    In 13 years of diving, hauling fuel is the best job I've had in this industry by far. Always something new; plenty of work; pay is wonderful and with the company I'm driving for, the tractors and equipment are excellent.

    No doubt about that. Kicking myself in the head with cramp-ons for letting this Pilot gig slip out of my hands. First it was insistence on moving to the area, then taking too long to find an apartment.
    The recruiter just told me nicely to "---- off" in no uncertain terms since it took too long.
    Time to invest in a small travel trailer and leave without notice. I mean, with as much as mental stress as the milk hauling is causing me, they'd probably make it unbearable once they knew I was about to jump ship.
    Got to change my game, before the game is over. Some may question leaving without notice. But until the practice of aggressive employee retention is outlawed, sometimes there's no other choice other than to slip out the back door

    Just remember, they do not give you a notice when they are done with you. Best not to burn bridges but if you have to don't lose any sleep over it.

    Truer words never spoken. I just feel like it's turning into one of those troublesome relationships you keep hearing about. The one where someone definitely should leave, but doesn't until it's too late. I've had quite a few options come up and this Pilot fuel thing a few hours away seemed to be a rather easy one to slip over to.
    Only other promising lead I got that hasn't come into full fruition is a nearby line-haul outfit. Of course the TM is actually too busy doing runs himself to get a look at the apps to make a decision.

    The area's nice. But this little pocket of the state is too limited as far as what I could bounce into. Nothing but cattle hauling, grain hauling, or more of the dairy craziness. Kind of weird when all these nice carriers with daycabs operate in your area. But since you don't live where the driver's domiciled, you're not part of the club.

    Well my time fuel hauling came to an end. they decided to sell out to another company. I lost my hourly pay, my assigned truck and a bunch of other crap I didnt sign up for. They were going to load base pay and were cutting my pay by 400$ a week.

    Should have called the union in while all the drivers were pissed off with nothing to lose.
