It really is a great place to work. They treat us very well.

They just posted his birthday picture.

That is amazing that he has lived such a long life. In the picture in that link he looks to be about 80. To make it to 109 is really incredible. He sounds like a great guy. It's no wonder all our members who work at H O Wolding have been so happy with their jobs.

Lol. I do like the blue. I just wish there was a Blue Beacon near me so I could wash it more often.

We do haul a lot of paper, for sure.

I really hope you guys get to hang onto the blue trucks, love seeing them at paper places we go to. That awful turd brown has to be depressing.

The good news is, we're not getting the "Gold" trucks that Bison runs in Canada. Bad news, we're getting white trucks so unfortunately, the blue will be going away in the coming years, They're just now getting rid of the last of the old-style Cascadias from 2017 and early 2018 so I think we'll be seeing the blue trucks for at least the next 3 to 4 years

Howdy, Connor!

Welcome to Trucking Truth, and PLEASE, tell us more! LoL .... Do you drive OTR for Wolding? What are your common lanes? Do you do cross border accounts? We really haven't heard much since this was posted quite some time ago.

Thanks for joining, keep us in the loop!!

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

No overtime. I run very close to my 70 every week I’m out.

Great company to work for so far. There are changes coming as we switch over to Bison USA though I assume. But definitely a good place to get in a years experience at minimum.

Grumpy...Local in KC now for a year doing intermodel. Love it though the crappy chassis are a challenge at times. Hope all is well with you brother..don't miss the Winter weather. My company pays me not to drive when they deem it too dangerous. Be safe Grumpy.

I’m doing good.

I’m in WI now getting my truck serviced.

One of the changes is that now they want the hourly drivers to punch in and out of a time clock app on their phone.

I was ready to find a new job because they told me it had to mirror my Qualcomm. I might have 15 to 20 off duty breaks a day, as I log every stop even for a minute or two to use the bathroom. No way I was going to punch in and out that many times. Spoke with HR and they said no just breaks of 30 minutes or so. So I ended up with 4 extra hours in 4 days. I guess I’ll take a pay raise to punch a clock. Lol

Qualcomm:

Omnitracs (a.k.a. Qualcomm) is a satellite-based messaging system with built-in GPS capabilities built by Qualcomm. It has a small computer screen and keyboard and is tied into the truck’s computer. It allows trucking companies to track where the driver is at, monitor the truck, and send and receive messages with the driver – similar to email.
