Truck Driving Jobs- Empty Promises


Best Truck Driving Jobs- State by Stateby Allen Smith

The website for “The Best Truck Driving Jobs- A State by State Guide” is live.  The book is quickly becoming a favorite and I hope it helps all those in trucking make the all important decision of “which trucking company should I drive for?”

I recently wrote a Hub on Hubpages which gives a little history on this most recent book. The name of the Hub is Truck Driving Jobs and Empty Promises.  It describes a couple of the most common scenarios that CDL truck drivers face while driving  over the road for a typical trucking company. After you read them you’ll realize why there is a 128% driver turnover rate among the trucking industry.

I hope this book answers so many of the e-mails I receive asking me what is the best truck driving company for a particular state. I hope to continue my research for this book, and as always, whenever an update is made I will pass the newly added info on to my trucking audience and followers.

    I have had a good week. GTook some coffee from grn mtn coffee to fl, then x-mass trees from nc to ct. Then some paper containers from ct to ben and jerry in vt, then picked up more coffee in vt. Fri will be headed to tx.. I must say I am new and realy can’t say employer & dispatchers are good till maybe about 3 mos down the road. We have plenty of work, I already know I like the long haul. There are pros & cons, but right now I like ” getting out of town “. What I have learnede from your site has been useful and accurate.

    Happy canper……………..

    Hey Harry,

    You sound like what I hope to hear myself say in a few months. I’m glad to hear someone say “…I like the long haul.” I have had several careers and there is always pros and cons to everything! I’m also looking forward to hearing myself say I’m enjoying ‘getting out of town’…it makes you appreciate coming back in a whole lot more :> I hope you continue to get lots of good loads and work.

    Best wishes, DC
