Greeny's Bio

New to trucking but not new to life. I have a plethora of experience being in business, military, and prison. I have enjoyed and enjoying life to the fullest. Without my family and spiritual life I wouldn't be here, not to mention me being in the trucking industry. I'm a "no non-sense" type of guy and I command respect and honestly.

Not new but good info

I know that's right. I've been in prison and a lot of people couldn't make it a day in there. Truckers need to be supportive for one another and tell the truth. Bottom line you can't do drugs and be a trucker!!!

I'm quitting C.R. England because of low miles

Wow!!! You, guys are the truth. I've been reading through the post and mostly the replies aren't in the author's favor. I can respect the moto "know thyself." Interpretation seems to me that we can be our own problem. Problem solving seems to be strong attribute a trucker needs. For the author don't be discouraged but be encouraged and make a sound decision before quitting. I can feel your pain about money. Before I came into trucking I sold drugs and making thousands a week. I really didn't understand how to make honest money nor have the patience to wait for it. Coming from making thousands down to hundreds a week is depressing and life changing. I didn't quit even though I wanted to my first gig. I hung in there and I found ways within myself to do better and I did. My advice would be hang in there and challenge yourself to do better and the money will come. But quitting is a terrible habit that repeats itself often. You can make a 6 figure income within 3 yrs in this business. I've talked with several people who make that kind of money and it's definitely realistic.

I couldn't agree more. I once was a prior drug user and it took a lot for me to make a decision to stop. I had issues that I thought drugs could cope but I was terrible wrong. It took my family and my spiritual life for me to finally stop. It was hell for me to finally come clean and I'm not going to throw away that hard work down the drain. The same determination I had to do drugs, I now put it to use learning ever day about trucking. For someone entering into the trucking business they need to have a made up mind to stop. Although, I'm new in trucking this a rewarding career. You don't have to have a master degree to make a 6 figure income and with trucking it can happen. I wanted spread the word on people wondering about drugs but I want to make clear you can't do both.

A lot of useful information on this post. Here's my 2 cents. Celadon is a great company to start out with no experience. Contrary to what others may think the lease options is good if don't want to stay with them for the long haul. The lease options works best because you can get most of their money. In the 9 months you will make a lot of mistakes but the experience you gain is invaluable. With the lease option you can get up to .90 cpm and you have flexibility, which you will need in this business. As a new company driver the pay is less than .20 cpm and for someone who's not staying long, meaning up to 9 months it's awesome for you to consider the lease option. Bottom line lease option is way better than company driving if you stay less than a yr.

I've read several post on companies who drug test. I want to begin on the most serious profound drug test, marijuana. Marijuana can stay in your system up to 100 days depending on use, bmi, and quality of thc. If your taking a hair test 90 days in your system, using hair from your head. If your taking hair test using hair from other areas on your body up to a 1 yr because hair on the body grows much slower. If your going into the trucking business and making a career, make as decision right now because you can't do both. For those who say you can don't listen to them because God forbid if you get into a mix while on the road and they find drugs in your system you might be going to jail and destroy the rest of your life. If you need to know cut off levels in dot testing, google dot cut off levels and make sure it's the official site. You will educate yourself on what to expect. Please remember if you used drugs make sure you buy a home test prior to doing your examination. I've seen dumb people take the test and didn't know if they were clean or not.
