The Wiers family are good people, Marc. Tom (hubby) and his family have known them for years. They started Dutch Maid in the late '70's with a few trucks, and have around 200 power units nowadays; trailers all reefer.

They are right up the road from us; 224 (main thoroughfare, out here in the country, haha!) in Willard, Ohio. Not sure who they run for anymore, customer wise, though. Some of their units are not the newest, per se, so....PRETRIP and POSTTRIP for sure. From what we know, good people, good company however! (Say hello to Luis for me, if he's still there!) << Trainer or T/C if you will.

Also; they are right around the corner from PAM and Decker.

Hope this works well for you, Marc. Elaborate how you came across this opportunity; wouldja?!?!? ;)

Best wishes, for sure~!!!

Thanks Annie. Read a bunch of online reviews. Most were great, rest largely suspect. Seems like they may have figured out what many companies have lately... investing in newer equipment makes sense. Doesn't seem like a lot of old stuff is hanging around much. Of course even new stuff breaks but the hope would be in a "family" atmosphere (as many commented) most drivers would "do the right thing" and inspect and report defects.

One can hope, anyway! But you are right, of course! No one but I can really look after what I need to do to be productive and safe. I think it's called "doing my job." (At least the job I've been trying to get/do/keep for about a year and a half now!

As for how I found Dutch Maid... I think they just showed up in a search I setup on a new-to-me trucking job search site. It was to find Yard Spotter jobs but pulled in all kinds of things.

So what I think I know is (despite the "slow-down" in trucking), companies are still actively recruiting and hiring. I have had multiple contacts from companies I had applied to previously, even JB Hunt (for whom I briefly trained). Many require experience though it can be as little as 90 or 120 days.

When mentors here say "apply everywhere" that is good advice. But I think to be more precise to need to look everywhere too. I get a lot of FB ads due to my searches. I get job listings due to saved searches (Panther, Dutch Maid), etc.. While things can change over time I have a list of "minimum experience requirements" I can check so I don't waste a lot of time with people who won't hire me now. I try to spend my time productively.

But that's just me!

Well, your state is 'only just a sin or 2 away' haha! (Like anyone knows that song.. ) I know that they are highly respected here in the Buckeye, and they have some outreach to your avenue.

I'd GO FOR IT.. for sure. THEY HAVE A GREAT NAME here in Ohio, JSYK...~!! Wish you well. Luis the TC will hook you up if you go that route; very personal.

BEST~~~! Annie
