Driving a day-cab semi-truck around town delivering deliveries (dry goods) to companies around town.

Eh, could be okay. Doesn't sound like there's much room for career progression though, so unless you're okay with doing this for the next 40 years, I wouldn't take it.

I haven't asked yet, have the interview soon and they are very interested in me, I used to drive semis but wanted to get out of it because I wanted more pay. I was planning on going to uni. for MIS (Management in Info. Systems)(Computer Science) but if they offer this to me, I am not sure what to do now, it would be the most I would be making in my life so far.

Go to the interview and decide whether or not to take it once they offer you the job.

Damn, decisions, decisions... fuck, bump to get another point of view on this... it's kinda nerve wracking honestly.

Take the job, study logistics and management-related things part-time, and look forward to promotion in this company or another.

Would there be an official degree on what that is called, like a Bachelor in Buisness Administration or something?
>>
>>18030308
>55k

Fuck yes it is (teachers who have bachelor degrees, credentials and a year of training dont even start that high)


I say do both, plus CDL jobs tend to have room for movement

>>18030308
it certainly doesnt suck.

>>18030308
CDL typically goes nowhere as >>18030336 stated. You'll be a driver. Your job will be driving. Sometimes you will drive big trucks, sometimes smaller ones. To make more money, you'll need to find a job that involves driving larger routes, like full coast or national deliveries.

The money is not as impressive as it sounds, I was making 52k at 23 after managing an auto shop for 3 years with a year of dropout college education, no degree, and no creds.

That's not to say don't take the job. If you can do the job and continue schooling, you'll do yourself a big favor because you'll have some consistent work background when you go to apply for something that is more career worthy. Having money is never a bad thing as long as you can balance. Just make sure you frame this job appropriately and don't be duped because this is the most you'll have ever made.

Thank you for the insight. I just had the interview, it was actually for Pepsi, it's Union and has a pension, I actually don't want to really drive, but I need the money, and as I stated earlier I was trying to get back into college to go for Computer Science so I can work from a desk. It's going to be a 10 to 14 hr. work day, 5 days a week based on commission of deliveries. He said there will definitely be room for advancement, especially in management, which he hinted pretty hard at. They seemed interested enough in me.

But, idk, if I was to take this job, I would do night classes at the Uni.

Only take the job if you want to be a truck driver the rest of your life. It can be a stressful job when deliveries have to be in on time. I used to be a cargo van driver in Chicago. On the one hand it was pretty easy, but the real stress was always finding a spot in cramped loading docks, getting in touch with customers to receive the deliveries, that kind of thing.

>>18031890
Honestly, I'd rather not drive anymore, there is a good deal of physical labor, and I've done manual labor for about 7 years now and I am fucking sick to my stomach of it, I just want an office job where I can work from a desk and a computer.

Although, like I said, it would be the most I ever made so far in my life, I need the money and I am worried another opportunity like this might not come my way.
