Well I did my one week of orientation, followed by a week of load securement. Today is my first day with a trainer. We are taking a load to Dallas. I am liking the company as a whole. I hopefully will be able to test out early instead of doing a full 4 weeks with a trainer. So far my biggest issue is that if my trainer takes a week off for Christmas, I Will be forced to sit at home and will not be paid. And missing an entire week of pay for something that is out of my control. Will really bite. But other then that, the company seems very professional. They are a very strict company. Cameras inside and out the trucks. The equipment seems very will maintained. I already have some OTR experience so I am ready to get out there on my own.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Great update Big Holli. Have you seen any of their International Lonestar veteran truck's? I've only had a chance to see one in person and it sure was sharp.

Being made to take that time off might not be all that bad. My plant shuts down from the 25th-28th and we won't be accepting or receiving any shipments in that time. If you were out with your trainer, you could likely end up sitting for the week anyways... better to do that at home.

You are right. But I would be Sid to sit. Where as the week I was off was nice, but I didn’t get a paycheck. But my trainer did.
