    He's gotta be the happiest cop on earth. If that driver can't leverage his way out of that ticket he should be shot.

    Good luck to you! My husband completed orientation just over 2 wks ago. So far so good. He is busy and that is the main thing, doesn't sit around for very long between loads, I think the longest was 2 hrs. He usually has a preplan before he drops his current load. He is still very new and adjusting to the JCT way, but all in all things are going great!
    fr8tshkr, Jarbo and dabs Thank this.

    I have a question about the "truck selection."

    do they give an opportunity to drive the trucks around for a little bit to see if you will like it? If not, do they give the opportunity to switch trucks before 60 or 90 days or whatever? Personally, I've only driven a Volvo while in class. It's a decent truck, a well used lease truck, but perfectly fine for a college. It has a short sloped nose though. I would like to drive a long nose pete or KW classic to see the difference. I know most newb companies have cheap fleet trucks like Volvos, Columbias, etc. Nothing that really gives the idea of a long hood.

    Also, I made the mistake of deleting a lot of the messages I have and I forgot who I was talking to about JCT... sooo.... if whoever it was sees this, send me a PM so i can have your name ready if any other questions pop up.

    I could use some advice on JCT i have done alot of research on the company and believe they offer a great oppertunity for a trucker who is interested in being more than a company driver.I need a contact that I can talk to their not including the regular recruiters.I have a spotless driving record and DAC but It wasn't until the economy hit the skids that i began seeing trucking in a different light,and realised how much i wanted to be more invested in my own success,I will be 46 this year and really want to be more than a company driver for whatever time I have left in this industry.I really enjoy reading you guys post and appreciate any advice.Be safe out there.
    dabs Thanks this.
