Dress Code...

I am just horrified to see how some of the trucker ladies dress! Some wear high heels, dresses,,, no, I am not kidding!!!! Short skirts, no bras, flip flops... Makes me sick to see these ladies prancing around at the fuel islands with this kind of attire... There should be a dress code for drivers who represent these companies.. I am sure they are asking for real trouble when they dress this way and if they cannot do their job, they don't belong doing it in the first place... I have gotten into some really sticky situations in which I never asked anyone for help, just made it work.. This is just drawing attention to yourself and into some real danger.... Just my opinion.....

Just another low bridge strike after following GPS

So then, Why doesn't the city put up a better sign? There has to be something wrong there when two a month are hitting it...

What did you do before becoming a truck driver?

Wow! A Math teacher! Wow, that is awesome! With 25 years of working swing shifts in two Paper mills, I took a buyout and got an early retirement. I went out to become a farrier and Blacksmith, got sick of bad clients and really bad horses, so I then went to driving School bus, no money there and really bratty kids so I decided to become a trucker! I also am an artist who teaches classes on weekends in the winter months.. so now I am truly enjoying what I so love and found my final career!

How to get those miles

Wow! That is one great DM!! That is what I truly believe, treat them right and if they don't treat you right in return, it would then be time to find a new company who will treat you right and respect the fact that you are not a complainer! There should be more drivers like you, who just do their job and take the good with the bad and deal with it.... Keep on truckin' and safe travels!

Dash cam

Your employer may be willing to purchase one for you, so it doesn't hurt to ask! If not, I would highly recommend buying the best one you can afford.. You get what you pay for. A dash cam will save your butt and prove your innocence! Don't put off getting one and check a few websites or truck stops to find the best deal.. I found that sometimes truck stops have things even more cheaply, believe it or not. Here is a video to check out, pretty darned good one at that! http://www.livetrucking.com/this-frustrated-truck-driver-uses-this-dash-cam-video-to-prove-he-had-the-right-of-way/

Cheating trucker

I am reading this post late, but if you are still seeing him.. I would agree with all the ladies on here, dump him quickly! Once a cheater, always a cheater!

Iim 50 i dont look 50 i want to drive do any companys provide child care during training

If you need childcare while you are in training, what are going to do when you are out on the road for days at a time? I think you need to re think this if you have small children and don't have someone who can watch your kids and be there all the time...

Concerned about physical requirements.

Why on earth would anyone consider being a Flatbedder if you cannot handle it? Is it the extra money or what?! As far as I see, the money isn't worth getting hurt over! If you are lifting something so heavy that you cannot handle it, you don't belong doing it at all... No one is going to help you with it, and if it is windy and cold, you are going to struggle even more... Go with a Van and make it a bit easier on yourself.. Just my two cents!

New Driver from Pittsburgh!

Hi Trish, This is a really big change in our lives to become a truck driver! Welcome aboard! I would suggest going into this with all you have! It is tough to get through, I know it was for me, learning all these things and there is plenty to learn and we never stop learning. As far as going on a long road trip, first you have to get through your schooling, go on the road with a trainer, and then after all that will be assigned your own truck. There are companies who allow pets, but if you ask me, I highly advise against bring your cat, especially two of them. If they are not used to being in a small confined space, they won't like it and unless they are brought up that way they will never really get used to it, and there is a risk of them escaping from your truck and you will lose them somewhere.. But, that is my opinion.. I would only bring a dog along who I raised as a puppy starting out in the truck.. Not all pets are good for trucking. Some are more laid back and would probably do better than others. So, that being said, Is just my opinion..
