    Who are the best dispachers over there is what I wanna know or are they all equal sounds like everyone is getting the miles they need. Sounds like a great company I'm looking forward to working there to be honest. I think I have made my decision to come on board after chatting with you guys I feel much better about it for sure

    @BeHereNow97 no, I am not, nor have I ever been employed by FCC. I just know a lot of these rowdy folks from when they worked where I do! At least they had enough sense to leave and go somewhere else.

    Ok, guess I’ll missing something, again.

    As mentioned a few times before, both here and in DM, the “policy” is 7/1

    Is there another way to say it?

    Déjà vu all over again… Lol

    I’ll gladly answer your question the same way I did the last time you asked it on Monday @ 2:47PM … :)

    “I haven’t heard a bad word about any of the DMs or the Planners so I guess they are all the best.”

    In fact, that’s one of the things that stood out here for me was that no one seems to complain about their DMs and Planners. (I mean seriously, this is Trucking! If we can’t biotch about our DMs & Planners, what are we going to do, right?)

    Does that mean it always goes smoothly and without a hitch? No, but I think we all know the fine folks back in the Office are doing everything they can to keep us moving and when things go sideways, we certainly can be flexible and adjust as needed.

    If you come on board, you will have a whole team working together to support you.

    Hey Midwest, one more bit of advice on the 8-2/7-3 split, it does not extend your 14, only pauses it. Example, a couple of days ago I had a very busy day, 690 + miles with 4 drop and hooks. I wanted to make it to the fourth one that day to pick it up because it was Tuesday and I wanted the deadhead miles on this check. I got held up at a couple of them and really burned up my clock. As I was on my way to deliver the third one I only had a 19 minute difference between my 14-hour clock and my 11. I needed a shower and knew I probably wouldn't be parking anywhere that evening where I could get one. So I took a two-hour break had lunch and grab the shower. That paused my 14-hour clock so that when I started driving it was exactly as it was before 19 minutes ahead of my 11. Just didn't want you to think that it extended your 14-hour clock and end up getting yourself in trouble

    Good to hear Midwest . Ok got it 1 day for every ,7 worked is the policy I just like to know what I'm getting into. This is a solid company for sure with the 80 percent drop and hook. One more thing after you get a load out if the yard is it kinda out and back to the yard it kinda sounds that way if they want you to come in roughly every 2 weeks or so to the shop? There are 2 shops I assume in council bluffs and Fremont to take care of this?

    No, it is not out and back to the yard. It is out and back to the Nebraska area usually within a couple hours of the yard and then they can bounce you to one of the Yards for a p.m. if need be. Yes there are two shops Fremont and Council Bluffs
     
    MidWest_MacDaddy and Michael1771 Thank this.
