    I reported to my DC Monday morning at 8. Did HR paperwork and CBLs (Computer based learning.) Very boring 2 days. Then I went out with a trainer for 4 days. I think usually it works out that you're with the trainer for 3 days, so you only work 5 days, but oh well. He drove the first couple of days, and then I drove the last day of the first week, and all of the second week. After that, I was on my own. I'm pretty new. I started my onboarding on 11/11/19. Aside from some communication/organization issues, it's a pretty good job. I don't have decades of experience like some of these guys, but this is the best driving job I've had. It sure beats delivering smokes and candy to gas stations.

    New York drivers don’t get any 10% premium(unless changed). The only DC I heard that got extra % or something along those lines is the DC out by Pittsburg, PA.

    Like @mxpx148 we get an extra 5% in NH (6030). I was told it was because our region is the Northeast...dunno but I’ll take the extra money haha
