So it’s hArd to believe, but I’ve been doing this for almost a year now. I started with Millis. While I’ve learned a lot and been happy, I’m looking for something where I can get more options. I’m looking at Crete as a short list. I’d get a pretty substantial raise, and from the numerous drivers I’ve spoken with, the miles are there and they seems to be a company that treats employees well. Since millis got bought out by heartland (before I started) I’ve heard a lot of changes, none that have really affected me, other than losing my safety bonus for a year because i tapped a stop sign. $0 in damage, but I had my speed dropped to 62 mph and lost the quarterly and annual bonus. Not cool, but it happened my first week solo, so I’m used to it now. Anyway, thoughts on Crete? Anyone?

Good place to drive. I prefer it significantly over that last place I wasted four months at, and make nearly double the income each month.

I’ve been at Crete for nearly two years now, and I’m loving it, making some very good money and average around 2500-3000 miles a week running off recap hours.
