Truck Drivers and College Degrees??

I'm going to echo the others who suggest the military. The motor vehicle operator courses for the different branches would give you the hands on experience to be a good OTR driver and if you go Marines (OORAHH!) or Army, you'll get valuable off road driving experience if you decide to drive dump, log truck, or even DNR fire fighting equipment. Plus it'll be a life changing experience that will benefit you no matter what career choice you make. Good Luck!!

Have CDL, No Real Experience

My opinion, for what it's worth is to stay in the Corps. Other than that, talk to a few of the drivers of the companies you consider. And take everything you hear with a grain of salt. What is considered the best by some may be the worse for others. It all comes down to your attitude. It may sound ridiculous, but if you start everyday with a smile and a "oorahh" to be driving, even the worse company can become the best. Semper Fi Marine!

Not gonna lie... What The F%*K did I get into?

I feel your pain. Of the three backs we are doing the offset is the biggest challenge for me. I cannot judge nor do I trust what I'm seeing on the mirror.

It'll take time but after practice you'll be backing like a pro. The key is patience. And you won't be faulted if you set the brake and do a walk around. It's a breather that has helped me and I started driving in '73. I still do a walk around if the area isn't comfortable. Good Luck!!
