    I should leave the moment I saw they are struggling to understand that trainee having departure fill up receipt doesn't prevent him from getting extra cash for gas reimbursement.
    They either didn't really understand the simple logic or they used to low IQ trainees.
    Any of them was a warning signal that I ignored.
    I changed my career to see less people and now I am dealing with less but the lowest respectable ones according this thread.

    What you're doing is ruminating over the fact that you were on an extended job interview and you didn't make the grade.
    You should be using your introspection to figure out how your actions played a part in this outcome rather than blaming everything and everyone else.

    I kept my mouth shut for two weeks, but instructor didn't tolerate a kind request of stop screaming after two weeks of verbal abuse.
    Being supposedly blue collar azzhole applies to instructor and trainee in the same time. Mutual respect or mutual azzholeness.
    It was very obvious from day one that they mostly hated thrir jobs and trainees but were doing it because of a better pay and sleeping with wife every night.
    Someone like them shouldn't be an instructor in the first place. Go do what you like at close to retirement age.
    I am only one person but a billion dollar business turn over rate despite of doing their best says everything about them.

    Did your instructor yell at you through every turn for two weeks? Sounds to me like after two weeks you still couldn't take a turn according to instruction, and last resort was a shout down. You got your butt hurt instead of internalizing the lesson, complained, and your instructor threw his hands up and said this guy refuses to learn, he's not a safe driver. I agree with your instructor.

    Build a bridge and get over it. The whole situation sucked. Life sucks sometimes. If things didn't suck sometimes you'd never know when life is great.
    Schneider isn't responsible for your car in a motel parking lot

    Supposedly not reading carefully is epidemic here.
    I already mentioned that we were not on the road until the day before termination.
    I could tolerate his yelling while parking etc in the yard but not in the middle of intersection.
    If he realized that I am not ready for street, I shouldn't be there in the first place. But I was, he was micromanaging me with the tolerance of 1 foot while turning a 70+ feet rig very slowly.
    It was obvious that he hated his job and very exhausted.

    Dang, dude. You washed out at Schneider and now you hate us all?
    Do yourself a big favor and go away.
    Friendly advice brought to you by someone you disdain.

    I witness majority of you guys already accepted to be treated bad at job and you are proud of it.
    You use your suffering and pain to show off as a bad ### and hardcore guy.
    Believe me, no one cares, even your employer. This is not marine corps boot camp. Probably someone from Schneider managerial level is reading comments and laughs "look at these miserable door mats"!

    You started this thread but you aren't getting the responses you either wanted or hoped. So you have made some basically insulting comments to some of the members.
    This thread is going nowhere.
     
    Terlingua, 88 Alpha, dunchues and 8 others Thank this.
