If you're interested in dry van Westside Transport is out of Cedar Rapids and has a terminal in Glenwood. Guaranteed pay if you don't get miles. I'm just like you was in the trades 25yrs and needed a change. Good company. PM if you have any questions.
Thanks for the replys and some prospective companies to look at in my area, gives me something to do during my hour lunch break at school. I should have added I have a wife and a 15 month old, and the goal is to eventually be home everyday but i realize I may need to be OTR for a year or two to get the experience for one of the better local driving jobs. Out 5 home 2 regional work is about the most away I can do, i realize some of these home weekends are just a 34 hour reset and back out, but i can grind a couple years if need be. Im glad you liked Holland, I may have a foot in the door already with who i know, but i will still be putting in several other applications just in case.
Tell your classmates about these choices, before they hear the sales pitch about how wonderful a Dollar General Account is with some other companies. Those Dollar General Accounts are a fast way to derail a new trucking career quickly.
Ah, the positive actions of a new recruit, before the weight of trucking crushes that fragile spirit. Reminds me of me in the late 70's.When coming from a different job background, trucking can look mighty promising, but be advised, all those things you mentioned could come back to haunt you, crummy ins. no overtime, finger print( hand unload) a load, possibly for nothing, and you just might have made more hanging drywall, and you could go home at night. There are tons of companies, and you came to the right place, but as a warning, many are unprepared for what trucking lies ahead, and 35% of new drivers quit within the 1st 90 days. Best of luck and many here can give great advice on a company, but they all require dedication, and that may wane a bit as you sit in a forsaken truck stop in Nebraska on New Years Eve.
