Things to think about
Things to think about when starting a truck driving career. A lot of people have the misunderstanding that all you have to do as a truck drivers is drive WRONG. Truck driving is a job and truck drivers have a lot more to do then just drive. We will go over some of that here in just a little bit. On another note truck driving can be very rewarding if you plan for the long haul. Getting started can be a little trick. You most defiantly want to do you research on the company that you would like to drive for.
That is why we have a open book police here at Double “S” Transport we want our drivers to know what they are getting into from the start. We don’t want to hire someone on lies so that they turn around and quit in a few months. Ok lets go over some of the good things about truck driving. The open road is a good one even though it isn’t always open do to traffic LOL but, you are not stuck in a office all day looking at the same color walls and the boards hanging on the walls. Every day you get to see something different.
The money is another great thing about truck driving.
You can earn a very competitive wage working as a truck driver. There are trucking companies that pay as much as $85,000 per year and even better in some case. If you are just getting started again do your research before you jump into something. There are companies out there that will get you into a contact and then not deliver on what they promised. Do some research on us at Double “S” Transport, Our student drivers can make $40,000 to $70,000 in there first year depending on how hard they want to work. After your first year you can be making as much as $55,000 to $85,000 a year. Not bad for starting out.
Some of the things that are hard about being a truck driver
I would say one of the hardest things about being a truck driver is the being away from home. Depending on the company you choose the home time can very by a lot so make sure and ask about home time when looking into a trucking company. The other thing is that you are living in the truck and don’t have all the comforts of home. There are other things to but, all in all it isn’t a bad gig.
