Things are rolling right along for ya. Keep doin what you're doin!
I passed!!! I am now the proud holder of a class A CDL and an employee of central refrigerated! 3 days of orientation then out with my assigned trainer! I am excited but this is just the beginning now the real training and work begins. FEELING EXCITED, AND TIRED LOL
A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:
Very very cool - or should I say cold.... what temp does that refer's set point need to be at? When I see the central trucks I'll be wondering if that is you!
Hey that's fantastic!!! Congrats!!!
You're really making this truck driving thing look easy. Has it been easy???
I'm really glad to hear you passed. That's really awesome!!!
Wow, you really move fast when you get your mind made up to do something! Take you some vitamins and get you some rest 'cause you're gonna need it! They will be working your tail off this next month, but you can do it, heck anybody that's run a restaurant knows all about hard work and long hours with very little pay. You're going to fit right in with this truck driving business you're already accustomed to it.
I'm teasing you of course, but the training can be grueling at first, you've just got to set your mind and heart to the task at hand, and before you know it they'll be handing you the keys to your very own 150,000 dollar big rig - and that's when the fun just gets started.
Looky there, folks are so excited for you they're dancing in the streets!
Special K....We are so very proud of you !!! Now the real stuff starts...but keep that great attitude you have had thru school...it will serve you well. And ask your trainer ANY and ALL the questions you have....the trainer is your next fount of information....and of course we will still be here rooting you on, and helping you any way we can. Keep us updated....
And now you will be able to use that "washie" you got !!!!!
Thanks everyone! I honestly wouldn't have made it had it not been for this site. It has been such a great help from the High Road Training Program to the support and friendship you have shown! Brett to answer your question has it been easy the answer is NO, but have I enjoyed it YES I have! And you are right Old School, the restaurant business is similar to trucking with the fact it is NOT for the faint if heart! Star I brought the washer with me, cause I knew that I could make it. I will keep you updated as I can!
I go out with my trainer tomorrow:-) mimimum of 28 days, 200 hours, and at least 40 backing into docks, then after that I return to a Central terminal for a road and backing test (between two trucks), refer pre trip and another written exam! That will be my upgrade to become a solo driver!
A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.
You're rolling right along like a champ! Like a boss!
It's fun following along with you. You're nothing but smiles and good news!!!
