i am a NY truck driver with 10yrs experience seeking a job!!
I became a professional over the road truck driver in 1997. I have approximately 10 years experience. I pulled 48 and 53' dry van and reefers nationwide incident free.
anyone can learn to dry a truck, but learning to be a truck driver is another class of instruction and i was able to achieve that with experience. i got pinched with my first and only DUI just over 6 years ago, and payed for it dearly.. hell, i'm still paying for it even though my cdl is clean as a whistle.
Descent companies are giving me a hard time now to hire.. some say to go back to school. I've been to school and i have trained. my school days are over.. however, if i were asked to go out with a trainer for a few days to a week, to get my feet wet again, i would probably go for that.
I was a good driver and had excellent communication skills with the customer, brokers, and dispatch. i always maintained professionalism and respected the hard work ethic.
I never thought i was going to miss this business as much as i am.
When i pulled off the road i did finish college and became a therapist for a nursing facility which i was layed off from just about a year ago.
Since then i have been moonlighting for cab companies and doing odd jobs while collecting unemployment which isn't even close to pay the bills.
I'm still desperately searching for work. i presently reside on long island, NY and definitely have no problem relocating once i get back in the swing of things again.
what i am looking for is a small, over the road outfit with up to par equipment who will allow me to show them the skills i once had. I know i didn't forget, but i just need someone to give me a chance to show them that i still got it and i can still get the job done in a safe, professional manner.
