Not everyone understands

Trucking is not a job it’s a lifestyle am I right? Sounds stupid but it’s true. You work long ass hours, see some of the most beautiful sights in the world and some of the worst. You eat bad food on the road but meet good people. To me the road is home, always has been. You shouldn’t truck if you just need a job, because you’re setting yourself up to fail. You truck because you’re ready for a challenge and you want to make a change in your life…

Disappointed

For about two minutes today I thought I hit the jackpot after I was told I was hired then they asked about driving. I don't drive and now I don't have a job either. Oh the calamity!

Which is best

Practical miles or HHG...what’s better for drivers??
I hear some people saying practical is best and some end up making more $$ with HHG. I'm pretty new so I don't know which one is right

Practical is better

We got hit with some serious snow recently and even though I am trained to handle this as a trucker and I always follow my own rule which is... Do not drive any faster than you can see....I still have that pit in my stomach. How do I feel more confident and not nervous when the road conditions are horrible?

If ur anything like me? Im totaly confident with my winter driving skills. I humble myself daily .never boasting or saying im a…

Unexpected!!!

I normally drive for Lyft on the weekends but I decided to try a Tuesday this past week. I had my longest ride yet to date! I drove her about two hours. She was heading to visit her boyfriend who lived out there but her car was busted. Nice girl. We listened to the radio and talked. She ended up tipping me $100 for the trouble. I drove home with a big smile on my face. Grateful for long rides and kind people!!

This is such a great story! Hard work definitely pays off. Thank you for sharing this with the community!

Choosing the right job

Hi, I signed up with one company today which is about 45 minutes away from where I live. I was told that the other job has asked a reference about me which is closer to home. Now I may have to choose. The one that’s further away could lead to a long term position in the fall with great benefits such as summers off and the other would be less pay and no summers off. Any suggestions?

It really depends on what your looking for. I recommend writing the pros and cons for both jobs. This will give a better…

I really miss working

I got fired back in January because my car broke down and I forgot to call in. I miss working more than anything I need something to do during the day. I miss accomplishing things for a company I'm proud to work for

Need some advice

Hi everyone, I'd like some neutral advice. I'm sort of at a crossroads right now and figuring out which way to go. I feel it's time after sacrificing all these years to do what will make me happy for a change.
My family supports me (everyone in the household but me is unemployed right now, so where I go, they go. :) The big issue is I have an elderly mom who refuses to be mobile. She depends on me to get around and does not get out otherwise…

I think you may know what the right answer is for you, but maybe you're looking for some confirmation that you're doing the right…
