Considering A Career
Navy Veteran. 35 year electronics technician looking for a change in career paths compliments of my soon to be former employer. ZERO experience with a big truck, so training is a must have. I have some fond memories of picking up two truckers that worked for Wolf Coast to Coast, they put my vehicle in the rocking chair and they took us coast to coast from Oakland, CA to Gettysburg, PA. These guys gave my two girls their CB handles. I wish I could remember the other driver's name.... great guys! I know there are good drivers out there! It is really a toss up between flatbed with TMC or reefer with Stevens Transport or tanker with Prime. I know that tanker operations with a rookie can be a challenge! Never been one to back away from a challenge. My concern with TMC is slinging those tarps over the load. Can this 56 year old "carcass" handle that kind of exertion? Each has it's pros and cons and all constructive criticisms are welcomed. Just do me a favor and be truthful with me. Recruiters have the job of making their company look like they walk on water; the drivers know better. Hence, truthful exchanges appreciated: Good, bad and ugly! This is something that I have been wanting to do for a number of years, so with the shortage of drivers and the career change being eminent, I figure why not go for it. Been married for 36 years, so the wife is aware...as well as supportive.
