My predicament is that I can't be gone from my house longer than 2-3 weeks, so I'd like to have a trainer that works in Las Vegas so I can take my off time at my house. If my trainer lives in Salt Lake City, for example, I'd have to take my time off there and I don't know how I could get to Las Vegas then back to Salt Lake City in time...

Brian;

It is SO ill advised to get on with Werner to specifically do the Dollar accounts, just for home time. Papa Pig pulled it off; more than many, don't. It's just TOO risque for newbies; often career killers.

Heck, you had trouble w/ that parking lot re: your testing!!

Have you looked into Schneider regional out by you? There are so many better opportunities. Any LTL options?

Keep researching! Apply here, and ENTER your PARAMETERS!! ~ Apply For Truck Driving Jobs

ps: Look into local paving/asphalt/combo dump truck driver jobs out by you. It's not going to be much credit to OTR work, but if you are limited as to your time out (why, tho?) it's something!

Again, this is all just in my opinion; been married into the industry for almost 22 years now.

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.

LTL:

Less Than Truckload

Refers to carriers that make a lot of smaller pickups and deliveries for multiple customers as opposed to hauling one big load of freight for one customer. This type of hauling is normally done by companies with terminals scattered throughout the country where freight is sorted before being moved on to its destination.

LTL carriers include:

  • FedEx Freight
  • Con-way
  • YRC Freight
  • UPS
  • Old Dominion
  • Estes
  • Yellow-Roadway
  • ABF Freight
  • R+L Carrier

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.

Anne, I may be mistaken, but I don't think that's what you meant to say:

risqué rĭs-kā′ adjective

1. Suggestive of or bordering on indelicacy or impropriety. 2, Suggestive of sexual impropriety; bordering on the indelicate. 3. Suggestive of sexual impropriety.

I suspect you meant:

risky rĭs′kē adjective

1. Accompanied by or involving risk or danger; hazardous. 2. Attended with risk or danger; hazardous. 3. Dangerous, involving risks.

Of course, there may be more going on with the Dollar store accounts than I'm aware of.

Any Dollar accounts are not recommended for new drivers.

What about researching if there are any companies that haul shipping containers? Lots of truck traffic passes through Vegas to and from California.

True...but I think Anne is being playful. Her eccentricities-along with her accurate information-are what make her posts so interesting to read. Her mind "works in mysterious ways".

At least SOMEBODY gets me !! thank-you-2.gif

ps: Impropriety DOES fit . . . if you think about it! Indecency, too. New folks doing Dollar stores.. is akin to being thrown outside, in an indecent fashion. No dis, to Ray ! He survived.

Thanks, RD !

Brian;

Now that we've clarified all the 'indecencies' of trucking; have you ever considered LTL??

We had a real huge success story from a guy on here not too long ago (Where IS he, y'all?) named Rhino, that got on with USF/Reddaway, in a training program, right there by you!!!

If you weren't so snarky, I'd post the link.

Okay fine, I'll be the 'nicer' person; here ya go: ~Rhino's comment history on Trucking Truth~

Take a look see; it worked for him!
