Stacy M-Yellow Wolf's Bio

I am a farmer, a foodie, an artist and a writer. Love books, dogs, kayaking, adventure, good food, riding horses, gardening, painting, sailing and meeting people and hearing their stories. I have driven a 5+ton truck and hauled show horses up and down the East Coast. I have the motto that if I can drive it in, then I can back it out! Never driven a semi and never traveled as much as I would like to. Looking at trucking companies and schools. Want to be an OTR driver and see some country with my dogs. 🚚🐶

Starting My New Career-putting in Applications

Thank you guys for the encouragement. Unfortunately, things are not coming together right now where I can be gone from home for training and working OTR. I am not giving up by any means but it could be 1-2 years before I can get on the road. In the mean time, I am trying to get on locally with a trucking company in an office position and I will continue to study and learn. NC has tons of trucking companies. Packrat, Millis was one company that I talked to and they wanted to offer me a job/training when I was ready to go. I will continue to learn while I work toward my goal of getting on the road. Thankful for this forum and I will continue to enjoy reading about your journeys while I work toward mine.🙃💪

Company Training and Non-Compete

Brett and G-Town, thank you for weighing in on this. As someone at the very beginning of starting a career in trucking, this whole story was disturbing. I had already made up my mind that no one would make me do anything that I felt was unsafe. I would rather go too slow, take an extra few moments to understand something, leave too large a following distance than cause a wreck and kill someone. And if that means that a company thinks that I am not catching on fast enough for them then so be it. Dart-I wish you luck. Thank you for sharing all of your story. Everything in life is a learning experience. Stay safe out there.

Why do so many people get booted out of trucking? This is why...

Yikes! Here is to hoping that he doesn't ever make it into a truck. I just do not get what is wrong with some people. Having an attitude just makes your life harder in every way. 😯

About to Start Training with Roehl

Well, while my last trainer and I thought things were going well, today marks the end of my journey with Roehl.

Provided another company will take me, I'm not giving up.

I hate to hear that. I am glad that you are not giving up though . Get back out there and find a good fit for you. Best of luck Dart!

I feel for ya. I'm in the countdown myself... I'm waiting another year before I take the plunge.

Thank you Han Solo Cup! Love your handle by the way. I am from the South where red Solo cups are part of the good china! 😂😂😂 I am excited and everyone has been extremely nice and professional. I have a couple of months before I can take off to school myself. I wanted to get the ball rolling in case I needed to get extra paperwork together. I love driving and I am excited. I used to haul show and race horses and will probably do that again one day but I want to drive OTR for awhile first. 🐴

Possible Application Roadblocks

I said that I would share the two things that I was concerned about in contacting companies regarding trucking school. The first is small. I have been self-employed for the last 12+ years. Companies want a solid work history and proof of that. One company asked for the last 3 years of tax records and some company invoices from this year showing my customers, products, etc. Another company asked for a couple of references that could verify that I owned my own business. Another will pull up my full employment history-no problem. The biggie for me, and for some of you out there, is that I have a felony. It was nonviolent, has nothing to do with driving and was 15 years ago. Still that is a stumbling block and one that still bothers me a great deal to talk about. But, I really want to drive and I had to get past worrying about it and move forward. I was completely up front on every written/ online application and while talking to the recruiters. I totally own what I did and do not try and blame anyone else for my choices. I think this part is crucial-own your mistakes always. The recruiters did not feel like it would be an issue especially since I have a very good driving and work record and have never done drugs or had problems with alcohol. Time will tell but it felt good to get everything out in the open and get the ball rolling.

Starting My New Career-putting in Applications

Well, I took the plunge yesterday and sent out my application through Trucking Truth inquiring about companies that had CDL schools and were hiring out of NC. I do not have a company that I am going with yet, but I thought I would share the very beginning of the process and how it was working for me. I received an email from TT saying that my information was sent to 6 companies-TMC, Wil-Trans/ Jim Palmer, PAM, Millis Transfer, Roehl Transport and CRST. There are a couple of other companies that I am interested in so I will contact them on my own. I received calls and emails from Wil-Trans, PAM and Millis this morning. TMC sent an email asking me to fill out an application that included consent to pull driving records, drug tests, employment history and a back ground check. CRST oddly sent a brief text asking if I would interested in team driving. I replied that I was only interested in solo OTR. No reply back. I have been reading, studying and taking tests and keeping a notebook. I have made a page for each company that interests me with notes and highlights on what interests me about that company. (Honestly, I could go with any of them and be happy to be working for them. The differences are small.) On the back, I put the recruiter's name, contact info and notes about our conversations and my next steps. There are a couple of things that I felt like I needed to talk to the companies about to see if I would even be accepted into their CDL programs. I will make a seperate post about that. I am so excited about the prospect of driving that I was shaking when I called the first recruiter back. I am really going to do this! 😃🚚⛟🚛🚚

Applying to Companies After Being Self-Employed

You would have to give them last 5 years of just your Schedule F from your taxes or Schedule C if you were filing that way. i also had to go to IRS and get tax transcript for same 5 years. it only took me hour at IRS office to get it and free. They also wanted letter from my accountant but since I filled my own taxes I got a letter from my banker that verified i was in business for More than 5 years.

Ah, thank you. I have never heard of a tax transcript. I file my own also. Great info!

Applying to Companies After Being Self-Employed

Thank you OS! I was hoping that tax returns would be enough. I have never not worked or drawn unemployment, even when I got laid off from one job when the company changed hands-I went right back out and found another job.
