I don’t know so much about being a novice as much as just not taking the job very seriously.
Many customers’ security and/or yard jockeys use a CB for communication. How are they to communicate with you, if you don’t have a radio?
To me, it just looks unprofessional, to not have a radio. They’re fairly cheap to buy. When one is in the presence of a situation that requires a radio to communicate, one should have a CB.

I occasionally hear useful info over the CB, but if you really want to talk to people, get your amateur radio license and install an HF ham radio.

Drivers are too busy watching movies and playing with their phones to use a CB anymore.
I saw this recently.
Driver had phone attached to the steering wheel with a movie playing.
