Tissues,shop stewards and very senior guys lock up a steady shift. There are afew slots that are steady(cfc,lot cleaning, paint shop). Otherwise expect to bounce around for afew years. It isn't that bad unless you are trying to hold a second job. Your first 30 days out of fbf are strictly day shifts.

skip the shorts for now. You really don't want to do collection in shorts. Plus the truck cabs are pretty dirty. Suggest you buy really good rain gear. Cheap stuff rips easy and soaks you in your own sweat.

They should take into consideration where one lives and not just throw you anywhere but it is what it is. Since you were a military guy you should do well in this job. You don't see yourself putting in 20 yrs Joe?
Hey if that guy can go till 71 so can I!! And with the 3 year buy back I only have to do 17. lol so at 68 I can retire again!

I forgot about that rule,yeah in your case you don't need to do 20 yrs to collect your pension. That sanman who died recently worked until he was 76,77 yrs old. Never called in sick in over 35 yrs. Well he was an army guy which is why I bought it up. I hope the younger guys on the job give you respect even though you are a newbie. That is the way that it should be.

Hey guys
First off congrats to all the new hires, I wish you all the best of luck!

I stumbled across this thread by accident, I was beggining to give up hope of being hired! But stumbling onto this thread has given me renewed hope! Thanks to all you guys for the great info you post here I have read through the 400+ threads here and it is a great resource!

That being said passed the written with a score of 101.25, assigned list # 146*, I passed the physical test no prob with plenty of time to spare on both segments and that is where I stand at this point I guess I am waiting for a medical exam? Is that right that I should get my CDL on my own?

Also is my list # decent? It doesn't look like I'll be hired this year, I figured on waiting 18-24 months anyhow!

Thanks all,
-Gerry
