Not a long term job and they know it.
Bobtail Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Gary, IN – 26 June 2018
Typical day, is getting up early to be there at 630am. Generally hit between 3-5 stops per day to collect retail hazardous waste and drop as needed. Lots of paperwork in addition to handling freight at the drop center. You also take on the role, of computer technician to keep your equipment up and running and restock supplies for the truck. That said, at days end, I was normally dead tired .. with no energy to do anything else. And ironically, raises are pretty small .. so get as much as you can upfront! One other thing .. high exposure to household chemicals, mainly from broken containers and accidental sprays .. so really the starting pay is well below what you may sacrificing, so use PPE!
