Does anyone know- are there many women drivers at Knight? I mean- like just the industry average? The recruiter sounded almost discouraging as in "You WILL be paired up with a female trainer, and it will take a long, long time to get one." Sorry! Maybe she was just stressed about something else. That's probably it- just wondering.

Lynn, in my three years driving I'd like to believe I see more women driving a truck now than when I started.

But in those three years, on Trucking Truth the Lady Trainer issue still comes up. Lady trainers are like hen's teeth. Ya know what I mean? However I think a few TT female contributors had well behaved male instructors. They may stop in here.

I know good guys abound, but for personal reasons- it's better. I rescued this abused dog from a shelter a few years ago, and I'm the nicest dog mom in the world, but he still flinches and cowers when I move chairs or get a new trash-bag. I've only treated him with love and patience, but no matter how long I have him he still does it.

I know CFI has a few women trainers. But most companies have shortages of female trainer to female studens. We are here to help. Good luck and keep us posted.

I wasn't "urging" you to go that way, and personal reasons is a fine reason to look for the female trainers.

BTW, I've had similar dogs. one was scared to death to go through an open sliding door for the first few years. A second one would only stay in his safe place under a lamp table. We can only show love whether they snap out of it or not.

BTW #2, I'm from LA area, living in Memphis the last ten years & really miss that desert country.
