    Hello again

    So I was hired by Danny Herman and I start my orientation this week and training next week. I'm curious about how the training will go. Has anyone in here gone through the training program through Danny Herman? It's 300 hours with a trainer- so I'm just wondering what to expect. I'm a bit nervous lol

    Thanks in advance

    What to expect?

    As discussed elsewhere, recently -- that depends in large part on the quality of your trainer (or the lack thereof).

    I survived -- after 4 1/2 days -- with a crummy trainer, at Schneider.

    If I can do that -- my guess is you do will every bit as well -- & probably better (300 hrs is just a tad more than 4.5 days :p).

    Be sure to show up with a sense of adventure -- AND....a sense of humor.

    Good luck, Driver.....:salute:

    DO NOT expect to make a lot of money....your first year....in the current freight market....pulling dry van loads.....at DH.

    You are basically now in an apprenticeship -- & your main objective....over the next 2 years, or so -- is to REALLY LEARN how to drive a big rig (& also, how to back one up).

    Your homework assignment, between now & the 1st day of DH orientation --

    Sit down....& write this out 1,000 times:

    "Whenever in any doubt -- GET OUT, & WALK ABOUT"

    Thank you! I'm so excited and yes, I just want to learn as much as possible. I was lucky enough to have an awesome instructor work with me alot on my backing- 45 degree and my angles! So I'm feeling more confident. Super excited and nervous all at the same time!! :D

    Danny Herman, or the name, at least , goes way back to when I was green. 70s and was started by Danny Herman himself, with one truck in 1964. While I'm sure in the big truck stop in the sky by now, any company, and the Badger has many, that still honors the original founder, and has the word God in their mission statement, well, not much can top that. Keep us posted, eh?:thumbup: Remember, no question too tough for the peanut gallery here.

    -- 300 hours with a trainer generally means 300 hours behind the wheel, not total time on the truck

    Aww yes, the good ol mixing religion and business :rolleyes:

    Guaranteed they've lost some business and drivers simply because they are a different "faith"
