Getting started

Hi. I'm Ginny. I have my cdl but have had nothing but problems getting started. I went to school at a mega company, got my cdl but didn't get the road hrs..still being charged 6k. Disaster from the start. I actually got to drive 10k miles with small company in SC..which I wasn't covered by their insurance so there were things I couldn't do. So basically I need a trainer for road time. Ive spoken to several companies and been turned down. Is it possible to obtain without starting over in another school?

Depending on where you are from, VERIHA trucking is located in Wisconsin. They will hire and put you with a trainer. My son had to go thru them after Schneider screwed him over. Tell them Rhonda Cody/ Robert Maskell sent you. Most of the higher ups remember me...i worked for them for 4 1/2 years.

Most carriers, will train you if you can pass there road test( not hard). Call bigger carriers if you don't like them you can go somewhere else after you give them a year.

Try an owner operator with their own authority. They can teach you better than any school ever will provided they have decades of experience and not just a 5-10 year wonder.

hey girl, with the money they charge I would take it up with the head machos in this so called school, & make it known about the sloppy training, someone else is probably going to get killed or kill someone !else! STAND TALL & demand your monies worth go high up, even to the DOT if u have to, nipp it in the butt now Good Luck!!
