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?

If you want a balanced life I think you have to get home most nights and eat dinner with your family or at least get home. That’s what a 9-5 job provides. There are some truck driving jobs that allow that, but most of us over the road haulers do not have a balanced life in my opinion. Of course everyone has an idea of what they want their life to be like. To me, a good day on the job is lots of miles, drop and hooks, and being able to get to the truck stop early to find a spot and have a nice clean hot shower followed by a good meal. What makes it a really great day is if I am going to make it home that night after being away 12 to 19 days on the road.
My world has grown dark. At this moment, I am dying a very slow and painful death. I am homeless. I am now unemployed after my car was repossessed on Monday, June 12. I am an Uber and Lyft driver. I have been praying nonstop for which my cries, pleas, and begging for mercy have fallen on deaf ears. I have cried for the past 6 days. I have been calling on GOD but HE doesn't answer. Friends, family, associates, and the like have all turned their back on me. Me and my dog are in need of medical attention. We are hungry. I have been trying in vain to recover my car. Without it, I will not be able to work. I have suffered a significant loss of income for which the finance company and anyone else cares about. Although I still retain shelter for one more day, on Monday, June 19, I will become a resident of the 'street'. My Bishop is fully aware of my dire circumstances. He promised me that he would put me with people to implement a plan to eradicate my dire circumstances. 'You don't deserve this. You deserve better.' That was 3 days ago. As of this moment, I have heard nothing back from him. His message at Bible Study was God's Covenant. Essentially, I am bankrupt. I have lost everything. GOD has abandoned (us). He has not fulfilled HIS promises. HE said HE would supply all my needs according to HIS riches in GLORY. But here (we) are suffering. The pain is unbearable. The end is near...
I work for Delta as a flight attendant and everyone thinks of us as a waitress or waiter, but guess what we aren't! Our first priority is to keep you safe. We actually take classes and learning self-defense, how to take care of violent passengers (should it happen), how to handle an emergency, and even how to do CPR. I sometimes think being a flight attendant is harder than being a police officer. At the end of the day Delta or ANY airline has to hire people who can handle it. NOT everyone can.
I work for Delta as a male flight attendant. I get snickers from people I don't know sometimes when I tell them what I do. Really? Who cares about gender?! I am good at what I do. I get free travel and you don't. I meet awesome people and you don't. I get to move around and have amazing co-workers. So the jokes on them!
