Dispatcher wanted me to drive when I was tired

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…

Homework: Use Google to do some basic research. What exactly does the company do, what is there product? Where are they Headquartered at? How many employees? How many different locations do they have? And often you can find out has any of their jobs already been outsourced out of the country, or even to other companies. What are their short and long…

THE 10 commandments of trucking

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…

DESPERATE

I'm down to my last 10 dollars. Got laid off in May. Unemployment hasn't compensated me. No one will hire me because of my age. Can't fully retire for another year. I have to move out of where I am by October. I just keep praying for a miracle. I'm determined to believe that God is going to make this situation better.
Does anyone know of any jobs where I don't have to be on my feet all day? I've been an administrative assistant my whole life…

I hope you found a job by now. But, if you haven't, try this: www.inolachamber.com. Also, look at this: https://tulsa.craigslist.o

Scarred and Scared

After 20+ years of service my job was outsourced a few months ago. I'm in my early 50s and new to how job searches are conducted.

I had an informal interview with a great company, but no second interview or follow up email on the position. I did follow up with a thank you email, again no response. I found out the position was filled via a LinkedIn connection so, I moved on.

My next interview was rescheduled minutes before I was headed out the…
