Women Dont Have it More Difficult in My Experience

by Shannon Riffle
(Dayton, Oh)

I'm a driver with 5 years experience. I recently changed things up by driving for a company that specializes in hazmat tanker, roll off boxes, flat and van transport. I'm currently 1 of 2 women who drive for Triad.

Everyone at the company is super helpful and friendly. I couldn't ask for a better group of people to work with. As far as the job being more difficult, it's not more difficult for a lady. I found that all of us drivers have some sort of challenge that we face and do what we can to make our job a bit easier.

When dealing with the CB, I learned that of you get a driver who isn't as polite, saying something witty and sarcastic will make them stop most of the time. Ive meet a lot of awesome and wonderful friends through trucking and wouldnt trade it for the world.
