    Fmlfrtho, are you only applying for van work? If you’re willing to bust your ### and freeze your balls off in January, then maybe flat decking is for you. I know various carriers throughout the Prairies that will hire with little to no experience.

    Out of the Ontario and Quebec terminals there is no shortage, the BC terminal is hurting badly. @Canadianhauler21 just left the Toronto Terminal also, due to lack of miles and no western runs I believe.
     
    Canadianhauler21 and Fmlfrtho Thank this.

    Probably because he believed the lies everyone is telling about this "Driver Shortage", and the BS the driving schools pedal, that you will "have a job before you finish" and all that jazz. Couple buddies were told they were "guaranteed a job" if they did their lisc there. Yea ONE GUY from the class got the ONE JOB they had with a company.

    I've read this story before, it seems.

    They're using the lure of a promised career as a revenue stream for themselves.

    I don't like Big Government, but these need major oversight.
