Newish Driver , questions/opinions

I looked into Od and I’d have to get Doubles/Triples and Hazmat from the looks of it, I’m not opposed to that , I do know hazmat can be timely, so I’ll look in to that. I just spoke with Cfi, the lady sent me applink , looks like they have a home daily for Advance auto and Carequest or something along those lines outta Shawnee, do y’all have referalls, if so I can put ur info down if you’d like.

Newish Driver , questions/opinions

Hello, so I decided to make a career change summer of 2020, my previous background was warehouse/manufacturing and mostly dead end. So I’ve had my Class A for a year, and it seems like the jobs I have worked seem great over the phone and pre hire and then I start…. And every time (3 to be exact) red flags start popping up and usually progresses. I’m curious what’s acceptable and not acceptable. Am I being to picky? 1. The condition of the truck. From no headlight/bad wiring, no seatbelt, water pouring they the roof when it started raining. Being sent to a distribution center with bubbled trailer tires and some not even reading any pressure and being told that I need to stop somewhere asap or I won’t even make it 30 miles. Being told not to stop at weigh stations that I’ll be fine. Having shrapnel sticking though my seat and cutting my leg and ripping my jeans every time I get outta the truck, and the list goes on. This has been my luck so far. Sometimes I feel like I should just suck it up and be grateful I have a job and sometimes I just wanna throw my cdl in the trash and forget about it. I want to be local and it’s hard to get anyone to give me a chance and if they do they want to pay McDonalds wages and offer insurance for 800 a month and it’s shot insurance. Does it get better or am I just looking in the wrong places. I often feel like it’s because I’m new and am a target for some of these **** companies. Any advice on how someone interviews and what things you say and look for. Thanks and sorry for the vent.
