This in my opinion is a terrible career path to take. Recruiters will lie to you about everything to get you to sign on.
#1 You wont make near what they say you will.
#2 You will be treated like shit from your employer.
#3 You will be treated like shit from the people you deliver to.
#4 You will be treated like shit from other drivers on the road.
#5 This career is really detrimental to your health. (You are sitting behind a wheel not getting any physical activity for 8 plus hours at a time damn near every day.)
My advice, avoid this career at all cost.
I am employed by the largest Trucking Company in the United States and I hate every minute of every day, but hey at least I have a job in this shitty economy right? That is what I have to tell myself every day to get up and go to work.
