    You need to read the hos regs.

    Night stock boy at the local walmart isnt safety sensitive until you do 8 hours stocking right before you roll out in an 18 for the day.

    I believe I have read the HOS regs quite a few times. I think in 24 years of driving with a perfect CSA score and numerous inspections I have a grip on it. Not to mention I owned my own trucking company and endured a DOT audit. Now having said that, I do believe that I mentioned that I don't agree with what the other posters said, I did not say they were wrong, I didn't say I was right. If you read the actual federal DOT HOS rules, not the abbreviated version you get in orientation, if you have a second job that doesn't require you to be under the HOS rules , then you do not have to log it. Second job making pizzas then go to a driving job, common sense will tell you that making pizzas is not under the HOS rules. Is it smart to work 8 hours making pizzas then go drive for 11 hours, no it isn't,, is it illegal or against the dot rules ,,, no it's not. Have a good day.
    darthanubis Thanks this.

    Thanks for the insights. My other job probably does fall under "safety sensitive", but as I said, they never even got around to asking about it, so that probably wasn't it. I think they just need a bigger commitment than I'm able to give right now. I checked into the Schneider/ Walmart gig in Bedford, but they needed 3 days per week. I was hoping for one.

    I'm gonna try Quality Driveaway. Afterall, the tractor is the fun part, not the trailer!
