WI trucker 20+yrs.otr exp. need a trucking job to get back on the road
by steven c. wilder
I have been driving otr for over 20yrs.from july/1989,but i have move around a lot in that time. It is hard to find out how a company will treat you until you work them.
With some companies,things were good for a while,then the work slows down,the miles dropped and my take home pay was from $100 to $200 a week or sometimes $0.i found myself living on $100 road avds.
For the other companies,it was home time,at that time all i needed was to be home when they said i would be when they hired me. i had to fight with the dispatchers every time just to get home after 2 or 3 weeks out.
I am a very good driver,i have a good driving record,no DWI or DUI,ever. no felonies,no criminal background at all.
I will be getting back my haz-mat endorsement within four weeks after i go back to work. Overall i love the trucking life,its all i want to do,if i did not have a wife and two kids,i would crazy enough to it for free.
I AM A TRUCKER FOR LIFE. I have been having problems finding work with every carrier ive applied to,they will not tell me whats on my dat report. some carriers are telling me that i don't have enough months in the last 3 yrs.others are saying i have had too many jobs in the last 10yrs.
What about my safe driving record over the last 23yrs.no DWI & DUI no speeding tickets for the last 3yrs, doesn't that mean anything.
I want to work again. I will give my best to any carrier that will have me. I am looking for regional or dedicated work, lease purchase or company leading to L/P thanks much.
