Newb Researching

I signed up with Roadmaster's in Tampa yesterday and they had me apply to Total Transportation, Total offered me a pre hire letter within 45 minutes and they allow riders from day 1 as far as I understand it. The trucks are all automatic transmissions and have the largest sleeping berths available so I would suggest applying to them as well. From what I have heard they have 3 terminals, 2 in Mississippi and 1 in Tennessee but you can be stationed anywhere with them. Also if it matters I just got my Class E last month and they still offered me the job so bonus points there for no experience necessary.

Can trucking provide for your family? HECK YEAH!

Yeah I plan to be the driver that is willing to go the extra mile for dispatch when they need it because everything i'm reading says that is how you get better CPM. I want to be an OTR driver already because I have hardly ever left Florida in my life and at 31 years old I think it would be nice to get out. I have a couple of months before I worry about all this though because my school doesn't start until the end of June and then hopefully 3 weeks later I will be sitting in Jackson, Mississippi at Total. Once i'm on the trainers truck I can figure everything out.

How relevent is Brett's book today?

I think it's worth sticking it out for the contract term, I know in my case I got a pre hire letter today from Total Transport so that I can start trucking school for free. I get $300 a month for tuition paid by them plus paid OTR training for a month or more and on top of that I get a company truck that is 2 years old or younger to use while I work for them. I will take that deal any day of the week to get my foot in the door. Also as far as demand goes I was told that the school im going to be attending starts an entirely new class every single week of the year and I got my offer letter from total less than 45 minutes after I applied to be a driver so yeah they are pretty desperate for drivers right now.

Thanks, this is very comforting to read. I got a pre hire offer from a company today less than an hour after I applied so that I can start at Roadmasters at the end of June. I make $17.50 an hour right now as a seasonal stow associate at Amazon and I was a bit worried when I saw what I get paid per mile when I start with the company but this does show that it will add up to a good wage in the end.
