favorite this post Class A CDL (need training) looking for small company work (Elizabethtown PA) hide this posting unhide

As the title says, when it comes to class A I have no experience. I am a 26 year old 2nd generation driver, grew up on the road with my dad and for the last year I have been driving Tri Axle dumptruck, previous work was driving 26' box truck to NY, DE, VA and MD. Before that was pickup trucks and gooseneck trailers hauling steel.

I got my class A back in 2017 and never really wanted to get into an actual job for it until I got comfortable in something smaller. Work for dump trucks is at a complete halt right now due to winter and I am not making any money.

I drive a mack 10 speed, a mack 15 speed and a Pete 388 with an 8 speed. I have 0 accidents and 0 violations of any kind on my license and I have never gotten any since I've had my license, 10 years in March. 3 years clean with a CDL, 7 with a class C.

I take my driving record and my safety VERY seriously, I am going home safe every night and I try my best to ensure you are also. I can pass a drug screen and random tests anytime, and I currently carry a 2 year medical card.

So the next big thing is this:
I can handle a tractor trailer fairly well, I'm just looking to get in with a small local company that will allow me the opportunity to get a foot in the door and train me... THE RIGHT WAY. If I do this, I dont want another rookie with 6 months on the road trying to train me *COUGH* c.r. england, swift, Schneider... that means don't bother.

One last thing... I am used to working between 10-17 hours a day. I am not a machine though... I take my sleep just as serious as my driving. Dont ask me to work 17 hours and then go sleep for 4 and hammer down again... I dont play that game. Did that kind of work before and realized falling asleep and laying it over wasn't worth it.

Thanks for looking.
