Kody S.'s Bio

What's up Trucking Truth! I am a very ambitious, competitive, outgoing, 20 year old, Kansas made and raise father of a gorgeous 7 month year old daughter. I got into trucking after my first job where the first day at the end of my shift I was told to pack my bags because im going to Madison, Wisconsin the next day. I had other interest I had as a job, but that is what started my interest in trucking. I finally decided to make it a career around 4 months ago and ever since then I've been balls to the wall studying (on here), calling recruiters, and showing my commitment to everyone that has been around me of what I plan on doing with my life. In my opinion, people don't give truck drivers enough credit... Truckers THEMSELVES I don't think give themselves enough credit. Anyways if u wanna get to know me or have questions you would like answered, shoot me a private message and I'll get back to ya.

Werner

Hello everyone! Im super sorry I haven't been on here in forever! I have been super busy with truck driving school and my little girl. Ok, down to business... I have gone back in forth with who imma go with right outta school... A lot of companies are very interested in me and I am very interested in me and the one i choose might actually surprise u.. I choose Werner! Melton decided to go with another applicant for an unexplained reason and every one else just doesn't have the combined hometime and pay Werner can offer me. It was a very hard choice between Werner and Schneider National. Both had my heart but Werner it is. Thank u TruckingTruth. I would not be here without this site... I start orientation the 29th and will give day to day updates once orientation starts. Thank u again :)

She is 21. Leave it at that. I guess Kody you have been married or you would know better than to assume any women are over 21.

In guessing u r being sarcastic ? Lol

Ok, no one take this as a joke, but I guess this kinda is a trick question in a way... If a female truck driver comes over to your truck and offers u company, is she still considered a lot lizard???

TMC or Maverick?

I just finished training with Maverick flatbed division, I can tell you that they dont play they are very serious. They have very good training, u stay on campus they have a hotel on their property wuth vans u can use, they have a gym an a basketball goal plus a walking track, its a real nice place but you will have a roomate. You do classroom for a week they feed you the first week an give you $50 they only feed lunch your on your own for breakfast an dinner, you do hands on training the next week, that last day of hands on you find out who your trainer is. Overall the training is great but some of the reasons they send people home is petty but i understand.

Thank your man! I've really REALLY been wanting to hear something about Maverick on here! Especially their flatbed division! Any other info. u can give me?

Lol idk bout the whole jumping or climbing a trailer thing but I'd definately brush up haha. I have been non-stop studying and preparing for trucking school to make sure the ONLY thing I have to worry about is learning to drive a semi...

TMC or Maverick?

My girlfriend's ex actually works for TMC, and he told me if I do end up getting accepted by TMC to come to orientation and training prepared... He said TMC makes it tough on you and really sees what you r capable of during orientation and training.
