    Just curious what are the usual/normal start times for drivers across the country? Also, depending on that start time; what time do you finish for the day?

    8:40 start and I am usually off the clock by 5:15-5:30. 6 at the latest.

    MC4YOU2 Yep, not wearing brown anymore

    9 AM all week when I left. That's the latest they can push it here contractually. They can however establish one or two routes that start later, like noon even, IF there is a customer who needs that for an extra late pickup.

    In fact, they did try to start a satellite route at 9:30 that was about 40 miles from the center. But, the driver grieved it, and the start time was rolled back to 9AM. Since it became unprofitable to have him on the clock for an hour every day sitting around and waiting for his load to show up, they eventually pulled it back into the center and gave up on the satellite idea totally.
