If you are married driving over the road then you better have a strong relationship or you will be divorce
If you think you nailed that interview or the recruiter said,
Keep in touch, don't just sit and wait for the phone to ring with a job offer. Instead, be proactive. There are things you should do after a job interview that can increase the odds of getting a second interview or landing a job offer.
I just recently split from my wife and I'm really down on my luck. Bills are piling up and I'm having a hard time finding a job that pays enough to keep the lights on. I don't have a college degree and all the jobs I qualify for pay barely minimum wage. I'm getting depressed and don't know what to do. I'm one more late payment away from being tossed on the street.
I came across an ad for an opening at Ryder Trucking that seems to offer decent... see more
I'm not a truck driver, but my husband is. I've been on the road with him for many years. I've been a driver manager, manager, dispatcher in trucking. By comments I've seen about some of your dispatchers. Sounds like your company needs to retrain them or the driver needs a new job. Dispatchers are not perfect, but your not their only driver.

I want to share a story to give you all a good laugh. Few wks ago was my first long haul in this area and I was coming down a hill just west of Milwaukee and must have missed a sign that warned drivers to shift to a lower gear….
Long story short, I lost my brakes to overheating, side-swept a utility pole, and jackknifed my trailer. The trailer door somehow burst open, and a decent amount of my shipment went FLYING out. I lost about 2,000 pounds... see more
I have been trying to apply for a few days now. Can anyone help me out?
Anyone else have an interview Sept. 16th... And

Live 2 blocks from the UPS warehouse, put my app in for that twilight shift, now I'm waiting on that call from the UPS network...
All I can say is I applaud all you Truck Driver's. If people only knew how difficult that job really is we would think twice before ever saying an unkind word about those men and women who truly deliver!
It takes real talent to maneuver that type of equipment its hard for me just to back my car up at times let alone an 18 wheeler. Especially with all the other types of vehicles and level of drivers out there on the roads and highways. Non truck... see more
