    Hey Naptown. How do I go about applying at OD? There's and open team position in my area and it says on their website to email my resume. Is that the only way to get in contact with them or do they take an actual written job application at their terminals?

    just email it in. If they're interested they'll call you.

    You can always locate the terminal phone number and pester them.

    Or just send the same email every day with your resume lol.

    You can email your resume if you like, but you'll end up applying in person at the terminal anyway. I'd go there first and skip the email. They have a computer station set up for applicants so paper resume isn't necessary, but take one if you've got it.

    Things to take, license of course. 10 year work history. Names, dates of employment, contact info because they do confirm. Dates don't have to be to the day, month and year is enough. Recent copy of your MVR. They're really only interested in last 3-5 years. They didn't hold the speeding and seatbelt tickets from my teen years against me.

    They have an opening here too but it's team only. Would love to work there but I think I'd almost rather go back to jail than team again lol. Did it for 2 years, was lucky to ever get 4-5 hours of sleep trying to sleep with the truck hitting bumps, starting/stopping, and if you were going through states like Indiana on 70, you could forget it. Whichever one of us was in the sleeper would wake up by the time you got to Terre Haute going east or the Richmond scale going west the road was so bad...
     
    Jmans, X-Country and Bob Dobalina Thank this.

    I think it might vary by region at OD, paying more in areas with a higher cost-of-living. @Naptown or @wawtrucker might be able to answer (if they're allowed to share with the class!)...

    They’re allowed, but it’s up to the poster if they wish to divulge who they work for.
