Will my DOT medical be denied?

Yeah, omitting this information on a federal form is a felony perjury issue. Honesty is always best when dealing with these physical exams and the questions they ask.

Well I'll just go off of what you said and not worry about it!

Will my DOT medical be denied?

If it doesn't make you answer yes to any of the questions on the DOT questionnaire or create health issues while behind the wheel then why the heck would you even tell them?

I never paid attention much besides remembering a form: "please list any medications you have taken in the last year" or whatever and I dont want to be caught lying

Will my DOT medical be denied?

Hey guys, it's been a long time since I've used this site! I'm already passed my 4 year mark of having my cdl and still am huffing groceries uphill through the snow and the rain both ways.

I've had a lot change in my life since I was 21, moved 3 separate times across the country each time, but the last change is probably the biggest.

Because I'm 25, every time I've gotten my DOT medical it was a painless "select no on every box" and every medical history free response was blank.

About 3 months ago I finally bit the bullet I've been wanting for over 10 years and got a prescription for estrogen and I'm wondering if, in a years time, they deny people a new card because of that saying horomones are dangerous or something. If you go to one place and they say no to your prescription, can you go to another until you find a doctor who will approve you or is one denial from anyone game over.

I have about 10 months left on mine, and I was kind of freaked out a week ago when one of our drivers said the doctor he was sent to by the company tried to deny him for a medication he was on for the last 9 years and had to go somewhere else to get a 2-year. Thanks!

Probably freaking out over nothing, but I've always been like that.

Paths To Making GOOD money as a truck driver?

Since we're doing this, I've labled each week as a 5 or 6 day. At every week with 5, I could've chosen 6 and that would've increased the gross by 1-1.5k. And even then there were probably opportunities every day to get more hours.

It's a me problem for not wanting to work more, but then again I don't want to work more! rofl-2.gif

Website ranks carriers by driver pay - Sysco at the top

I have moved out of Miami and am back in the same original region I was at for Sysco.

Right now this is temporary for the whole summer season, and once its over we will go back to 18-2500/wk like normal. (Though working your off day is still DT)

I only work like 65 hours/6days which is amazing for this kind of work where on the 6th day you'd have like 5 hours left and be forced to do whatever to deliver that didn't involve driving a cmv so you'd get 75-80 for the week.

The most I've gotten here was 74 hours and that was due to warehouse waiting, not actual work.

Even with those kind of numbers I still don’t know if I’d be able to do it. Certainly have my respect.

I’m though curious though yuuyo how many stops are you cranking out on that kind of money?

Us foods works you way less than sysco so Im getting like 8-12 a day; most individual stops I've seen are like 14. It's really hard on one route to take more than 10-11 hours to complete it whereas sysco will try to push you past 14 if you don't work like a maniac.

If I see 18 stops then you end up having 3-4 at the same location like 3 times so you really only get like 12.

Yeah, two checks.

Yawns...

Ok I will give you the full list when I get home but I did mention a huge range with the descrepancy between 5/6 days

But you probably still won't be satisfied with that attitude

Yuuyo, this is impressive! How many hours do you put in daily, and at what rate? US Foods is hiring in my area, offering $30. Even working 70 hours with overtime after 40, it is still 40*30+30*45=2,550. What is your trick to almost double it?

If you work 6 days your dayoff is dt, thur/fri is dt, and sat is triple time regardless according to current union lou

If I work 5 days I gross around 2500-2800 because I work sat

Sysco is much more physical than the other jobs and the speed you unload directly affects your pay. Unloading 300 cases into 1 stop you're able to earn a higher wage because you're not wasting time touching other stops cases trying to find cases coming off right now

I thought Sysco was hourly, in which case the speed you unload affects your pay, but in the opposite direction you're thinking of. I'm hourly, and make more on a three stop run than a single drop, simply because it takes me longer. It's honestly my biggest gripe working an hourly job, the guys milking it make more than the hustlers.

I could be wrong about their pay structure though, where's our Sysco guy?

Yeah, where IS Yuuyo Y. btw???

He stopped back after he got furloughed, then... blip. Crickets. Somebody else worked for them for awhile, years ago...Heavy C, I think.

I'm alive; I still work at Sysco except 2000 miles away in another state

Update: I have been grossing between 3000-4500$/wk at US foods for the last few months

US foods is so much better than Sysco

For my first year local it was about $81,000

I wouldn't recommend learning how to drive at this company though like I did.

Hows the freight?

The loads may have slowed down in certain niche markets such as Food Service (Sysco) but in general the industry is thriving. One thing hasn't changed though. You need to be performing to get the good loads. Plenty of work out there, and I don't see it changing any time soon.

Oh man no they haven't from the driver's perspective. More stops, more cases, less routes. If you are working you're getting near 70.

8 Hour Rule Change

I never have to DOT break again if I don't want to since it's guaranteed at least ONE of my stops for the day will take at least 30 minutes.

Now I can sit for a whole hour when my route is done if I want.

That's a great change for us to give some flexibility. The rule changed to a 30 min break after 8 hours of actual DRIVE time, vs. 8 hours of the 14 hour clock.

Nothing changed with the 14 hour clock as far as I know.

iirc it changed where onduty satisfies the break.
