Is any one here familiar with “hiking” jobs?

The local Penske is hiring part time hikers to move trucks in between locations. 0-25hrs a week.

@21 an hr I think. Mostly box trucks but also tractor trailers.

If you deliver a truck somewhere are you on your own to get back or do they arrange that? I may be giving them a call tomorrow.

I am laid off for the winter and considering other work. Also looking into local roll off jobs.

At Ryder they had a van that would follow and bring them back. From what I could tell most of the moves were pretty local.

I interviewed for one of these positions, was offered, but turned it down due to too far of a commute for 0-25 hours a week (45 min. one way). Greg M is correct about the company vehicle. Another possibility would be returning with a truck they needed at your facility, or maybe one that needs service of some sort.
