Hubby Landed a Job!!
October 26, 2020 8:02am CST
My husband recently got his CDL and began searching for a job. He was turned away from all he had applied for because he lacked driving experience. Recently he applied for a job with an employer from out of Connecticut. They will train inexperienced drivers and get them on the road. He starts sometime next week. This job will keep him away from home for 3+ days a week. He expressed the need to be close to home in case of emergencies. The recruiter said he fully understood and the company does keep the drivers close to home. Neither of us like the fact that he will be away from home for a long time. Even a few days away will take some getting use to. Little Miss got a little weep yesterday when my husband explained that his job would keep him away. We told her that he would be doing video chats with us so she can see him. The money is really good, so are the benefits. Can't complain about that. The away time will take time to adjust to. But, at least he will be working. Always be thankful for the little things in life.

The recruiter said that many of their drivers often go onto jobs that are closer to home. But, he also stated that the pay and benefits are really good. This will help us with saving for the home that we hope to get next year.
@ElusiveButterfly she has to understand that $ don't grow on trees & I don't know how old she is but it's up to the parents to help the kids to understand what is going on from age 5 & up & not baby them, this is why kids have a hard time adjusting to things & don't get nowhere in life.

They are hoping he will stay with the company. However, he does want to be home with us. Once he has acquired some driving experience he will be able to apply to local companies and hopefully get a job that brings him home most every night.
