    There is an ad in the local paper needing feed truck drivers for a new company in town called Sanderson Farms. I was wondering if anyone had driven for this company or driven a feed truck and knew anything about it. The pay is listed at $14.30/hour. I am wondering what kind of hours are included, benefits, etc. These things are not listed in the ad and no phone number is listed only where to go to put in an application. Thanks for any insight someone can give me.

    I will keep this updated, I went today to the employment office where they do the hiring but the wait was about an hour so Im gonna have to go back early one morning.

    I also found out about another driving job in the Kinston, NC area looking for casual drivers from wednesday-sunday from 1700-0200 to work when they need you hauling mail for MCA Logistics, starting pay on it was 18.79/hour plus 4 more dollar for something I was told but more than likely I wont be able to apply for this one. So if anybody in this area looking for casual work, go put it in application at mcalogistics.com, then call them and let them know you put in an app with them. The lady made it sound like the pay was 22.79/hour. Pretty good for local.
