Perenial CDL Opening?

I'd be remiss if I didn't post about this local Frederick Company who has a Permanent Help Wanted Ad in the local newspaper. Actually these people are right across the street from my new home on New Design Rd:

And just North and West of Frederick Maryland here's another perennial always need help Permanent Help Wanted for CDL Truck Drivers ad I always see:

D.M. Bowman

Drivers CDL-A Solo Drivers for Regional Positions $5,000 Sign-On Bonus for Teams More pay if you have HazMat Endorsement. D M Bowman Inc.


Now I've always wondered if there was something wrong with a company that, for some reason, couldn't seem to keep a driver happy...

With Bowman and Hahn Transportation, I believe the reason they seem to always need help is because of geography. There isn't any public transportation where they're located, and often you've got to be at work at 3:00AM or something similar.

Ditto for Mattress Warehouse, the bus doesn't come down the road that far...

Not sure what Mattress Warehouse is paying, perhaps that is why they always need help? I'll apply there just to find out and report back here.

I know Hahn pays $16 per hour for bulk tankers (dry cement tankers), and Hahn pays $19 per hour for gasoline drivers with a little extra for night differential.

I always preferred to deliver gas at night.. wanted the streets and highways to myself and wanted the gas station to be empty when I got there:)

I've heard that the amount of work Bowman has goes up and down, sometimes Bowman can get a decent paying contract to haul different materials and sometimes it's slim pickings.

With fuel prices at the lowest levels in a very long time I believe hauling contracts will increase. If it costs too much to get it there, and the profit isn't there to cover the costs the frieght will just have to sit there until the economics change. That is NOT true for:
  • Food,

  • Trash

  • Those two items will get trucked no matter what the economy is doing.

    Speaking of trash... there is residential trash, sanitary trash (a euphemism for the stinky crap), construction trash (rubble), municipal trash.

    This is the municipal variety, these guys haul the trash OUT of Frederick's Landfill. Apparently, some trash gets buried and some gets hauled out. This picture is from behind Costco at the Travelodge.

    Travelodge is one of the few places in Frederick where a big rig can get parked. If you're staying at the Travelodge (upwards of $50 a night) you can park for free.

    Truck drivers usually get discounts at hotels, we give keep them busy!
    If you're not staying there, Travelodge will still let you park a tractor and trailer for a monthly fee. Last time I asked (I was driving for Superior Carriers at the time) the fee was $100 month. I'll have to inquire if that's gone up or down.

    That's all I have today.
    see ya
