I'm a female in my late 20's thinking about getting into truck driving and want to make sure it's something I want. The county I live in offers tuition assistance for truck school, but before I apply I want to get the answers to a few questions. Can I interview you? Just 15 questions. I'm hoping to interview at least 3 people! 1) what business do you work for? 2) what city are you based out of? 3) what skills and personal characteristics do you need for this job? 4) what is the starting pay?promotion opportunities? normal work hours? 5) what is the outlook for your work in this industry? Is the industry growing? 6) what do you find satisfying about your job? 7) what would you change about your job? 8) What are the physical qualifications for this job? 9) what is the best way to obtain a position that will start me on a career in this field? 10) do you like the working conditions? 11) how do you see the jobs in this field changing over the next few years? (ie. I'm currently an automotive technician and the industry has been going to more computer scan equipment, and less wrenching) 12) what special advice would you give to a person entering this field? 13) what are the most interesting aspects of your job? 14) what part of your job do you consider dull or repetitious? What percent of your time do you devote to this? 15) is there anything else I should know about this industry/job?

I would imagine that these questions have already been asked and answered in other posts. As women, I'm sure we all have the same questions that need answering! Good luck and sniff around this awesome site!

Yup....all these questions have been answered somewhere in this or the general forum...If you are truly interested, take the time to cruise this site. Nothing is free in trucking....you have to work for it...and more so for a woman....
