Michigan Driver seeking a trucking job!
I had to step away from Trucking, due to a Terminal Father! I am a Veteran, drove Fuel Trucks in the military! I started Trucking again in 2011, went to Driving School to have a Refresher Course (TDI/CDI)in Sanford, FL. Contracted with a Carrier as a Leased Owner Operator!
I don't have the money to buy a Truck today, to start Trucking again! (Or I would just do that!)I was actually trying for the last year and a half or so, to get Capital to purchase equipment! However, due to the US Economy and the 2016 Election, that was not happening! We had also been given many other "excuses", as to why we were not given the funding!
But Election Year and US Economy, seemed to be the "main" ones! So,since, they seemed to have started this (Recent 3 yr. "thing" w/experience vs. 5 or so!) in the interim, As some of the other people here, much of my two and 1/2 years or so, of experience in the last 6/7 years, has fallen "Off the Radar"! My Father is STILL Terminal! But, as of here forward, my "helping do his Comfort Care, is not needed"!
I actually had two short Trucking Jobs last year! However, the one company wanted me to run illegal (Or were not familiar with HOS! U decide!) The other company "broke my Trust" on the road. They "Claim", they would give me my Contract back! But Frankly, when I gave them an exact start date(per their request) with in about 5 minutes they start having all these "Problems" with my Pug,(That they knew already, petted, gave water too & "loved on", so to speak! and always loved him!)emailing me about him! Then they started not returning emails or phone calls, etc.
They never even called (That their Contract Recruiter stated; "She had to do" etc, etc,)to "Confirm" my Restart Date for and with the Company! They also knew all about my Father!
