I'm going to apply there this week. They have an opening I'm interested in.
I am wondering about input on OD. Do have some questions. I've read through the forum. Anything to add?
I see they check work history closely.
For a period of 6 years. I bounced around a few low level jobs. I have to refer to the State Employment office records just to remember them all. I usually put down.... I did these because I needed physical work. They weren't very good jobs. Some awful. Just low level stuff like custodian, etc.
Would I have any problem with OD employment if I put that?
I had to go to truck driving to get a decent job where I would be left alone. People are fighting at work. They aren't working together. It's awful. So.... The last 7 years have been working for one employer. Driving a trash truck. Was stable until the company was bought. They didn't want me. Basically laid off. Technically told: You just don't fit in. rofl ...
Before that... I had a career for 18 years. Can't do that anymore. Too demanding. Talk about a recipe for diabetes. As a result.... I have learned much in health. Could contribute much to other drivers knowledge to take better care of themselves. Would be a help to any truck driving company.
See any problem with OD?
Otherwise.... Am wondering. This is a Line Haul position with OD. Does OD allow people to take their pet with them? Reasonable of course. Only if going long. Will be out of town for an extended time. Would love to get a doggie. I won't if I have to leave that poor creature outside during winter. I won't do that. Even for one day. Have a cat right now. They're easy.
I have an old high school buddy who drove gasoline for many years. He thinks a job with OD is a better job than anything with anybody hauling gasoline. Thoughts?
I'd like to ask other questions as I come up with them. Appreciate any thoughts.
