    I'm trying to find a company to take me on, but its becoming just about impossible currently with Covid-19. I received my CDL last year, went out for a week and had to come home for family issues and I'm ready to go back out.

    I've tried Schneider, was set to go to orientation and then that got canceled, same with Knight. I've tried a few other companies, no one is sending trainees out with trainers right now. I'm based out of Washington State and looking preferably for Dry Van OTR, but would be willing to try out reefer right now.

    Maybe @Chinatown has some suggestions. It is a difficult time to get hired right now but keep searching and hopefully something will turn up.
    I wish you the best.

    Sometimes drivers get burned when they go home for 'family issues'. Alot of drivers have a tough time the first few weeks out on the road but most stick to it instead of high tailing it back home.

    Not sure why you are busting his chops. He simply said to the OP welcome and good luck. Might want to take some deep breaths or some meditation to get your self over being such an angry person.

    Yeah I get that, but what would you do when your mother gets hospitalized for a few weeks and has no one to take care of her while she recovers?

    Yes, I agree, I'd go home for that reason myself.

    freight has dropped 40 percent in a month.
    More and more truckers are being laid off everyday.
    The mega's are backed up in their schools with
    DMV offices closed right now.
    Maybe someone is still hiring.
    But 1 week experience, basically none,is gonna
    Put you at the bottom of the list.

    If you can't get on with a mega, I have no idea
    Where else to send you too.
    We're all just hanging to what we got right now.
