If they are giving you an LMO take it,work for them til you get your PR then you can go work for another company .

Lol still here and got through a crazy second winter! DJ's was good for me, got a brand new volvo after 6 months, started on hoppers then did tankers for 6 months....but, for being away all week in all weathers I just did not feel I was being adequately compensated. I do not want to diss them as I got great experience with them but it is very tough as a company driver to make a living, especially starting from scratch as we did. A couple of guys have come over and had to go back as they could not bank enough to survive!
However, some owner ops are doing very well!! So, Im quietly looking at going o/o. In the meantime, I got a city job hauling sand and gravel....better pay and home every night.....a no brainer for me!! PR is just around the corner=options! Hope your well and looking forward to BBQ season

My take on that is let them go. I'll catch them up at the next drop. I drive at my pace ( which is not hanging about ) but if someone wants to go. quicker then come on by. Btw flying out June 2nd :-)))

not much good on trans canada in west ON ..its single track wae overtaking lanes ..or three wide when they want.
my advise is take the job come over get licence and if its bad move to another lmo job,easier when over here.
hope it goes well though.jimmy.
