I thought Dick was a nice guy when I was in the 10-day program # W/S Missoula.
The grade they teach you to downshift on is 6%, but is quite...
I concur with those that say move. IMO avoid any state that had a big housing boom/bust. CA, AZ, NV, FL.
Seriously? wow. Might be time to move out east. :biggrin_25525:
Sounds like things haven't changed much at W/S.
I've had the same result. There are waiting lists of drivers trying to get a seat at some OTR companies here. I'm on the verge of leaving the...
Congrats. Which school did you graduate from? Keep us posted during your training period if you can. Good luck!
Is anyone struggling to find OTR work in AZ? (running out of Phoenix.)
Now you have my curiosity peaked. But I'll mind my own business. :biggrin_25525:
Isn't it ridiculous? The only thing I can figure is that it is a scam designed to force drivers back into training. Or perhaps the insurance...
True. Knight is currently running ads in the Phoenix classifieds for drivers to run to San Diego/LA ports. TWIC required of course.
Those are especially troubling questions in the current environment for drivers. If your son already has a job with benefits I wouldn't quit.
I'm running into much the same thing. Was invited to orientation at May and they japped out at the last minute. They say all their trucks are full...
Not suprising in this economic climate. Not to mention W/S will finance your tuition, put you up in a room, and toss you the keys as a solo driver...
The problem with W/S is getting OUT of Montana. :biggrin_25525:
Yes. Pier 1.
Only the time my volvo crapped out climbing the Grapevine.
Understood. I appreciate your well thought-out post on that. I guess its more accurate to say that its not impossible, just not an easy thing to do.
Agreed. You can't get a local gig without OTR experience. And you can't go back OTR if you have been driving local for a year or 2. I guess its...
You got that right. :biggrin_2554:
When I finished school in 2007 companies were all over me like a bad suit. (Or like flys on a turd.) Amazing how fast everything went down the toilet.
Yep. If you wanna lump freight you'll love it there. Make some extra money doing it though.
