Well, after breezing thru truck driver school, with the help of the High Road Training Program, I am in my hotel room in Green Bay awaiting orientation tomorrow. I'm very eager to get going with this, and am still a little shocked that it's really happening. So, wish me luck! If anyone has any good advice, I'm all ears. Thanks TruckingTruth!

I am in Schneider bulk, i am picking up my truck tomorrow in savannah. the only advice i can give is learn trip planning really well. It's how we get our next load. if you can't trip plan well you will sit more. they make orientation kinda fun, it will be busy and go by quickly. I made friends with 4 other from my class and we text about every day. We are still helping each other and that is nice. have fun

Go get em Ryan!

Just remember to keep a great attitude and do anything they ask you to do with a smile. You're being tested and evaluated every moment you're there. Avoid the complainers, work together with the people who seem seriously about making a great career for themselves, and enjoy it all you can.

And make sure you keep us posted!
