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…

Question what if the dispatcher is your wife

Two truckers share their stories

Meet Nailah and Martin!

Two different people who truly love what they do, which is driving a truck.

Sometimes in life, you need to think outside of the box.

When a friend suggested that Nailah attend truck driving school she stood in front of her in high heels and a dress and thought NO way was this for her. Today she happily says, “I am in a place where I don’t have to want for anything. I am happy. I don’t have bill collectors calling me…

Yes..this is true...but you can not share your good things to haters! It can be a family member...

We aren’t making enough to get by with the job I have now and I think we will lose our home in the next 4 months if I don’t act fast. I know it sounds nuts, but what about truck driving?

AGE DISCRIMINATION

I have face age discrimination for the past few years. It is not fair that you should be shut out of the job market just because you have reached a certain age. Something needs to be done about this. Since I can no longer find a well paying job, I am basically homeless, living with friends who are tired of me being in their home, but I can NOT afford a place of my own. This HAS GOT to stop.

can't you go to you city or town for help? They usually give you money for a certain amount of time till you get on your feet,

YOUR LIFE IS ABOUT TO CHANGE! (Each step....) [IBYC]

READ FULLY WITHOUT PROCRASTINATION!

The world will NOT tell you that you have the mark of GREATNESS in YOU!

And as long as you believe that, you won't ever try to climb your mountains in life, therefore, you won't realize what's at the mountain top waiting for you.

Circumstances, experiences, trials, tribulations, struggles plus more are all the small hills that you MUST challenge to be prepared to climb your real mountain for greater success!

I think number one is the toughest for most people who feel they have made mistakes in their lives. It IS possible to move forward…

My advice to people interested in working at #7-11and76gasstatio as a #AccountManager ...

If you care about your community and loving to work at fast pace job and working with people, step in and you will love it otherwise there might be other jobs that might suite you.
At this job I feel like a teacher seeing his/her students become engineers, attorney and doctors.
I hired many high school students coached them guide them at work and seeing them become successful in their field, that's my rewards.

The biggest mistake I made as a #AccountManager at #7-11and76gasstatio ...

When we had the storm alert week prior to the storms. I triple our inventory perhaps we could have more sale.
Also knowing the gas delivery bucket will freeze under subzero temperature. Should have keep it warm by coving it with rubber flooring mat.

A #stressful #7-11and76gasstatio day

When inside the store power goes out and gas station is not accepting credit cards outside.

What made me stay at #7-11 was

I was offered the graveyard shift. It offered a higher pay rate. The other ironic benefit turned out to be the hours of the shift which were 11 - 7. At the time, I was in the midst of a serious bout of insomnia so the hours worked out for me.
