    Thanks everyone, I love it but my trainer is starting to **** me off, so I don't know if I will make it for 2 more weeks without slapping the. U know what out of him, plus they are only paying $175 a week for the first 3 weeks and after taxes u get $140.00 a week.... sucks

    Srry my bad, they pay u $375 for 3 weeks and you have to pay $200 for training every week so that leaves u $175 and after taxes u get $140.

    Welcome!!! Good luck! There are a lot of trucking veterans on here that are willing to help and answer questions. Out of all the boards on the net, the people on here are the best.
