Hates all of you
update been here 4 years 5 months. dont know what to do, had an interview today running produce upper midwest ND,SD,MN,WI northern IL (champagne and north), the UP, thunder bay over to Regina,SK and eastern mt and eastern NE. couple things im considering this for.
1. our health insurance has gone through the roof in the last 2 years to the tune of 960/month for the family use to be around 425. this new job would cover 100% of medical cost
2. the company im with now puts up to 5% match into the 401k, the company i interviewed with puts 10,000 in a year in regardless.
3. ive pretty much topped out where im at pay wise 87K-ish however the(AGI) is closer to 70k. the company I interviewed with starts out at 100K (26.74 per hour and $.6366 per mile) union scale start out at top).

anybody have any advise? I like where im at,have a good owner and great terminal manager however im a money hungry guy. wife currently stays home with the 3 kids(5,2,7months) obviously 30k gross can go a long way, yes i know only a fool trades his life for money.
Stay home and watch your kids grow up.

You like where yer at....that counts for a lot. That money you're hungry for, will .... A. Never be enough and B. Be long gone, as will your kids that you didn't get to see grow up.


How the hell did you get kids 5/2/7 months?

And you will have missed the best years of your kids as life.

Used to think the same thing. Never got to watch my kids take their first steps were there first day of school.


Just sharing lessons learned and looking back.
