    So I’m currently in a situation where I got hired at Usfoods as a delivery driver I’m just waiting for my orientation date while currently employed at usxpress on the dollar general account. When I do my calculation they both pay in the same $1200-$1800 weekly range. They’re both touch frieght, I don’t mind unloading the trailers cause I love being active to stay in shape usfoods pay a guarantee $250 for the day if I have anything less than 500 boxes, but anything after that they pay .50 cents per box the hiring manager said some days I’m gonna have from 800-1200 boxes, it’s local , home everyday. Usxpress I’m home only 2 days a week $0.45 cpm $25 per stop ( up to 4 stops per day) $90 per trailer.........which is better ? Can make between $220-$360 for the day, USfoods can be from $250-$500 for the day........Please give me some advice I’m 21 , single, no Kids, any tips on which one will fit my life better?

    Family dollar is closing around here as is Freds.

    IF this economy continues to deevolve it might not be a long term prospect.

    Keep in mind one of my rules to success is never taking a dollar account anything.

    Sleeping on your own bed and cracking open an ice cold beer after a hard days work is always a plus. But that’s just me.

    US Foods. Same if not better money and home everyday. Like @TankerP said, your own bed and cracking a beer at the end of long hot day... win win
