I got my Class A back in Nov 2007, when I was 24. Right after that I signed up with Werner as a training company(right there was a bad move, I know). I went to Dallas to get hooked up with a trainer. Unfortunately, luck was not on my side, as my trainer was a Hurricane Katrina survivor, if you know what I mean. And I'm not too keen on those types...you know? He was actually from Louisiana too. He smelled. Ate with his mouth open, and when he was in the back of the truck, he occasionally came to the front while I was driving in his fucking skivvies. Also, Werner was paying me $200/wk take home pay. At that time, I had a $400/mo truck payment with a $200/mo insurance payment. I also had a $75/mo phone bill...so I really couldn't live out there on $125/mo. So, nevertheless, I had a sour spot for OTR trucking. I quit the company, got dropped off in Houston and took a flight home to Tampa. Anywho...I'm now unemployed thanks to the economy, and have been collecting benefits for the past 7 months. I'm 27 now, and I want to get out of Florida and see the country. I've got no family aside from my parents and brother. I'd like to be able to stop paying rent, electric, etc and save that cash. I've got no truck anymore, just a motorcycle that I own. No real bills aside from my phone. And I think just my maturity level is there that I'm ready to move on, you know? Anyways, truckers. I need to find a good training company. Someone who will let me get the necessary experience behind the wheel. I've only been with Werner, and hated them. So, I'm looking for suggestions.
