    well you would think after 28 years of driving. he would know that trucking companies are going to get you for a little money. the lies are apart of it the game. it sounds more like the op is disappointed at how their life has turned out. plus knowing that it is just a matter of time before the trucking career ends.

    28 years experience and you go with a company like Decker, they advertise all the time and have an average reputation at best. Think driver, THINK.

    not really i worked for SRT and loved it there. i quit to buy my own truck and was offered a deal while buying the truck to run a more local route where i could be home weekends and could get home if needed.....decker could have been a good place if they where not hiring 9 or more drivers a week and short on trucks for new drivers and short of freight with them trying to build up the terminal in montana

    Of course you lose money if you don't hit their targets! Why piss and moan about it after the fact. All of the bonuses are dicussed in orientation, were you asleep or just figured you knew it all after Soooooo' many years driving. Another bogus post from a driver that can't meet a companies realistic expectations.

    * I have numerous friends driving for their flatbed and reefer divisions out of Ft Dodge and they are happy and treated fairly because they were awake in orientation and they know what they are doing.
