1. They're training me. 2. They're paying me. 3. They have many career options.

That question brings up another idea: there are pros and cons to every industry, every company. The perfect job doesn't exist. So, the goal is to find the best fit, where the low points are tolerable, and the high points are valuable to you.

Werner: 1. Brand new equipment; got a Cascadia with 43 miles on it. Drove it to 60K then changed to a new T680 due to a shop delay on a trans. issue. Basically, if they can't get you back on the road within a few days, they will swap you into a different truck.

2. Serious about home time commitments. Due to breakdown, was going to miss a semi-important personal event (not life or death) that I had asked off for. Werner bought me a plane ticket home and a rental car back.

3. Driver is in complete charge of Route and when to shut down. Werner never pressures you to roll when your judgement is to shut down. Also, we are able to self route, basically disregard Qualcomm if desired, and if weather forces a major reroute (once added 250 miles to a trip going through Vegas instead of over Donner - my decision, not theirs) fleet Mgr will pay you for the extra miles. We have a lot of 1mil, 2mil, and some 3mil mile drivers and I definitely understand why.

Qualcomm:

Omnitracs (a.k.a. Qualcomm) is a satellite-based messaging system with built-in GPS capabilities built by Qualcomm. It has a small computer screen and keyboard and is tied into the truck’s computer. It allows trucking companies to track where the driver is at, monitor the truck, and send and receive messages with the driver – similar to email.

TruckingTruth was founded by Brett Aquila (that's me!), a 15 year truck driving veteran, in January 2007. After 15 years on the road I wanted to help people understand the trucking industry and everything that came with the career and lifestyle of an over the road trucker. We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
