    After a long hiatus I wanted to drive again because that’s where the money is I worked for a food service company for about 4 months. It was alright until someone stole my pallet jack (another driver broke my lock and hid it in the warehouse). I ran around for a strong two weeks without it. I bailed on the job because I was so burnt out. I applied at central transport for a line haul driver they made me a city driver. I did it for one day and told them it wasn’t for me and that I had applied for the line haul position. Food service job was physically tough but didn’t really bother me until I didn’t have a jack to sort my pallets and find product. Without it your days go from 12 hours to like 19 hours. Anyone know of any jobs in or near Philadelphia that hire someone with less than 6 months recent experience.

    I’d prefer local but not Ltl or linehaul or otr but only if it’s team driving

    Has some good team runs.
    I'll Private Message a contact phone number to you.
    Give her a call and ask about teams.
    The photo is caves in Missouri. You drive into the caves to deliver or pickup frozen or refrigerated foods. I've been there and it's very interesting.

    Elite Express usually wants 6 mos. experience, but sometimes will cut some slack for a good team driver.
    I'd submit an application and let the company decide. Someone will call if interested in hiring you.
