Chris K.'s Bio

I worked as a chef for 18 years and in 2004 I was laid off for the winter season. I on a whim went to driving school. I drove for Stevens Transport and Cooke Trucking(Mt. Airy, NC). I drove for about a year. I was on a break and a buddy of mine needed a chef so I returned to cooking. Like a dumb ass I didn't renew my Cdl. I am currently starting the process of training again.

Needing advice on trucking companies

There are a few smaller companies that offer training such as online transport or RE West. I believe they both pay during training, Re West definitely does. Of course where you are located may be an issue w these two. I would go w Swift over PAM personal opinion!🤔

Help me wrap my head around the decision to become a truck driver

thank-you.gif Ronnie Milsap, now that's a memory. And my two cents...give it a shot! I drove ten years ago and couldn't really decide whether I liked it or not, so I went back into restaurant business. And I let my Cdl lapse, so obviously I have to start from scratch. I really want to drive again but people in my life are making it difficult. I'm so burnt on the restaurant business. Pay is pitiful 15$ hr if you are lucky. If I want to put in 70+ hrs on my feet etc I could probably pull down 50,000$. Just do it!

Keep that positive attitude man! Best of luck! Keep your head high even if next month is rough." It's nature of the business, it's the smugglers blues".
