CR England training day 1

Sorry I have been too busy to update. I'm on day 7 of training. Let me tell you that I have never before been behind the wheel of a big truck. I have learned straight back, off set (left and right), parallel (left and right), and am now on my second day driving with an instructor. I have spent every night going over my pre trip. I have about 3/4 of it down pat. This school is exactly what you make of it. I came here to learn and i'm doing that. Love it so far.

CR England training day 1

I took a bus from nc to burns harbor Indiana. His ride took 48hrs with layovers. Never again. Once I arrived at the motel, which is the bus stop, they assigned me a room.

I thought ok I can handle this for a couple weeks. Then my roommate came in from school. She started drinking and smoking in the room which are both against the rules. Long story short I changed things the next day. My first day at the school just consisted of signing all the paperwork and drug test. I already have my permit so we just had to wait to start the class. Day two..... We get on the bus to class at 6am. Basic classroom stuff. Went over rules of the range. Power points on backing and pre trip inspection. Glad completed about 4:30 pm .Tomorrow we are starting on the range. It's supposed to snow. At least if it does I'll already be a step ahead of the drivers who don't know how to drive in the snow. I can say I learned in the snow.... lol. I'll try to update after class tomorrow.

Did you start training yet? Also, just noticed you are from NC. Hope all goes well.

I got to the training on Wednesday after a 48hr bus ride. Did paperwork on Thursday. Started classroom today. Will get ot on the range tomorrow. Of course they are calling for snow tomorrow. That's ok. If I learn in the snow I'll be prepared for snow.

Good luck. By the way you are quite young to be starting this career. (No, you're not to old). How did you determine they paid the soonest? Prime pays you very quickly, CFI covers your travel, room and food during training. There are others that pay almost from day one.

Thank you for the welcome. I spoke with several recruiters. Many were not hiring in my area. Of the ones that were they paid the soonest

Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is michelle. I'm 48 so I know i'm a little old to be starting a new career lol but my kids are more grown and I need to make better money. Anyway I checked with many companies and this one pays the soonest. Got my permit today after two days of studying. I get on the greyhound monday and head for Indiana. The worst part about that is an 18 hour layover in Columbus ohio. Wish me luck! Any advice is welcome.
