    I'm currently a cover driver interested in going into feeders. I've been told by other employees that I cannot go into feeders because I'm 22 years old and not 26?? And I've also heard that I need 4 years of package car experience?... at this this point I have a year and a half. I find both of those reasons hard to believe but figured I'd ask..

    You don't need any "experience". All you need is desire and seniority. I'm not sure about he age minimum.

    Here you can get your 30 days in and be out driving feeders on day 31.

    Our local supplement states you must be 25 but it can be changed mutually which has been done. We've had a few guys come on who can't be much older than 21. Like others have said sign the list or ask HR.

    Feeder school is unpaid in my area. I've heard some pay it retroactively after getting CDL but not where I am.

    In New England , when you go to feeder school , usually on Saturdays , it's paid , but straight time , sounds like your just going out for your 80 hrs with a sup cuz you already have your license ,,, good for you& best of luck!
