Does anyone know the best place to look for blue collar or local driving work?

I would start with an internet search for trucking companies.
You could also try the local companies such as Coke, Pepsi etc....

Harris Teeter has a warehouse in Matthews being a busy time of year perhaps
they are hiring. Good luck !!

Also we're coming up on the Holiday Season which means UPS and FedEx will be looking for additional Holiday Drivers to satisfy the increased package demands.

I use to work up in the Philly Air Hub and I'm sure they've already started hiring/looking for additional drivers. Could provide some extra income for the next 8 weeks, and possibly open a door for continued employment.

Did a quick little googling for the UPS Job (non driving help) - http://ups.jobhost.org/viewjob.php?i...61591533493269

...you can work for UPS as a Seasonal Driver Helper from Thanksgiving - Christmas (Days, 8AM - 8PM varying hours, M-F) delivering packages in the convenience of your own neighborhood?

Driver Helpers hours vary based on route assignment and may be anywhere from 3 to 8 hours each weekday (Monday through Friday) usually beginning after 8:00am and ending before 8:00pm. Driver Helper seasonal assignments are typically between the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday time period.

Driver Helpers do not drive the delivery vehicle but assist the driver in the delivery of packages. This a very physical outdoor position working in all weather conditions and variable temperatures with continual walking and lifting of packages that typically weigh 25 -35 lbs. and may weigh up to 70 lbs. The Driver Helper position requires excellent customer contact skills, ability to read delivery addresses and compliance with UPS appearance guidelines. Driver Helpers usually meet the UPS driver at a mutually convenient location and is dropped off at the same location at the end of the day.
