Does anyone work for Linfox New Zealand ?
Or know what their like to work for?
I'm in the process of phone interviews and driving assessments for them,
Im living in the uk and would appreciate any info anyone may have,
Its something we have been drawn into whilst looking into moving to Australia,
I'm a tanker driver by the way, Is there any other truckers over there thats moved from the uk?
cheers
Paddy

Hi Guys,

My OH is Tanker driver for Fluidex, carrying Dangerous goods, I have heard him mention Linfox, but I don't think we know anyone working for them, will ask him tomorrow.
Tanker drivers are paid well, as most truckers do here, you will put in hours for it though. OH is not on shift work, so he starts different times, finishes different times, so sometimes he has short days, makes us for the long ones,
If I can be of any more help, let me know.

Hi Marika 38
Do you earn enough as a tanker driver to live comfortably on?
And iv'e read about having to earn over $50.000 to apply for residency, whats the usual earnings for a tanker driver?
thanks

No sorry
Just like you but sent off e-mails instead of phoning to their's and other websites,
We just contacted as many as we could and had quite a few replies back with paddy having tanker skills they are really interested,
so its worth contacting as many as possible
Good luck

Hi steve
We had an e-mail last week saying they haven't forgotten us and sorry for keeping us waiting
They are at the moment looking into the best possible process for their uk applicants
but we're not really in any rush we've not really thought it all through yet,
I Don't feel that we have had enough info from them to decide straight off

I suppose that will depend on what they actually offer us and if its too good an offer to turn down
