I would like to become a trucker. I don't currently have the money to go to school so I need one of those companies that hires you and then trains you. I used to be a lot more particular about the idea, but I'm quite ready for a change from my current job. Thanks. I am about 50 miles southeast of Sacramento.

Broward Community College USED to offer the CDL school when I lived there. Not sure if it's still available or not.

Now I will say this "Graduated" Class A CDL..

But finding that 1st Job "No Experience" was a "B-Word"..

Ended up at a Lumber Yard in Menominee Falls driving a Boom truck and stacking bundles of shingles on roof tops...

I'm crossed that alreast if with a "Carrier" program ya gotta give em a year .

But after that contract ya already know what 2 do get a job most places that's "provided" ya kept a "Clean MVR" no tickets or wrecks..

Basically "Carrier Program" it comes with Guaranteed Job..

Also believe it or not there's guys who started with places like Swift or Werner Enterprises been there 25 years only trucking job they ever had..

So for all the "B/S" Talking obviously some guys like the "Corporate" Carrier feel they make a "Good $$$" and just Stayed
