So I sold my bike tonight and now have funds to last me through training. My decision is with Veriha, Schneider(won't get a check for 6 weeks), or Knight.

I cant speak for the other two, but with Knight, you will be getting paid from day one, while you are in school. Its 480.00/wk in school. Then you will get 800/wk in training, 2 Weeks OTR and 1 week Top Gun, or 4 weeks OTR. Then you will go solo under a training DM for 30K miles, which is at regular scale for which ever division you choose to go IE Dry Van , ports, flatbed, reefer , etc.

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.

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.

Dry Van:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

Reefer:

A refrigerated trailer.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

And to Chris, if you go to Knight, make sure to tell your recruiter that Davy referred you so he will get the referral bonus.

Davy, try to communicate your full name, driver number to Chris so the bonus goes to you. I don't know how you can do that, but somebody else knows and can post the appropriate information.

I didnt even think of that, I always try to just paint an accurate picture of the company. My email is in my profile but richard.cranium666@gmail.com. Shoot me an email and Ill throw you my name and driver id. If you give me your name and contact info in the email, Ill pass it on to my recruiter directly and he will get something done with it. Im on really good terms with him and we still frequently talk.

Sorry Davy A, I spoke to Knight a couple of weeks ago, I told them my situation but they said since there is such a backlog in their school they went ahead and signed me up for mid November. This was at the beginning of September. I don't know if I would go that route just because of the wait. Probably end up with Veriha since it is regional and only a 6 month contract

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.

Youre the second person that Ive heard we have a backlog at school going. Whichever direction you go, it sounds like it will be a win for you.
