    Reinhart?

    sponsored links
    Do any of you guys know anything about Reinhart Food Service pay, bennies, etc? I know that its foodservice, which means the work is generally demanding and difficult. I have a road test scheduled at their New Stanton (Pittsburgh) facility on Tuesday. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Subway, Kings and Vocelli are there biggest customers around here. Some of the Subways and vocellis are a pain in the azz to get into. Lots of blindsideing and backing off the road. Get use to very early morning start times. These guys are out delivering before me and I start between 3 and 4 am. I have talked to them about a job but declined because of the distance from my house, so never really got into pay and stuff discussion.

    And by the way, welcome to the board.

    I hope Reinhart FoodService treats their own drivers better than the way they treat the drivers that have to deliver to them.

    I'm sure they do, I have delivered to food warehouses with fedex and others and they just have a way of doing things, no one seems to like it, they get so many whiney OTR guys in there that don't wanna lift a finger but don't wanna pay a lumper, I guess they just get numb to people.

    I have been treated well by all the foodservice outfits that I have worked for.

    Doube r, thanks for the welcome. Do you happen to know how much territory they cover from that facility? I'm wondering if they have layover runs available. I live in Oakmont and would prefer driving to New Stanton as little as possible, but I'll take what I can get.

    I don't think they have layovers. I know they cover alot of area though. How many years experience do you have driving?

    Started driving in 1991 at age 19. Coca Cola trained me to get my CDL, worked there for 11 years. Now I work for Supervalu and UPS, both part time. I'm looking for something full time with benefits, physical labor doesn't bother me. Eagle Express Lines (hauling mail) called the other day, but they haven't followed up to schedule the road test yet. I'm going to give them a ring today, but the Reinhart gig is definitely more appealing to me.

    You have a PM and Eagle offers no benefits unless you want to pay a arm and leg for them. Know a guy that drive for them. He now works for USPS. He that was the only good thing aboutr Eagle, helped him get a foot in with USPS.

    Reinhart is a ok gig. You work your butt off. Here in the twin cities they go out with 1300 to 1500 cases a day. But they do send help with you alot. They make good money here they make 70,000 to 75,000 a year maybe more.

    You started the same way I did. I started at 19 with pepsi but I didnt get my cdl there I got on my own then I started with a foodservice company and they trained me. Welcome to the boards. I would like to get a job at UPS but its very hard to get in there. Supervalu would be a good gig to. Here in MN there teamsters but I think there teamsters everywhere.

    Around here the Reinhart drivers are on there own. No helpers. 12-14 hour days.
