In this video I talk about truck driver trainers need to be honest. This is one of the most important thing you can do as a trainer. Check out the video for more.
Cassen Transport is a auto hauler that has terminals in Illinois, Michigan, Kansas, Maryland, Kentucky, New Jersey , New York, Ohio, Tennessee, and Canada. There a Teamster company that means you will have to work your way in to the company. There is a probation period, during this time you will not have Teamster benefits and you will be at the bottom for freight. That means you could be sent home if they don’t freight and you will not get paid. But you are paid a dollar a mile witch means two load can make you five or six hundred a week, is what a truck driver I talk to told me, he made this in his probation period.
He said that it just sounds bad until you realize that at a dollar a mile, it is easy to get to making five or six hundred with two load, He has meet guys at the company that make a hundred grad after 7 years with the company. If you want to be a car hauler, at any company think about the time of year. At the end of the year many companies slow down, because people are not buying and new models come out. So don’t even think about it until march at least. Its all long term at Cassen he said Yep!
If you want to go to Cassen getting in shape you need to think about this hard. Car haulers walk at least a mile for every car they haul sometimes and you will have to be able to climb out a car window. This can be hard for fat guys like me . You will need to able to drive stick. Have a good memory because new cars have customs items like satellite navigation discs and other things that have to be with the car. Seeing is probably the most important thing.
When you pull a car up on a rack you will have to be able to tell that the car is straight. If you go off one little bit the car could fall off the rack or just scratch three hundred dollar or more rims. The trailer on a truck that hauls car is heavy and low to the ground. Pull in the wrong truck stop and you could really destroy the cars and trailer.
I have seen guys hang there car hauler trailers up on small uneven concrete humps. One of the most important things for a car hauler is to keep the car perfect and clean. Clean means that many car hauler companies have there own uniforms and you will have to be clean at all times when driving the cars.
The Benefit of being a car hauler at Cassen can pay off big. You never sleep in the truck you will sleep in hotels. No docks to back up to. Some drivers I talk to have made a hundred or more a year. Keep in mind that many did more than seven years behind the wheel. You have to be willing to earn your pay at Cassen. Last he’s some tips for new guys, get in shape they say, the amount of new guys who can’t walk a mile is getting sad, Get your eyes checked out and have some savings, it will take time to get good at car hauling. I would like to say thank you to all the people who talk to me on the road.
