How does this actually work? Do you really sit by the phone all day waiting on dispatch to call or do they normally call you in a certain time frame? I was just informed by a driver that at this particular hub, I'll probably be a coverage driver for the next 15 - 20 years. Lol WTH!!!!! I'm definitely having second thoughts after hearing that.

It's a full-time feeder position, but on call 24/7. I don't see how they hire or retain drivers with that deal. I can see being on call on your probation period or knowing you will have some type of schedule in a few months. Years of being on call 24/7 would get old fast!!!!
