    I just got hired as a Dockworker. I have orientation next week and start the following day. Working twilight shift. I have a military CDL which I will be going through the steps of converting over to a civilian version.

    In the meanwhile, what type of work will I be doing on the dock? Is there any particular department I should try to go to. Whats the good and the bad?

    I agree, try for the road job. Dockworkers normally unload the freight from the trailers. If you get your civilian CDL, you will be able to get on full-time.

    THE GOOD: It is a pretty easy job to get used to, and the part-time pay is great for what it is.

    THE BAD: When whoever loaded the trailer that you are unloading was an idiot.
