Long haul=towing a load for a very long distance. Think water-to-water. 2-4 weeks at a time on the road with little or no home time. Hard work, long hours, big bucks.
Thanks all for the job-hunt tips, I'll follow up on those. No, I don't have any experience yet. I'm looking at a regional company out of London, OH, here near Columbus. Possible I might work there until I get a year'* experience under my belt, then look for higher ground.
Thing is, no matter where I go, I'm still going to be looking at twice the money I've ever pulled down in a year before. I got into this because I was sick of being shat on by employers. My last boss was an unmitigated jack-***, and a flaming drunk to boot.
I figure it'* past time I moved into a more professional career.
Hopefully I'll find something quick so I can get out on the road. I've been living with my folks for over a year, trying to recover from a real financial Hindenburgh, and we're driving each other INSANE!
