Chevron Aviation Fuel Card

I’ve been training for my petroleum tanker position since April 18th and I finally got my first fuel card for Chevron. ⛽️ 🪪

I can now load aviation fuel at a Chevron terminal in El Segundo, California. ✈️ I have around 9 more cards to get certified that include 76 terminals. This takes around 3 months to complete. ✅

I have to say from hauling out the Long Beach ports to hauling fuel they are two different worlds. Hauling fuel is a lot more challenging and physical than the ports, but I can truly say I’m enjoying it. I’ll be updating the trucking community as I continue my journey. I hope everyone is landing the job they desire!

Hauling Fuel

Here’s a picture of my semi-truck and double tankers. 🚛⛽️

I resigned from my union trucking position to haul fuel 2 week ago. I have to say we work a lot of hours that are generally 13-15 hours a day. Loading from the refineries and unloading at gas stations requires your full undivided attention.There is no room for mistakes. I’m still in training which will go on for 8 weeks. New trainees generally make around $130k-$140k annually, while veterans with at least 2 years at the company make $155k-$165k annually. 💰

I can honestly say I really enjoy hauling fuel because of the challenges and working for a great company that takes care of their employees. I’ll be sharing more updates on my new journey from time to time. 📝

Any questions about the hauling fuel feel free to drop a comment. ⤵️

INTRODUCTION: Hello workplace warriors! Welcome to another video. I’m on a mission to help you live your best career life, one video at a time. So, if you’re stopping by for the first time, I invite you to subscribe to my channel and hit the notification bell so that you’ll among the first to know when I drop new videos. Also, please make sure to like this video to let YouTube know that you’d like to get more awesome job search and workplace tips, information, and advice that you can use. Finally, be sure to share my videos with others who want to live their best career life.

Today, let’s dive into the world of career cautionary tales and explore the top ten reasons why employees find themselves unexpectedly off their employer’s payroll. From innocent blunders to epic mishaps, these are the stories you will definitely want to avoid. So, grab your coffee and let’s uncover why some folks end up saying, “I got fired for what?!”

TOP 10 TERMINATION TALES: Picture this: you’re happily working away, thinking you’ve got job security nailed down, when suddenly—bam!—you’re called into HR and handed the dreaded pink slip. What happened? How did it come to this? Well, fear not, because we’re about to unravel the mystery of employee termination with a blend of insight and light humor. So, without further ado, here are the top ten reasons employees get booted.

  1. Attendance Amnesia

This is the classic case of the disappearing act. From perpetual tardiness to mysterious absences, failing to show up reliably is a surefire way to land on your manager’s and HR’s radar. Remember, while you might have mastered the art of stealth mode, your boss will still notice when you’re only around “in spirit” for Monday morning meetings.

  1. Social Media Mayhem

In today’s digital age, what you post online can come back to haunt you faster than you can say, “Delete.” One too many questionable tweets or inappropriate Facebook rants can lead to a one-way ticket out the door. So, here’s some wise counsel – If you wouldn’t want your grandma to see it, don’t post it!

  1. Office Politics Gone Wrong

Navigating office politics is like tiptoeing through a minefield. While it’s tempting to engage in gossip or backstabbing, remember that walls have ears (and those ears might report what you said to your boss). Keep your alliances friendly and your conversations drama-free by avoiding the workplace grapevine communication channel.

  1. Quality Quagmire

Your work should speak for itself—but what if it’s saying the wrong things? Consistently sloppy output or failing to meet standards can turn your dream job into a nightmare. So, double-check your work, ask for feedback, support, and strive for excellence.

  1. Ethics and Integrity Slip-ups

Integrity isn’t just a buzzword—it’s the cornerstone of professionalism. Whether you’re fudging numbers, cutting corners, or engaging in shady practices, your ethical lapses can torpedo your career faster than you can plan a “cover-up.”

  1. Communication Catastrophes

Ever sent an email to the wrong recipient? Or accidentally hit “reply all” on a scathing critique? Yes, it has happened to me. Communication blunders can be cringe-worthy and, in some cases, career-altering. So, my advice to you is to always pause, proofread your message, read it out loud, then think twice before you hit send.

  1. Attitude Overhaul Needed

It’s true: attitude is everything. A consistently negative or toxic demeanor can poison team dynamics and put you on the fast track to unemployment. Stay positive, be a team player, and leave the grumpy cat impressions to the internet memes.

  1. Policy Perils

Remember that rules exist for a reason, and breaking company policies can lead to serious consequences. Violating confidentiality agreements, abusing company resources, or playing fast and loose with the rulebook rarely ends well.

  1. Culture Clashes

You know that every workplace has its vibe, and fitting into the company culture is key to employee success. If you’re the lone wolf in a sea of team players (or vice versa), clashes can arise. Embrace the company ethos, adapt where needed, and avoid becoming the odd one out.

  1. Downright Dismissal

You guessed it. The most straightforward path to unemployment is getting fired for simply not cutting it. Lacking skills, poor performance, or being a bad fit can hinder your ability to shine. So, whether you or your employer comes to the realization, sometimes the best career move is to get s fresh start in a new role.

IN CONCLUSION: As we wrap up our time analyzing terminated tales, remember that while these stories might make you chuckle a bit, they also offer valuable lessons. Success in the workplace isn’t just about skills—it’s about attitude, integrity, and adaptability. So, keep your head up, your coffee strong, and your sense of humor intact. Avoid these common pitfalls by learning from others’ mistakes. Stay focused on your journey to a thriving career.

And there you have it, folks—the top ten most common reasons employees get fired, served up with a side of humor and a dash of caution. Now go forth, work wisely, and may your next HR meeting be for a promotion, not a pink slip!

  2. Engage in physical activities like exercising. ✅

  3. Know your numbers like your blood pressure. ✅

  4. Know your health history. ✅

  5. Don’t drink or eat sugary foods before your physical. ✅

How to get a CDL

Here’s my monthly post on how to get a “Commercial Driver’s License”. 🪪 These are the exact steps I took to get my CDL. If you follow these instructions, you’ll avoid any delays and will be on the road to a 6 figure career. 💰

The first thing you need to do is study for the CDL. Download the DMV study guide from their website. I also recommend downloading the CDL prep app. It’s free and has the same questions as the DMV test. When you are ready to take the air brake and knowledge test, make a DMV appointment. Before your appointment you’ll need a DOT physical from an urgent care. Not all urgent cares offer DOT physicals, so call and find out which one does. They are generally $100 for a medical certificate. When your DMV appointment arrives, take your birth certificate, ID, medical certificate, and two utility bills that prove you live at your residence. ✅

After passing your test you’ll receive a Class A permit and you can either pay $3,000 to enroll in trucking school which is 27 courses 1 hour each course, or you can apply for a trucking company that will provide paid training. Takes around 2-4 months to get your CDL from start to finish depending on the pace you set for yourself. Any other questions feel free to ask. ✅

Average Day Delivering Fuel

Since I just recently landed a fuel delivery position, I thought I’d YouTube a bunch of videos of drivers delivering fuel. ⛽️

Educating myself before I start training will give me an advantage. I always do this before I start day 1 and I highly recommend anyone starting a new job to do this. You’ll impress your trainer and management on how easily you pick up on the job duties. 🚛

Any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to drop a comment. ⤵️

Superior Tank Lines

I’m excited to announce I just accepted a job offer with Superior Tank Lines which is the 2nd highest paying fuel carrier in the nation! 🚛⛽️

I took a road test on 3/27 and met all the requirements to haul fuel. This is a huge transition from working the Los Angeles Ports. 🚢

Superior Tank Lines pays $130k annually, pays 100% medical, PTO starts day 1, and EOS which out performs 401k. 💰

I’ve been wanting to haul fuel for this particular carrier for the past 2 years and I’m finally in. I’ll be resigning from my union carrier Maersk next week once they give me a start date. My favorite part is that my commute is only 30 minutes round trip. ✅

I’m excited to start my new journey. This is the 6th carrier I’ve worked for in the past 2 1/2 years. Having a Class A CDL has a career advantage because there are more jobs than there are drivers. As you can see job hopping isn’t a problem in the trucking industry. This will be the last carrier I work for until I go full-time Real Estate Investing. Don’t stop pursuing your goals and keep grinding it out until you reach financial freedom! 💯

Keep on trucking! 🚛⛽️
