    My cousin told me that his Sysco building shut down due to the corona virus, so he's out of a job. Likewise, I took a long break from trucking and am finally ready to return. But, which companies are hiring right now due to the corona virus? Where should i be looking? Thank you.

    I heard Dominos and Papa John's were hiring pizza delivery guys.
    Amazon looking to hire 100k to deliver packages.

    Trucking? Dunno.
    OTR reefer my best bet, or a dry van grocery job.
     
    Chinatown, Dove and BackwoodsGA Thank this.

    Yep, apply to refrigerated companies; food and medicine have to keep moving.
    Trillium Staffing hires cdl drivers and the pay is usually pretty good.

    Albertsons/Safeway and some other grocery distributors are hiring some drivers. Don't know how temporary the jobs will be.

    How long since you've driven a cdl truck?
    Plenty of jobs out there for you.
    Where is your location?
