TND 740

My TND 730 has the same issue. I already sent it back and they replaced the battery and when I got it back it still has the same issue. I wonder if that charger will work for a gps since he was using the tablet? I'd buy one in a second if I could find one.

Got my CDL. Off to orientation

Yes, Darrell was the recruiter I talked with. I called him this week with a few questions, and understand he's going back on the road. I've heard many good things about McElroy and I'm really looking forward to getting started. I forgot to ask about the trucks, do they have APU'S? I know some companies let you idle.

Got my CDL. Off to orientation

I'm finishing up my CDL training, passed my test this week and have been researching several (or many) companies. Just when I thought I knew where I wanted to go, a recruiter stopped by from McElroy and changed my mind. They really seem to have checked all the boxes for me, and I'll be heading to orientation in a little over a week. I hadn't considered flat bed at all, but I'm hopeful it's a good place to land. This site has been an invaluable resource for me from day 1.

What is expected as of 2017 (or within the last 2yrs) from a NEW Hire working at TMC?

Here's a link to their review If I wanted to run flatbed, I certainly would consider them.

Job offer

The most unique of them is driving equipment show to show for country music concerts. My wife would kill me, otherwise I would jump on it. Hauling around the equipment for country music stars such as Brantley Gilbert. Oh well.....

I'd pick driving the tour bus over the equipment haulers. You'd get enough stories for a lifetime.

Job offer

Thank you. The interview was only about 10 minutes and she told me there was no pressure, that she would be checking in with me from time to time and that I would have a job with them when I was finished with school if I wanted. Honestly, they are at the top of my list anyway, but I still want to kick a few tires.

Job offer

I'm about 3 weeks out from cdl school and have been contacting different trucking companies about employment. I've spoke with several recruiters this week and this morning got a 'conditional job offer' with an interview set up for this afternoon. I'm not ready to commit yet, and I'm looking forward to talking with recruiters while I'm at school. Is this typical? Are they looking for a commitment today?

When to contact trucking companies?

I'm starting CDL school in a few weeks and while I'm there I will be talking with a few recruiters from different trucking companies. Should I be reaching out and applying before then, or wait? I don't know if I want to commit to anything before hearing what they have to say during my schooling, but would it be smart to lay the groundwork now? Thanks

Central Tech, Drumright / CFI

I registered last week for Central Tech in Drumright. They have such a great reputation, I can't wait to start. I didn't sign on with anyone, and I was told I'd see around 10-12 recruiters. Looking forward to reading about your experience.

Thanks for your help

I appreciate the information and the willingness to help on truckingtruth.com. I've never been behind the wheel of an 18 wheeler, but always wanted to. Now, after 25 years in another profession, I'm making my move. I'm registered for truck driver training in about 4 weeks and I'm really looking forward to it. In the meantime, I'm gathering all the info I can, and this website has been the best find yet. It's like a view from the inside and very helpful.

Cdl test ?

How many times did you, before you passed?

How long did you have to wait, after you didnt pass, to retake?

Did you take and, or pass your cdl / clp written test At your local dmv?

I only wanted to take it once so I studied and according to the guy at the DMV, I 'crushed' it. I took my test this week and studied hard for about 4 days prior. I had the study guide from the DMV and there are also practice tests you can take and good online resources like the High Road Training.
