What is pay for city drive
Slip seat trucks?
Looking at Columbiana
No OT pay, unfortunately.
Some trucks get slip seated.
What is starting pay for city?
What does it top out at?
How long to top pay?
3 years to top I believe, I don't know the starting pay, but top in the South is $27.27. Top up North is $28 something I've heard.
28.50 up here in the Northeast.
Most barns have plenty of extra work but no OT pay, just straight time, start times are different everywhere and most twin screw tractors will be slip seat as well as a few single axles. It takes either3 or 5 years to get to top rate.
Thanks guys. Situations at home may have me changing jobs so I can be home daily.
You will be required to buy your own pallet jack that they will provide for you and take out of your check weekly until it's paid for. They're version of OT is giving you extra stops or pickups if you ask. Your also on the clock and not required to do logs only the linehaul guys have to, I dunno how they get around it but..... you will top out after 3 years however you will get a raise every 6 months until you top out. Start times are between 6am and 9am and usually the guys average 10 hours. I believe I was paying around $110 a week for the full family health benefits also. You could do worse in this industry, I had no complaints when I was there. Hope this clears some things up
Did you have any info about combo drive here in Atlanta
28.50 in the northeast
Huh. Buy your own pallet jack. If you get a better deal somewhere else can you bring one in? What do you do once you decide to quit, take the pallet jack with you? Anybody care to elaborate?
Couldn't tell ya, I was linehaul. I know the pallet jack was $500 tho. I would think you could supply your own and I did see "for sale" pages up in the dispatch room but I don't wanna give u bad info, that's just what I know to be true in NJ
Yes, you can buy a two wheeler & pallet jack from anywhere. If you buy them through R&L, they will set up weekly payroll deduction for them if you like. I've seen some guys take them when they quit or get lucky and sell them to a new hire before they leave. I've always thought it was shady to make the drivers buy their own, but oh well... There was actually an order form in the driver's room for electric jacks not too long ago. I think we actually had two drivers order one, at like $4 to $5,000 a piece....umm NO!!
Are you seriously saying that r&l doesn't provide drivers with the equipment needed to do the job? At no cost to the driver?
In California R+L provides your pallet jack at no cost, also reimburses for required work boots once per year.
Have they ever heard explanation for why they make the driver buy this equipment?
I was told it was so we would take responsibility in keeping up with them and not leaving them behind at customer’s docks.
Yep, that’s the way it’s been for years.
Hmm, in TN, we’ve never got reimbursed for boots either.
I prefer owning my own jack because I can take care of it and also community jacks type system is always junk.My jack is 11 yrs old and works great
