double-quotes-start.png

Goodmorning everyone! Just thought I would send a quick update! It’s been a rough 2 weeks. My truck has broken down 3 times and I’ve lost some loads due to that but I made it!!! Thank you all for all the encouragement and help! It’s so empowering to see other ladies and gentleman doing what I’m doing. Have a great day y’all and stay safe #truckerlyfe

Congrats, Alexus!!

So, who DID you end up going with? Sure doesn't look like a Western Express truck, but it DOES look like a flatbed, LoL!

Major kudos, m'lady!

3 days in!

So I been driving for 3 days now! Alley docking is hard but learning to be patient and also very great for the other helpful truckers. My truck decided to breakdown on me so currently waiting for that to get fixed. It’s been a whirlwind but I’m trying to stay motivated :)

Are you still planning to go flatbed?

Calling all Female flatbed drivers or any flatbed drivers!

So I decided to go with western express and they only have flatbed running out of Texas. I’m nervous but excited at the same time! Any advice is much appreciated. I’m nervous about strapping down thousands of pounds of weight and driving a flatbed in general but I know it can be done!

Advice please

1. How close are you to paying off the balance?

2. Does the school have a finance program?

3. Do you have prehire letters from any trucking companies? If so, do they have tuition reimbursement?

If you’re 100% committed to this and you’re doing well in school, take the layoff as an opportunity to accelerate your launch into truck driving. Tell your instructors that’s what you wanna do, that you really want to work with them on this and, in six months you’ll be making good $.

Or, if there’s no financial responsibility by withdrawing, sure you can go a different way.

I hope this helps.

I put a $500 deposit down but I still have $2000 to go. They have a payment plan but I wanted to get working as soon as possible. In order to test, which I’m ready to do so I have to pay that balance to use their truck and time to test. I’m pre hired with Schneider and they do have tuition reimbursement

So I have received my CDL permit and been in school for a couple weeks now. My job laid me off with a 2 day notice and I am close to to being able to test. I’m unable to test unless I pay my balance off. Am I better off withdrawing from the school and just going through a company sponsored program? Thanks for advice in advance !

Some companies including Prime wont take you once you start another school. By quitting you prove you wont stay

Be sure to ask when you look around

So it’s like a fast track program that’s technically not a school they just give you the tools and training to pass the exam.
