If you are hired at yellow as a CDL driver, you have to start working on the docks first before you can drive. This is why I didn't go with Yellow.
Yellow is the largest Union carrier in freight.
They own numerous companies including the USF corporation.
This may be true at some small terminals, but not where I work. I started as a road driver and that is all I do.
the people the moneeeeeeey!!!!!!!!
In Denver Yellow offered 16/hr for dock work, then when you moved to driver you got a 2 dollar raise if you did local work. OTR for Yellow out of denver was .36/mile
hmm..abf pays that too..i think ima look at all union jobs first.
these ar "casual" rates - and not full time employee rates.
work as a casual for a bit - then move into a regualr employee package...
(then you will be covered under the NMFA)
not true. they hire direct for road as do all Union LTL carriers.
many of us never get laid off - and I have NEVER been laid off...
the guys last year that were laid off for a couple of months still made more than the average guy working 12 months out of the year.
(it is all about budgeting)
