    There is another way to be removed. I had my Attorney send them a letter, and haven't had a call since.

    They call everyone and I do mean everyone that you put on your application. So if your crazy enough to go to try to go to work for them be honest on your application. I have seen first hand people sent home on the 2nd 3rd and even 4th day of orentation.

    Yes, Im sure that works too. Except most attorneys would charge you for that. I tell you, the asking the recruiter to tranfer you to the call removal chick works really well. Its not perfect, a lot of recruiters buy their own leads and even if you get removed, occassionally you will still get calls. Even with the lawyer thing, every recruiter will get a email with the drivers name with a note saying "Do not call". However, if that recruiter buys your information from an outside source a month or so later, I can assure you that you will probably get called again.
    Now, to save some time with the thread. I know you are about to say, "well then, I would just sue JB hunt. I seriously doubt any of us have the money or time to take on JB in a court case, even if we are in the right.

    Yeah, I'm kind of wondering why "your buddies" had not taken the tanker job himself. Surely they can't be paying recruiters that well at JBH. (if they are, maybe I should be a recruiter!)

    I think doing some research as you have done is an excellent idea. Years ago there was no internet to get information from. If more people were like yourself maybe trucking industry would treat drivers better. Some people think driving is like seeing the country; yeah, seeing the country from the window of a truck, racing from point a to point b.

    Just because many truckers except the way trucking is doesn't make it right. It seems to me there is no financial recognition for loss of weekends, 6-7 day work weeks, out on the road 4-6 wks and more at a time, away from home.

    It seems that drivers are stuck paying out huge sums of money on food because they have to eat on the road; and it doesn't seem that they are compensated for this. Example. If a driver was to eat 2 decent meals at a T/A truck stop it would cost $8 for breakfast and $11.00 for dinner after everything $25.00 a day, for what would cost $5 at home. Do trucking companies pay the extra $20 a day in food? I don't think so unless it's some where in the pay. On this point companies should offer paid for meal tickets then you would be compensated.

    I have seen companies gladly offer 4 days off for every 4 weeks out on the road. WHAT? A person use to get 2 days off a week. Now trucking companies are bold enough to throw out 1 day off for every week. And what about working on holidays? Is there compensation for holidays? Do you get time and a half or even double time? I don't think so. All of these losses should at least be added up and given to you at the end of the year.

    The week ends a loan would add up to 102 days off. Instead companies act like you get enogh time off on the road. Guess what, time off on the road is not time off. It is a waste of time is what it is.

    These are only a couple of the problems with trucking. I gets worse when they start confusing your pay check and fines, and other costs that con-men, con-companies, conger up.

    I think you've made a good decision. Your 29 get into a job that you will be able to work at tell you die because the way our country is going you will need it. Maybe nursing, they get $20- $40 an hour, all the hours you want, over time pay, holiday pay. :biggrin_25526:

    Good luck

    You are reading only the bad stuff... there is alot of good, and if you like to drive like most on here... it's simply a question of finding where you will be happy. Be smart, read everything you can here, ask questions... there's all kinds of trucking jobs and all kinds of companies.
