The Struggle Is Real

Thanks everyone for the inspiration!! I definitely need it! It's been 10 years since I have drove a truck and I can't believe how much things have changed. There is a sensor for EVERYTHING in my mentors truck, so you have to behave now 😢🙃 No more fudgin' the log books either. I'm not sure I have ever done a HONEST log before now LOL Be Safe Everyone!

The Struggle Is Real

First week out with a mentor that has an automatic transmission and I'm still reaching to change gears and looking for the clutch! I definitely am not liking the automatics, ugh! And apparently, I'll have to re-learn to back up lol Does it get any better?confused.gifwtf.gif

On the Road Again

I don't tend to pay attention to most of the reviews I see, which is why I wanted to talk to someone that had hands on knowledge of these companies. I am leaning towards Swift, they have offered me a dedicated haul, close to home or OTR. I was a little concerned about Swift because I tried calling and emailing my recruiter and did not get a response. I definitely don't want to work for a company that I can't get my questions and concerns addressed. I have been out of trucking for a long time and many things have changed, so I definitely need training. Y'all have been great! Thank you for the info 😁

Steven's Transport has offered me a job, they said I will go through a refresher course with no cost to me and go out with a trainer for 4 to 6 weeks. They have great equipment but their mileage pay seems a little low to me. Swift has offered me pretty much the same deal but their pay is a lot higher. I remember hearing not so good stuff about Swift when I was driving before. Either of y'all have any personal experience with either of these companies?

On the Road Again

I have not been driving a truck for the last ten years, I did keep my CDL's. Was wondering if y'all could tell me who some good companies would be to start out with?
