I don't want to give up

Well , I started my training with CR england witch I didn't finish because they were being pushing about my home time , I don't think is fair only 3 days of after a month of work , so I move to werner Enterprises, they were more human about it and give more tools to work or at lease I felt like that , but when I was 2 weeks into the training I almost had an accident on our way to Houston TX and make me realize how bad I'm at the shifting so I quit , but I'm not a quiter so I try one more time but xpo logistics put me in a sprinter van , but is not the same , I miss the smell of diesel fuel , now I want to found a company that would help me finish my training, but every company out there seems to want to abuse of the Situation and care about my training only the money they can make out of me , that's why I ask you guys any suggestions about this matter?

Prime is a no go. (for me at least)

So I talked to a recruiter for Prime again.

He kinda pretty much told me to go work for Taco Bell for two years >.>

I have a spotty job history, where I am only 21. Apparently you have to of had a job for 2 of the last 3 years to work for Prime.

This kind of blind-sided me, not sure if it was because it wasn't posted anywhere or what, but, either way it caught me off guard and kind of broke my spirit and will to continue trying.

So, 9/12 i worked for a grocery store until 8/13. Since then the only job i had was at Walmart, for 3 weeks this last March. The job didn't last because I didn't have reliable transportation to and from work. (it's 30 miles from where i live).

My husband has been the one supporting us so it wasn't really necessary for me to work. Yeah yeah, say what you will about that. I live in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere, as I've said many times. Job opportunities aren't available even if I wanted one.

So, I guess if you know a company that doesn't require such a stringent work history, let me know. I'm pretty bummed out about this, so please refrain from any smart-alecky replies.

Thanks guys, be safe...

Dealing with being homesick

I hope you got your CDL. Driving OTR isn't for everyone. I tried it out of school and didn't like living in the truck. So I left the trainers truck after 30 day's. When I left the truck he told me I'd never find a job driving. About a week later I started driving for an LTL company. That was over a year ago. So when you get home start applying for LTL jobs if you are looking for an alternative to driving OTR. It doesn't mean you are any less of a driver......it just means you'll be home daily.

i did try ltl companies but they either want u to have your own truck or 2yrs otr , so im.just thinking on taking it like a man and stick to the 9 months program that CR England offers and then look for for something more local
