After getting my load assignment, I would fill out all paperwork required by D.O.T. regulations, including my pretrip inspection, and verifying load assignment via Qualcomm. I learned how to manage my time, to where I could arrive at my destination in adequate time to make my appointment times. My manager was there to support me, If I ran into issues enroute. The management would make ever effort to work with me if I was running out of time for the week, and would arrange for me to "recharge" my hours, so I could be as productive as possible. The hardest part of the job was the long driving hrs. and the considerable time away from home. I enjoyed being able to travel across the country, and being able to go to places that I would have otherwise not been able to visit.
Great co-workers, great pay, great benefits, great retirement plans
