    My center is 21 a hr for 12 routes. Depending on your experience it will be easy if you haven't done this industry before it takes training 1200 to 1500 cases and 40k lbs a load takes a toll on you

    Sounds like exactly what I need. Got some pounds to burn. Time to break our the chamomile tea and protein bars.

    How long are regional guys out? They're recruiting hard here for them.

    Update: So I just got hired in at the new Findlay OH center as a driver trainee, Its grocery from what I understand. I did the strength test (it was way easier than I imagined stretching those hammies helped a lot!) and the hair and pee tests(I've been studying for years on those tests) I start in April and I am feeling really good about this. I am engaged and have a 5-month-old son and feel like this is the actual coming of age moment of being a good father/husband and a good provider. Sappy lame talk aside this was like trying to get into the free masons or the mafia; such a long hiring process just to get the "Associate" status! I go for two days of orientation in April and am told to dress "business casual?", It's a total oxymoron to me! I've been slapping shingles on a roof or cooking short orders for so long I either dress in a suit for a funeral or dress like a Bruce Springsteen wannabe. So that throws me off entirely. What am I expecting for my training as far as pay, hours, home-time, what should I pack for? Again I just got my CDL in mid-February and have zero driving experience, but not afraid or shy of physical labor.

    Thanks for all input and the community support for new drivers!

    My guess is that a big part of your orientation is going to be spent in front of a computer doing some e-learning. It's about as useful as the IPCS, and it has to be done every year. It's the same crap year after year, with the same old pictures and videos. Some of our food service stuff is undoubtedly different, but I'm sure a lot of it is the same.

    Our training pay here is $22/hr, but it's probably different there. Grocery is probably out and back the same day, or maybe one night out. Not sure how close you live to the dc, but you still need 10 off and a reset now and then. I'm sure they'll work you as much as they can to get you up to speed and some time behind the wheel.

    I live an hour from the yard but feel that $1200 after taxes will make it worth it. Hoping to pull that. Got bills to pay, savings to pad, a truck to repair/restore and a debt to pay off or I'd just stay doing yard work.
