Medical marijuana question

This might actually work out better for me. I had been thinking about trying to go for a dock to driver program instead so I will do more research on that first before making any decisions. Thanks for the help guys

I read that the testing goes back about 3 months

If I pay for the test wouldn't that be completely independent of failing a drug test at work?

I don't have to get one just thought it would be a good idea before I apply

I Think It's Time to Move On

I have an LTL question guys. Do pretty much all the companies make you start driving on nites and extra board till you get senority? I assume that is how it works? I am a morning person so I dont think I would fare well driving at nite but I think I would like the work

Medical marijuana question

Hey guys, been lurking on here for a few months reading and watching you tube etc. I have been waiting for Oct for personal and professional reasons to start applying to trucking companies. I was going to check with Roehl, Knight (close to me) and CFI for starters and branch out depending on the answers I get etc.

One question I do have. My record is clean and my driving record is very clean but earlier this year I tried a medical marijuana card to see if it would help me sleep. It did but I didnt think the benefits were significant so I cancelled the card and it has been close to 4 months since I tried it.

I didnt know if this is something that I should mention when I call or not? With it being Medical I didnt know if that would be something they could even check or not? I am not ashamed of it ( it is legal here and I didnt do it very much) but I dont want to alarm them or scare them out of hiring me.

A lot of medical stuff is private because of the HIPA laws etc so I wasn’t sure what to do. I was planning on paying for my own follicle test before I make any decisions

Thanks for the help.

Larry, If you dont mind what made you pick CFI over Knight? Might help. I have a medical procedure next month. After that I am going to start talking to recruiters. I was leaning towards Knight and Roehl but I will check into CFI as well

Thanks Rick

This might be a stupid question. Do you have to drive at night? I am a morning person and dont think I would function well if I had to that often

Thanks for all the help guys. I believe Knight is based out of KC too. Looks like I have more options than I realized. I thought it would be a neat experience to do over the road for a few months or so but then I would want to get home at least every weekend if possible.

Thx guys. Just doing research on companies at this point. I am not asking which is the “best” company. I was asking which one might have weekly home time in the KC area.

I plan on doing company paid training

I have been doing a lot of research on a lot of different aspects of each company. Some have better insurance, some pay for you to get trained and some dont etc. Went to a truckstop nearby yest. And talked to a few drivers.

One thing that does seem hard to find out is which are more OTR and which have more regional/dedicated routes?

One prime driver I talked to said he doesnt get home often with prime but he did with Schneider but he thinks Prime is better. Does anyone have any insight on this aspect?

My wife and I are very close but I would prefer to go with a company that has a better chance of getting me home weekly, etc vs. OTR

Thanks!

That’s is a great idea. It almost seems like they try to keep you from finding out.

I will check into CFI as well

Thanks!

Lol. I have been trying to do research but it seems like I might be better waiting a couple months till I am ready to apply and then get all the info. I did find out my wife can get her own insurance and it is pretty good. She needs it more than I do so I could get something cheap, etc

I need good insurance for my wife and I and good prescription coverage

I know I probably won’t get it as good as I have it now but it still needs to be good
