    Well I’ve only been with this place for a year but I swear if an issue with the load comes up, need a tcheck, or worse getting the right info for a deliver or pickup it take over 45 min to hear anything back from anyone. Only other place I experienced communication this bad was my 1 1/2 yrs at Swift and the other 6months was Prime...but prime was a pure joke. There are not enough dms or people to help out and they truly need someone at night who doesn’t HATE the night er line....and actually picks up right away instead of you sitting around at a receiver for 20 min just waiting for a call back. I don’t even call anymore unless it’s tcheck related cuz it’s the same thing....”well can’t do anything tonight just have to wait till tomorrow.”

    I love this company as far as equipment, pay, benefits (haven’t used them much in a year) and some of the people....but swear just communication just lacks so much as time goes by and I’m genuinely out on the road 4-6 months at a time. I don’t need to go home cuz I have no kids, no wife or gf thank god, only thing I need is this sleeper and a shower and bathroom and I’m set.

    I'm in the same boat as your are, single etc. Just less experience, going on 6 months. I agree about the communication but it is what it is. I just plan on it. I only contact after hours dispatch if there is an impending issue that will cost the company $$$$ or unexpected tcheck (which doesn't happen often), carry cash for emergency needs, will be reimbursed. Plan on a delayed response. Sometimes it's hard to get reply's to other questions, non emergency. I just stay persistent and move up the chain of command if after a few attempts no reply. Sooner or later I get an answer. All in all I am quite pleased with Magnum.

    Com is the good and bad of the company. They leave you alone is the good. The bad is getting ahold of someone at times.

    Try the 800 number during the day, somebody will pick up. At night or weekend, you're pretty much on your own. Should have tcheck lined up beforehand.

    Once you get used to how they operate, it's amazing how many things can wait. Do your best, then go back to bed.
     
    Muskie Thanks this.

    S: High Wind Warning
    I-25 is closed from Wellington north. Hwy 287 closed Ted's Place to WY line. Hwy 85 in Weld is closed from Nunn to WY border. All due to high winds and whiteout conditions.

    is anyone else sick of winter already? I am on the other end of this storm in MN and as I shut down in Albert Lea last night a quick couple inches of wet snow/sleet pounded they side of my truck. Starting to feel like Jim Cantore... I keep getting sent to where the storm is hitting

    Start your own you tube channel, get 100k views per month and make a cool 5 grand.
    Sit in a puddle, put someone in a canoe next to you and claim you are reporting from a flood, if you really want add drama to it put an industrial sized fan to the side creating a hurricane.
