    I didn't see a forum for ABF: What does ABF look for in a new driver/how to get hired on?

    I heard ABF is a solid company, I'm interested in looking into them myself, I've been using this forum to research all the prime jobs... LtL is my choice of trucking, it's more $ by clock & more cpm by" click".... beverage & food seems to be more hectic driving although most local driving is a little more hairy canary, but you get bored sitting in the sattle for hrs and you see your family every day & live a fuller life

    Well, I'm back. I have an interview w/ABF next week (dock). Does anyone know what options ABF has to move into the driver seat? What is the starting pay for the dock? Thanks!

    Did you get on with Fedex. They're one of the places I'm looking at. between them, UPS and Pitt Ohio

    Yes, as a dock worker at Express. At my 90-day mark...I will be able to bid on driver jobs and if I get it (ni one with more senority wants it)...they will train.

    Just to be a dock worker? Seems strange.
    Can you not get hired on at Fed Ex Express as a truck driver? you have to go through the dock first?
