Don't take a chance.
Ask 'em about the optional Guaranteed Fun Time Insurance Policy.
Why no one has suggested that baffles me, ..... unless it's the cost of the premium, ........ it's kinda expensive. But, if it's fun y'all are seekin', let the good times roll.
Only problem is, y'all will miss bein' able to sit around with others who are tellin' their best of the worst Big truck truckin' nightmares to a captivated audience hangin' on every word uttered.
Do y'all know how to tell a trucker story from a fairytale?
A fairytale starts out, Once upon a time, ------------ yada, yada, yada.
A trucker story starts out, Y'all ain't gonna believe this *sheep dip, ------------- and so on and so forth.
As far as entertainment value goes, .... they're both about equal.

Sounds like their brakes are out of adjustment.
If any of that "#####" gets into the pond, what effect would it have on the scum?:smt102
As dirty as bein' at the bottom can be, those at the top
have to contend with pigeons, and other birds, dumpin'
their loads directly upon their shoulders and head. It's
a dirty job, but SOMEbody has to do it.
And it's just as easy to dispatch from the cab of a Big truck.
What they oughta do is trade jobs for a week to see what happens.
Does anyone know if those desks that dispatchers drive are governed, and are they allowed to idle for comfort? Personally, I have never driven a triple-digit desk and would like to experience the thrill.
Anyone know if they start carvin' a totem pole from the top, or the other end? What if they started at the bottom, and ran out of room for those at the top? Where in the peckin' order do the totem pole carvers fit in? Above or below the pond water level?
My mind is boggled. :smt101
I'm already planning that week PTO
An dont get me started how they fly Canada and Mexico 's flags at the same height as our stars and stripes (which is on one end)
Same here, I was not impressed at all, I know the first job is going to have more downs then ups but geez after 3 years with Werner I might make 43k But be a trainer after 6 months and you make 65k. I have no business training anyone untill I get at least 3 years exp. But some in my class thought this would be a good company, I just didn't see it,
Well, it is my opinion that only 'you' can decide if a company is bad for you or not. The large companies, such as Werner, have so many drivers that they tend to treat them as numbers, some drivers prefer that and some drivers prefer to complain about a company instead of doing their job. If you spend hours looking at all the negative comments about a company you are about to hire on with, you will go into the job with a negative idea and probably have a negative experience. What is terrible for one drive, and personality, is not the same as with another. While I totally agree that new drivers should be warned about potentially bad companies, I don't think personal opinions should be held to to high of a standard. Let me explain...
Company A makes drivers wait, has crappy equipment, pays lousy, etc. These are opinions.
Company B has such a bad safety record that it is forced by a court of law to show a video of accidents its drivers caused...this is a fact. (I was forced to watch the video and to see the bloody arm of a child under a company truck wasn't a fun experience.)
In my opinion a safety record is much more damning of a problem then a company forgetting my name or making me sit an extra day. Very few companies can keeps its drivers moving at all times.
Just my input...
I really wish it was just sitting an extra day. Yesterday, after waiting 6 days for that mythical trainer to appear, they call my room and tell me they want to send me to the St Louis bus terminal to wait for a trainer that runs a dedicated on the East coast. Far cry from the Western 11 I signed up for. little hard to get home to CO from Florida. I politely said no. I dont believe my employer should expect a woman to travel alone to somewhere they've never been, let alone one of the more dangerous bus terminals in the country. I asked for a bus ticket home (to wait closer to terminal there) and somehow they said they had a trainer out West. My "patience" with that extra day or so, has officially run out
