    Hi guys/girls - Would you try to break in (new CDL-A with Haz/tanker/doubles) as a driver trainee with Southeastern or go to some lesser company that will put you in the seat right away to get a year or two of experience?

    About how long does that working of the loading dock last? 3-6 months or longer? Any idea of the pay while doing it?

    I'm looking at West Palm/Dothan/Dalton or Savannah.

    Thanks for your time.

    No CDL yet - just searching right now. Saw the Southeastern site talks about the dock work for trainees?

    They do have a dock to driver program, but it varies from terminal to terminal as to how long it takes. Some managers may not even do it. Talk to TM and see what he/she says. Good luck.
