    I had to go over the road to gain experience and now I'm local and happy. You think I liked it? I wanted to ***** kill myself.

    No offense but I hope you're unsuccessful in your quest to cut in line.
     
    ClassB, Danajc and 207nomad Thank this.

    We had a dispatcher quit after 4 hours, got his wife to phone in and say he was not returning as job too stressful

    Picture this: 40 year-old latina immigrant, never drove a truck, never saw an oil well, no work history in the USA. Guess what? This Brazilian walked in to Halliburton and after a couple of interviews, got her paid CDL training and a JOB. Was it easy? Hell no. Is it possible? This is the true land of opportunities!
