    Or can you obtain them after you've been offered a position?

    doubles, hazmat from what i had been told when i had applied. (i had all endorsements when i applied)

    can't say if you can get them later, best to have all you can get NOW, and be done with it and be fully prepared for a job anyplace.

    Considering they get more applications than they have openings for....If or if not they require endorsements before applying doesn't matter.

    If freight, then Doubles/Triples, HAZMAT (and you'd better read the book up, down and sideways....) and then Tanker, not that you would be towing tankers, but because of the large totes containing liquids.

    Not sure about small pack.

    i have to add, that i met a driver probably last week, who just obtained his cdl license probably a year or less ago and UPS freight linehaul is his first driving job. Making big $$$.

    We've hired students lately out of my terminal... They start at .50 cpm and 20 bucks an hour. Great pay for a driver with no experience.

    It's been said already, but am confirming:

    Freight requires doubles, hazmat and tanker.
    Small package requires doubles.
     
    Texas_hwy_287 and Bob Dobalina Thank this.
