What did you do before becoming a truck driver?

Graduated high school at the top of my class and went to a private college in the middle of the mountains dropped out after 1 year didn’t really have the desire to do school anymore. I worked as a butcher for 6 months after that got to the point where I couldn’t stand being around raw meat and quit. Tried factory work for 3 months but found it to be too repetitive. Quit the the factory and went back to school but this time I went to Culinary school and learned to cook graduated with a degree in Culinary arts but after your friends and family learn you can “cook” like Gordon Ramsay you just don’t have the desire to cook anymore so now I just cook for myself and my gf when I feel like it and got a job managing a gas station and working graveyard shift for the 2 years the money’s alright but the public is abusive and currently im waiting to go to school for Roehl. I was raised around trucks growing up and always enjoyed riding along with my grandpa or uncle. So here goes my start to a new career

My Journey with Roehl Transport a start to a better Career

Sorry about the late reply but she finally got back to me and I’ve got my physical Monday morning at 10 am with a tentative start date of November 25 in Gary, IN training for the flatbed national fleet. I’m super excited.

Irish Mike she said either Marshfield or Gary based on openings available I’m looking at the Flatbed national fleet

Banks I’ll keep that in mind

Brandon best of luck to you.

Well I called her yesterday but got her voicemail. I left her one stating I was ready to take my CDL permit test around next week. I called again today to just see if I could catch her alas no luck but I’ll try again in the morning

Thanks Turtle

So tomorrow’s the big day I’m kind of nervous because I haven’t had any sort of physical in a year do to the lack of insurance. I’m hoping they schedule it with the DOT chiropractor in town because otherwise the nearest DOT examiner for me is about 90 miles away. Wish me luck guys

My Journey with Roehl Transport a start to a better Career

Hello everyone. To start things off I’m kind of new here but have been surfing the forums and diaries for ages really enjoyed Winetasters and PJs diaries. I’m 23 years young and live in eastern Kentucky.

I’ve always been interested in trucking from a really young age. My grandpa used to pick up milk from farms, my Uncle currently drives for Swift, and a friend of the family drove for Aggro Liquid Fertilizer delivering well fertilizer so it’s in the blood. I’ve spent the last 5 years trying to find myself and could never really find anything I enjoyed. Everything from college to factory work. I did graduate with an associates degree in Culinary arts but food service isn’t for me. I’ve been working at a gas station for the past two years as night shift manager and honestly the pays alright but there’s nowhere to move up

So I finally decided to start looking into CDL training and got my short list of companies willing to help on that. Roehl and Swift. I’ve spoke to the Roehl recruiter the most she calls me daily. At Swift I have 3 different recruiters who I’ve talked to and call me regularly but don’t really seem that interested on telling me much till I get my CDL.

Well after finishing both PJs and WT diaries I’ve decided I’ll call Kesha on Monday morning and tell her I’m ready for the next step which is getting my DOT physical and taking my CDL permit test I’ve been studying the manual, using different apps and the training provided here for a solid 6 months now.

So until next time
