Training question: Female trainee with Male trainer

GREAT ANSWER AND INFORMATION C.S. !!! Every company has different rules...But across the board one rule applies to all. If ANY trainer makes sexual advances, innuendos, threats, or sexual blackmail towards you....you CALL the safety department of your company asap. You deserve to be treated with respect, period.

I want to become a team driver with my husband

I teamed with my hubby for alot of years. Its a great way ot do the tourist thing, enjoy things together (including the shower!!) and get paid for it. But I will say this.....if a marriage can withstand team driving with a closet for a home...it can withstand anything !!!!

Looking for career change in my late 50's

Yup...the fine ladies who posted before me have said it all.....It doesn't take outside plumbing to drive a truck. For women, it takes tenacity, a full sense of self worth, and knowing that the "pair" that we have is bigger than any guys junk....( dang, I like how I said that smile.gif ). You will be tried everyday...You will have to demand respect from other drivers, shippers, receivers, and possibly your boss. But you will need to know yourself well enough to know when you are hitting the glass ceiling. Then its time to move on. Get your cdl, a year of solid OTR experience, and you can go to, and do anything that your heart desires, or peeks your interest. There are ladies in every vein of trucking...right up to owner operators ( which I would not suggest in this economy). So step out there and follow that dream....grab that adventure and run with it....follow that white line down that asphalt ribbon... And Welcome to TT !!! and ........keep us posted !!!

I'm not a Real Truck Driver.......

I would have to say, that you would do well to be more aware of your surroundings....There are people who would knock you in the head for whats in that truck. Pharmaceuticals sell better than well on the black market. You know the drill, I won't bore you with repetition ....stay safe.

I got my cdl!! Now what??!

Trucking is not a job....It is a LIFE STYLE.......That being said...you can expect to be out approx. 6 weeks at a turn...If you can't deal with that, then you have gotten into the wrong field. But...get all the training you can....and go ahead and apply with those local companies !!!! You never know when you will find a soft heart who understands special needs kids, and momma's who love them, but also need to make a living !!! So what if they have an amount of experience they want...when they need a driver, they NEED a driver.....take the chance.....try the dance...you may like the tune !!

Beware of driving in bluejeans

I agree....While I was in the truck, I wore sweats, or yoga type pants....but NEVER get out of that truck in sweats....Do you know what the ass of those sweats look like after sliding around in a truck seat for hours ?? Even if they are tight fitting....your butt will look like a a baby with an overfull diaper....yup...the droopy drawers syndrome....
