Veriha honest review

As of now, it's a hurry up and wait game. I have a couple people who are going to look at the bike Friday. If it sells I'm looking at early October for a start date. I looked into the 160 driving academy in Columbus as well as spoke to Knight transportation. I still think for company sponsored I will go with either Veriha or Schneider. If I can get into the 160 driving academy that would work as well and hopefully go work at Sysco as they are 30 minutes from me. I will update when I finally sell my motorcycle

President’s mandate given earlier today

What makes you think so besides propaganda?

I was going to ask that same question....

Let me state this first I am against mandatory anything really as the constitution forbids it.

As a healthcare worker currently I can tell you that, that statement is true. The symptoms won't be as bad, but it also varies from person to person.

What trucking schools in California take Federal Student Aid?

I'm in the same boat here in Ohio, but there is always company paid. I am going that route and at least you would have a guaranteed job afterward.

Veriha honest review

double-quotes-start.png

Honestly I might just go with Veriha. It seems like a good fit for me at the moment ... Now on to sell my motorcycle so I can survive until I get paid in week 3

double-quotes-end.png

I'm behind you on that, Christopher! If I recall correctly, TheTrucker.com recently featured one of their drivers; feel free to search their site for the article~!!

Their 'commitment' is a bit longer than some companies; that's the 'only' thing that stands out, to 'little ole ' me....!'

Best wishes;

~ Anne ~

ps: Getting paid by week 3 is in fact, a plus, good sir! Losing the bike kinda bums.... ever consider a title loan?!?! In lieu of sale??

It's a 92 so I doubt that would fly for what I need. I'm also in talks with my car company to defer a payment or two. Actually the commitment to Veriha is only 6 months

What about Millis? There is a terminal in Ohio, they do CDL training, and they also offer regional driving scenarios.

double-quotes-end.png

I mentioned them.. as well.. can't get answers, re: Wilson & Millis from the good man, Christopher!!

Those would be my 'first' training company choices, as well, Pack..

~ Anne ~

I was finally able to apply to Millis, apparently my holdup was that it is now September not August so I kept missing employment gaps.....as far as Wilson they did not have any regional/dedicated in my area. The other companies you listed before I will keep them in my pocket but I'm pretty sure that you need experience.

Hogan.

Get a TWIC, Hazmat, and Tanker endorsements and you will have the job you are seeking with Hogan.

Containers. Hogan is expanding in the container market out of Columbus.

I don't think they do CDL training, though.

Did you look at Mast Trucking, here in Ohio?

~ Anne ~

ps: Didn't Wilson approve (like on) you, from the application, here?

double-quotes-end.png

double-quotes-end.png

I called them and I am an hour away from their hiring area. They would not make an exception. They asked if I was willing to move there

double-quotes-end.png

Dang... yeah, I've heard they are 'sticklers' on that. No Wilson? Why didn't THAT work for you ?!? Millis ??

Try Dutch Maid? Also, another Ohio company is Armellini Express...but it's FLORAL, and mostly (if not all; not sure...) 'touch' freight. They're big here in Ohio, too. Based in Florida, of course...however!

One last .. back pocket ~ Witte Bros. ???

Let us know!

~ Anne ~

ps: sorry not including links, until healed, LoL..!

I just applied for dutch maid. I'm still considering Veriha. It seems like a perfect fit for me, but my girlfriend is not to happy. Lol

How is this company to work for?

double-quotes-end.png

Marc Lee worked for them for a tad bit; look up his name/diary ... I'd link it, but it's too much on this PC with a torn r/cuff, atm! You'll find it. Glad to see you are still pursuing your career!

Best wishes;

~ Anne ~

I just read all of it, kind of scared me away from them. Awe well...try and find another company I guess.

Thanks you guys, see even ministers need reminded about the Word of God from time to time.

Now I'm worried

I know becoming a professional driver. Ones with some apprehension, but I am being told I'm to much of a "people person" to drive a truck. I actually enjoy my alone time a lot more than people think. Being a minister I do talk with a lot of people, but when it comes to down time I enjoy the peace and quiet.

Trucking companies and COVID Vaccine

This whole conversation could have been stopped with if you want the vaccine get it if you don't want it do not. No guilt no blaming just as simple as that. It is a free country (or used to be), full of free thinkers (again used to be), that rationalized everything.

Permit

My girlfriends father is a ex truck driver, he retired from the teamsters, He is checking with some people he knows to see if they can train me locally so I can get home on a regular basis. If not I will be attending a CDL school. I realize that a company sponsored CDL school is best for training, but if I can get a job driving and get consistent home time with training, as a minister I have to take that option. If it does not work out I will stay at least a year, and then move on.

Permit

double-quotes-start.png

I passed my permit test!!!! Although it is just a written test I was a bundle of nerves! The first thing when I go into the license bureau a guy said he has been driving for 20 years and wished he picked something different...Not a problem I see people like that in every career honestly

A big shout out and thanks to Brett for this wonderful site and The High Road training by Brett could not have passed without it. Thank you, very truly thank you

Christopher! , IMHO .... that's the 'hard part!!' I got that far myself, twice.. .LoL.

Congrats, good sir. Great to have you here, in Trucking Truth!!

To the guy that said 'wish he'd picked something different ...' was that Johnothan's dad, perhaps ?!?!?

Fed-up With the Trucking Industry

If I am getting this right (I am not a driver yet), you ignored all advice on here about dollar accounts, you are angry that you failed and are blaming everyone and everything else besides yourself. I hate yo tell you but in every profession you will struggle with that attitude. The best attitude is treat others the way you want to be treated (Golden Rule, Matthew 7:12), always look to yourself for ways to improve instead of pointing your finger because you will always have 3 pointing back at you, and finally if you go in with a ****y attitude and an attitude that you things are never your fault you will fail at absolutely every industry you work in.

Godspeed on your next endeavour, I pray that you will find happiness, but as a minister I can tell you happiness can only be found in Christ
