As BadGas said, the lower 10% in seniority don't get to bid, they are either assigned to routes or become swing drivers by default. The bidding is done by seniority. After 19.6 years as a driver I an currently 28 ( I think) on the sen, list, not many decnet routes left by the time it's my turn to bid so I keep being #2 on the swing driver list. I usually get a pretty good run that way.Will you get your own route when you get hired on FT pkg driver? or do you have to wait years to get your own route? how does it work?
