Did you pay off the contract with your (former) carrier? That particular carrier has been known to sue other carriers for hiring drivers that are under contract from their schooling.

No, I did not....not yet anyway. It is something I plan on doing though. So, we'll see how it works from there.

Congratulations and welcome to the CFI family. I am assuming they will be sending you out with a trainer. If that is the case you will be on your trainer's truck for 21 days. During this time you will be doing all the work. Then it's back to Joplin to upgrade. Let your recruiter know that you have tuition to pay and they may pay it for you.

We have a Facebook page for CFI drivers and families and another for CFI drivers. Once you are officially hired, at the end of your orientation. You will be able to get on Workforce which is Facebook specifically for CFI.

Best of luck to you.

Is CFI aware you still owe CRST? Like I mentioned before CRST plays hardball when it comes to finding a new driving job if you haven't satisfied the terms of the contract. That includes being sent home during school, terminated or resigning. There are numerous multimillion dollar judgements CRST has won against other carriers for hiring drivers under contract. Definitely ask the recruiter about paying off the schooling. Most often tuition reimbursement only applies to your first trucking job for private schooling but it doesn't hurt to try. Congrats again on getting in with CFI. Are you excited to run solo after training? I can't recall if you were on of the people that were dead set on teaming.

Welp....just received an email from CFI pulling my job offer due to the accident being marked as preventable. Back to blanketing out applications to see about getting back behind the wheel somewhere.

Sorry to hear that. Get in where you can, stay safe for at least a year, then you can go somewhere else.

Super sorry to hear, Op. Dang.

Have you looked into Dutch Maid Logistics, in Willard? I don't remember where you are in Ohio ... but they gave Marc Lee a 4th chance, after SNI, JBH, and Veriha....unfortunately he had a mishap driving.

Worth a try!

I'm in Columbus, and no I didn't but just put an app in, thank you.

I've spent the last 4hrs scrolling through Google and putting applications into different companies.

That might work for you. Dutch Maid LOVES Buckeyes...central to their operations.

Wonder if my husband's company would look at you?!?!?

Would you be comfortable w/'regional'/intrastate? Daycab .. bumping docks, drop/hook? How much exp. do you have, again?

Contact info in my bio.. jsyk.

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

Intrastate:

The act of purchasers and sellers transacting business while keeping all transactions in a single state, without crossing state lines to do so.
