Great for a single person
Route relief driver (Former Employee) – Greenville, SC – October 22, 2018
As a relief driver, I spent nearly every week away from home living in a hotel. The pay was pretty good, but I was never home and always working in areas I knew nothing about. Rarely did I know where I would be until a few days prior. Impossible to make plans or appointments.
Health suffers from long hours in very cold, wet trucks and hours driving and trying to make cut off times.
This job will break your body and your marriage, and the "Chinese overtime" is impossible for the company to explain. You just have to trust that they are paying you right because you do not get a detailed check stub showing your pay rate in overtime.
Good base pay, travel opportunities and independent work.
Long hours, Chinese overtime, excessive out of town work.
