    "Hit & Run" aka "Half Rate" is always advertising for drivers, even in a downed economy. Big Red trucks is about all they have to offer...that and a revolving door, easy in, easy out. Don't pack a lot of gear in your truck, the law of averages says you won't be there long!

    This was one of the companies I applied to when I decided to take myself out of retirement (well, truth be told, Mrs. RJ told me to get my butt out of the house and quit bugging her). I got 299 (second highest score ever) out of a possible 300 on the pretrip and written exam and passed the road test with flying colours. I was looking for a part time gig, maybe once a week to Calgary or Edmonton or a once a week team deal to Winnipeg or a twice a month team deal to Toronnna. I didn't hear from them for a couple of weeks so I phoned Calgary recruiting and was told (after 3 calls) that I didn't meet their requirements at that time and to reapply in 3 months. This reply to a driver that had at that time over 4 million miles accident free and over 40 years experience on both sides of the border. Go figure. I went back to a company that I had driven for off and on for the past 30 odd years and was welcomed with open arms and am still there, happy as a pig in you know what.

    I thought I had made a mistake until I realised that it was just an error.

    the big cost is all the paperwork needed to be done so can get to stay.lots of hoops to jump couple friends did they not regret cause got a better lifestyle than what had and they like it here. I work for a compony that has some tey do the take the load and shut up thing to me to. the miles are not as good as they were say 6month ago.the lengh of haul is less and as a result you make less money. spend more time waiting for a load and less time at home. moving to another compony not solve the problem be same their i am betting so i am going to try my best to stick it out wehen thing turn around hopefully wages ect do to.
