My hub has so many cover drivers who start at $30 and they get 50 hrs+. Those are suppose to be part time drivers. That's who I believe the company is...

    Preload to Small Sort/Load/Unload.

    Update time: My full time supervisor told me he'd let me have the opportunity to switch from Preload to Sort/Unload/Loading Trailers. Loading is a bit weird for me but I'll get used to it. Unload and sort are cake. Where can I go from here though? Pt sort supervisor? What are my options for...

If so, guess that's on...
