park right by me for home time and generally we come in about the same time so I talk to them frequently.

TruckingTruth was founded by Brett Aquila (that's me!), a 15 year truck driving veteran, in January 2007. After 15 years on the road I wanted to help people understand the trucking industry and everything that came with the career and lifestyle of an over the road trucker. We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
