Pros: seeing a lot of the us i had never been to.
Cons: no social life, very little time with family and friends
I have driven for Hendrickson Trucking for just over a year, first as a lease operator and now a company driver. My typical day could start with going and picking up various loads, delivering a load, or driving towards the a destination or pick up. I can drive for up to eleven hours before having to take a break for 10 hrs.
The hardest part of the job is not having any kind of social life, time with family, friends and being gone for three weeks to six weeks at a time then only home for a few days.
The only thing I really enjoyed about the job was seeing parts of the country I haven't seen before.
