Full of promise or full of crap?
I am currently seeking a trucking company that will offer not only training and employment, but also the opportunity top lease a truck upon graduation since I see long haul trucking as the last job I will ever have.
I am just coming out of the coal mining industry where I operated a Caterpillar 785 Rock Truck. After talking with many OTR truckers I have decided to make this career switch. Just need my CDL.
My brother in law is also a OTR driver and he has warned me of getting into this, telling me that many long haul drivers don’t get the miles they were promised and make barely enough to make their payments and buy fuel.
He also said trucking recruiters are a lot like military recruiters...telling you just what you want to hear.
So bottom line...what are my chances I will get what I am hoping for ?
