Daddy and Kalyn Abigail

I have about 2 and a half years experience driving semi tractor trailer. Mostly Flatbed but some experience with dry van.

Recently I've spent 11 months OTR getting jobs through brokers and on GET LOADED. I have a Nc. Drivers license CDL-A with Hazmat Doubles Triples and Tanker endorsements. I also have my TWIC card.

I thought I would be able to be home more often after a year. My boss didn't see it that way and we parted company. I have a little girl who just turned 19 months, i would like to be able to spend time with her. Bigger trucking companies with their forced dispatch, and the driver isn't a man he's a piece of equipment, attitude.

Home on the weekend for 34 hours and being days away if an emergency arises, isn't my idea of being a good daddy.

I have other things to do around home and I need a solid few days a week with my daughter. If I were home nightly, a day or two on the weekend would be fine. I would be willing to work Sunday through Thursday, or three on four off or four on three off, or even seven on seven off.

If I could have a set schedule, I could plan my off time accordingly.

Is there anyone out there who feels the same way or has the same needs for on time off time. Please call me, I want to work. (419)-308-8944 or E-mail Ichallengeuall@yahoo.com

Flexible trucking schedules NEW
by: Hervy

Wesley, try out these guys in Charlotte i think you might be a good fit. local flexible trucking jobs in Charlotte NC.

Plus I commend you on seeking options to fit in with what you feel is your role as a father. If you continue to seek even if you have to do something else in the mean time, you will find it.

Anon, I feel where you are coming from man. It's tough out here trucking, especially if you don't have things planned out from the beginning and especially back when you started. I imagine there wasn't many options in trucking.

Things have changed. lol. Yeah, I know.

No not all of the change is bad. There are many more options for drivers. The economy, technology, society and such as increased possibilities and society has shifted it demands.

There are all types of needs that are not being filled not just in trucking but in life and the work place in general.

Now people must shift their minds and understand that these opportunities exists. There is even a way to connect to launch or locate these opportunities. However, still many people are not on board so they aren't as effective as they could be.

People are waking up though. Things will only get better as more and more companies realized that they can get better drivers if they also operate in a way that they can be a fit for a driver instead of seeing him/her as a robot behind the wheel.

There is hope for what Wesley wants companies and drivers are out there and I am doing what I can to connect them here. If you ever hear someone else wanting a part time flexible trucking job please refer them to my site man. Thanks, Hervy

Best thing you can do is get a job not in trucking. I have drove for years and me and my wife. She raised the kids and worked to while I was gone all week. You have to remenber the freight has to move. And if you cannot do it there is someone who will. It is either drive or find you a job working 9 to 5. There is no trucking job out there like you are looking for. I have done local and otr. And you never have no time off.
