Hello drivers, I posted a few weeks ago. I graduated from CDL school a few weeks ago, have my hazmat, doubles/triples, and tank endorsements. OD is hiring in my area and I applied for the L/H opening. Already took drug and road test, had photo ID taken, just waiting on corporate sometime this week for approval. I've got a young family and we are very thankful for this opportunity right out of trucking school. My wife would've supported me going OTR, but she obviously wants me home more. I know she'd be disappointed if I went OTR when I could've done L/H. I'll be making $20.65 per hour during 4 week training, then moving to cpm for my L/H job. Am I crazy for still wondering about going OTR? I had my eye on Shaffer before this L/H opportunity came. I know I'll make more and be home more often w/ the L/H gig. I'm just wondering about the quality of home time since I'll be night shift and will have to keep to that schedule even during my days off. I know eventually I could get an opportunity to make a bid on a day L/H run, but I'm pretty sure those are limited and that might take awhile to get that kind of seniority. I have no interest in P&D. I want to drive. Shaffer does offer bi-weekly home time, so I wouldn't have to be out a month at a time. I'd get two days off for two weeks out, my own assigned truck, won't have to drive just nights - although I've been told there are a lot of night appointments for reefer. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about the L/H job and what comes with it, I'm just comparing the two. Everything tells me that the L/H gig would be the way to go, and that I shouldn't squander the opportunity. If I go OTR and later decide I want to try the L/H gig, it might not be available at that time. I think the reason the OTR still appeals in some way is because it's an experience I might never know about. I'm also curious how the 12-14 hour days w/ night shift will be. I willing to do whatever it takes to support my family, and I'm a hard worker and good provider, I just have my hesitations. Part of me wishes I could go OTR for my first year, and then look at L/H. I just don't know if that opportunity will still be there, especially w/ OD. Out of all the LTL companies I've looked at, OD is the most attractive for me. No dock work, just driving for the L/H gigs, pays well. It doesn't matter to me that it's not union. So, thoughts? Am I crazy for still wondering about OTR with a L/H gig that's probably going to be offered to me? You don't know what you don't know, and I'm not claiming to know anything. ;) Which is why I'm asking for input.
