Smokin' and Shootin'
Smokin' and shootin'
Great site! Thanks for helping those who are considering entering the trucking bizz (me). I have a million questions, yet I realize I cant enter a novel here. Here are a few:
1.) Seeing how trucking companies have their own school, it seems apparent that they actually profit from it. In a way it seems like if I do them a favor (go to their school instead of community college) they would be more likely to do me a favor (hire me).
2.)Although we smokers always have a plan of quitting, its good to know what to expect from companies in general if I dont succeed at quitting immediately. As a company driver, what do they allow for smoking in a truck? No need to elaborate on Hazmat loads.
3.)If I were to go to community college for my training, would I still have to go OTR with a trainer for X amount of time before being solo?
4.) I have a CCW (Carry concealed weapon) permit. Naturally I want to carry while out on the road. Do companies have a general rule on this, or is it "dont ask dont tell?"
