    Ok, after sending app & resume to Sysco, i get an e-mail back telling me they want to set up a phone screen interview with me, its been two days and i have not heard from them.
    Is this normal or am i just too impatient?

    Am i too old?

    I`m 51 yrs old,but in great shape.My driving record is clean and so is my background.

    So could my age be a factor?

    We had a guy retire recently that was 66 I believe, and he was a route driver, started with us when he was older than you.

    If you want to work here, they will hire you, once you have the sit down, and its done, call the mgr twice every week, ding donging them is irritating but they will get the message that you really want the job, I swear it works.

    You probably won't have to do that, with your background they are gonna snatch you up pretty quick and hope they can get 5 good yrs out of you and then turn you out to shuttle till you retire..LOL!!

    That would be great, what kind of pay do Shuttle Drivers make?
    They also have a Special Delivery position open too, do you know anything abt that?

    I get paid by the hour, most non-union houses pay by the trip plus wait time, don't worry, you will make a good living either way, as for the special delivery, I have never heard of that.

    Probably van deliveries out of will call since sales can't anymore. I think that's how they worded it here when they hired van drivers.
