    is it true that new hires do not get hired as drivers that they have to start working the dock first

    New hires will drive but they will also work the dock and whatever else the supervisors can think of.

    i've been there for almost 4 years now, and I seen maybe 5 city drivers turnover out of 115. I think its a great company to work for. The dock isn't that bad.

    speed,you can start driving right away if thats you get hired for ,we also have combo drivers that work the dock and drive,its true if you want to work extra hours and they let you work the dock have at it,but they do not make you work the dock first,every terminal is different depending on there needs.........good luck.........great company

    Starting pay will be at least $17.35 an hour and 2 years to top pay. You get a 50 cent raise every 90 days until you top out $21.35 at my barn. It may be higher in other places like Atlanta, Charlotte and other bigger cities or where cost of living is higher. Linehaul will usually startoff running the system being gone all week but I have heard of guys getting home every other day when they first get hired. Top out for linehaul is .52 mile.

    I might add that even if you run the system, they generally get you home during the week once. Doesn't happen every week though. Also a terminal as big as GBO generally has city drivers wanting to go to linehaul. They get first choice over a new hire. Good Luck.

    Newbie,

    As one who also had been laid of by ABF, I can tell you it is a good place to be :thumbsup:. I have not been off work since I started. These people take care of the drivers, they really do :dance:. I can assure you if you get on you will not go back to ABF. Good luck

    got hired today and will start p&d monday. when i left sefl terminal today it
    takes me an hour to get home i got on the computer and got a letter from
    sefl congradulating me on my new job. have never had a company do that before.
    i was in the terminal mgr office with him and the safety guy and all they talked
    about was good things about sefl. they really make you feel good when you are
    there. kind of like when i use to work for A/F. they told me that your family comes
    first i really think they meant it. ok you all have a good day 10 speed out of here. :banana:
