    They do a background check and a credit check. Maybe they didn't like one of those.

    They didn't do the background check, they have to call you in after they chose you and have you sign a release to allow them to start the background check. My background is absolutely spotless. Oh they never called my ex employers so i know they didn't start the background check. They would of informed me they started the background check.

    I would assume they do, as its the best way to tell if someone was on drugs in the recent past.

    Start off at a municipality. I currently drive a garbage truck for my. City I live in. And it's easy. I have two helpers and all I do is drive. It doesn't pay as much as allied but it's a good job to get your expierence. I get 11.33 an hour and I get paid for 40 hours no matter how much I work. Even if I finish my routes early and only work 30 I still get 40. Most municipalitys give you the weekends off. I also started with zero driving exp. I started out as a ground crew and a friend of mine let me take my cdl road test in his garbage truck and they hired me after 2 weeks.

    I just had an interview for a residential driver out of the scottdale pa location and they start out at 130.28 a day and then 139.59 after 90 days. Its also union 66 they told me 5 mon-fri occasional saturday because of a major holiday of course, or an extra clean-up on saturday. I guess your pay depends on you and truck maintenance whether you make decent money.
