So, I just got hired at ADP. I’m gonna start out in their Express Solutions non cdl box truck position. My question is, from anyone’s experience with them, regardless of what they tell me, am I expecting to not have much of a life outside of work on weekdays? My main concern is having 50/50 custody of younger children and really not interacting with them until the weekends.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Hi Rizzy, I understand your concern. I think this is something important to you that you need discuss with your company contact and really get a specific understanding about. I never heard about this company until this past week in the northeast. Every time I see the name, I can’t help but think about Car Talk on PBS where they said they got their legal advice from Duie , Cheatum and Howe.

I agree with Jeremy on this. Even driving a box truck Mon-Fri requires all of your attention and you won't have the time or ability to think about what the kids are doing. A. Duie Pyle or any other good company out here deserves your full attention while driving and delivering freight. I personally would opt for the weekend Dad because you can devote the full time to the children and gain more quality time then trying to balance them both.
