Schneider Offer

Hey Dwayne W. Yeah Schneider is just one of the paid CDL companies that I'm looking at. As I get closer to retirement I'll see which one I'll finally go with if they hire me. The company that hires me is the one I plan to stay with until i fully retire, I don't like jumping from company to company. I really like the idea of bulk that's why I'm looking at Schneider, the only problem besides its not recommended here to pull bulk as a rookie is that Schneider doesn't have paid CDL training. I'm hoping by 2024 they do.

Good luck Jared! Schneider is one of the companies that I'm looking to work for when I retire in 2024. Hope all goes well during your training and keep us posted. By the way I don't have a picture of him but you look like my cousin!

Hey James J, Denton area isn't too bad to live as far as i know. Good thing about Texas is we have no state income tax where Arkansas does. But our cost of living is a bit higher so they may even out.

Credit card for truckers

Well I'm not a truck driver yet but with all the card abuse calls I work i don't recommend using a check card or debit card that draws the money out of your bank account.

If someone gets your card info they can draw your money out very quickly and banks can take a long time to do their fraud investigation and not reimburse your money for a couple weeks.

It's much safer using a credit card since the money isn't coming straight out of your checking or savings accounts.
