Well only one phone call today from Witte Bros. Had a nice long chat with the recruiter about training and my past driving experience. He reassured me I would be able to find someone to take me on with my cats. They dont allow pets at all though.

Well, darn. Was it Darien? Great guy. Did you tell him I (we) sent you?

Have you tried MAST? Apply For Paid CDL Training!!

Another possibility (I may have mentioned) is Dutch Maid logistics. What about TransAm?

Your ship (rig) WILL come in, good sir!

Nope it wasn’t Darien, can’t remember who, but I did tell him they came recommended from here! I have applied to all the companies y’all listed on here, but haven't had anymore calls. I’m leaving out on Sunday for orientation to the original company. I asked the recruiter again if he was sure I would be ok to get my cats as soon as my training was over and I was issued my truck and he assured me I would, so fingers crossed! It’s looking like I will have a total of 200 hours of refresher training to go through, then a final road and backing test. Honestly I can’t wait! I can’t wait to hit the road again! I told him that as long as they treat me right, I will treat them right and will become their best driver, lol. They know I’m looking at this as a career and not a job so I will be putting in my 1000% for them. I’m only worried about my backing skills as I never really got good at it.
