    2007. It smelled like wet dog. I could taste it. Filthy in my opinion.

    Eightball, you are correct that if they can't keep the promise of cleaning your truck, I doubt they'll keep any other promises. Also, what they consider clean may not be yours, so stick to your guns. If the truck still isn't clean, remember that you were looking for a job when this one came along. Good Luck!!
     
    eightball Thanks this.

    First impression is EVERYTHING and providing a CLEAN truck is not a lot of effort , cannot understand why so many places cannot realize that.

    my feeling is someone needs a job he can clean the truck to his own standard
    if you can afford the time not working to be picky be picky

    you know Transam Pete it's not our job to get in a truck and have to clean after some nasty filthy driver!! Besides if the trucking companies would keep their equipment clean from the get go then they could do a chrg back on the new driver receiving the truck if it gets turned in dirty. Also they could actually put another soul to work to help them to provide for their families by hiring people in their detail department. How would you like to clean after the guy who took the crap on the mattress. I would have to have walked away!!
     
    eightball Thanks this.

    do a few years in a slipseat operation you stop worrying about armoral and air freshners...luckily I have an assigned truck but up till 2 years ago I had to slip seat on a road bid..luck of the draw I may take a million mile rag out for a week or two and local guys run brand new trucks on 200 mile a day trips..most of our guys remove trash at end of shift but as far as clean windows,dash, floor boards ...ha ha forget that its not happening..if the $$ is right you can adjust to a dirty truck...
