Unfortunately Wilson Logistics have decided they have more qualified candidates and passed on me 😩 which sucks since I really wanted to start with them especially since I have a dog and they’re pet policy had no restrictions.

Now I don’t know what other companies to consider.

There are plenty of other companies that train and allow pets after you go solo.

I'm so sorry, m'lady ! Location seems to be a huge factor out there, nowadays. Covid related, methinks.

Did you fill out an app here ? Apply For Paid CDL Training

If not.. fill OUT this one minute application. Don't be surprised to have a handful of offers, with comparable companies, in a quick minute!

Also, check out CFI .. pretty sure they are pet friendly, also! As is, J & R Schugel.

Wish you the best, girl. One bump does NOT deter ... (If it did, that speed bump that Kroger put in last week would have deterred me forever! And I was HUNGRY, haha!)

  • 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.

Thank you . I have applied to Millis, Stevens and Prime.

The only big requirement is the pet policy as I have German Shepherd and he is already 60lbs and not even a year . So that disqualifies from a lot of company. I don’t care too much for home time as I’m single and no kids and have been living away from family for awhile and already only see them 1x a month.

Avoid stevens, they aren’t pet friendly, and you won’t ever be home. The company I’m with, TLD, has a lot of old Steven drivers and I haven’t heard anything good. Except the mileage. They pay is decent but no pets and they’re trucks are autos. But best of luck!!!

CFI has a pet policy. The deposit is $500.00 and they will payroll deduct that if you want. I have see our drivers with multiple small dogs and very large dogs. Training is free if you stay one year.
