    Note the trainer sticker. THIS IS THE TRUCK OF SOMEONE WHO TEACHES HOW TO DO FLATBED.

    This is a coil (someone) recovered from the interstate. It was secured with straps and loaded suicide at the time it departed the deck.

    I'm only uploading this now that I can no longer be hurt by this company after leaving them. Good riddance. This company might actually be dumb enough to sue over this.

    Their back lot looks like a giant junkyard for trucks from 2013-2016

    4000 series trucks are 2015-2016 mostly.
    But the newest truck I got was in the 2500s

    Tarp indicates fatality in this case.

    Reporting company drivers like this got my nowhere, instead I saw them getting promoted ahead of me, and I was subtly getting told by people higher in the company to stop making waves by reporting favored people like this.

    This is from a hit and run that occurred at a customer it was our fault yet the driver was not terminated.

    This driver had a completely dry hub seal and threatened to beat me when he saw me taking pictures.

    That's a creative way to store a mudflap(this happens sometimes). Driver said it was from hitting bushes.

    Do you really want to work at a company that has drivers leaving the yard with this? If your answer is "But they have satellite tv in the trucks." be my guest.

    Many companies have the same problem with wrecked trucks, but you won't see them because they were leased and the lease company gets the wrecks.

    hell no. I'm doing more college and local seasonal work helping with the harvest. I might take a job after I finish the spring semester though if my grades aren't good enough to work on my masters degree. Trucking paid for my college, I literally have no college debt after 4 years of college thanks to being frugal and getting my CDL.

    The first picture in Post #6 shows a Werner truck in the background.

    This is the mentality of the company when trying to entice people to become trainers.
