    There’s an ad on Indeed for a local P&D driving position for R&L Carriers. An applicant would need 1 year of verifiable tractor-trailer experience, to which I only have 6 months, but I will definitely keep them in mind.

    If it’s overtime after 40 hours, and the average work week is at least 50-55 hours, then this would be a pretty good paying job, especially for the south Ga area (cost-of-living isn’t as high as other parts of the country). The ad states you must be able to bend, lift, and stoop without difficulty, so it’s safe to assume drivers unload their trucks, it being a pickup & delivery job. Is the physicality as strenuous as a food service job like Sysco?


    I believe someone mentioned R&L in a thread titled “Highest Paying Jobs”.

    Freight is a different animal than food service.

    FS pays a little better but freight is way less work.

    A well-respected member of this forum works for R&L and I want to say he said R&L doesn't pay overtime at all but they provide benefits most other LTL companies don't. Benefits like assigned truck and trailer (no slip seating) and working a lift-gate trailer is different than working a trailer with a roll-up door and no lift-gate.
    Lonesome Thanks this.

    Correct, no OT at all at R&L. Not a bad company though that hourly rate seems a tad low. Many locations are at 30.50 neighborhood top rate and some locations are desperate for drivers and are starting guys at top rate. The figure you quoted may be the first step in at three year progression to top rate. All depends if they’re desperate for drivers.

    and yes you can figure on a 10-12 hour day five days a week M-F generally as p&d. linehaul is a bit different
    Lonesome and 88 Alpha Thank this.

    Having done both FS and P&D, I can definitely say that peddling freight is WAY easier. You'll have ugly freight, but FS is 100% fingerprint all the time.
