    I'm from Buffalo NY. Does anyone know what it's like to be a city driver for holland? Also what pay is like. And do they still have a pension or not. Have my road test Friday and I'll probably start Monday. Any info is appreciated.

    We just had a driver transfer in from the Buffalo barn

    He said it was late start times for the junior guys and expect to do a ton of night time dock work once you complete your route. Of course the entire company is union, so you can expect to jump through their hoops as well. He said when he got in early, he was not allowed to leave until every senior driver came in after him. I can pick his brain tomorrow if I see him. Let me know what direct questions you have.

    If you get on get hand warmers and the best set of coveralls you can find. The dock isn't heated and you will be there until close out every night most likely. I'd be nervous hiring on at this time of year. January, February and March are the slowest months of the year for ltl. The health benefits will take 3-5 months to get depending on your start date. You gotta get so many days worked in a quarter to have them the next quarter. Best of luck for you and your family in these crazy times and be safe.
