No. 0     Original Topic:  Lady trucker needs a job   
By:  Serafina   Gender: F   Age: 62   on  Jul 5, 2017 at 9:09 PM   Viewed 2258 times     
I just finished Trucking school at 64 yrs old.
My biggest challenge now is to find a company that does not require agility tests designed for 30 year old males to qualify, AND ALSO A COMPANY WILLING TO ORIENT ME IN AN AUTOMATIC

Welcome to MC! I am glad you have joined us in forums and hope you will be blessed.

As for your post: How admirable! Are you 62 or 64? My Mother was a class A driver, but took a job as a bus driver (a class B is only required, but she had endorsements and preferred this over that of semis due to the long runs). Getting lost when carrying a load and being on a time table is more stressful than a lot of people realize! I also have an Uncle who drives (class A) and has been doing so for over 20 years (he enjoys it greatly as he has time off and does well).

I will pray the Lord directs you to the perfect job and removes all obstacles in the pursuit of your new career! :thumb_up::pray: (again welcome to forums)!

Ah! thanks for the encouragement I am actually 64- I'll fix that! Typo!

Funny thing I was feeling to look into getting the passenger endorsment just today!

I know God is so good! He will supply- it's just that -- well you know!

I will pray for you too, to get that job, the right one just for you. My ex husband was a truck driver. He loved it. Now deceased. I feel a special kinship with truck drivers. I will post my own thread about the job thing.

His first job was for Celadon, in Indianapolis. Automatics, mostly back and forth to Laredo TX. I always think of him when I see those trucks.

I just decided to add mine to yours. Hope that's ok with you. I am looking for a job too...and I'm 61. Just passed another test June, 23rd in the process of getting certified as a teacher in TX. PreK through 6th grade. Now It will require that I get a job and teach as an intern for a year. I don't know why I want to do this. I have plenty to do here around my farm. I just do. My problem is no experience except that I home-schooled my children. My prayer is that God be lifted up in may life and this endeavor also.

Sarafina,

Automatics are slowly replacing manuals as the preferred choice, it's because an automatic will always produce better fuel mileage and for training, it's preferred because the shifting is hard for some people to get down.

Insular -- Does automatic rigs get better gas mileage than standards? (not sure about that one)... :-p


Serafina -- I hope you keep us posted! Still lifting you in prayers!
