Where to find jobs?

I'd like to remove the auto restriction.

Is it a simple drive around town test, or also needs the new CDL pad maneuvers?

I can find a manual tractor, but harder to find trailer for a test.

Where to find jobs?

My current company, Barr-Nunn has a terminal in Charlotte.

Barr-Nunn, thx, Expect almost half of daily shifts to begin 2100. Nights ok, but on occasion, flipping day to night shifts every other day is too much.

Did move into training a while ago. Rewarding in many ways. I get new drivers for 3 weeks, until they get their CDL.

Certainly not relaxing, some are just bad drivers. Legs often a little sore at end of shift from my imaginary braking in passenger seat. One guy, I actually bruised bottom of my foot.

I took over for a drowsy trainee and then crashed. Had to tell student 4 times to call 911 "I heard you, but what number?" No joke. I got a loaner truck next day, next day moved into a new, to me, truck. The driver of pickup lost control on onramp, took out tandems of tanker in front of me in lane 1, then spun to get TBoned by my truck in lane 2. He walked away with a bloody lip, but was surely sore the next day. He's very lucky, I feared the worse.

0.62/mile ~$6k/month as Company

Not bored, just feel like could use a change. The challenge of finding 10hr parking has become less stressful, but remains the most difficult daily task. This country which used to seem so vast, has become smaller. Think I'll try CDL training, while avoiding OTR training. Perhaps a dedicated regional with more regular hometime. I might be a bit spoiled as the freight market slowdown and spot market decline has had no impact. And my trucks have been well cared for with no-questions-asked maintenance and repair.

If you feel you made a good choice with your current company, why do you want to change? What is your pay per mile now? Do you just want something more regional?

I know of several reefer outfits that are good companies. More information please.

Pre-Trip Inspection - My Way! A must see!

They put on a shinny new wheel last night. The crack was completely hidden by road salts. A little water cleanup needed for authorization pictures.

Here's a crack in wheel starting at boot hole. Thinking safe enough for many miles, that's why so many bolts. https://photos.app.goo.gl/ZsAkJyHHssTAjbhf6

When an issue is found what is required and when is an issue required to be fixed? Some things are more obvious than others.

Read, when the driver is comfortable that everything is safe. But we aren't experienced enough to know. We ask our carrier and the typical response is to roll and fix later.

Found a nail in tire and they pushed to repair at the next truck stop. Found crack inside one bolt hole on steer wheel, not as concerned.

Are these 2 examples safe? Will roadside inspection result in citation?
