    No. It's a courier job requiring you to work splits. You would either work on AM side splitting to PM or vice versa. If you want to have a life during the week, don't take it.

    I don't know if this is the same job but locally there is an Express driver who starts around 2pm, does some delivering and pickups, goes back to the station and then drives the trailer over to Burlington.

    swing may not be shift? It could be swing driver covering multiple rtes. All our swings here are cdl c /haz

    If I had a CDL with Haz endorsement, I'd be driving for some oil rigging or fracking sand company. That's where the money is!
     
  6. UPS freight lost a ton of drivers to the oil companies. More money, less stress

    Think of all the stories you could (make up) tell while working there. :)

    Upstate, I couldnt make a story up if I tried. Never did well in school when it came to "creative writing." I'm a terrible liar, just ask my wife!

    It's not a tractor trailer job. It's a courier job. Big you're looking for a tractor trailer job, look for RTD, ramp transport driver. That's assuming you're talking about Express.

    Do yourself a favour and avoid FedEx entirely if you can. Try to get on with UPS.

    congrats on "get the big picture"

    hey, how about custom critical? but that's run by subcontractors... so the pay may be a deterrent ~ nevermind

    The transportation industry sucks as a whole, regardless. If you're young and masochistic and really want to do this sort of crap, then yes - go Brown.

    But really, the whole biz is best left avoided.

    (OTR - ughhhh...perhaps once upon a time when a guy could run hard for several years, make a killing and then retire or do something else. But these days OTR is just a drudgery with too many rules and regs and not nearly enough compensation for the [lack of] life you have.)
