    A challenge is one thing. A straight up nightmare is quite another.

    Its probably case pay (number of cases+stops+miles+whatever bonus they decide). Being northeast it should be a union house but I'm not 100% on that either. I have been with them for going on 6 years in the midwest at a nonunion house and have very little complaints. Is it work yes are you gonna be broke down by 40 no 2/3s of the guys at my yard are 45+ with over 15 years seniority and still pushing a two wheeler everyday.

    No, I left after 2 years. With a straight truck be ready to go to Manhattan, Brooklyn and Bronx. It's hard work and they do pay by case, minimum per day was $210 when I left.

    It depends. I work for a domicile that was set up to eliminate layover routes, so our longest routes are around 200 miles, with most under 100 and many under 50. Some centers that service huge areas might have routes that are well in excess of a thousand miles, taking multiple days to complete.

    All depends on the company, the center, and the route.

    I was in a straight truck only for a few days after training. They put me out on long island yard which was good because I live on the island, I mainly left because I wanted to try being owner operator, when I do get tired of this I might go back to them it's good money I was grossing around $1500-1600/week.
