If you've been out of the saddle that long you will definitely need a brush-up. Most want at least a year experience in the last 3 or 6mo in the last year
Ex O/O Looking at options
Page 3 of 4
I will also look into a refresher course if necessary.
Right now, I am just trying to see what the possibilities are for me.
Get some sort of direction on not only what companies offer the best fright/miles to O/O's
as well as what exact steps I need to take to reach my goals once I have that information.
If it takes being a Co. Driver for a while, I am not above it.
I do think however, that I have the "know how" to operate a successful business.
If that opportunity is out there, and I can control my destiny, I would choose that route every time.
I stirred up a hornets nest.. I posted this info at another site...So many recruiters started calling... The calls started very early this morning and are still coming in.
Too late for me...But a warning to others in my situation... Be VERY careful where you post your inquiries.
I did have one company out of the deluge of companies that called, that said some interesting things.
UPS Freight. The lady said that As an O/O my lack of recent driving xp(experience) was not an issue.
They only required that I had more than a year of verifiable driving XP.
That I have haz-mat
And my truck meets their requirements.
I'm curious if any on here have or are currently driving for UPS Freight as an O/O. And what their experiences have been with them.
The pay/miles sounded good.
I may have to ask this question in a different area... but I didn't want to start a new thread yet.

I am pretty sure This info is incorrect tho,,, I found another thread about UPS and,.,,, Well I will just quote it.
Quoted from another Thread Date is from 2013
Well the only weekly deductions will be your truck payment(if you have one), your fuel and your insurance....No Trailer rental...No Fuel tax...No Base Plate...No ########!!!! So figure......90 cpm + .46 cpm FSC=$ 1.36 per mile x 3000 miles = $4080. My truck payment is $500 per week...My insurance is $175 per week. I am only getting 5mpg and only using 600 gallons on 3000 miles to equal = $2280 per week in fuel! Ok so lets see how this calculates...$4080 (per week revenue) Minus $2280 (fuel cost) = $1800 - $500 = $1300- $175 = $1125. Now Tax it!!! $1125 x 0.15 (15%) = $168.75. $1125- $168.75 =$956.75 Free and clear!!! You just made $49,751.00 NET Bring home this year for a Drop and hook job without Trailer rental....UPS pays within 48 hours of receipt of paperwork.... If you operate 6 days at a time at 10 hours per day, take the 7th day off everytime...you will never run out of hours...nor will you ever have to take a restart....You do what you want to...I'm taking my drug test on Monday...See you out there!!!!!
