    Well i am not a trainer so you don't have to worrie, it is kinda random who you get is just who is avilble, if they are waiting for him to come in than they will ask if you want to run shuttle, my suggestion is run shuttle as much as you can that is wear i leaned most of my backing skills.... be safe! oh and best shuttle guy they have to train you is Richard van dousen .... best instructor i have ever had...

    Most of the #### you just posted is a BS lie.. I'm doing a 34 hr break right now and all my dispatcher said was--- that makes sense.. If I get dispatched a load and I can't do it for whatever reason, I just notify dispatch and they will find something else. NOW if your a cry baby and say I don't want to go too a certain place, yes you might get fired. Your a trucker making money to support you and your family. And if you drove all night, you will wake up before payroll goes home to send your release.. And reason they call you at night is you were late on loads an they are making sure you get there. I've been here for 4 years and they don't call me..

    Hey Happy, do you park at Cummin? I live in Ellijay so I guess I will have to park there.

    Strictly vaporware.... How many years has it been and they are still no closer to production? Coming from someone that might possibly buy one, it's disappointing

    i was team at tyson and all the cons from the OP are spot on sadly. i have no doubt that you guys had a positive experience. and tbh i think its a dispatcher problem not a tyson problem. and from what i have heard the one causing these cons to go up is going to get canned if this keeps happening.
