Quitting my job to attend cdl training full time

I plan on going trucking as soon as i finish school. The few months after the school I am referring to, would be trying to find a job. But from what I have read and research I have done, it wont be much of a problem finding a job. But I know some companies won't hire me for whatever reason.

I should mention that I am not married nor do I have any kids and that I don't have any big bills.

Quitting my job to attend cdl training full time

The cdl school I am looking at going to only offers full time classes right now that take 4 weeks to complete. Would it be a bad idea to quit my job to attend school. I have more than enough money saved to pay for the school and to support myself for probably 4 to 5 months before I would need to get a job. I am mostly concerned about what trucking companies will have to say about me being unemployed for a few months.

Questions about home time for otr, regional and dedicated.

Thanks guys. As far as OTR when you request home time do they try to get you home on weekends for your HT or could it be during the week?

Questions about home time for otr, regional and dedicated.

Okay first question. For most otr companies you get 1 day off for every 7 days you are out. When it says you get 1 day of hometime are they saying a full 24, hours or what? Also on regional and dedicated and runs, the home time on weekends is it a, full weekend or a partial weekend? Like will you arrive home friday evening or friday night and then leave out at noon sunday or leave out late sunday evening or night or early monday morning? How does this typically work? Thanks!

Just submitted my application to Millis trucking school

Well I called Millis today just to make sure they received my application, I was told that turned it down because they had better applications, when I asked asked what that meant never got a straight answer. That door didn't just shut it got slammed. Needless to say a little discouraged. I applied to Driver Solutions. Anyone had any experience with them. TT says it is a good way to start your career. When you Google seems to be quite a bit of complaints. Ant advice would be greatly appreciated.

This has got me concerned, that I may be turned down as well. I wonder what the reason was they turned you down so quickly for? I have been looking into Millis quite a bit. I haven't read a single thing bad about the company.

Does anyone have any information on Millis Transfer?

I've seen a few of their trucks out here too. So I know they do come out this far on occasion. So keep us in the loop, its a company that we really don't have anyone who's gone thru the school, that i"ve heard of. GOOD LUCK !!

I will keep you guys in the loop, If I decide to go with them. I am still undecided on getting into the trucking industry. Do I want to do it or not. Some days I do, Other days I don't lol. I don't know!

I figured finding out some info on them maybe be a small problem, because They are a smaller family owned company. On their Facebook page though I seen a handful of drivers saying they are a great place to work. I will try and see if I can contact some of their drivers and see what they have to say.

I am curious if anyone knows anything about Millis, or has heard anything about them? From what research I have done, they are a good company to work for. Has anyone been through their training program? or do you know someone who has been through their training program? Any information would help me very much. Thanks!

Got another question, Since I have no other choice than to do company sponsored training by doing this Will it keep me from getting a job at some company's? Western Express wants you to have graduated from a trucking school that had at least 240 hrs of classroom and driving training!

I am considering a career change to truck driving, but I can't make up my mind.

I too am considering driving as my new career after being laid off for a year and a half from 15 years in customer service in the mortgage industry. I am overwhelmed by all the opinionated reviews about the different companies to obtain training. Currently I am looking into Driver Solutions to get me started since I am broke. I was wondering if there are any unbiased opinions about them. All I can find is old negative reviews. How hard is it to get approval to train and then get the contracted employment? Oh I have so many questions and can't seem to find a strait upfront answer anywhere. I looked on here and got a generic overview of the company. Any one able to help with this?

Jason a couple of companies that offer paid training that I have been looking into is Prime and Millis transfer. I haven't seen anything bad about Prime except they try to push you into leasing, but thats it. And nothing bad about Millis! But several more offer paid training that are probably just as good. Daniel B on here works for Central refrigerated and went through their paid training program.

Thanks Daniel, It did make sense! Another question is what dictates how long to stay out? I know the average is 14 to 21 days. Are some trips 14 and others 21 days? How does that work? Thank you sir!
