Saw this post on Facebook or somewhere and saved it because it's SO true and sharing it with this group.

1- Cover your ass. Take pictures, get it in writing, scale everything, get a dashcam and run it all the time.

2- NEVER trust a dispatcher.

3- Never enter any place you don't know how to get out of. Throw the brake, set the 4 ways and walk yourself in. always make sure you can get out.

4-. Don't screw over the next guy. Leave the truck... see more

When you’re out there in today’s market trying to find employment you’re oblivious to others looking right along side of you. It can be intense, frustrating and depressing. Especially when you have a family to care for and bills to pay.

I find stepping back, re-evaluating your skill set and making changes to your key words helps. I recently found an old resume from 14 years ago that showcased skills I hadn’t used in some time and I do plan on... see more

So last week I had to change sleep schedules a few times because of the timing of the loads. I ended up having a 10hr break and was able to grab a full nights sleep but then a half hour into my drive I was told to take another 10hr break. Of course I couldn’t sleep again so soon so when that ended and my dispatcher sent me out with a new load I was dead tired a few hours into the route. I pulled into the next stop and called in to let them know I... see more

I really don’t understand I am not able to obtain employment when I have over 15 years experience in the IT field. It seems like they are looking for something lower than my skills or hire than my skills. Sometimes I feel like it’s beca I’m African American, the employers supposedly love my resume but won’t hire me. I’ve lost my apartment I was just laid off Deloitte because I worked with 2 Douche bag no at all techie dudes that think there... see more

Moving is hard but when you have put in over 200 applications and applied with a lot of temp agencies and still can’t get placed something is wrong. I am not knocking the people that have degrees but my work and references speak for themselves. But I just can not seem to find a job no a career. This is crazy. If I was still in NJ I would have been placed by now if I didn’t have a job. Not out here in Atlanta tho. This is sooooo frustrating.

Ask any of friends, then, listen carefully. Ask them: What do you want in life? They will usually begin by saying..."well, you know, I'm just trying to get something going, maybe part-time or full-time and....
