Halvor Lines Info Please?

I started with Halvor Lines right out of trucking school and was with them for six months until I landed a local job. Orientation and training is just as you said three days at superior then five or six weeks out on the road with your trainer, you do not team drive it’s the trainee doing the majority of the driving under supervision from your trainer. You can do some light team towards the end of the training if it’s agreeable then back to superior to final out. If you’re doing flatbed you’ll go through a week or so of load securement. I really enjoyed working for Halvor and will probably go back this winter when I get laid off from driving gravel trains. The trucks are all virtually brand new within the last two years they have satellite TV big refrigerators 2000 W inverter and bunk heater’s, you can idol If it really cold or hot out side.

I drove for Halvor Line for six months until I got a local job. They are very nice to work for and I think it’s the sixth straight year they have made the list

I've noticed that the biggest "con" people have for trucking is that you are away from home for weeks

It’s a tarp from his flatbed and being that it’s snowing, wind and wet it’s going to weigh about two hundred pounds. Fun fun
