The job's what you make it, and doing your research is always a good idea. I don't work in Ontario I work out of the maritimes but I'd completely disagree with the previous posting know all, if you've got the right mindset its a great job. But if you haven't don't do it, trucking isn't going to change to suit you, and doing your homework before you commit is a fine idea.'88K100 Thanks this.
anyone who condones the industry by accepting poor wages and unethical treatment is part of the problem and we'll never get anywhere by continuing to be ignorant. OP is about to climb into the grinder and should be made aware of it. The proponents on here have been driving for decades and already have placements, they are old recruits and have NO CLUE what it's like to enter the industry as a new driver these days. It's a ####-show of disasters, abuses, and illegalities. If you advise anyone to enter this industry you are doing them a cruel disfavor.BigHossVolvo Thanks this.
