Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Great news, Amber! It's true this was a kind of "one way" choice,

Now to get on with things. You have a week to pack. You might check with the recruiter to see what happens for Christmas & New Years. Probably get those two days off & keep practicing the rest of the time.

Keep us posted!

I honestly didn't even consider the possibility of having Christmas off. That would be neat!

Packing, not too worried about it. Any words of wisdom, something that is always forgotten?

I'm super excited to get down to business now!!

Congratulations! You have reminded me of what I still consider a high compliment that one of our lady drivers gave me one time. It was "Mountain Girl" who once said something to this effect, "I have this little imaginary 'Old School' standing on my right shoulder. Everytime I start getting lost in the details I can hear him saying 'Just get in there and do it girl - make it happen."

Trucking is best learned hands on. You'll never figure it out by watching YouTube or reading internet reviews. If you're gonna "get it," you'll get it by jumping in and hanging on. It's a grand adventure!

Old school, Us mountain girls must think alike! I was actually considering changing my handle to mountain girl, as I'm from the Montana mountains! I feel like I want to make you proud in the same way I always want to make my father proud. You are definitely an inspiration! I am looking forward to getting out there and facing those challenges.

Thank you!!

Congratulations on making a decision. It's a big step to commit, one that many find difficult...no looking back now.

USX is a really good company; you'll do well there. I've met a few of their drivers running surge out of the Wally DC I am assigned to, helped them with directions and such. Positive vibes...all interacted with me professionally, with gratitude. Exchanges all concluded with a firm handshake and mutual respect. Says a lot for a company that hires and keeps good people.

Good luck Amber; to you and your husband !!!
