    The quick answer is YES. All ltl companies are desperate for drivers and willing to hire anyone. Enjoy these good times. It will change as the economy fluctuates so get in right now if you can. It definitely wasn’t like that when I started

    Yellow is constantly hiring. And we have picked up recent grads. All you have to do is survive punching in 30 times without an accident or getting hurt, then you are a full hire and under the union.

    Best of luck.
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.

    We are in the middle of a economic recession that will go on for at least another year or two. While the economy is contracting, the need for drivers will shrink

    I think he was trying to convey that you might as well jump on board now and have some seniority to get some kind of job security.

    If you do manage to get on with one of the nationwide outfits, be thankful. When I started they all wanted 5 years experience before they would touch you.
