Ditto on the low pay...you can get away with that with your guides, but not bus drivers. Federally mandated drug tests with 100% blacklisting for refusal or failure, violations and potential fines from the fuzz, and getting yourself and others killed are pretty big occupational hazards for what they pay at burger land.

Ha Ha, Like most things in life ya get what ya pay for. Not sure that scraping the bottom of the barrel looking for drivers is the cheapest way to get business done in the long run. Coming from an entirely different sort of industry, skilled drivers are tough to come by. Find a good one and treat em right so they stick around.

Good lawd, 11$/hr for a five month gig? Also sounds like a hell schedule where you are constantly subject to be called into work.

I wonder what a class b with air brake endorsement makes in the oil fields?

So I'm assuming that you need to work 7 days a week to make your 40 hours and that you want to pay about 60% the going rate for an experienced CDL driver and no benefits. Only a fool would take your job.

Best pony up more than 11$ an hr if you want your clients to arive alive. I'd rather stack rocks for 13$ an hr and raft on the weekends. That is an insulting low pay for a cdl driver.

Wow on that note I've got seasonal mower positions open at Denver Public Schools for $11/hr. No CDL just drivers licence and need to be able to work until October M-F 6:30-3:00. You will primarily drive a mower on a route through Denver. Denver Public Schools under "Grounds Seasonal Help".
