Truck Driver Want-to-Be's Beware!!

Truck Driver Want-to-Be's Beware!!

{sidebar id=3}Don't give up your job!

I saw an ad posted in the paper in the "help wnated" section from Werner Ent. looking for drivers.  DO NOT GET CAUGHT UP IN THIS!!!!  I gave up a good paying job to go train with these people, and was left in the cold.  I took the 8 week training course, passed the "test-out" process, and was hired, only to be sent home because there was "no truck or load assignment available".  They are only training people to get the money from the federal government. they recieve for training ($8500 to 10,000 per person).

BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING, CALL THE TRUCKING COMPANY YOU WANT TO WORK WITH, TELL THEM YOU ARE A LICENSED DRIVER ALREADY, AND ARE LOOKING FOR A JOB!!!  When they hear from what state you are, your response will be, "WE ARE NOT HIRING IN FLORIDA".  If you are one of those who gave up a job to train, YOU WILL BE OUT OF THE WORKFORCE WITH NOWHERE TO GO!!!
