I drive in Marlborough, Massachusetts. I got the job by being available on weekends, when nobody else wanted to work. I've been driving part-time for two years and they'd like me to go full-time, but the pay tops out at about $20 per hour for straight drivers.
The ability to repair light trucks, high-amperage battery systems, and hydraulics systems are all big plusses, as is knowledge of refrigeration, CPR, first aid, and how to run a scoreboard. Knowledge of medium-heavy equipment (skid-steer or forklift) and being *cautious* are very helpful.
When you interview, stress your work ethic, honesty, cool temper, and ability to work with others. Expect to make very little money to start - I started at $10 per hour, but got raises pretty quickly. This is a job, like any other, and you have to present yourself as a profitable worker.
