    Drivers that they had.

    The other thing not to overlook is to become a helper at a food/beverage place; This could get your foot in the door quicker and have you working, making $$$ quicker.

    Because remember all the drug testing a paperwork/verifying employment takes time for a driver. But a helper could be working virtually immediately and then you could be going thru all the paperwork bullplop to be hired as a driver simulatneously WHILE you are working as a helper.
     
    MACK E-6 Thanks this.

    Only the senior guys (10 years +)at my place still get work. The rest of us haven’t seen a route in 3-5 days.
    A pandemic, who would have thought...
