    your best chance of being kept after peak is to go to the gould ave in newark or to the staten island bldg.(its in our district even though its ny). staten island is pretty good. look out for big hair and guidos in irocs :happy-very:

    Im in NJ & I understand that the management teams in Edison treat their employees like poop. I've heard rumors that they curse, yell & scream on a regular basis to their union members. This is all rumors of course. I used to work there in the sort isle about 10 years ago & it wasnt that bad but the Div manager was a total a-hole. We had a couple of sups there though that were really good guys. Bob Buckaloo( not sure of spelling) was a great guy though I hear he got moved to staten island. It was a pretty fun time working in sort 1 there. It was me & 1 other white guy so of course we got picked on a lot but in a fun way. I can remember when the other white guy turned 21 & all the brothers took us out to a nudie bar in the middle of Irvington called the Brown Derby, no ID's required, girls in the back doing things you've only seen in porno flicks & the cops would walk in every 20min or so to make sure the prostitution was kept to a minimum. Good times..... good times :)

    Yeah I would have to agree the best NJ hub/center would have to be the one in South Dakota or Iowa. LMAO!

    But your not in NJ anymore.....lol. Trust me the cost of living has sky rocketed to the point of craziness! People are moving out of NJ at a rate of 9000/ month if that tells you anything.

    There are over a million homes in fore-closure if that says anymore..the average home in NJ is roughly about 5-600K

    Ha Ha Ha. Why do you think i moved out in the first place. I dont see how anyone could afford to live there anymore. Its only been two years since i moved out. I do miss it. Originally I looked into the Mt. olive center before when I first got out of school. Tha is a very nice center, new, and right off of 80 and 46. Easy to get to. Storm where in Jersey are you?

    Na, I hate Staten Island you cant even drive thru the streets there. Too congested. Thanks.

    why Lakewood?
    from Old Bridge the drive is to long to Lakewood, Tinton Falls, Edison and Bound Brook are closer.

    I worked one day in Staten Island when I was trying to make book. I never want to go back. 95% of the load I had was non driver release.
