Trucking is not a job it’s a lifestyle am I right? Sounds stupid but it’s true. You work long ass hours, see some of the most beautiful sights in the world and some of the worst. You eat bad food on the road but meet good people. To me the road is home, always has been. You shouldn’t truck if you just need a job, because you’re setting yourself up to fail. You truck because you’re ready for a challenge and you want to make a change in your life. Anyone with me on this? Looking forward to meeting some other truckers on here.
What do employers consider to be reliable transportation? I see this question frequently asked on applications but I don’t know if managers want to know if I own a car or if I can get to the job on time. I don’t have a car right now but the bus system around my house and in the city gets me pretty much wherever I need to go. Would it be misleading on an application if I answer Yes or disqualify me from a job #interview if I tell them I don’t own my own car?
I've been to quite a few interviews the past month and the golden question always comes up, do you have a reliable transportation. I always say yes. The interviewer sees me walk away. I don't drive because i don't have a car. In my head I'm thinking I have 4 ways to get to work: bus, uber/lyft/friends/family. The hiring managers seem to think having a car is the ONLY way to be reliable. I want to buy a car of course but I need an income. I can't get the income until I have a job. I don't have a job because I don't have a car... what a vicious cycle #transportation
OK, I have been in HR for many years now and just learned something new. Now, whether it's legal or not, I need to do my research. My guess is that it's not illegal but very unprofessional and if you are going to do this to someone just don't. Double check your facts and just don't even get into it. Don't call the potential candidate if this is your "thing". OK, so you are probably wondering"What is this thing?" Simply put, a company that I spoke with puts a milage limit on how far away from the office you can live so they may foster a better work/life balance. There are so many things wrong with this. First, if you live more than 20 miles from the office is it really going to make a huge impact? Where I live everywhere is a commute. I don't mind. Second, shouldn't that decision be left to the candidate! I mean, what if they can ride the train in or something similar? Third, it's downright unprofessional in my opinion. Who are you to tell me that I won't be productive because I live five miles further down the road. Seriously, I could go on. I am going to research this. Thoughts?
Hi everyone! My names Aleksa: I'm looking for a great family to help out with childcare if anyone is looking. I'm looking for about 18-20hrs a week and a continuous position (fall- summer) if that fits to any of your schedules. I have my own car so transportation is not a problem. I have years of experience and references. Feel free to reach out if you are interested! Thanks a lot! Aleksa
I always try to do a good job, but it kinda bugs me when someone doesn't rate me. I want to know I did a good job or if they weren't happy for some reason so I can fix it. Anyone here get rated a lot or anyone who uses Lyft do you usually rate/review your driver? Thanks!

I currently work in Dallas, sleep in my car 5 days a week. I go home every Friday at 4:00pm. I live in Galveston county. I need a job that is closer to my house. Right now I would be willing to take a pay cut just to be able to be home every night. Is there anything available that somebody can help me with?
