    OD has a much better reputation than most companies. Lots of guys make a career out of the place. Do well for them and you will probably have a better experience in this industry than most company drivers.

    I’ve never worked for them, but have dealt with them, delivering freight to them.I can honestly say, they would be my first choice, over similar operations. I’ve seen a lot of Operations. Just about all of them. The Knoxville Terminal especially impressed Me.

    What’s the pay rate and do they start you off on dock or will you be driving? I have a interview with them next week for the same position.

    I'm an OD driver so I can answer any of your questions. Our pay scale differs from region to region. I'm located in the midwest and our hourly rate is $30.53, solo mileage is .7088 and the team rate is .81. We also get drops/ hooks/fueling pay. We will get our annual raises in September and it's usually around 3 percent.
