Truck Stop ettiquite

I am a manager of a medium size truck stop with 300 parking spaces. I have a problem (constant) with drivers who pull onto the fuel island and do their 30 minute break without fueling. We have 9 fuel bays and I find myself constantly having to go out to move trucks off the fuel bays. It is amazing to me how many drivers wish to argue and fight with me rather than be a professional driver and park in our parking lot. We are never full so parking…

Possibly you can post a sign that any driver caught parking at the fuel pumps will not be allowed on property in the future! See…

I thought my fellow Jobcasers would be encouraged reading this story:

A few weeks ago, I received an email as I was found through an online search to see if I would be interested in a newly created position. I did a quick check of the organization, was impressed and replied back.

In turn, I received a reply, had a phone screen, was asked to go in for a first interview, a second interview and then a third interview. I met with 8 people total. A…

My advice to people interested in working at #PlanetRecycling as a #TruckDriver ...

It's a great place to work at, but the only thing it's a small company. It's a carpet recycling place , the warehouse guys work really hard.

The biggest mistake I made as a #TruckDriver at #PlanetRecycling ...

New driver

I recently graduated driving school and started training with my company. I understand the need for experience, before getting a local route, but it sucks. I'm a very family oriented man and not sure about dealing with being away. Even with phone calls and video chats.

Best chance for local CDL A is look for dump trailer positions in your case anyway.
