    I took the drivers test passed, DOT passed now waiting on call when to take classroom training. I want to clarify that I was told a pt driver will make $11hr if so how many hrs a day will you work and how hrs a week can you put in. Will a pt driver eventually lead to full time driver.

    I am being hired as a full time driver starting at $18 something? Is the pay different because of ft or pt position?

    Well @yellowhammer, it sounds like you're talking about a "part-time air driver" job.
    • Starting pay rate is $12.50
    • Seniority rate $13.50 (typically after 6 weeks)
    • 1 year rate $14
    • 18 month rate $14.50
    • 24 month=top rate=currently $26.84
    Workday is 3 hours minimum. Workweek is 5 or 6 days, may/might not be consecutive; for example, work Monday, off Tuesday, work Wednesday thru Saturday.

    As far as leading to a full-time driver job, opportunities for that goes by seniority; the experience as a part-time driver would probably help greatly when it comes to actually qualifying for it.

    I passed the drivers test and DOT the written test is next. I was told I had to pass with an 85 score. Was given study material prior to taking class do I need to studying word for word its hard to remember word for word. What do I need to study in order to pass this class/test. Do I need to recite everything on test when asked or is it multiple choose question. Need help on passing test to get pt drivers job.
