I'm currently have my recruiter waiting on me to get my permit and the more I read on it the more I'm thinking the company may be on the verge of collapse. Would I be best to look elsewhere?

Just started with celadon 6 weeks ago, I knew their was a possibility of this happening because people have been saying it some time, but celadon was one of the few willing to take a chance in me.

So far things haven't changed for me , although i had time off in Idaho for the 25th which i requested a month ago and my DM kept sending me to the northeast, granted most reefer loads go there but yeah. Still sitting here due to an issue with load.

Miles are good when things run smoothly which is next to never for me , maybe because I'm bad at my job or just crap luck I don't know.

I've had pre loads in my pre load.

I'd just start and hope for the best, who knows maybe you will be able to collect unemployment if they go under.

Celadon is an amazing starter company because they won't baby you, hard brakes, over speed , out of route , they really don't care as long as you get the freight there in damaged , safely and legally

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.
