drop by the terminal's and introduce your self, let them know you are interested in working for Saia.
I finally got an interview with Saia. I was told start time for new hires would be anywhere from 1-3 in the afternoon. Just as an average how long do you think it would take before start times get better? By better I mean earlier. Of course, they wouldn't answer except it could be a year or longer. Does this sound about right? Has anyone seen shorter times? Longer times? Im considering just goin ahead and jumping on it. BTW this is out of the Dallas (grand prairie) terminal. Any info would be appreciated! Thanks!
I followed the advice and dropped by the terminal in GP with my resume but still nothing. I have applied for every opening in the area trying to get hired and I dont mind the later start hours but I cant even get an interview.
When I started there it was around 6 months later start times got earlier. During the winter months you might be asked to take the day off, but its like that everywhere. Starting out all you do is swaps, thats easy. Delivering and picking up at hard to get to small business can be tough. Swaps are mostly big distribution centers with lots of docks. The smaller terminals usually need city drivers it seems.
Thanks for the info Hadeshorn! I was told I'd be doing the swaps to start off and then eventually get into more of a p&d slot later. I've been with my current company for about 6 1/2 yrs working M-F, but in order to make any money I have to run all over Texas which is at least one night out a week. Lately it's been a little more than that. How do you like it over there? How many hours are you getting a week?Originally Posted by Hadeshorn
