I don't know too much about them, but I did talk to a recruiter. I decided that for me (and this is JUST me) it wasn't a good fit because they have no formal training other then (if I remember correctly) a 10 day orientation/classroom/group driving session.

Thanks Syster: I appreciate the comeback. For me, since I left trucking about 20 years ago and had over-the-roaded for 8 years, having a company that just gets me acquainted with their methods, then just let me get out there and run the loads, would seem to be the best. It's not going to take me long to get back in the swing of things. We had an RV a few years ago and always did my trip planning just like I was doing it in trucking. And for knowing where to drive a large vehicle I've always used the Motor Carriers Road Atlas rather than the smaller versions. It's just got a whole lot more information that comes in handy. And those truck stop and interstate guides sure come in handy when you need to park a big vehicle and get some food. I'm looking forward to getting back into all of this. Off the road jobs have been rather boring. Seeing new scenery everyday is going to be great! Thanks again.
