    .. if you notice by the threads we encourage people to not enter the industry, I'm very sorry you are tempted, best of luck though!

    So says the old hand with a few months experience.
    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.

    OP,, I think you have tough time getting phone # or email addresses here
    I don’t recommend the industry either but you can always leave if it’s not your thing and add it to your resume
    Good Luck

    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.
