Hello James, and welcome aboard!

James, one thing that we strongly emphasize here is to stick with your first trucking job for one full year. None of us are surprised that you're getting job offers, but let's be honest... you are looking around for other opportunities.

As a rookie driver, you are still into a very steep learning curve. It will benefit your career greatly to prove to yourself you can "hang tough" somewhere during this intense time of learning. We've seen it a thousand times. A new driver doesn't really understand how this whole career works and they get frustrated with their job. They don't realize the frustration is due to the fact that they just haven't gotten to the point of excelling at this yet, so they convince themselves that their company isn't a good place to be working. Then they start poking around online and start getting job offers. The next thing they know they have a new job, but are still dealing with the same problems they were having before.

Let's have an honest conversation. Why are you looking around for a new job after only four months? I'm pretty sure there's somebody here who has worked through these issues before. We always try to help, and most of us have been extremely frustrated at some point in our early trucking careers. Tell us what's going on.

About Us

TruckingTruth was founded by Brett Aquila (that's me!), a 15 year truck driving veteran, in January 2007. After 15 years on the road I wanted to help people understand the trucking industry and everything that came with the career and lifestyle of an over the road trucker. We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
