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

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

Wow. I am reading some horror stories here that match mine with interviewers wasting people's time. I feel better now that I am not alone. I started to think it was me. After reading some of these comments it woke me up to realize that this is really happening out there. Unprofessional interviewers wasting people's time. I feel much better now. Hey next time you go out I might be your UBER DRIVER!! LOL

I had this recently as well . They aren’t making interviewers like they used to
