Steve L., what happened to you working with Schneider?

As much as I enjoyed driving for Schneider and appreciate them giving me a great start, I was able to land a position with a Southeast Regional company, Robert Bearden Inc (RBITrucking). I'm making the same money and home every week. I haven't posted much about it here because RBI requires two years driving experience and that's not the focus of TruckingTruth. Should TT ever decide to branch into information for experienced drivers or making changes after establishing yourself I might post more about it.

Brett and the Moderators here are dead-on right about sticking with your first company. I'd add that it's imperative that potential drivers research their prospective companies diligently and especially the specific positions they'll be in. My doing this has resulted in Schneider turning out to be everything I expected and my new position with RBI, exactly what I expected.

Be safe!

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

Thanks for the reply and CONGRATS! Yeah I actually want to work for Melton and quite honestly am impressed with their driver satisfaction. RBI a flatbed company or heavy haul?

Dry van, no hazmat. But everyone I've met who drives for Melton speaks highly of them.

HAZMAT:

Hazardous Materials

Explosive, flammable, poisonous or otherwise potentially dangerous cargo. Large amounts of especially hazardous cargo are required to be placarded under HAZMAT regulations

Dry Van:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
