TransForce class A or class B??

Nope...just me and a 2 wheel dolly. It was very demanding. I would come home pretty stiff and sore (but I could tell it was at least building up more noticeable muscle lol)

So no pallet jacks? I’m wondering if I’ll really be able to do this even just to have a job for now and get a better one once I have more experience. I’m tough, but I currently have busted up hip joints. Broken bones floating around in both hip joints. I really don’t know how I passed my DOT physical. God has really been involved in this whole process for sure

Hey there!

I worked for Transforce for a bit. I was trying to put my Class A to use, but didn't have the experience required to take on those positions. I was placed on the assignment of delivering wine and spirits in a straight truck. It was HEAVY touch, and that was the main reason I got out of it (started getting nagging elbow pain).

Good company from my experience, but an even better opportunity opened up for me 😁😁😁

Good luck!

Hey y’all, I just got done talking with TransForce and they’re willing to hire me! There’s two situations they’d hire me for. 1. Class B local box truck unloading for produce carriers, here in Colorado Springs where I live. $21 an hr 6am-6pm M-F Do this job until I can move up to Henderson area for their new graduate Class A position OR 2. Just take the job up in Henderson about a 1.5 hr drive for the class A new graduate position $33 hr touch freight for produce 4-6am start time and 10-14 hours a day M-F

My concerns are with finding a babysitter for my kids and the travel time before I can move up to that area. Also, what do y’all think about TransForce?

Thank you!!

I started with JB Hunt on a dedicated route for Anheuser Busch. Great pay, home daily and they worked with my limited experience (only 3 months). Very thankful it came up, they may be worth looking up depending on the OPs location.

Hay Trevor W. and welcome to Trucking Truth!

I'm curious . . . what IS the better opportunity that turned up for you?!??! Maybe it could benefit Shantiwa !!!!

Shantiwa .... I agree with all the above guys on this one.. especially the COMMUTE time. Tom's is 35 to 40 min's one way; often he brings the t/t home. Saves US time, sleep, fuel, and his clock. That CDL with the A job? Um... I know you'd LOVE TO, but ... I wouldn't. Too many variables and unexptected with kids, being far away!

Ask the guys here; I'm still waiting for my youngest to 'age up' so I can drive, even though he is perfectly sufficient at home alone. It's a mom thing.

I hear ya!

Keep looking, girl. IDK about the box truck job .... so hopefully you'll heed the above, and await Rob T.s wisdom, m'lady.

No interest in buses, though?

Take care!
