Honestly if u have any kids or other family you can kiss those relationships goodbye. The 60k a year is ok. But to make any more u gotta be gone for longer periods of time. I did OTR for a year and it destroyed my family. Finally got a job driving for USFoods and now I make 60 a year and I'm home every night and only work 4 days a week. Maybe make that your end goal ?
Yeah buddy that is my goal I would love to find a driving job where I am home every night.
I just need the experience first. There is a local trucking company I just called the other day and they want 1 year minimum experience.
I actually thought about going to a community college to get my cdl but it would almost be a waste of my money because seems like no company's that run local will hire without a years experience.

yep but have to get that experience first. us food probably requires 1-2 years experience dont they?
and that was my goal get the experience and then get a job around home instead. i enjoy trucking but im not going to be gone for a month or so at a time
Yeah I definitely don't want to be gone that long either. I do have a family here at home wife and little girl. But at the same time I'm trying to better them but don't want to be gone that long incasd something does happen and they need me.
That's why maverick honestly didn't sound so bad starting out they pay for my cdl training under contract. Then I'll be home * pretty much every weekend *
