Information on ABF Freight, YRC Freight and UPS Frieght Road Driver Jobs

Hello, I'm new to the forum and industry but my husband retired from Roadway with Central States Pension. We are looking at a $1400 a month cut thus my reason for joining this industry. His pension was supposed to be vested but apparently not. I hate thinking about paying into a plan and not seeing much back. Just my .02 cents.

Should I go through a recruiter or choose a school myself

Thanks Joseph. I'll definitely look into the pre-hire option.

Should I go through a recruiter or choose a school myself

I am a highly motivated woman who is looking to start a career in the trucking industry. I have been lurking on your forums for a few days and I believe this lifestyle change would suit me and my husband perfectly. He is a retired truck driver and has been helpful and supportive of my decision. We could eventually team drive together but because I live on the border of Texas and Mexico I'm looking for a company that has training assistance and terminals with guarantee to hire. I have many safe miles of driving RV's and trailers under my belt. Should I contact the companies I'm interested in directly or go through a school and have them "fit" a company for me? Thanks and I look forward to the suggestions.
