Get the Driver Manual
I get pictures of driver manuals sent to me all the time with varied rules and regulations in them that are never discussed by the recruiters. Also, some contain deductions which the company is not allowed to take. Because of this and all the lying the recruiters regularly do, I recommend that all drivers get the driver manual in advance of working at a company. If you are interested in going to a company you should completely read the driver manual before you go to orientation or agree to work there. If they won't show it to you that would lead me to believe that they have something to hide. There should be no reason they would not want you to see the rules and expectations they will have for you and from you when you work there. If you knew there was a $150 pay deduction every time you were late would you go work there? I wouldn't. You never know what you will find in that manual. Get it in advance and save yourself the trouble of having to find yet another job. This has now been added to my page with questions to ask a new company.
Do you carry a good knife with you? You should. It has many uses from defense to just cutting an errant line. Check out the knife I carry right HERE.
See you on the road!

Hi! Welcome. I'm Mark and I've been a professional truck driver for over 33 years, the last 19 years at the same company. It is time that drivers got paid for every minute that we work and we are treated like the licensed professionals we are.
