Movin' on up!!!

SO, I got a promotion at work. although I just got the route I wanted doing what I'm doing now

For the last 10 months I have been driving a straight truck with my Class B. I have been itchin' to get on driving our semi's since I started. A tractor trailer position opened up in spring and unfortunately I only had 5 months in my current position, a company stipulation is you have to have 6 months in your position before you can get any kind of promotion. So I've been waiting and biding my time. Three weeks ago a posting came up for a tractor trailer position. I put in for it. I found out today that I got the spot!!!

I don't know any specifics yet, they told me they want me to get my Class A license by Oct. 1 and want me to be out driving on my own by mid-October. I'm pumped! They're gonna pay for driving school and they're gonna pay me while I'm in school. I can't wait to get started. I've been chomping at the bit to do this, and I am finally getting where I want to be. Very exciting news I found out today, I just wanted to share.

Yes indeed, thank you. I actually feel pretty fortunate to be where I'm at right now. The company I work for is awesome and takes such good care of their employees. And actually we're growing right now through all this crap. I'm just thankful for what I've got.

Doors open with your Class A and make sure you get HAZMAT endorsed and keep that record clean. You'll be a wanted man all over the place.
