He forced me to back up!!

First day of class was this past Saturday. We got thrown in the fire without any knowledge of how to back. The instructor showed us once and that was it. Then he expects us all to do it perfectly. I hit like 10 cones and felt like an ass, but a buddy of mine actually backed the truck straight into a ditch. Why they even had the truck anywhere near a ditch I have no clue. The instructor turned red and I really thought he was going to kill…

If you need backing skills I can teach you. Schools dont teach them because they dont know them.

Did you do your Homework?

Everyone one of us wants/needs to stand out when we get a coveted in-person interview.

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…

He went through my personal belongings!!

Last week after passing the scale I was pulled over for a DOT inspection. Figured it was routine when the officer asked if could see the inside of my truck. I got nothing to hide so I said sure. I was not carrying anything I shouldn't, but all of a sudden he starts rifling through my stuff and finds a large plastic cooking knife that was next to a spatula and some seasonings under my seat. I have a microwave in the back and sometimes I cook stuff…

It’s absolutely legal to carry a knife with you ! I drive truck for 23 years and is legal!

He pulls me over and then THIS happened!

I was doing a long haul a couple days ago and had my dog Purdy with me. I love my little girl!! Not even 10 miles out DOT pulls me over. They tell me she can’t have her head out the window and that he is going to write me a ticket!!! I start to freak out, but as he is about to write the ticket Purdy starts to cry and puts her paw up in the air and kind of waves at him like she is saying hi over and over. He asks me if I taught her that. I said I…

I've never had a problem. He sits in front most of the day. Likes to stick his head out when we slow down and sniff out a town…

He flipped out on me

My truck broke down last week and the supervisor shows up and tells me it’s MY fault because I did not do a good enough pre-trip. What happened was my other idiot supervisor strapped down a tire onto the catwalk and the strap broke, wrapped around my driveline and then tore up all my airlines. I told her it wasn’t me that did that. She then FLIPS out on me gets in my face and says that she doesn't need my attitude WHAT?!!!. The whole time I tried…

Possibly. Your word against hers unless you have a witness to say you didnt scream at her

Help! They fired me.

Last week I was doing a haul and the dispatcher told me I had to make it by 6 that night. It was my own STUPID fault but I drove faster than I ever do. I just really wanted to shut him the hell up and make it there. Well it rained hard earlier that day and I hit a big puddle. The truck skid and I flipped it onto its side. I called it in right away and then yesterday my boss told me I am fired. I couldn’t believe it!!!!! Anyone else ever get into…

What matters you are alive , not injured. It's a lesson learned, now look forward to better opportunity. Wishing you the…

Valid driver license needed?!

Why is it that most of the jobs want you to have a valid driver's license but alot of them you won't be driving their company cars??? Is this NOT discrimination? Don't we have enough that eliminates us from certain job positions like education level and back ground checks? Whether or not someone has a valid driver's license isn't important for all jobs. Give me a BREAK....

I meant to add to my previous answer, that they can not require a driver's license for a non-driving job. They must require a…

Dispatcher is making it IMPOSSIBLE for me!!

So my new dispatcher is a real pain in my ass. Last week I get my load assignment but the delivery time was nearly impossible to make. I would literally need perfect weather and road conditions to be able to make the deadline not to mention drive non-stop without at least one fuel stop and a bathroom break. It just wasn't possible and I ended up looking like the jerk who couldn’t handle things. This isn’t the first time this has happened. What do…

Bus times & age

I live in the burbs of Chicago and am seeking employment. Here's the issue, I don't have a car and everything that would be a good for for me is too far away by bus. One position I know I would have been perfect for is 32 minutes away by car, BUT 6 1/2 hours away by bus/train/bus and walking, another position would have me leaving my house at 8:45pm to get there by 7:15am, I mean what the hell, when would I sleep, or even eat!! Please don't…

What should I do???

So DOT pulls me over and the guy has a real attitude. He asks me if I know why he pulled me over. I honestly didn’t. I told him I had no clue. He says I must be stupid because I was speeding. I tell him that can’t be right. I knew I wasn’t speeding. Of course no point in arguing with him, but I swear I wasn’t speeding! Now this is likely going to cost me my job because no one is going to want to hire someone who has a ticket on their record. What…

Nor will it go on your record
