I hate Jeans

I am supposed to start at Veriha on October 18th, and am deciding what is best to wear (silly I know but I'm a worrier). My biggest problem is I hate Jeans, like loathe them. If I show up in cargo parts or even khakis would that be a problem? I bought a bright orange sweatshirt and a flannel shirt, am really in need of what to bring/wear

And to Chris, if you go to Knight, make sure to tell your recruiter that Davy referred you so he will get the referral bonus.

Davy, try to communicate your full name, driver number to Chris so the bonus goes to you. I don't know how you can do that, but somebody else knows and can post the appropriate information.

I didnt even think of that, I always try to just paint an accurate picture of the company. My email is in my profile but richard.cranium666@gmail.com. Shoot me an email and Ill throw you my name and driver id. If you give me your name and contact info in the email, Ill pass it on to my recruiter directly and he will get something done with it. Im on really good terms with him and we still frequently talk.

Sorry Davy A, I spoke to Knight a couple of weeks ago, I told them my situation but they said since there is such a backlog in their school they went ahead and signed me up for mid November. This was at the beginning of September. I don't know if I would go that route just because of the wait. Probably end up with Veriha since it is regional and only a 6 month contract

So I sold my bike tonight and now have funds to last me through training. My decision is with Veriha, Schneider(won't get a check for 6 weeks), or Knight.

GPS???

You don't want just any old Atlas. You want the one for motor carriers. It has additional sections with tons of important information you will need. It also shows you all the truck routes. I prefer the one with a spiral binder. It lays flat which makes it much easier to use.

I got the semi trucking one!

"Ehhhhhh, Haven't you heard of an atla Back in my day, we did it by pay phone call, word of mouth, cb and an Atlas! All y'all steering wheel holders are the exact same" *ptooooooey*

Lol I was thinking here we go. I am old enough to remember using maps, however, gps is so much easier but I will also use the mcnally atlas

GPS???

Today I was given a CB, an inverter and a cooker by an old trucker. He also told me to buy a separate trucker gps and not rely on my Qualcomm one. Is this true? If so they are very expensive

Veriha honest review

I work for Millis, we have a terminal in Trenton and I know they need midwest regional guys now. Not sure where your located but they also have local guys in the area if you dont like regional. Also we run the Miller brewery in trenton and they hire spotters as well if your interested in that as well. I did a diary a few years back as well as another driver still with us, pete e pothole. I cant speak for any other training programs but Millis is very picky and because of that classes are small. It will be you and 4 other students max, so tons of driving time and tons of backing time. We also have a terminal in columbus if your closer to there, but the class is in trenton.

That sounds cool, I spoke with them before I think and they could not garauntee I would be home on Sundays. I live an hour south of Columbus
