1. Starting pay is the pay listed for the job you are applying for. You can only apply for jobs that are posted on the website. There are 3 pay “zones” based on the cost of living where the terminal is located. I’m in zone 2 and top hourly rate is $27.63 with 1 1/2 after 40 hours. Overtime however, is not paid at time and a half until your 3rd anniversary which is also when you receive top rate. Until then it’s all straight time. 2. Health insurance is 80/20 in network with no premiums or deductibles for employee and family, but there is a spousal exception. The spouse does not qualify if their employer has a plan and contributes to the cost of the premium, so in order to qualify the spouse will need to be unemployed, self employed, or have a plan through their employer where they are paying 100% of the premium. 3. I believe everyone gets 40 or more hours, and to answer your lay-off question, they have what is called a rolling layoff. If you are told to call in and then told to stay home, you will work the other 4 days that week and the one-day layoffs will work their way up the seniority list, starting at the bottoms. 4. 30 minute lunches are deducted from your pay each day and you are required to take them. 5. I think 8:30-9:00 but you may be asked to come in earlier on occasion. 6. Prior P&D experience is a huge advantage in the hiring process but as far as I know, after that the biggest benefit is that you already know what you got yourself into. There are no bids here. City drivers are assigned runs and I’d say most have set area but there are a few that don’t. I should point out that the start time and run info I provided is specific to the Washington, PA terminal where I work and could vary from one terminal to the next.
