    Moving to New Orleans in a few months. I have spent the past 4 years in food service (Sysco) and Im wondering how jobs are in the New Orleans area. Im not opposed to doing food service again but are their any good paying LTL or tanker jobs in that area? Also if anyone has any food service delivery I'd like to hear that to! thanks.

    Sysco and Coca Cola, in Harahan. Dupre also, they run Tankers and Dry vans. Lot of Tankers Outfits. Near the Pilot on hwy 61 near 310. XPO is also in St. Rose. West on 61 starting with Shell in Norco, Chevron in Rrserve, from there, all the way to Baton Rouge. A lot of Tankers especially near Geismer, by the big refineries. St Gabriel Truck Stop on Hwy 30, is full of Tankers. Good place to get info from Drivers. Clean Harbors, and Safety Kleen, and others that recycle the water from refineries, Crossroads in Kenner and Frisards near Reserve. have Local dry van Truckload work. Then you got the Port, Downtown N.O. Lot of containers. Also Hazmat chemical container work. There’s all kind of work down there.

    Southeastern and Saia seem to have a big presence there. Estes in Hammond covers NO and BR. Depends on where you live. Traffic is bad. Fog, River and Lake can make commuting a problem. Housings cheaper across the River on the West Bank. Plenty of work over there on the Harvey canal. Peters rd. and Destrehan rd. Other areas, like Laplace, especially Slidell have everything you could ever need. They’ve grown a lot over last 30 yrs.The commute would be a deciding factor for Me. Having lived down there quite a bit over the years. Housing in the city is very expensive. Overall cost of living is high compared to other areas of the south. If your not careful, it can take every dime you make just to live there. The only way to decide, is to drive all around the areas. There’s some big economic differences within a small area. Finding the right location to live might be a challenge.
