    How was the orientation? You will be running coast to coast dedicated? I have a trucker friend in Escondido that may be interested if they are still hiring.

    Don't know how they are to work for but they advertise for drivers like every month. Put in application and was told no openings for single drivers even thought their ad say they were hiring for it.

    almost all their work is c2c team driving. what solo runs are usually done by one of the senior drivers and are only a one day shot most of the time... just a delivery or pickup then back to the yard....

    yes , teams. New drivers go into a trainee status for like 3 months..., with my experience its sounding line one or two more turns and i will be off trainee status .... Basically i am learning the dedicated side of the hauls.... The rest is do as you go.... And i know how to drive and load and all that stuff....

    This is a pretty good outfit. Just wish there was less hurry up and wait in this business....

    And i would much rather have an opened up truck , no cut back motors, and a dedicated truck.... Slip seat sucks bit time... I have a 70 mph volvo right now but probably gonna have to turn it back and get that cascadia back.... Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!

    Jimroy,
    I live in Valley Center. Might try to go back to trucking in couple months. Have you heard of Hidden Valley Transportation in Escondido? Wondering if you had anything to say about them.
    Thanks, Bry
    ps, I want to avoid team at this time if I can.
