Enjoyed my job for 19 years.
Pros: i love to drive.
Cons: stress, fuel prices, keeping up with truck expenses and being away from family.
I have always loved Semi trucks. I attended Pro Driving School as soon as I turned 21. I Have driven truck ever since.
The last few years driving has been less rewarding because when I first started fuel was about .90 cents a gallon ,now it is over $4.00. My truck is getting old and the expenses and fuel result in less profit. I have two children 12 – more... and 8 yrs. old. I want to be home more for them.
I was able to get along well with other drivers,management and people where I delivered the products I was hauling.
I have learned that no matter what the job is some days are much better than others but that is just a fact of life.A person needs to accept that. – less
