What's the hardest part in full-time driving during your 30 days?
first 10 minutes of every day, love the rest of my days
Delivering when its 35-40 below zero-----Oh wait-- you said 30 days not years. Sorry -- carry on.
sorry i thought it was years also, 30 days, i would say not to panic when things go wrong, you will still get it done just stay focused use cell to get help from other drivers if needed
Day 30. I've seen a few drivers not make it on days 28, 29 and 30. Almost like you get so excited about almost being there and forget your wits and the simplest little thing bites you in the butt. Always been on your "A game"
Actually stop and breathe, you will lose 5 minutes, you will gain 30. No wrecks, stay focused, be safe. Get a coffee or a pop. Eat something, 5 hr energy is good too. it is totally b12, which you will need, male or female. Go home have no life and sleep, you are qualifying for a 70k plus dollar an hour job. Eveything else is put on hold. If you have a family they need to understand that too. Its a joint venture. Momma has to pick up the slack, and if she wont you will never survive this job. You ae committing to give your family a healthy lifestyle, they also have to step up and contribute. Daddy goes to work and thats it for a while. Its much easier if you are single, you can go home have a beer, or watch some tv and fall asleep. Therma care for back and knees,
30 yrs?????? grease your walker, pray to the Lord.
What happens to an inside employee if they don't make it through the 30 days? Do they just go back to being a PT? Are they automatically placed at the bottom of the FT bid list again?
Work safely, take your FULL hour of lunch, follow the methods because they will help you be efficient. Again, work safely. Good luck.
Like said above, take it one stop at a time and do not freak out. Once you feel you are going over the deep end stop the truck. Sort your next few stops and take a few mins to relax.
After your thirty days it gets 150% worse.
I think looking at that brick loaded truck and wondering where to start is the hardest part. It tends to cause panic. Like everyone said, 'Breathe' and 'one stop at a time'. If you feel the panic setting in, take a break. It will help to clear your head and not think for a few minutes.
WOW!! I retired too soon.....
Where Tooner works, that's probably her hazardous duty pay.
getting used to being abused and beaten down like a pack mule !!
after the first 15 years your best friends will be Advil & Ben Gay!!!
Wow!... $70,000/hr sounds like a nice wage.
that would gross you about $560,000 a DAY, or $145 million a YEAR.
I would say thats worth sacrificing some sleep and family time!
And you thought megatron backed up the brinks truck
