Big scott

I have a friend who is interested in coming onto with cfi. He will need a refresher course due to having a CDL but no recent experience. What steps would he have to take to come aboard and was wondering what the trucks come with (apu, inverter, or fridge). Not a deal breaker but due to having had a heart attack he has to worry about diet. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Having trouble deciding.

I was just using it as a metaphor. Never got shot at was just there with 2/6

Having trouble deciding.

It is 12 hr shifts with 30 min before for meeting before and after shifts. 6 days a week with no time off. If we were to get inspected the whole fleet would be put out of service. Poor maintenance program. I’m know I am probably just whining but I would rather be in Kuwait getting shot at and fixing people. Just tired

Having trouble deciding.

I am local right now, with commute time to get to work is about 85 hours each week. Work almost 7 days straight, I have been doing this for 1 1/2 years. I do not enjoy the job at all as it is very mundane. Ihave an opportunity to go back to regional and make some fantastic money. I am torn between the 2 opportunities. Yes I am home every night but that is for only 8 1/2 hours. If you were in my shoes what would you do. Thank you for any assistance.

I'm interested in more info on becoming a driver with Averitt Express on their dedicated Cracker Barrel account. I'd like to know if anyone knows anything about this company and what to expect. I spoke with a recruiter but I would much rather speak with a driver.

Averitt is a good company. I was with then for 2 years until recently getting a local job. Ask any questions and I maybe able to answer them.

I did work in supply division for Averitt, which crackle barrel is. They run reefers and do deliver to all of the crackle barrels in a region. You have one main dispatcher, but you run out of dc’s. Most of the people I have met are really nice and are in a hurry to get you out of there. I have been told the trailers are preloaded and you just have to drop and hook. Once you get to one of your delivery points, you will hand unload what you are delivering.

Furloughed from Sysco

One more thing. I can't imagine you'll be able to claim unemployment for long. Isn't a requirement for unemployment that you're actively seeking work? With a class A CDL (assuming its clean) I'm sure you wouldn't have a problem getting something else even if it pays less.

That is currently being waived in the bill that is in the house. If you are furloughed or laid off due to the virus then you are good.

Bump Dock Pay

I've heard the term used to mean "bumping" a trailer from one dock door to another. This could be even from one local warehouse to another. Once I did get a request: I was at one facility to deliver a load. My DM asked me to go to another place 1/2 mile away to get a repaired trailer and bring it to the main trailer yard. I made $50 for the 1/2 mile move.

Errol you are exactly correct. Once had to unhook from my trailer, move another trailer and put my trailer in the dock. That is an example of bump dock. I currently work for averitt.
