    Hello, I noticed that Dayton Freight is looking for linehaul (and city) drivers in Huber Heights, OH. Anyone know if they will be looking in West Chester, OH also? This is a funny time of year to be hiring, are you guys that busy? Any feed back would be great. Thanks.:shift:

    Huber Heights is not that far away from West Chester, if there is a opening in HH (dayton) i'd go after it and if you get in you can let them know you'll be available for a cincy opening when one comes up.

    Thats a good idea, I didn't think of that. Do they allow transfers?

    yes, transfers are allowed per corporate approval,usually not a problem just as long as the two service center managers are onboard with it

    I think they always need drivers in Chicago. As far as the way linehaul is ran they have all three.

    They may not be doing anything till freight picks up a little bit.

    Turns are always out and back,dock is up to the driver no one can force you to work the dock.If you run a meet you get delay pay after the first half hour.

    you will work the dock only if your bid-run has dock work as part of that run. Or they happen to be really short handed at whatever dock you happen to be at at the time. Keep in mind, most, if not all service centers have or soon will have 'dock scanning' operational which means any and all persons doing dock work are monitored for
    bills per hour, so you will have a manditory level of output while doing dock work.

    They can't deny you work on dock.

    I have yet to see anyone in trouble on the dock as long as you are being somewhat
    Productive. Bulldog is also correct, if you want to work the dock you can.Your supposed
    to give them a half an hour after arrival but most of the time that isn't a big problem. Also
    If you ask to work the dock and your told there is no work, you will get delay pay.Never
    Seen that usually sweep the dock etc if no lift available.If you guys have any more questions
    Feel free to ask, most everyone here are good people and willing to help each other out.Best
    LTL job I have ever had.:usa::
