Hi all, I'd like to say hi and apologize up front if my questions have been answered in previous threads. I've searched a bit, but not as thorough as I'd like to, as I'm at work and have little time to do so. I'm currently working behind a desk and cannot stand it any longer. Just over a year ago I changed careers from a construction foreman to what I'm doing now. I thought it was a good move for my future and now I'm regretting it on a daily basis. I'm not looking to go back to construction as I do not want to become my father (finishing concrete at age 60). I'm currently looking to change careers again and I'm interested in being a driver. The job simply appeals to me, from the physical aspect to being mobile and on my own, for the most part. The pay, from what I've read, is similar to what I make now. My question is, what is the quickest way into a driver spot? Should I dive into a part time package handler and eventually toss my number in for a position? Or do I have the same chance if I simply apply off the street? I have plenty of experience driving large trucks, UD's, pulling trailers and even big rigs (water truck). Unfortunately, I left construction just before I received my CDL. Do you think it would be worth it or up my chances if I get my CDL on my own before I apply? I'm not naive and know that I will most likely have to work my way into that position, but I thought I'd simply ask a few questions. Thanks for you time and I appreciate any feedback.
