Big Scott (CFI's biggest fan) 's Bio

I dream of a career driving a truck. I spent almost eight years working for a company that builds machines. Unfortunately, I lost that job in the beginning of February (2017). I have been on unemployment. That runs out early May. After a couple of years of planning, when I lost my job, my wife had some health issues that prevented me from making the leap then. Now she is doing better and I have started applying to several companies. We are working hard to pay off debt and that is a slow process. I am here on TT because I find this to be the best site for current and truthful information on this industry. I was. accepted into CFI's company sponsored training and I'm currently in school for them. 6-26-17 Got my first truck with CFI today. 9-21-18 Still driving OTR with CFI. On 11-15-18 I became a trainer with CFI.

In July of 2019 I was denied a new medical card due to high blood sugar. After several months of hard work, I got everything back to normal. Then due to CCP Virus, the non driving job I was working at closed down. This forced me back to where I wanted to be. I contacted CFI and on May 28th 2020, I will be back in a truck.

Roehl or CFI?

Your attitude will determine your success in this business. I have been more than happy with CFI. You will be paid while out with your trainer and they cover all other costs, transportation, room and food during school.

You can't go wrong with either company. Although I might be a LITTLE biased towards CFI.

Starting truck driving school in a few weeks.

If you want school we highly recommend Paid CDL Training Programs. There are companies like CFI not in there.

By going that route, they invest in you and give you more leeway.

Good luck.

NO EXPERIENCE TEAM DRIVERS NEED HELP

If in their hiring area, CFI will train you free. They cover all costs including food while in CDL school. They would train you each solo, then allow you to team. CDL school is about 3 weeks, orientation is 4 days, time on truck with trainer is 25 days.

Good luck.

Trans Am Trucking Employment or Non Employment Question?

Mike what problems are you having due to Trans Am saying you worked for them?

Also, CFI has a couple of Facebook groups for drivers. We mostly have helpful drivers and the rest of the company from top down.

With 100% bias, I think you're now with the best OTR company.

Good luck.

Oh and I only buy unlocked phones. My current and favorite is a One+ 7pro.

With unlocked phones bloatware is minimal if at all.

Cell phone provider

Straight Talk. I love it. I pay for unlimited data. $60/mo. My wife's with 2 gigs of data is $35/mo. Those prices don't include tax. I have no problems. In the areas I have weak or no signal most don't either.

Buying my first truck need some info

I have two friends who currently own trucks and work for different companies. One thing they have in common is they don't go home.

If you want to take time off when you want be a company driver. We can afford home time with no truck payment.

NYC parking for Home-time?

Does anyone know good legal spots to park my tractor trailer for Home-Time in New York City?

Thanks in advance.

Where in NYC? Manhattan or a borough? Closest place is probably NJ. There is a pay yard somewhere. I forget where.
