There is on the job training lasting 30 to 60 days, so you will not be "thrown to the  wolves".  Training pay is the same as regular pay. After training, you will be issued a tablet that will have your monthly route assignment and your driver log software on it. This is an over-the-road position, and routes typically take about 2 1/2-3 weeks to complete and are available at the first of each month. 

The work starts in the first week of the month. You will be given a route to follow and when you finish and return to the shop you have four options. 

Option 1 - If a route is available (about 95-100% of the time), you can go back on the road if you want and if it has been approved by operations. 

Option 2 - You can work in the shop for shop pay until you are assigned a new route in the next month. (Shop pay rate is $10/hr)

Option 3 - Stay at home with no pay. 

Option 4 – A combination of the above. (Stay at home a few days, work in the shop and  go on the road early - in any order) 

We pay by the day.  Our drivers work 8-10 hours a day and 7 days per week if the stores/stops are open.  Driving counts as working. If stores/stops are closed and you are on the road you still get paid for that day (Some stores are open on Sundays, you must search or call to find open stores within  120 miles of your shutdown location). If your truck breaks down on the road you get paid for the day. If you take a day off while on the road with accessible customers, you will need to pay for your own hotel room and you are not paid unless you take a paid vacation day.
