  1. War on the Roads: Part 2

    by , 08.23.2008 at 03.25 PM (Becoming a Freight Broker)
    Trucking companies promote safety among their drivers in a variety of ways. New graduates from driving schools are placed into a driver training program in which the new driver is paired with a more experienced driver-trainer for six to eight weeks. The driver trainer continues the education the new driver started at driving school. The amount of experience the driver-trainer is required to have varies by company, with the lowest amount of experience being six months. Other company programs include ...
  2. Road Trip

    by , 08.22.2008 at 06.27 PM (My new career in trucking)
    I thought I'd take a little vacation before school started so I drove up to Ohio to visit relatives. I was surprised how much more careful I was driving around trucks, and keeping my speed down. I figured it'd be my luck to get in an accident or get a ticket after all these years, right before I start school. The trip took me about an hour more than usual, but there were no problems. When I got back home I was also happy to see that I got my acceptance letter to school and my approval from the TSA ...

  5. Shock and Awe (talking to recruits in Atlanta)

    by , 08.20.2008 at 07.02 AM
    I was sitting in the lobby of the hotel we use in Atlanta the other day (Monday) and a group of seven came in and plopped down in the lobby couches around where I was sitting...

    They were very excited and gung-ho about their orientation starting that day with "Super Service".. (an OTR company based out of Ky.).

    One of them asked me if I was going to orientation too....

    I said - "no, I am going to work in a few minutes..." ...
  6. the new 4 letter word

    by , 08.20.2008 at 02.48 AM
    For some time it seems to me that saying you're American is like using a 4 letter word. Being in the Army I travel a lot all over the world. I get the briefs about keeping a low profile etc. I'm beyond the point of appologizing for being American.

    On my first overseas tour I felt really out of place. I was stationed in Japan, btw I'm 6'1 and very pastie, I stick out just a bit. You know what I learned though. You have to show you are not the stereotype that everyone thinks you ...
  7. I need an experienced team partner

    by , 08.19.2008 at 04.01 PM
    Hi all,

    I will be starting with Schneider in about 1 week for training and then OTR. I have 6 months previous experience back in 2006, this is why I have to do the training thing over again - no big deal though, it best to be safe then sorry. Are there any experienced female drivers that are with Schneider who are currently looking for a team partner OTR? The list I have is all males, which is ok but it doesn't hurt to ask around in the meantime

    Thanks, comments are ...
