will ask them about the pallet jacks and which route I would be getting.

They wouldn't be able to answer that with certainty. If Old Dominion is a company you're interested in, your best bet would be to find somebody working and ask them. They'd have a better idea of how the senior guys bid and what's left over for the new hires.

In searching, I found some things.

I found Lowes is hiring a full time driver.

I found a Tire company encouraging recent graduates to apply

And I found Pepsi

I have first hand experience with Pepsi. The schedule and benefits are a perfect fit for you. The work is physical, but not impossible and they won't send you out on your own until you and your trainer agree that you're ready. That was my experience, but these things change building to building.

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.
