I got sent home by Con-way Freight

You are truly one of kind MG. Some males are intimidated by a female such as yourself. The reason is they supposedly can't run with the big dogs. It isn't just with trucking either. A female can go toe to toe with any male in anything and as is more often the case best him. Some males that you may encounter in your travels will try to get the best of you, but there are a great deal more of males who like to see the passion and drive that a female brings to the table. Those guys should be intimidated. It scares them. I back you 120%. Show them what females are made of, MG. Keep on truckin!

MG, after reading all this I believe you are the meaning of adversity. You have a great supporting cast here. As a young soon to be rookie-in-training, I consider your hardships as inspiring. You are representing the trucking community and all the female drivers now and the future ones. As a young gun, one thing I have been told everyday is to keep on, keepin on. This may be a biker motto but I believe it has been used by truckers all over. "Ride to live, Live to ride." Best of luck to you and Keep on Keepin on!

Knight Transportation

Knight does look like it will be for me. I have considered Indy as a possible location ,although if I am not mistaken, I believe Green Bay also has a facility. The more I read about them, the more I like what I see. Knight is the top choice and only one at this point. Thank you!

Knight Transportation

Lately I have been leaning toward Knight Transportation for training. They seem to offer what I am interested in overall, in comparision to other schools. For where I am currently located, I am not sure where the closest school to me is. Anyone who either drives for Knight or knows a liitle about them, could please offer some input for me?

Advice on Trucking overall

I am currently in Saul Ste Marie in the Upper Peninsula. Over the past week I have been given options of different schools though I am still unsure which one to attend. I have heard such ones as Schneider, JB Hunt, Liberty to name a few..

With all things considered, and given my current situation, how soon would I need to find a school and begin my career?

I appreciate that info Brett. I'm as excited as I can be to get started. I know I have a ways to go and a lot to learn, but I am ready to go full steam ahead. My dad was a driver for many years. When I told him this is what I wished to pursue he was very excited. He gave me a lot of advice and offered his opinion on it. He said my best bet is to look for a school that will teach me all I need to know to make this dream a reality. I am still searching and reading as much information as possible in the meantime.

Ok I will do that. My next question is this. If I attend a school here in Michigan and once I am done with training, will the company I will be employed with be only a statewide position or will it be cross country? Will it depend on where I attend or is it the same almost everywhere?

I have read on this great site about company-sponsored training. Although it stated that it is an option/choice, it should be the first?

Advice on Trucking overall

Hi guys. My name is Sean. I live in Michigan and I have decided to pursue a career in the trucking industry. I have spent the past few years trying to decide what to pursue in life. I realized that I want to experience what my dad had experienced as a driver. My current situation is this. I have no job or money to afford any schooling or traveling. The nearest trucking schools closest to my current residence are a great distance from me. I will do anything to make becoming a driver a reality. I am 26 years old and I have nothing holding me back from doing so. I have done some research but I am finding it tough on deciding where to go for training. Where do I go from here and how do I get there?
