    I'm currently working in DFW, but the preloader to driver time frame is still only 1-1.5, 2 years max at my hub.

    Does anyone know what that kind of time frame would be for locations such as Los Angeles and the surrounding cities? I'm about 6 months into my seniority here, so I figured it's better I do all the researching into a possible transfer now rather than to wait much longer.

    Why, though?

    The question is 60% curiosity, 40% chance of actually attempting a transfer. The reasoning is just personal preference of which place i'd rather spend the rest of my life in.

    Stay in the free world. I work in the Los Angeles area. I can't wait to leave this god awful state when I retire.

    Took me a whole 4 months as a PTer before I got the call to go FT driving. Failed my 30 days on the first go-around, went back to working in the hub for a year, then passed my 30 the second time around.

    Sucks that I didn’t make it the first time, but the good thing is that year I had to wait before trying to go FT again counted towards my progression.

    You're gonna leave Texas for Los Angeles?

    Sound like you're management material to me. Sign up immediately.

    The wait is probably 6-7 years right now.
