I'm a 18 year OTR, Regional, local driver (presently on medical leave). I have a lot of knowledge that I have practiced through the duration of my career. Presently pursuing instructor positions, and also becoming a full-time student. I know a lot about this industry more so than most because of the mountain travel I have focused on. Ask me anything, from focusing on eating in the truck, versus survival when broken down, and other big companies dealings.
Try to get along with dispatch is a hard thing, quite technically dispatch is a secretary for the truck driver, attitudes do get involved from time to time, the right way to deal with this is something that you would want to ask and experience driver, I'm not talking experienced as in three or four years I'm talking more like 15 and more, the way you address issues is something that takes extreme tactfulness..
Have owner operated before so I understand all that needs to be considered, not just owning the truck.
