Two truckers share their stories

Meet Nailah and Martin!

Two different people who truly love what they do, which is driving a truck.

Sometimes in life, you need to think outside of the box.

When a friend suggested that Nailah attend truck driving school she stood in front of her in high heels and a dress and thought NO way was this for her. Today she happily says, “I am in a place where I don’t have to want for anything. I am happy. I don’t have bill collectors calling me…

Stupid to share a cup. Lack of education darling. Nobody's really worth an that when they are both nothing without the one…

So discouraging

I had an application in at a local job. They seem to be very interested in me before I applied and asked me to apply. Now they are acting like they never mentioned that I should put an application in for a job. It was with a Transit company and you have to have a CDL as a matter fact they mentioned I need to get a CDL learner's permit. Now they're acting like they never said that. Overall it is so discouraging when people try to encourage you to…

That is just low. They better have just gotten names mixed up.

Wife of a future trucker

Hi, my hubby is currently going to school to get his CDL. We have two small children (an almost one year old and an almost two year old). I have no idea how to prepare myself for this change in career or how to help my children cope with not seeing their daddy much. I am supportive in his decision, and I know that it means some changes for everyone. I’m looking for advice on what I can be doing to make sure I’m not putting any more stress on him…

Sometimes running team is best. Run 3-4 weeks at a shot, 1 week off. If you have at least 2 yrs under belt find a O/O that will do…

My advice to people interested in working at #FDFOilFieldSsevices as a #CDLDriver ...

There are so many cdl jobs in west Texas.Fdf was ok.If you want to get some experience they will hire ou with only 3 months driving exp.But you will be giving a road test and pre trip inspection and a backing test before your hired.If i was single i probably would not have quit.

That's a great insight Terry Grummert ! So you'd mainly recommend this type of job for single people?

Starting Over

I want to start by saying I went to a small trucking school to get my CDL where they didn’t teach me to drive but showed me how to get my CDL. Then I started working for a company that pushed miles but really wasn’t big on training. I’ve been driving about a year and a half. I’m nowhere near as good as I should be. I would like to start over with a company devoted to training. I have a few issues on my DAC report. Any suggestions?
