check the abf website under employment to see if they are hiring.
Good-evening ABF brothers, Im a 10yr New Penn driver from NYC who's eventually trying to move down to sunny South FL and i noticed there's a terminal right off I-95 Blue Heron exit. from the looks of it, it's real small and i saw a bunch relo cubes & flatbeds. i see alot of roadmen pullin doubles in & out of there but dont see many p&d guys on the street. i've been vacationing down there for quite some time and know the area well, i see alot of the non-u's all the time but hardly any ABF guys. any one got any info ? looking to start over, thanks in advance
Good Grief! West Palm Beach? We have a terminal in West Palm Beach? Do they use Relo-Cubes to store the excess cash? Is there valet parking for inbound road drivers?...And you vacation there a lot?....Hmmm, Apparently New Penn pays better in NYC than it does here.......Just Teasing, Brother! I hope you can get on down there. If you're retiring, even as a casual you should do pretty well..............................Hey! We're Teamsters! Of Course we can vacation in West Palm Beach!
yo CC,u got it
Brother, I ran NYC back in the Mayor David Dinkum era. I suspect it hasn't got any better...for truck drivers, at least. If you can get on in WPB, it might extend your life-span by reducing your stress level. As Brother Muler says, Go For It!..but also, as Brother ABFer says, try to complete their hiring process first. He's absolutely right when he says their hiring has gotten very stringent as of late. I really think that ABF has come to realize there is a definite dividend in only hiring Top-Shelf drivers. It's also good to hear New Penn, as a company, isn't picking up any bad habits, management-wise, in spite of their YRC leadership. Us guys who've been with ABF for a long time suspect that we probably wouldn't qualify under their new standards. I think that if I had to re-apply, it would look like that scene in "Frankenstein" where the villagers chased the monster with pitchforks and torches.....
