When I hired on at age 19 I told them I wanted to be a Shuttle driver. Of course I understood I would have to wait until age 21 to even drive. Then after getting qualified to drive AE wouldn't allow me to run Shuttle because of no experience. So City was my only option. Ran it for 7 years, loved interacting with the customers but my family needed more money for the wife to be a stay at home. Just be super cautious and listen to the trainer even if you already know the lessons he is teaching.Well... things didn't go off completely without a hitch. I will have to train as a city driver for a few weeks before switching to shuttle. Not what I was hoping for but it'll be good for me in the long run and in all honesty, I could use it. If they had offered me this as the original plan I would have still jumped on it.
All in all, Orientation was something else. So well organized and professionally done. How they handled everything logistically with flights, lodging, transportation, the whole itinerary... It would be impressive for any company to put something like this together and have it go so smoothly, but for a trucking company? None of us could compare it to anything else we've seen in the industry.
What is Shuttle driving like at Averitt?
Give me a few more weeks than I thought and I'll let you know...
