Frederick MD CDL Jobs

The beauty of driving a Roll Off Truck is that you get to work more often...
even if it's been raining for days! The photo above was taken in Frederick Maryland of a Roll Off Truck leaving the Great Frederick Fair fairgrounds on E. Patrick St.

Why drive a dump truck at all?

OVER TIME!!! Time and a Half!

Look at it this way: the construction company will only get on average, maybe 200 rain free/ snow free days a year to get an ENTIRE YEARS worth of work completed.

so... you're going to get paid a years pay but have that years pay condensed into 2/3 of a year!... collect unemployment the other third of the year or work a part time job or what ever.

What is the difference between a Roll Off and a Dump Truck you ask?

Both have beds that dirt/stone/trash debris can get put in and dumped...

The Roll Off can leave the bed onsite, the dump truck has to stay there (with the meter running... most dump trucks in Frederick get rented out at the rate of $60 per hour (the company that owns the truck gets that, you get roughly $13 per hour)

Another thing a Roll Off can do that a dump truck cannot:

The dumpsters come in different sizes
1) big ones, 40 yard cans
2) medium ones, 30 yard cans like the can in the KW photo in the previous post
3) little ones, 20 yard cans - they LOOK little because they're not as tall but usually 20 yard cans get used for dirt/ demolition/ bricks/ cinder blocks/ concrete
they WIEGH more but aren't as tall

A small back hoe can not reach up to the side of a full size dump truck, but the can reach the sides of a 20 yard can.

Get your CDL as soon as possible.

The economy's 'status quo' is changing... you change with it and you'll be fine.

Next Post? Maryand MVA CDL learners permit how to.
