So which company should I go with for being basically a rookie?
I have about 7 months tractor/trailer experience.But the company I worked for was really bad. I never knew if my paycheck would bounce or not sometimes with them.
Then I switched seats and picked up a job driving a city bus for the past 8 years. The pay is really good. But that's starting to go south because of the economy. So what experience I have is old and needs updated.
Anyways I have two companies that are interested in me and want me to come to train and work for them. One is Watkins & Shepard. They offer flat bedding what I did before. The other is CFI ( Central Ref ), and they are based local for me here in western Washington.
But both of course are for OTR positions for 48 and Canada. My wife has given me the green light to go trucking. With CFI a buddy of mine who has no experience at all wants to go there and run as a team with me.
I have no problem with that being that I can bring more money home running in a team.
But I keep thinking that Watkins & Shepard would be a better choice, almost all the drivers who have work for them. Have reported online that they are a good company.
So who to choose? Any thoughts are gladly excepted on this.
