    It can reasonably be assumed that if they screw you once then, yes, they will screw you again.

    Driving is a whole different animal. If you have a good knowledge of the city you're in- then you should be ahead of the curve.

    They say the hardest part about cover driving is not knowing the routes and the extended hours that come with this issue.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Only difference is they kick your ass for more hours as a driver.

    I'll take 9 hours of driving a route over 5-6 hours of getting slammed on preload any day of the week. Many drivers at my center don't understand as they went full time before the package weight limit was raised to 150 and benefits took a year to kick in.

    Worst part of temp driving is being sent out blind.

    You can ask for the help with the over weights.

    I agree with the driving over pre load. Yes the drivers work very hard too and get screwed over BUT they are compensated very well for all of this.

    We are well-compensated as this is our career, not a PT job.

    I know what you mean. The hardest part is getting up at 2am for preload again when youve been driving most of the week..

    I found an old pic of my center manager beating my ass after my first day driving.

    Not entirely true as far as full timers getting :censored2: beat for more hours. I remember many a times working 13-14 hours part timing it, 6 hours preload during october-january or february and 7-8 hours delivering after preload.

    Also, more and more part timers are making it a career for everyones got their own reasons to stay part time.

    And, preload in my opinion CAN be way more tough on the body than delivering can and at least during peak drivers get to use helpers!

    Niether job is easy though i think thats been very very established.... Especially as time goes on it gets harder and harder with more and more work along the way....
