Thanks for the replys and yes I did say any replys was welcomed and any more is also. I wanted opinions and got them. I was skeptical about these trucking companies who are always recruiting though trucking schools and was also skeptical about being a trainer after only there for 6 months to a year.
I know I wouldn't want someone training me that was only driving for a year or less and I see about the training part, yes, how could you get trained fully if your driving and your trainer is sleeping or vice versa. And yes if I was a trainer I couldn't sleep knowing this person is right out of trucking school and we are going over say Donners Pass.
But what is the best way for a person to get his feet wet in the industry except to take a job with one of these companies that will hire students. And yes I want to learn and while I am in the training stages I sure don't want to be penalized for not getting a load to somewhere on time. While in training most of these companies pay you a weekly check and since I am not getting paid per mile why should I kill myself, and besides I am learning and to learn you want to take it slow, get to know the ins and outs.
I don't know if I even will like trucking but do want to see for myself. I may be happy driving OTR then again I may not , I may just get a job driving for a grocery chain or for pepsi or coca-cola, which I know here if you have a CDL pepsi and coke will hire you.
Well maybe I should just become an astronaut then I wouldn't have such a hard time to pick a company to work for, I would just work for NASA. Some companies have this I like and this I don't and this other company has this I like and this I don't, etc, etc. Well with the demand for truckers, if I go to a company and they treat me like ****, just take the truck back, get my stuff and say see ya.
