I have been working at New Penn Motor Express full-time (More than 10 years)
The money you can make is enough for you to have a decent living. Top rate as of now is $21.97. Rarely will they tell you to go home once they see you are comfortable with the job and they can tell you know what you are doing. The job is not difficult. Especially if you have worked on a trucking dock before.
The company is union master freight and was bought out by Yellow freight a few years ago. Yellow went through the contract and changed what they wanted to change. 15% of our wages were taken along with our pension. There are no specific guidelines addressing some major issues. There is no mention of them in the contract so they do what they want. I worked at 3 other union jobs before New Penn. This is by far the weakest union I have ever seen or heard of. Almost non-existent. If you are a driver you will be working the dock for awhile before sent out on city runs. You will be on call and have no set time. They have to give you 10 hours off after you clock out. They will call at times, after you've had 8 hours off to give you a 2 hour notice to be at work. There are a few back stabbers too. Not only co. workers but Supervisors as well. Finally as I mentioned. Yellow Freight bought New Penn. 2016 is a new contract year. I see Yellow taking more than they already have. There is no trucking company I am aware of that Yellow eventually closed once they were bought.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at New Penn Motor Express (Camp Hill, PA) in January 2014.
Submitted application online, Phone interview with corporate HR, and 2 interviews with manager and district manager, took 2 months plus from offer until the first day of work, which was ridiculous. Very straight forward questions. There is a drug test (urine) and a background check post offer. The process is too involved and takes way too long compared to industry standards.
Negotiation isn't really possible, especially with vacation.
