Rookie pay Example this week

Rainy D. you made me think of something.

How do Holidays affect trucker's schedule? I assume a lot of shippers/receivers are closed, and are DM's off those days? Do you just have to plan around those days and/or kinda sit around waiting for things to open back up, or is it pretty much business as usual?

Pay in lieu of benefits

We have a good health insurance plan thru my Wife's employer. Has anyone not taken a company's health insurance plan and gotten more per mile from your trucking company instead?

D*mn Girl!

When I first came in here Prime wasn't even on my radar. But I've now put them at the top with some others because of you and the other Prime folks in here.

Got my DOT physical this week, permit this morning, and drug test next Friday morning in Jacksonville. Then school starts that Monday. Feels good to make some actual progress even tho I'm only standing in the shallow end with my pant legs rolled up. I'm starting to really chomp at the bit to get going.

Hate to hear that about your Mom. I know how that feels, and it sucks!

Sounds like you kicked some *ss thru the training. If you find the time going forward, keep us posted on how the journey goes. Especially those first few months. It helps those of us starting thru the funnel.

I agree with you about the resources at TT. Trucking companies should hand out the link to this site to all new hires. They'd generally have better informed drivers with much better attitudes. :)

Congrats man. Onward and upward.

Start CDL School for Stevens Transport Mon. 6/6/16 (Whew, glad that one is in that date!!)

DSTURBD I can certainly understand why you are frustrated, who wouldn't be! But think about how many times we have heard in here about the bumps and thumps everyone takes getting started. You've had pretty calm waters so far, so something was sure to pop up to baptize you into trucking. Nobody seems to get to choose the issue, they only get certainty that it will be something. And that it won't be the last thing either. Congratulations, sounds like you've gotten your official welcome to this industry.

One of the cardinal rules (advice) in here is to stay the course when the storm comes.

Instead of sitting there, is it possible to drive back to your VA Doctor to move it along quicker. Hotel stay either way, just some gas money is the difference. The company is obviously wanting to get you started, and you have already set yourself apart from the crowd there.

They do have liability for their drivers, and so need to cover all their bases in case the the unthinkable happens. They don't want to get their head handed to them because they put someone out there without their butts being covered.

My Wife has a benign "familiar tremor" in her hands. Slight shake but not noticeable at all unless she gets nervous or has caffeine. It's a gene she inherited from her grandfather.

You've done awesome dude, stay the course your almost there.
