Having a current CDL shouldn't be a big deal, but certainly the operations and maintenance managers would benefit from having frontline experience, and ideally the top managers would be those who have worked their way up as well (at another company or agency if necessary). For other positions (finance, human resources, etc.) it's more important to find people who are good at the job you're hiring them to do.

Good organizations also find ways to build teamwork by having employees from different departments cross-train in various jobs, if for no other reason than to gain a greater appreciation of what their co-workers go through. At a minimum, the operations and scheduling personnel should spend time driving or riding routes to understand what is actually happening out on the streets.


Funny you should mention guys like Personnel Managers. I always get a laugh when I pull out of the garage in the morning, still pitch black outside, and I see our Personnel Director standing outside, drinking his coffee, smoking his cigarette, his hair all completely disheveled whenever he needs to come in extra early. It's the funniest thing to see in the morning, and that's ONLY 6 20 in the morning. I'd like to see him for our early report times like 4 30 in the AM! LOL!!!

P.S. JT..I see your point and didn't mean to come off hard or anything like that, it's just that I get so frustrated when a shirt and tie tells me how fast I can drive is all Evil or Very Mad
