    Just wanted to introduce myself. Trucking is going to be a second career for me - burnt out from the first career and looking for something different. School starts in the spring for me, I want to wait out the winter. Have been lurking here, as well as on another forum that starts with the word "Truck", but figured I would take the dive and sign up for an account. This forum is an excellent source of info.

    Would ultimately like to drive a trash truck or cement mixer locally. I am trying to figure out the best path to that end while I am here.

    Where are you in Maine? Probably get some job leads from drivers on here that live in or near your area.
    You can probably have a job lined up by the date you finish cdl school.
    Dump, trash, cement mixer jobs, aren't that difficult to find right out of cdl school.
     
    n14 Thanks this.
