    it's good to hear that things are going good for you. sounds like you got a good d.m. plus you are probably getting home for your weekend off. just remember. when you make a mistake. then they will cut the the miles out. and they won't offer any forgiveness for that. when they make a mistake. they will expect you to forgive them. just keep that one thing in mind and you will be fine. I made one mistake. after that everything went down hill.

    I'd say 6mos then the honeymoon is over... atleast that was my experience. Had to call my DM to the carpet a few times, and now that we are on the same page it's management being a pain in my arse hijacking loads while I sleep. As long as MY dispatcher (call em what they are) is in I love it. When he is out good god things go to #### fast.

    I do like their night shift though. Could be better could be worse. They are kind of powerless in the grand scheme of things but they are good about getting things fixed pretty quick when ya do get ahold of em.

    Good to hear. I've been runnin good up til this week. Miles are hurting a little this week because of hours among other issues but once I get home and get that 34 in along with some serious R&R, it's on again.

    Yep, and a little while now. Could be better could be worse. Overall I still like em. Any gripe I would have isn't specific to marten but the industry as a whole.
     
    SAMMY6969 Thanks this.
