JB Hunt Family Dollar Account

Do you really enjoy doing intense physical labor?

We never recommend that job for rookies, because it's brutal on your body and fraught with really difficult backing scenarios. As an experienced driver you can probably handle the backing, but hand unloading roughly 80,000 pounds of merchandise (every week) in plastic bins stacked so high they sometimes fall on you, is a tough way to make a paycheck. The pay isn't commensurate with the work in my opinion.

They are selling it hard because they can't keep drivers doing it.

Yea i figured it was some crazy backing it being at family dollars. They are 48 foot trailers, i mean these furnature stores we go to are no picnic sometimes.

JB Hunt Family Dollar Account

Been running team to cali reefer. I unload furniture in cali for 12.50 now lol. JB pays 125.00 have up to 3 unloads a week, Not really worried about the unloading. And over all it pays more than what im doing now at least 5 grand more a year. And im over riding with people and over the whole produce. I havent committed yet its a big change for me and the family. Not sure if grass is greener or not.

Well I Did it!

I Did it i passed C1 in Indianapolis! did it 3 days shy of 3 weeks.. now a week at home then headed to the ozarks for Pam Transportation. i do have a few concerns. While i did pass the course and state testing i know there is much much more to learn about driving, handling the truck. I mean the first week was class room and last 2 weeks was driving and range. I had a some trouble learning to downshift in which i am still no expert at it. i did enough to pass i passed with 15 of 30 points which for the class was not bad. I know Pam has some testing for us Dock Backing etc.. 2 weeks in a empty truck is not a lot. I just hope i will be good enuff for Pam or at least the mentor understands that i am far far from an expert.
