Sure do, pay starts at 53,000 per year plus 125 a day per diem (rumor is it's going up to 175 or 200). Company truck that you pretty much use as your own on your days off minus taking vacations. You can pull a camper and take your family with you if you wish also. It's a good gig, if you stay in decent hotels and watch what you eat you can bank off of the per diem, thats what most of us do anyway. It's a great company that offers excellent insurance, Christmas bonus and much more. I love working here, we have excellent leaders and we're rewarded for our hard work. Hows the process going for you? It's pretty similar to that of the railroads. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
