    First you would have to wait for a shuttle driver to die then after his job is handed down to all his kin you might have a shot at LTL shuttle...

    True on hard to land a Shuttle position, but yes that is a good average pay for a Shuttle driver. You would hire on as Truckload or possibly Combo.

    99% chance that you will NEVER become a Shuttle driver at Averitt. Combo or Truckload? Maybe.
    Our dear leaders experienced how much money they could save with the use the Combo Driver, suggested of course by some ex-Conway pencil pusher. So any idea of EVER becoming a Shuttle driver with this outfit are slim to none.

    The reason COmbo wasn't thrown on the s**t heap of bad ideas years ago is because many people just let this screwing in pay hit them with no resistance whatsoever and the idea just made the shirts in corp. smile from ear to ear.

    Are you remotely happy doing what you are doing now? Hiring on to shuttle, is about the same as being taken bodily into Heaven! Unless you are kin to a shirt, or someone dies! If you happen to get hired on into a shuttle position, you 1st must be able to take a road test to ensure you can drive with your nose stuck high up the air, then you must be able to show a condesending attitude towards all other T/L and P&D drivers at ALL times!

    You're not going to get a shuttle job whitelinegazer. You can hire on to truck load and perhaps move to a combo position later. Almost all truck load trucks are auto shift...

    WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD HE/SHE HIRE ON IN TRUCKLOAD TO EXPECT TO EARN THAT KIND OF MONEY, OR EVEN IN THE SLIMMEST OF HOPES OF GETTING INTO A SHUTTLE POSITION, ONLY TO GET DISCOURAGED AND QUIT. Saw a memo at NAS offering a Single Sleeper Shuttle position to ANY COMBO or SHUTTLE DRIVER....NOTHING SAID ABOUT T/L or DEDICATED FOLKS....ONE big happy family,,,YEAH RIGHT!

    More than some.......I don't hate on ALL Shuttle Drivers......I save plenty of venom for P&D,Dedicated,Flatbed and yes my fellow Truckload Drivers. I'm sure that MANY of my fellow Avrt workers think I'm a complete ARSE!...I lose plenty of sleep about that.....NOT!
    BTW Any posts I make about the "SAINTED" LTL Shuttle Drivers are from personal observations and are NOT intended to be construed as "HATING ON THEM".
