Check out The Healthy Trucker for a ton of free tips and exercises for truckers. I'm not on a truck yet, but I'm already doing many of the routines on there.

Starting with Beverage Distribution: Good or Bad Idea

An Averitt driver suggested this route for me as well. The local bottler had already filled all their positions is the only reason I didn't do it.

Ovcercoming a Lack of "Verifiable" Employment History when applying for Company CDL Schools?

Much appreciated, Brett. I'll definitely read that article as going private seems to be the better option for me.

Getting my license with a foreign driver license.

All that matters is the state in which you get your CDL. Hope that helps. Happy Thanksgiving to you, and an early welcome back to the states!!!

Ovcercoming a Lack of "Verifiable" Employment History when applying for Company CDL Schools?

Thanks for the suggestions Brett & Steve L.

I do have money that could be used for private school. I worry that once I pay for the school companies are still going to say no because of the lack of verifiable work history. Then I'm out the money and stuck with a couple thousand $$$ piece of plastic.

Brett; the recruiter for Squire told she has not been able to get anyone with similar issues approved. I guess it's just too difficult and near impossible for them to be sure. Probably an insurance thing, maybe.

My plan is to get this school bus gig, which will get me a cdl of some kind or other; work that for the school year and reapply to the company-sponsored training, or go private.

Here's a thought. Turn off your CB, stop talking to these people at the restaurant, and stop eavesdropping on other peoples' conversation in parking lots.

*mic drop*

Haha! Just bust in' yer chops, Fats.

Seriously though, those situations can be avoided IMHO.

I'm in the same predicament with "no" verifiable work history, although I worked at the same employer since 1992. After being let go in '09 I chose to help my parents. They provided everything for me so I might hold onto my savings.

I've been turned down by Knight who said I needed at least 6-12 months recent history.

Which company-sponsored schools have turned you down?
