    Check the job posting. Some allow you to only have a permit. Some want u to have the cdl. I had my permit and they trained me, along with many others to get our cdl

    I have an interview on Monday for a relief driver full time position class a license. Covering call out, sick call, vacations. When your not covering others, what do you do? Is this 40 + hours per week. Pay is $22.35 per hour, very good in my area. I also use to work for PBG about 9 years ago as a merchandiser. Will my chances be better, especially how I have experience building displays, stocking coolers and everything else they described?

    What does the road test consist of? I'm a new driver who has recently got my class a license a few weeks ago.

    Thanks, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes, your merchandising history will help you get the job. You know the products. That's a HUGE advantage.

    As far as the road test- that's different at every plant. PepsiCo is getting pretty serious about their road tests. I can tell you one of the plants in a major city had a serious accident and changed their road test. It's now way more difficult than the test you take at DMV. I can also tell you that another plant I know of basically has no road test. Drive around the block and you're good.

    All depends on your area. Same thing with the pay
     
    Bigez22 Thanks this.

    Went to my interview Yesterday (Monday). How long does it typically take to hear from Pepsi about the next step in the hiring process.

    The road test that Pepsi makes you do, what exactly does it consist of?

    It's different everywhere. Some places it's tough, other places it's cake. Just be prepared for anything.
