    Which one has better pay? Which one is more likely to hire a new driver out of school? Which one has better trucks? Which one has more opportunities for advancement? Do you drive more with Coke or with Sysco? Which one is harder work?

    You'll make a ton more money with Sysco.

    Considering you started asking questions like this all the way back in 2018 and you still havent gotten your cdl, this question is pointless. Theres no telling what payscales will be for these companies or which woupd be a better company by the time you get your cdl in 2029.

    I'll have my CDL in about 5 years but as I've said before, I have some issues to deal with first

    Are you not 21 yet? Are you an illegal? Are you incarcerated? Is your license suspended? If the answer is no, and with the market for drivers being the way it is, theres literally no excuse for you not to get your cdl right now. As in, you should be emailing schools tonight and start class this week.

    As I've said before, I have personal things to take care of first, I plan on getting my CDL but it'll be awhile before I do it... I'm not illegal, I'm not a felon (never been arrested), and no I don't have any license suspended

    Do you understand that whatever info you gather now will not be applicable when you get your cdl in 2029, and that you'll have to do your research all over again?

    I'll keep up on what's going on with the companies I'm interested in because of this site, news outlets, and trucking info obtained via anything else... Btw, I'll have my CDL in about 5yrs but I'll have delivery experience before then

    I hear Coke goes good with tequila, so go with them.
