    Depends on the area, Company and openings. I like Mom and Pop outfits…gives you a chance to negotiate stuff like that. But search in your area, apply and see what you can make shake.

    I think @Chinatown may have mentioned in another thread somewhere there’s a lot of chemical work out that area as well.

    Diesel Direct and Heniff Transportation both hire new cdl school grads in LA.

    Do what makes you comfortable and helps you attain any goals you have.

    Another thing that’s depressing is the no phone policy at Sysco while driving even on Bluetooth! I wonder if Abf has this same policy. My last company allowed you to at least speak on the phone using Bluetooth.

    meh, that never really bothered me because it’s not a lot of driving. I’d be on the phone unloading because you spend your whole life stacking boxes

    It really depends on your goals. If you need to make a lot of money quickly and build up some savings, there’s nothing wrong with staying with Sysco for at least a few months, if not a year. The fact that you’ve already made it 2 weeks without quitting is a sign that you can probably handle the work.

    On the other hand, ABF is a great company to work for in the long term, and has excellent benefits. If you’re at a point in life where you’re ready to find a company you can eventually retire from and/or you could really use some good health insurance, then you should take a shot at ABF.

    they should really called food/beverage guys stock boys with a CDL or lumpers with a license.

    ABF has a pension, but they only pay 19ish in my neck of the woods. They do pay OT at 8 hours.

    Sysco will force you to get vaccinated if they’re legally allowed in your state
     
    Nolandia1 Thanks this.

    I see no lies. Several drivers there often claimed they were delivery guys who just happened to drive a truck.
