I am looking to get back in a truck. I was trained at TDDS in Lake Milton Ohio. I lived on campus for 3 months, went to class 8 hours a day 5 days a week.I started in late sept. 2011 graduated late Dec.2011 with perfect attendance and on the honor roll. I went to work for US Express dollar general dedicated regional OTR. I pulled from the east coast to Iowa and Tenn. to Wisconsin and everywhere in between. I Drove solo and hand unloaded all the freight. I have 6 months with them... From Jan-July 2012. My driving experience starts in 1994 I Ran a milk route for the Amish. Yep I picked up big cans full of milk in a straight truck and took them to a cheese house outside of Hillsdale MI., Hard work ...I drove solo. I drove for Two Men and a Truck and a few other moving company's in and around Toledo OH. from 1998-2006. I worked for restaurants and catering company's cooking driving and delivering food and equipment as well as vending routes. When the economy dropped I found myself driving vans trucks and trailers repossessing and maintaining repossessed property's all over Ohio and MI. The company I worked for folded, so I went back into the restaurant business as a cook. I couldn't make any real money, so I decided to get a class A and give it a shot. I am licensed in OH. I have a class A With doubles triples hazmat tanker. The only endorsements I do not have are passenger and bus. I have no criminal record. 6 months ex. in a tractor and 53'dry van semi-trailer. After US EX I pulled Tanker from an asphalt plant to road crews full of seal coat and hot tar for a start up company for a month. The man never paid me and disappeared. Then I trained in a tractor and flat bed delivering construction materials. The guy told me I was doing just fine and my truck would be in any day for a month. I became frustrated and ran out of money, so I took a job installing and repairing satellite internet and T.V. service for digital dish all over Ohio. I quit to become a contractor in the same business for a company in MI. The day before I was to start I detached my bicep muscle. I had it surgically repaired December of 2013. It is completely heeled and I am 100% cleared by the doctors. I Went to work Driving refer delivering food and supply's for Al Peake and sons all over OH.,MI. and IN. until My medical card expired in May. The doctors said I had to have sleep apnea testing due to my B.M.I. I was cleared of sleep apnea in September. I started driving 10 ton dump and trailer with a back hoe and bob cat for a excavating company. The company is not busy,I don't make much and have no benefits so I'm looking for better work. I have two tickets but no points on my license. I have never had an accident or incident.

Who Has A Job For Me NEW
by: Anonymous

Given my experiences in the industry I understand why they told me in school that a very high percentage of drivers do not work in the industry after the first year. I don't give up easy and I try not to waste money or time so I am looking for a GOOD company to drive for. I am a good driver and the fact I have no accident or incidents supports that fact in all the years and miles in a truck should out weigh only having 6 months in a big truck. Consider that I drove for US EX dollar general and stayed for as long as I did should say something about my work ethic. The fact that I backed a 53' trailer in places where a lot of people couldn't put a 4 wheel van for months should speak to my skill and patience.

new medical gold rush $leep apnea NEW
by: Anonymous

First off I have never had any problem falling asleep when I didn't want to or behind the wheel AT ALL ! I did get fat waiting for my bicep to heal. I have never been a small man, or boy, I was 5'3" 230 in 8th grade. Try telling some "sleep specialist" in plain english you dont have a problem. After I tried going around and talking to theese people it came to the point where if I wanted any chance at all to keep the class A that I spent $7000 plus to get and 3 months of my life in a crappy dorm room shacked up with some jackxxx that pee'd on the toilet n left pub's all over, I had to comply with thier testing. B.T.W. if you want to know how to get diagnosed with sleep apnea it's easy, just take the test ! So I go to this sleep study center they glued theese flippin sensors all over and i mean all over from my head to my toes. I thnk the only 2 places they didnt shave n stick the damn things was on my private parts. then they attatched enough wires to the sensors NASA coulda launched the shuttle with them. I then get put in a hot room with a 1 flat pillow a light shining at me , a small fan across the room a hard hospital bed and all theese sensors n wires stuck to every side of my body that felit like I was on a circus nail bed when I layed down. Now if thats not enough they put a belt on mu gut n strapped it up and a pulse thing on my finger, made for a baby I think, that made my finger numb in about 30 seconds. Now its time to relax so we can start the test they said. No t.v. no radio no air no way to get comfortable or relax at all ! I have theese things jabbin me no matter what part of my body I sleep on. If thats not a rigged test I dont know what is. I did manage to fall asleep only to have them wake me up every time "because I was laying on the sensors and they lost signal" . some how I still passed the test but I'm fat snored and was restless so the "Expert" decided I was borderline and felt I should be treated anyway. so a month later Im fitted with a machine. I have no idea how anyone was ever talked into strapping mask hooked to an air pump on thier head. I never had a problem before but I sure did after that. It took me.. hours to fall asleep , if at all. I had all kinds of sinus problems, dry mouth (no matter how hight the humidifier was set) boils where the mask sat, headaches, tired all the time, it was horrible.
