Question about communicating with recruiters

Hey Old School, thanks for the feedback. I understand that the home time is not exactly set in stone, and I understand that flexibility is needed in many aspects of the job. I currently have a CDL permit at hand and have completed the DOT physical. I already have a school in mind with a pre-hire and tuition sponsorship with a company. I'm still further exploring other company sponsored options. I've been looking into this career for a few years, and this site has been very helpful.

Question about communicating with recruiters

Hey guys. I am looking to start a career in trucking and have fulfilled several avenues in the process. I am aware that there are situations where what a recruiter tells you, or states about a particular role can be misrepresented. For example, there are cases that I have heard of, where new drivers are told one thing about actual time on the road (say 7-10 days per run), but are later to find out in for example orientation that their run will be longer (i.e. 10-14).

My question is this, is it ok or common practice to get details about a particular position verified in writing from a recruiter, so that it's on paper? If so, to what extent of the job description can I request from a recruiter to verify in writing? Or would this approach hinder me in the job seeking process in any way?

Perhaps this topic has been covered before, so if there's a link somewhere from the site that could give me some guidance, that would be helpful. Thanks!
