1 | "Friendly and helpful people" Jan 2017

Brent B. - 45 years of experience behind the wheel

GOOD

Most people you deliver to are very friendly and willing to help you if needed. Traffic is not bad except during the summer.

BAD

Rough roads, bad weather is; snow, ice, etc.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Everyday is different and you learn something every day, even if you have been driving for years.

2 | "The state is beautiful" Dec 2016

Kurt F. - 15 years driving experience

GOOD

The state is beautiful, driving a truck enables you to see the beauty of this state.

BAD

The snow is difficult to drive in. It is important to keep a safe distance from other vehicles, especially for first time drivers.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Take your time, never be in a hurry. Always make complete stops at all stop signs.
