    Sunday out is terrible where I drive, you have to deal with all the weekend traffic returning home to the bay area.

    You don't really make "big" money in region 1 unless you have a set run

    I'm thinking about transferring to the area grocery DC I'll be driver #4 and can choose any setrun I want (the 3 ahead of me do mentoring and office work type stuff so they don't pick set runs is what I was told). As opposed to being #93 at my current DC where I wouldn't be able to get a setrun for probably another decade.... hmm

    Same here, hope you drivers stay safe. They close the stores around Boston MA early and I think they stopped delivering at night. Also don't want drivers laying over at them stores, probably the same in most big cities now.

    I just got a conditional offer of employment. I start Orientation in Red Bluff, CA on July 6th. My first 500,000 miles was on a 10 speed but for the last year I have been driving an autoshift Cascadia. Heard a washout say that you FAIL if you double clutch and if you don't shift ABSOLUTELY PERFECT you FAIL. Is it that crazy?
     
    truckdriver31 Thanks this.
