    I’d post the link, but I’m applying first :p

    thinking about switching from LTL back to throwing cases.

    I did beer in my younger years, but Keurig Dr Pepper is swinging that good money.

    30.43 at time and half after 40.

    I hate working long days, but a 70 hour week is almost $2600.

    Just curious if anyone has any insight on Dr Pepper. I’d imagine it’s the same as when I worked for a Budweiser and millers distributor 8-10 years ago.

    Haven't worked there in 10 years but there was 2 side. One hand delivered with a dolly to gas station, Walgreens, CVS etc and stocks shelves and coolers.

    the side used electric pallet jack and delivery to Walmart and big groceries stores, no touch didn't have to put it on the shelves compare to the others

    Union job and had to work your way up, so hand delivery job first and wait in line.

    Things could had changed but that was my experience

    Oh, I don't know, sounds a bit thick for a "soda jerk". Generally, beverage haulers never made a lot of money, but got valuable T/T experience. It's hard work, no lard axxex pulling soda pallets around. They may have bumped pay up, but I'd have to think more in the low to mid $20 range. I don't think pulling a gas can pays $30. A local outfit hauling mail was starting at $28/hr. Caution is advised.

    Figure that even if it is a side loader gig, everything will be built to order so you aren’t circling the truck multiple times with a pick list.

    I was surprised as well.

    Dr Pepper Snapple group got bought out by the K-coffee cup company a few years ago.

    they being European is my guess. More union influence even in nonunion areas, and a larger portfolio of food items under their names.

    The delivery trucks don’t need to run a profit like say a LTL truck because the food items do that themselves. They’re in the distribution game not necessarily the trucking game if that make sense.
     
    austinmike, 201 and dwells40 Thank this.
