Its been 6 years since I have been in a truck and yes I have to start over due to me letting my CDL go, big mistake on my part. I drove for 2 other companys I will not mention names. One has a school and one was a lease purchase program. So I have made a decision to go with FFE. I know your going to hear bad things about any company you go with, I know this. I am going to their new school in Ft. Worth and looking forward to it. If your thinking of going to a truck driving school like FFE or anywhere else due your research and don't look just at the negative but the positive of the company. If you never drove a truck before dont think your going to become BILLY BIG RIG over night, you have to pay your dues. Look at it from my point I was out of a job for over 2 years. I tried starting my own company which a nothing to due with trucking, and went out of business in 09. I got everything in order now to go back to driving. I have thought long and hard about going back to driving, which I suggest to any new driver. I suggest to any new driver get all your paper work together and go to your Doctor and get a physical before going to a company. This is because you dont want to waste your time and get there and failing the physical. I suggest if you where in college or going to school get your transcripts for the time you where there, they will need that for employment varification.
Now for all the negative talk about dispatch. I failed to mention that I work as a dispatcher for one of those companys for awhile. Dispatching trucks is like a big chest game. They are not out to get you, they will and can not make you run illegally. if you ever get a chance go sit in on dispatch, it will make you appreciate your job and theirs.
Will that is it for now keep the dirty side down and truck it up................
