    Just found out, ABF student driver program requires 2 year contract. And the driver has to stay at the same terminal they applied, for whole 2 years. I have a CDL Permit, so i am applying around for student training programs. ABF texted and told me about the contract. Just to let you know new prospective drivers. Good luck guys.

    I might have thought about it. But they don't have any open driver development program in Dallas-Ft.Worth area at this time. And that 2 year contract is kinda too long,I think, in case being not happy at the workplace.

    Is ABF one of those places you have to be on the extra board for years and sit the phone waiting to if you're going to work that day and what time? Also don't forget you better come in well rested and ready to go.

    Abf is one of the best jobs in this industry, if you can gain seniority and look past wanting a shiner new truck. You will be happy at this outfit.
