Dry Van OTR Training Knight Transportation

So I was able to get in contact with him again and he said that there's no openings until 2 weeks from Monday so that puts it at February 5th. I know that they're a good company. I mean I know I've got the job because they hired me and I got my first paycheck however every trucker nose sitting at home not in a truck means you're not getting paid. I think that's the part that's driving me insane is because of the fact that I'm home and not in a truck and it's been 2 months. At least now I have a date supposedly because what he said was there's a possible opening on February 5th. Even though I have a date, I'm still going to keep in contact. Don't want them to think that I lost interest you know? Anyway, thank you Errol!!!!!!

Dry Van OTR Training Knight Transportation

Thank you for the replies. Yes I'm a female. I did express to the terminal scheduler that gender wouldn't be an issue with me but they politely shot that down. I was told I would receive information from them today so I reached out early this morning. He told me in text message that he didn't know anything yet, that he'll find out if there's an opening for Monday later this afternoon. I messaged him around 4:30 and I've not received a reply.

Also the duffle bag I have packed and it's about the same size so thank you for relieving that stressful thought of not being able to take everything. I'm doing my best to keep calm and level headed and I'm doing my best to keep in contact with them every two to three days. Someone I know said I should try and get in contact with hr but I'm not entirely sure if that would solve anything, more or less cause issues.

I'm still waiting getting the run around of yes we have someone to it fell through.

Dry Van OTR Training Knight Transportation

My name is Cassidy and I was recently hired with my Transportation located in Portland. I had decided to do OTR Drive van on the lower 48. I was hired on the 5th of December of 2023. My phone contact with my driver coordinator of the terminal there in portland. I'm still not even in a truck yet and that's the issue. I've been in contact with him several times and the only answer that I've been getting is that we've been working on it. Yes this is my first trucking career but I know something doesn't feel right about it right now. I understand that the holidays have just passed and that most of the trainers have taken off for holiday. There was one other person in orientation with me and he's been in a truck since about 2-3 weeks ago. The driver coordinator I spoke with said that there's somebody else in front of me who is going to be in a truck coming up this Monday. It takes about 4 weeks of training which I understand but they are either waiting for a female trainer or a local driver to train me for otr. The issue is now I'm getting the runaround saying that it'll be another month before I'm in a truck. I'm staying in contact with him I'm trying to get some information but the only information that is released to me is we're doing our best I'm sorry this isn't the answer that you want to hear but you'll be in a truck soon enough. I try and tell them that I'm eager to get into the truck and that I need to be able to pay my bills however it feels like I'm not going anywhere. It even came down to one of the topics of me being flown out to another terminal so I can be trained. However if I'm flown out to another terminal I won't be able to carry all of my stuff that I need with me for my truck. I'm not entirely sure what to do and I want to do OTR lower 48 for personal reasons and personal gain. I'm not entirely sure how often this is that new hire ons get the runaround and the whole waiting. Just seems a little far-fetched. Any other company around here doesn't do lower 48 without having at least 6 months of experience and I do not want to leave Knight Transportation. Looking for advice please one trucker to another.
