    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.

    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

    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)

    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)
