    I would like some info as a student driver working at hubs in Nashville TN Chicago Heights and OK City just the road driver jobs. How long it takes to be on call till you get a bid run? The average pay/miles a week? Do they try to make you team up first? I don't have a wife or kids yet, I could stay out 4 to 8 weeks, how many days off could I get or would they always send me back to the home hub? I know I will get various responses to the 3 hubs above I am looking forward to getting the information Thanks in advance!!

    then why go to nashville or ok. theres tons of work around chicago, gary, etc. since you know the streets. that makes it 10 times easier for you. ups freight has a barn in south holland

    I wanted to get some info on the 3 hubs I posted, I know where I can work at, if you can't provide the information why respond to me? YRC is not the only company I'm interested in.

    i know that with any ltl company you will start at the bottom. you maybe on a extra board or have to call in every night. you may get laid off during the slow time until your seniority builds. last time i check. yrc made you give back i thank 10% each week. if you got a wife and kids. better think super hard about yrc,abf,usfholland etc. maybe look into ups freight,od, fedex.
