New the group goin to my first company

I picked Prime in the end. My goal is to get established and start putting money away for a house. Thats what I really want to have come of it. Then I can start looking into regional closer to where I would be living. Its important since Im not getting younger to jumpstart my life and start making money and getting a family started and even though Im not married and have a girlfriend I want to be able to have a home and then take the next step with her. Im not just doing it for me but for us. I want to be established and ready for whats next. What I have been doing till now will NOT do that. Plus NJ is just too expensive that what little you make will not be enough to get a head start. I always wanted to see this country and to travel and also make more money than I am now. I know it wont be easy. Becoming an EMT wasnt easy. The book work wasnt too hard but the real life stuff IS much harder. So I figure if I hold the discipline to do that and handle myself then I should be able to do anything else. I could be wrong but i strongly believe I am not. Getting rich isnt always #1 , I want to be comfortable and be able to be a provider and also work towards something even greater than who and what I am now.

New the group goin to my first company

Hey all I've poked around here a little reading things from time to time. Little bout me I'm 31 yr old EMT from nj changing gears and getting into truck driving. Since I'm on a real budget I got my cdl book and self taught myself with help from my gf who has her cdl for 8 yrs.

So I did what I need to and got my permit. Now I don't have the cash for school. Plus I wanted to go someplace that will finish getting me my license and have a job waiting for me. After checking around I found a company to do so. I know company reviews are subjective the company that came back with an offer was one I was hoping to hear back from and will transfer my permit over nicely.

That's where I am. I leave end of the month for either the best choice I've ever made ( career wise or the worst ). I feel good that I will do just fine. Read some stuff here on the company as even how training works. Still don't know if I understand it even though the diary section was pretty good.

Anywho I wanted say hi and wanted to hear a few tidbits to get me through the next few weeks and months ahead.

Only people who have been positive has been my gf ( the ex truck driver ) and my EMT partner at work. Parents have been not to happy and I feel greatly disappointed in my choice. That has added a lot of stress to the situation.

Any advice on that? Anyone been through that before?

Thanks in advance.
