Dan, you are only a third of the way through training. ANY school or company gives you just enough during your permit phase to get you past the exam. Now is when the real learning comes into play.

it really seems as though you are prematurely expecting to know everything at this point.

that is like a first year med.student being upset he hasnt been trained to perform brain surgery yet.

you lack confidence because you have a long way to go. and as we say repeatedly, it takes a whole year to truly know what you are doing. 30 to 40k miles of training still wont give you all of the info you need, regardless of how hard the trainer tries. and because of issies on the road, no ones training is exactly the same.

im still confused about your pay. what you say makes no sense. you should have been getting $700 gross per week since you got your CDL. that appears to have been 3 weeks or so. Did you fill out your W4 wrong and they are taking too much in taxes or something?


Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Soooooo ready for this to be over.


“This” has barely just begun, yet in a later post you claimed you weren’t adequately trained. Makes no sense. None of your rants make any sense...

Dan I read every word of this thread and it’s very easy to conclude; you Sir need to get your head screwed on straight. Every experienced driver has sincerely offered their advice and wisdom, yet you continue running your mouth as if you know better.

Look bottom line is this, decide you want to learn, be “coachable” and get off your high horse. Otherwise stop wasting our time with all the negative headtrash and please move-on...

To Tim, the original poster of this thread:

You can look on the bright side bro. Training at any company is far easier than following this thread. Sorry you got hijacked.
