IamA Truck Driver Trainer for a major $2 billion Corporation, one of the top 10 most lethal jobs in the country, and the most common way to be killed at work. Ask me about anything! Money, Sex, Drug testing, Hotdogs, you name it. AMA!
Ive spent the last two years as a truck driver instructor for one of the largest trucking companies in America. I am rated for Hazmat, Tanker, Doubles, Triples, in addition to having hauled flatbed and oversized loads. Currently assigned to support a major sporting goods store, I have spent a winter hauling oversized loads in the Rockie Mountains, A summer hauling cross border reefer loads, and have successfully trained more than 20 new drivers. I have trained people from all walks of life, from a former Police officer and Bail Bondsman, to someone convicted of attempted murder of his own stepson. Christians, Muslims, Atheists, and from three different continents.
Truck driving has always been a top 10 most deadly job, and kills more Americans than any one single profession. We have roughly a 100% annual industry turnover rate, and there are currently an estimated 25,000 job openings for new truck drivers. The pay for experienced drivers and trainers easily exceeds the income of the average American household, but there is still a huge demand for people who can adapt to the changes in every day life. The industry is always looking for good people willing to give it a chance! Truck drivers come from every background, from US Navy Nuclear technicians to Farmers from Somalia. Ask me anything you feel like!
