Is getting your CDL worth it?

A friend of mine has been considering getting their CDL for trucking. I was looking into it for them and found some benefits: training can be as short as 3 weeks, high levels of job security, competitive salaries averaging $39,000/year, part-time options, etc.

All of this sounds awesome but I was wondering if anyone with personal knowledge about CDL training/trucking in general could provide some insight or advice. Thanks!

It was fun job for me straight out of high schooll. And being that I did it in hawaii. Got to meet a lot of famous people. The pic physicals are a pain in the butt to do every other year. And depending on what company you work for the "random" drug test can be any where from every year to every other month

I don't have the experience to answer your question fully but I can attest to it being a fairly secure field to place yourself into. My bf has been a career driver for over 15+ years and there is a high demand for this line of work. It would be helpful for you to get a Hazmat along with the CDL you'll have more options that way. Make sure you have a very clean driving record prior to this. You don't partake in drugs (they do randoms all the time). It's an industry that seems to be age immune for the most part so being older will not be hit with age discrimination. It's a male dominated industry primarily that's either good or bad, you decide. The pay varies extensively from place to place so do the benefits. Do your research on companies as they are not all equal and many will embellish how much you will get as take home pay. You won't really feel that comfortable driving commercially until close to a year into it, or so I've been told. As always, these days it's about who you know not always what you know. Have a friend who does this for a living or a friend of a friend? Get them to help you get a job with a decent company. Hopefully this helps some and good luck! We all need it out there these days. One more person employed is a win win for all of us job seekers.

Driving for Enterprise Rent A Car

I have been driving part time for Enterprise for 3 months now. Here are some thoughts on this job.

It was fairly easy to apply this job. Its just a matter of seeing if there is a opening in your area. Like in my case I work for the Bremerton team. We also have others in the area who do the same as I, like Tacoma for example.

This job also has a lot of down time. As we drive as crew to different locations to move cars. We can start in Bremerton and end up in Port Angeles for example. Thats two hours you are sitting a the crew van. Doing nothing. Good thing tho. You are still getting paid. Bad thing you can be very bored if you don't bring something to do.

Sometimes you might have conflicts if you fellow drivers you are stuck in the van with for long periods of time.

You will always get a half hour lunch. Ours tend to be around 11 to 12. Its variable depending on what you are doing that day. You can end up at any of the Enterprise locations in your area for lunch.

What I like about the job:

  1. I get to drive many kinds of vehicles, sports cars, trucks, SUVs, vans, among others. Along with all the many brands the make cars today.

  2. Flexible hours. They are very lax when it come to taking time off. We have one guy who drives with us who has taken more time off then he has worked to go hunting and fishing. Even taking time off at last minute.

  3. Getting experience at driving. I have driven a whole lot of miles over that last 3 months. Around 3600 or so miles so far.

What I don't like driving for Enterprise.

  1. The insane traffic that one can experience. If you know the Puget Sound area. You will know of how bad it can get between Federal Way and just passed the Tacoma Dome. Not a knock against Enterprise as much as it is related to this geographical area.

  2. I wish I could get more hours. This job is only part time. I can't get anything more then around 28 hours a week. The average tends to be around 20 to 25 hours a week.

  3. Some times some of the things they have you drive are frustrating, annoying or somewhat dangerous. Like driving the 18 passenger vans(Or what we call Swags) to a location. No one that I drive with likes these things, but we have to do it anyway.

Is it worth it? For me it is. As I can have time to try to build of a side gig. Lot of older folks will do this job to supplement their retirement. I am the youngest in my crew by a wide margin. All the others are retired. If might be a good idea if you need supplemental income to apply for this job.

Thats all I have to say about Enterprise at this point.

Hey Mike Grauer Jr this is some excellent feedback. I didn't know you had accepted a part time gig but it makes sense to take on side job that offer you flexibility while you continue to look around for that career job or entrepreneurial opportunity.

Supplemental income is in big demand not only for retirees looking to come back into the workplace but by full time workers in need of a second income to help make ends meat.

The details you offer on the Driver job with Enterprise is invaluable. I'll go ahead and include the companies career page on this message to facilitate the application process for any interested members. Thanks again Mike Grauer Jr . Have an Awesome Workweek!

Background Check Failed

I just got a call from the job i had and they told me my background check failed due to a car crash back in april. It was not my fault. The other party in the crash were high and drunk and tried to offer me a beer right in front of the cops. I am 19 now and its been screwing everything up. I cant get any driver jobs until that clears up. The lesson that i learned from this is that not all jobs are guaranteed so you just have to keep moving forward and making sure that you do not let one job bring you down.

A tip off - Enterprise.

A friend of mine works for Enterprise Rent A Car as a driver. He has told me they are always looking for part time drivers. Once you are in you could get higher paying positions. He also told me its great for people who want to supplement their income. For example he told me many of the drivers he works with are old retired navy guys who are looking for some extra money to supplement their pensions. Just an option for you folks.

If you like to drive, but don't have your own car, you can always look into becoming a cab driver. You could also look into shuttle driving for a medical center, retirement home, or other facility where you could feel like you were helping people get around who otherwise couldn't. I did a general search for Driver jobs in your area so you can look and see what's available. Hope this helps!
