Q. I wanted to ask if you don’t have your CDL can Con-way help you get them to become a driver?
Con-way Truckload: Thank you for asking! We certainly help people obtain their CDL with free training! That’s right, we cover the cost of housing, meals AND tuition in exchange for a 12 month over the road contract to drive with Con-way Truckload! Give us a call at 866-265-2617
Q. What is your pay per mile starting off? I’ve been offered .35 cents per mile and was just wondering about what Conway pays.
Con-way Truckload: Struggling to find a healthy balance while on the road? Christine understands the challenge of staying healthy while driving and as a personal success used diet and exercise to lose 60 pounds.

Con-way Truckload: When on the road, Christine’s favorite place was the Tiger Truck Stop of Louisiana. Great Cajun food and fresh homemade pies. What do you like to eat on the road?
A. Honey Creek Restaurant in Waverly Nebraska
A. Little taco stand in Vo Ormy Texas.
A. I used to stop at that truck stop. Food was great, restrooms were awful, but watching the live tiger get fed made up for the restrooms, lol. Just thoughts from a retired Con-way driver
