Your family should be top priority, no matter what. I would say try to get your company to give you a local or regional position that gets you home more, and if they can't do that, then with 6 months experience under your belt already there are a good number of other companies that could hire you for a local position, and you should absolutely pursue that if your current company can't work with you. Even if it means you'll have to pay back your schooling costs since you didn't complete your contract, at least you'll have a new job that gets you the home time you need, and you'll be able to be there for your family. I personally wouldn't even consider an OTR position if I had a wife and kids and one on the way, but I know individual circumstances vary and sometimes you just gotta do what you have to to keep food on the table. Good luck and keep us updated! :)

Thanks for that I needed that

Stocking your sleeper cab

I hve can soups noddles lunch meat bread just to name a few. GPS and CB radio. Microwave would be good to hve. A coffee pot if u drink would be good as well. Labtop to watch movies if u hve spare time. And a converter to plug in microwave computer coffee pot when needed. Since getting cold thick ass blankets and pillows. Mke it to ur comfort zone to your best ability. Try to keep from eating out as much save money.

Can you get routed through your company's training location and maybe have a trainer give you 15 minutes?

Maybe they can see an obvious easy fix.

Probably not they dnt route u there unless maintenance or somethang serious. They sending me to NY where all those low clearances after i told them im not ready for that because east coast is like the worst place to send in a rookie to expect them to be safe and not mess up. Luckily i haven't had any accidents and any way going to NY.

How close are you to your contract time?

Your wife's pregnancy complications might be a reason they could let you get more home time under Family Medical Leave Act.

You definitely need to try talking with them.

Good luck.

Im wrking on 6months so 4 more to go.

I working on my 6months OTR experience and im having some difficulties in my backing i can get it sometimes but most times im like wtf lol but how long does u think it will tke to actually get it. Im not gne lie sometimes feels embarrassing like all eyes on u. I know it take times but omg sometimes i laugh at myself. Then others just look at u and dont attempt to help just waitin on u to hit their truck i guess

Need help with a situation

Im currently under contract with CRST but do to custody battle and wife pregnant with complications I need to be home more hell need a job close to home because im out a month at a time and home 5 days then back out. Its beginning to be hard on my son with my mom having him with no help until i finish contract. I want to finish because i dnt a bad rep over my name but my family needs me to be there more. I understood what i was getting into once i took the contract but things became more difficult at home since then. What should i do? U think CRST would let me go without putting anything bad over my head to keep other companies from hiring me?
