how much experience needed to get a local truck driving job
I am a newly minted OTR truck driver & the only reason I am doing this is because I wanted to drive tractor trailers for local companies like UPS, FedEx, Pepsi & CocaCola & they all told me I had to have at least 1 year OTR experience.
Now my friends who are not truck drivers told me that they heard a minimum of 1-3 years OTR experience is needed.
Now are my friends correct? I told them what these companies told me & my friends told me that at their place of work, they were bragging that I am an OTR trucker & after my experience I want to get a local job & their co-workers told them I was told the wrong info.
I do not wish to do OTR for a long time because I want a steady paycheck because when the wheels stop, the payroll stops!
