    Very few I am afraid,......I have been looking for local work for awhile with no luck....Clean CDL with Doubles/Tanker/Haz Mat.....And those taking apps. are getting hundreds for one or two positions.....
    In my opinion this is a very spooky time to go trucking........

    so basically i should just go to werner or prime

    prime basically told me they wouldnt bring me to orientation until they had a spot for me and it would december 3 or 10 and the trainer would pick me up the last day of orientation.

    I can't tell you where to go or when,...I would not leave a steady job to go trucking for anybody right now...I think the economy is just to bad...That is just my opinion,..others may vary...

    well considering the government wont help an upstanding citizen who pays taxes and such go to school, but will give someone who sits home and is a baby factory all the money they need to support their crack habit and 10 kids . some of us are forced to earn it and pay our way for things.
