That still doesn’t change the fact that dashcam footage is discoverable in court, which with a inside camera can bite you. That’s why companies are starting to turn away from that, even Swift IIRC.
No camera & home every week?

I'm all for dash cams facing outwards and even the systems that have them on the mirrors so they face down the side of the tractor; but if a company has to have a camera facing me as I drive, then there is obviously a lack of trust, and it's not for me.TomC71 and Mark_2wain Thank this.

Van Wyk has a terminal in Waynesboro (their main home is in Iowa and also has a terminal in Kansas). It's a great company, percentage pay with fuel bonuses every two weeks and safety bonus every 6 months. They also just handed out a profit sharing bonus for those empolyed at the start of the last fiscal year. They really take care of their people.
They try their hardest to get you home every week (it was rough for me the first couple months but much much better about it lately) but all depends on your load and weather of course.
All Volvos of Kenworths. All automatics.
They do have forward and driver facing cameras that was a turn off at first but now it's no big deal. It's an insurance issue and I get that. For a great company, I'm willing to look past that situation.

If it wasn't for the bonuses the company provides on a bi-weekly basis I would have left right then and there. Covered it again, let's see if I get a call in another 2 months.

A manager,or anybody with the company's password, can access and watch a camera at anytime and can pull footage from a defined timeframe.Canadianhauler21 Thanks this.
