Hello truckers,

I will be going to orientation this Tuesday for comcar (mct) there tell me that I will have to do another DOT physical and I know that whenever I get there I'm going to be nervous and my blood pressure will be high what would they do if it's high whenever there given me the physical,

will they send me home for a few weeks to go to the doctor and try to get it under control, or will they just send me home for good and either way will that be on my permanent record that will stop me from going to work for another company.

Please give me as much advice as you all can!!!!!!

Questions to ask the recruiter

Hello truckers,

I need some advise from experienced drivers on want to ask the recruiters, to cut down on too many surprises when I go to work I know the basic questions like what kind of equipment does the truck have APU on them and inverters and I know to ask about the pay if it is the same loaded or empty and how many miles they average a week.

I graduated from school on 7 October I'm thinking seriously about going to work for either comcar ( mct ) or avette does anybody have anything good or bad to say about either of these companies.

Any information will be greatly appreciated thanks again and drive safely.

Central Refrigeration.

Danial Thanks for the list can you explain more of what you mean by this please I don't get it, maybe I am just over thinking it, or it could be because I am an FNG.

I would have never thought of a broom, is this a push broom or one I would use around my house?

Brett thanks for the thoughts I have been the trainer at my company for about the last 3 years. I know how new guys can get it in there head that something dose not make sense or they think it should be different. It can make their life and the trainers life overly complicated. I will do my best not to be that guy. I love challenges I am looking forward to this new adventure immensely. Awesome site by the way, Glad I found it.

Fatsquatch whats WVC? I hope we can meet up sometime.

Advice on power inverters

Hello truckers,

does anybody out there have any advice on which power inverters are the best I would like to find one that plugs up to the cigarette lighter because the company will not allow you to hardwire it to the battery I would like to be able to plug up a small refrigerator, microwave, small TV, and may be a tailgating satellite system I'm thinking around 1500 W.

Thanks for any information and drive safely

The best company to work for new drivers

Hello truckers, I will be getting my CDL's the first of October 2014 and I know that there is a lot of companies that hire new drivers but which one is the best. I have been looking at USA trucking, Averitte, Central refrigerated and a few more what the recruiters have been telling me for all the companies is that training will be four to six weeks and then I would get my own Truck and then the pay would be between $.28 a mile up to $.32 a mile and averitte starts new drivers out at $.37 a mile common sense would tell you to take the job that paid the most, does anybody out there have a comment and any of the these companies, or any other companies that might be good for a new driver. Thanks a lot everybody drive safe!!!
