RE:How is USA trucking Orientation
Posted: Thu Apr 2, 2009 2:29:58 PM

Hope you know how to plan your trips.  USA has a habit of making promises and not living upto them.  I went to school trhough USA went out on road with trainer.  Was told they would work with me the whole step of the way in getting where I needed to be in order to get my own truck.  I passed the school with a 97% and only got one point against me on my driving test with the state.  When I was out with my trainer the only problem I had was alley docking, but was never given the opportunity to do it due to hot/critical loads.  When I came off road was told no big deal we will work with you to fine tune this problem - NOT.   I passed my driving part, but failed the backing and was given a bus ticket home the same day.  Of course they still want me to pay for all this - NOT!!!!!

CRE  is going to teams from what I hear or you can be suckered into lease which is a bad ideal unless you have been on your own or know how to run a business, even with that I'd think more then twice before I'd sign on the dotted line, as it is not all its made out to be.    Good luck Home | Message Boards | Privacy Policy | Disclaimer
