Port TWIC CDL Jobs

I went to a non-company CDL school last year and it was paid for with a grant from my state as I was a 'missplaced worker' from being laid-off from the gas/oil fields.

Dan, what evidence do you have to support this statement? I recently saw a rookie OTR company driver's records who made 63,000 dollars his first year.

I did say: 'one of the quickest ways' I did not say it was the only way.

My evidence is my own experience. $70,000+ right out of CDL school. Again though, similar jobs in the South pay less.

Port TWIC CDL Jobs

I got my TWIC before getting hired, best decision I ever made. I was hired fresh out of CDL school @60 cents/mile with a 2300 miles a week guarentee, working out of the Philadelphia area. My company also has day cabs working the same account and pays $22/hour. The day cab drivers get 50-55hours a week.

We also have an account out of Wilmington, NC although the rates are lower. The money is definately in the North East.

Couple Questions: How is your holiday season going so far?

Going great! Got my CDL in July of this year and was hired fresh out of school at 60 cents a mile with a 2,300 miles a week guarantee. $1,380 a week minimum basically.

My experience in trucking has been fantastic. Much thanks to this site and the practice tests. They were very helpful.
