    OD & McLane.

    - OD because of praise from several users here, high standards & starting pay
    - McLane because of starting salary & no previous experience required

    No offense to any other company who shares these qualities.

    Feel free to add to the list

    Hey! What about me? Don’t you hold out on *ME*!”

    Love,

    McLane advertises health benefits start at day 1 also. That’s pretty decent.

    Maybe because they want you to hump 5-6 cases of Gatroade at a time down a steep ramp, through a small door, around people that don't have a clue, rinse and repeat.

    I'd imagine lots of people have a blowout on the first day.

    That’s why I don’t do food service.

    I’m fine with rolling a whole pallet to the back so somebody else can unload it. :)

    I'd go with OD. Try for a line haul job with OD.

    Still looking at one more local company. Still more research I need to do. But you can get to a point of splitting hairs eventually.

    I know several young strong healthy fellows burned out on McClane quickly. Awful hard work.

    If that's what you're looking for, sure. You may be right. But both have their own set of issues and special requirements, in addition to their plus points.
