Trying to get back on the road.
by Sherida Gadson
I am a 28 year old experienced driver who has been out of a tractor trailer for a little over three years.
Right now I am currently a independent contractor for a drive away company, so im sort of still driving trucks just without trailers.
I really miss driving tractor trailer.
When I got my CDL-A I was young and inexperienced. I trained through Schneider and drove with them for 6 months. I joined J.B. hunt, then USA truck.
I originally stopped driving so i could go to college and at least get an associates degree, but my living situation became terrible and i was moving from state to state but still managed to stay in school.
I am more mature now and making better decisions. The job i am with now is barely paying me and i am finding myself getting back into the same predicament.
I'm working hard and it seems like for nothing, but yet I'm still sticking with them. It's been 8 months now that i have been with them. I would love to get back into tractor trailer.
