    How long do you have to be a TCD driver to keep your payrate when going full-time? I know tcd driver payrate is 85% of top pay of full-time drivers and i would love to keep my payrate. Its About $10 extra an hour. Thanks in advance.

    I thought it was after you pass your 30 days. I could be wrong though. Im TCD in south as well so im hoping im already locked in when i go fulltime.

    You'd be red circle at whatever rate you are at, if it is more than starting driver rate, until the driver rate surpasses your current rate.

    I went from tcd to fulltime. After your 30 day qualifying and you obtain seniority you will be locked in.

    Big hub. They have 4 centers in there. I know people who drive out of richardson center and Plano center

    And yes, after 30 days as a tcd you will not go down in rate when going full time

    You guys suck at loading trailers. Every single trailer from Mesquite that we get is built to only 3/4 of the max height and 1 of every 10 packages requires tape because they are all thrown in. Irregs and hazmats above shoulder height. Anarchy...

    i agree. I pick off and everytime i get an open package i give it to the clerks. We have horrible trainers so that's the main cause of trailers loaded incorrectly.

    Sounds about right. I heard management isn't very great over there right now. Anyways, best of luck to you!

    Started working at Mesquite TX hub. Yes there is a lot of trailers that go 3/4 empty. Though there's a lot of guys who try hard. I just had my picture taken cause my walls were stacked to the top. Hoping to become a driver. Any advises on that?

    I can already tell that you are not a smart TCD driver.
