    I was training with "K"( first initial of company name) refrigeration truck and after having been screamed and yelled at by my trainer while I was trying to learn to back up, I was kindly approached by a trucker in a blue tractor-trailer (wish I remembered the name, but I don't). He helped give me advice and reassurance after having witnessed her disrespectful treatment of me. If anyone can put on CB or circulate that I wish I could talk to him. This was at a truck stop in Texas on 8/16. I'm a white female. He would remember the incident!

    Please please find another company to work for, you and every other driver does not need a POS "trainer" yelling at them or anything like that. Report the POS when you can, the company needs to address this.

    We have so much garbage in this industry, we need to clean it up but it starts with people who are new understanding that they are not slaves and those who are abusive need to be reported and fired.

    Can't help you on your quest but good luck and stay safe.

    This so called trainer, who should not be a trainer in the first place forgets that she was a new driver once. NO ONE should be treated like that! Find a new trainer or company who will treat you with the dignity respect you deserve. Also take all the time you need to back in. If you don't hit anything, then you did ok.

    Thank you so much. I actually walked away several days after all the abuse and driving with almost no sleep. It wasn't safe and you warm my heart with your concern

    Trainers at megas only exist because they believe in training.

    None of them do it to pimp students for extra money.

    Surprised, the trainer didn't start fight with SOB who interfere with his training process.
    Seen it, done it.

    Well. I've read hundreds of trainers post on this forum and all are intellectual humanitarians.

    None do it for the money.
     
    dunchues, Vampire and Snailexpress Thank this.

    Thank you for your thoughts. I did report to the company and they have done nothing, including not responding to me. I've made the first 2 calls and still haven't heard back. I will still pursue.
     
    Snailexpress Thanks this.
