    I saw this posted on Indeed and it caught my attention because I have less than 1 year of CDL A experience (more B experience). I am ready to switch careers at 50 and I looked on their drive4yrc.com website and see that they have a Driver Development Training program for drivers with less than 1 year experience but wasn't mentioned in the job listing so was wondering is that part of this job since they have Road Driver jobs posted same location with at least 1 year experience required. They list hourly pay and mileage pay so I assume you get paid in combination.
    It doesn't specify home time but says that its driving terminal to terminal so is it OTR or regional work?
    I don't have to be home everyday but don't want to be out more than a few days because of family. I really really want to get back into transportation and am willing to start at the bottom and work weird hours (last career did) just want to try to be a good fit.

    They normally do layover runs... Drive from say Cleveland to Chicago sleep in a hotel then the next day or after 10 hour break go from Chicago back to Cleveland...

    Things may be different now but thats how it used to be with them Unless of course you run a team bid.

    Yes that is the terminal that had the job listed. I am working on getting all my endorsements before applying. I didn't notice at first but they require all 3 from the applicants.

    The Chicago Heights or as YRC calls it terminal #309 is one of the largest terminals in the nation. There is always plenty of work. You will start out running on a sleeper team so be prepared to be on the road for 3-5 days starting out.
