    Great work environment with the opportunity for advancement if you work hard. Opportunities to also relocate also when positions become available at other terminals.

    Good place to learn car hauling. Drivers get to set their own work schedule, to a point.

    Management's favorite song is? I'll be watching you. - The Police.

    Advice to Management

    Not so much advice for management. Mainly because they would never take it. So basically i have a statement. Thank you for the paid training, I'm looking elsewhere to take my new skills. Very happy to be a car hauler. Thanks.
