Day in the life of
CDL Driver – Anthony Eck
I’m a Team Driver.
My Typical Day
Work is like being paid to travel the country. My key responsibilities are making sure my equipment is in safe working order before and after driving, get the customers freight picked up and delivered on time and in a safe manner, communicating with the customer or dispatch if there are any delays, being aware of your surroundings.
Great pay, you get to see the country, knowing that you keep America moving,
You are away from home a lot and from that you miss out on a lot of family gatherings, and holidays, long hours of driving, never having a decent sleep schedule, you’re not paid by the hour if you are over the road driver.
drive a tractor-trailer combination or a truck with a capacity of at least 26,001 pounds Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW). May be required to unload truck. Requires commercial drivers' license. Includes tow truck drivers.
