How much do you Want it? that's the question. is it worth it to you to pay your dues with a second chance company that is willing to give you a go? I have a Felony. I am also someone that is not going to let my history of bad decisions hold me back. with any career your going to have to pay dues. You do it in the service painting air castles and grinding running rust... you do it in the Trucking industry proving that your willing to Run. Yes the company is a second chance company, but I am one of those that is Thankful for the second chance. I have an offer as well from Carolina Cargo. and I am thankful for the opportunity to prove myself. Down the line I will see about finding something better; but you can't walk 1000 miles without someone giving you a pair of shoes to start walking those first steps in this industry. Thanks Carolina Cargo for giving me a Gothank-you.gif . and Thanks All for the support guys, as I did my due diligence on a career in the Trucking Industry. #Cheers~ I just want to Rundancing-banana.gif

Tyler... Good Luck. C.C. gave me a chance, and I actually loved working there. If you've been there, you know the good and bad things about C.C., but I'll tell you that working there gave me a lot of experience quickly. I worked harder there, and I had to do more weighing and tandem sliding than I can remember, but I got a lot of good experience. I believe I got years of experience in just one year with C.C. When I moved to another company, people would say things like, just wait till you go here or there, or have to do this or that, and I had already been to those places, and done those things, because I worked for C.C. Anyhow, as you said... dues must be paid. They gave me a chance, experience, and opened doors for me. I am also very thankful for Carolina Cargo, and I keep in touch with several people whom I became friends with there. Tell Samantha, Curtis, Jeff, Leah, Wendy and Corey that Tony says hello and that he misses them!! --Done Gone

Tandem:

Tandem Axles

A set of axles spaced close together, legally defined as more than 40 and less than 96 inches apart by the USDOT. Drivers tend to refer to the tandem axles on their trailer as just "tandems". You might hear a driver say, "I'm 400 pounds overweight on my tandems", referring to his trailer tandems, not his tractor tandems. Tractor tandems are generally just referred to as "drives" which is short for "drive axles".

I am also a fan of Carolina Cargo. I believe in second chances. They do get you the all important, much needed experience you desperately NEED. After getting it, those companies who said NO to you are suddenly in need of your services and are wanting to hire you!! Funny how that works, huh? If you need a second chance in life, Carolina Cargo will give you one. Very good people there. Appreciate them, and work like you do...everything will fall into place!
