This is my second go round with CDL school The last time I was unable to test because I had an emergency back home. I have since cleared life issues up and back at it again. I had applied at every school I could find even though some of them left that wrenching feeling in my stomach I was going to go to the ends of the earth to earn my CDL. I had almost given up when a good friend mentioned to me that SRT (Southern Refrigerated) had just opened a brand new school and that it might be worth calling them. I couldn't seem to get any information so in desperation I went to the website and used the contact us form to ask about it. First thing the next morning I received several emails from them telling me to please go and apply on their website and then call "Katie" back. I did the application, but then had to run an errand so didn'tsrt-top-logo.png

get around to calling her right away. I was waiting for my husband at the bank and my cell rang.. I see that it says Arkansas and I went "could it be?" So I politely answered. Yup it was her!! This was the very first call back I had gotten in almost 4 months. I was excited, but nervous that it was going to be the same issue with lack of job history. I talked with her, we laughed, I asked questions, she asked questions. She explained they had a 'serious' lack of female trainers until March. I kind of got sad.. Then she put me on hold for a sec.. When she came back she said How's march class for ya? I said "I was hoping for sooner, but I will take it" It was that easy. I have talked to a few lady drivers and do not feel as this company falls in that negative atmosphere. I am very excited to be accepted and am very dedicated to getting my CDL. I will try and keep everyone posted but I have a while before I will actually leave. This gives me time to study, tie up some loose ends and prepare completely for that Journey from Idaho to Arkansas.

Congratulations Lil Spud!

I see SRT trucks all over the place in my travels. I also go by their headquarter in Arkansas all the time - it looks very impressive.
