Pepsi, coke, or Dr Pepper. Daytona beach

I’m in the process of relocating to Daytona beach Florida (yeah I know it’s a sinkhole for trucking) in my area are all three beverage company’s hiring drivers. I’m just trying to see who has an inside scoop on which is going to be better for pay and benefit's, as well if any one of them is union and what the hours are like. Trying to be specific to that location in Daytona.

Also, before anyone comes out and says it’s back breaking work you should stay away. I’m 20 years old in the garbage industry right now and I can confidently say that hard work does not scare me. I run all day long doing thousands of stops a week from dawn till dusk and I love it. Just got my license and am looking to get some experience on my record.

Need advice, does this offer sound normal?

Hello from Joliet!

Yes, it is semi normal. There are a lot of trucking companies that use a outdated law. It allows them not to pay overtime.

What sort of work will you be doing out of curiosity?

Most likely normal dry van runs. Possibly some flatbed and box truck driving as well. Just all within the state. And in cities which I’m not thrilled about.

Need advice, does this offer sound normal?

So I received a phone call today from the company I've been trying to get on with. This is my first job as a driver. In my situation I have to be local, not thrilled about it, but I have obligations that require me home every night throughout the week. I understand that this isn't the best choice for a new driver, however its what I'm going to do.

I'm curious to see if the offer they made sounds fishy to any of you vets out there. I live in IL, and I'm 20 so I cant go out of state for another year. I was told I'd be running 55-60 hours a week Monday to Friday at 20 an hour. I asked him (The recruiter) if that was over time paid and he said no to my surprise. By no means a deal breaker, but still was wondering if that was normal. It's a smaller family owned company, and honestly 20 an hour is the most money I've ever made in my life. He also said once I turned 21 the pay would go up, to a number that sounded much better, and he claims home every weekend. .So It seems okay to me...any thoughts?

If I'm leaving out info I apologize, just ask and I'll do my best. Thank you!

Hazmat, endorsements, CDL/License renewal...HELP

Are you already employed with a CDL? The reason I ask is a lot of Florida is a dead zone both for hiring and for freight coming out of the state.

No sir. Hopefully getting my first job soon. Just wanting to move to Florida in the future.

Hazmat, endorsements, CDL/License renewal...HELP

Stupid questions incoming. But I need some help from my current hazmat holders. I've been looking at the different endorsements to get, and I want to get tanker, and hazmat. Im seeing that I need an H endorsement, and a N for tankers. However whats tripping me up is this X endorsement. Does it mean I don't have to take the tanker or hazmat tests? Can I just apply and test for that one separately? Or am I going to have to get each endorsement separately.

I'm looking to move to Florida in the next year, and they don't except out of state hazmat, so I'm going to wait to get it. I'll be moving in the next year so it'd be pointless. But if there are other endorsements I can get now to save time I want to do that.

Also, renewing cdl. I live in IL (Yay...sarcastically) I just got my CDL last week. My actual drivers license expires in august. That means my cdl will expire too right? So when I go to renew my license, do I tell them I want to renew my cdl as well? Or is there a different process for that?

Thanks in advance for the advice!
