    Yeah I was wondering if it's a steady 40 hours a week.

    Mail haulers may work over 40 hours a week, but they don't get paid time and a half.
    Full time drivers get 8 hours holiday pay for about 8 holidays a year whether they drive that day or not. Part time drivers, you would have to ask about holiday pay. Single drivers can make a decent living hauling mail. Team drivers can make the bigger bucks. If you are ever offered a team run, you should give it a try.
    It looks like they are advertising $26 and change an hour. About $5 of that is Health and Welfare money for Health Insurance. Unless you are a veteran, you most likely will be forced to take the company insurance which I would guess is about $125 a week. Part time drivers may or may not be exempt from taking the insurance.
    I would call the OKC yard and try to speak with a manager or dispatcher. Or better yet, drive to the yard, and talk to a driver or two and get a feel for the place. All applications are accepted on-line only. With mail in ballots coming soon and the Christmas rush and covering vacations, you might stay pretty busy. I didn't work out of the OKC yard, but I heard it was a decent yard.

    I just called the recruiter. She said it's at least 32 hours but it could be up to 50 hours a week. So I'm good with that. They seem like nice people.she did also say they're merging with eagle Express lines so there will be a lot more opportunities. I might have to put an application in.
