    Think twice about Pepsi. Unless you’re in a very small plant, you’ll likely be starting out doing drug stores and convenience stores. It isn’t the worst, but it’s a lot different than just dropping pallets off at the Walmart’s or big grocery stores. Those runs are gobbled up by the high seniority guys

    CDL Permit belongs to you and you only. No trucking company can take it or stop you from going to the DMV to get your hard copy CDL. The problem is getting a truck to use at the DMV. Some beverage companies help people get their cdl and use their trucks at the DMV. Your big headache right now is that mortgage payment. Do Stevens employees have access to a credit union that Stevens recommends. That might be a temporary fix.

    Edit: never tell an employer you already have a new job lined up.

    Almost sounds to me that this was your plan from the start, and Stevens/DMV mucked it up by not allowing you to get your CDL as normal. As others have said, and will say, the Pepsi gig has quite a bit of negatives. There is a reason that there is always openings for a driver.
    Best of luck.

    As a rookie....all of that close quarters city driving and manuevering in and out of those C Stores and such can be a career killer. My advice.....stick it out with Stevens.....you MAY REALLY end up regretting it if you don't. Good Luck

    If you're a military veteran or a family member of a military veteran, www.USAA.com will probably help you through the financial problems. This company is a federal bank and works with people that other financial institutions won't help.
    USAA helped me with a money transfer problem buying the house I'm living in now and also have my car insurance there.
