    According to a Feb. 22 announcement, the company on March 8 will open enrollment to an eight-week CDL training program at seven locations; Chicago, Indianapolis, Nashville, Portland, Ore., Maybrook, N.Y., Carlisle, Pa., and Richfield, Ohio. The program will open to other locations later in the year.

    Yellow said students will be in class 40 hours a week during the four-week, paid training program, with an instructor preparing them for the appropriate state’s Class A CDL skills and road test. If the student is away from home during the program, Yellow will provide pay for travel and accommodations. After completing the program, there are four more weeks of training at the driver’s home terminal.

    BEWARE! Yellow has been in trouble for some time. The last bailout they received in July gave Uncle Sam 29.6% ownership. Unlike UPS Freight, the list of buyers for an LTL outfit with past due health, welfare and pension contributions is very short!

    People here have been saying this for many years about YRC , yet here they are hiring 1500 new drivers, and offering a paid training program. Things can’t be all that bad there. They pay decent, free health care, etc. It’s a good job.

    Job isn’t bad at all. It’s honestly very laid back almost too laid back meaning unorganized and no accountability. Just the higher ups suck with money they mismanage it and never or hardly profit. Then they will cry that they can’t give you a raise. Why they are .10 cpm under what the other LTL’s are making. They still pay decent and have great healthcare. You just can’t count on the pension like SSI. It might be there when you retire or not. Just like the company it might be around 20 years or it might go under. A lot of uncertainty with them. They’ve been like this for years and years and somehow survives.

    Yep, there’s no certainty anywhere in trucking. Things can change overnight, no matter where you are. Fortunately, just about every company is always hiring.
