Right now i'm a Senior in high school. Here lately I have had a big interest in being a truck driver. Something about having my own truck and traveling the United States sounds fun to me. When I graduate from high school I plan on going and getting an associates degree in business. Since companies won't hire people that are younger than 21, I might as well do something. Anyways my plans are to work for either Schneider or Swift. Right now Schneider is leading the pack. My dad worked for Schneider and he seemed to like it, plus I heared the training is really good. If anybody can give me some advice on which one to choose please tell me! The cool part is that if I become a truck driver I would be one of many drivers in the family, 0there's way too many to name.
The one thing that I'm looking forward too is the CDL drivers test! Yes I know this sounds weird, but my dad failed his first CDL test when he was going through schneider. They took him onto the highway and when he turned onto the on ramp his trailer went over the curb, it was a tight one!! I just can't wait till I can rub it in his face that I passed the first time, hopefully!!
I really want to drive and also own some busineses, like some franchises and other stuff. The one thing that I am worried about is that i'll be in my twenties and that is usually when people are starting a family and I don't know how to drive and also have a social side.
My dad did a dedicated acount at
schneider where he was home every night, but I think that would be too boring. I'm looking for a trucking job where for example i'll be in North Carolina and I get dispatched to Colorado. But thats all for now, if any one can give me some advice please contact me!
