    I'm scheduled to leave for Schneider and their jetset solo "opportunity", but it seems I've been lied to. I was told three weeks out in the beginning. Then I was corrected to a minimum of three weeks. Now I see on my paperwork emailed to me that it's one month out.
    Just a heads up to anyone considering this "opportunity".
    Anyone else here have experience with this specific opportunity?

    Your response has nothing to do with what I was saying or asking. Nobody asked for anyone's advice on life decisions. What was being asked is has anyone else had experience with this particular opportunity.

    The foundation of what I'm saying is if they lie at this how do I know what else they're lying about.

    Lying is fairly common in this industry. It is probably miscommunication from the recruiting department and the operations/training department. A change from 3 weeks to one month out is not a big deal. If this small change gets in your crawl, you will have a difficult time out here.

    And no, I have not experience in this opportunity.

    You must run a minimum of 3 weeks at a time.

    Initially you will have orientation (1 week if experienced 3 if not), then start on a 3 week tour.

    Your whole life is going to be spent in the truck, out on the road, so every company plays that game where they tell you one thing and deliver another or they tell you you will be home "every week" and it will be true, but you will only have time to stop for 30 minutes and then you have to leave for a delivery.

    Also, home "on" the weekend and home "for" the weekend mean 2 different things.lol

    I used to drive for them. They lied to me on several occasions, twice in writing. They want to make the driver call them on it.

    Never drove for them. So for a fact I do nit have the answer. From your question, just going by experiance. I'd say no you were not lied to. When they said stay put 3 weeks, then 3 weeks minimum is the same thing. Somewhere along the line, between your initial conversation. And the actual come to orientation start date they realized, for whatever reason. It needed to be 4 weeks out not 3 So they changed it to 4 weeks. You got caught during the change. In any event it doesn't matter. Once up and running that is between you and your dispatcher. The hell with the officil company policy.

    Wait the trucking industry is all lies? When did that happen?
    If it's on the interweb, tv, radio, or in funny paper you know it's never a lie.

    It is funny to me how some folks have an opinion of the lies that are told in this industry and the expectation that drivers just roll over and accept all of things wrong with the industry but yet no driver will ever admit to accepting cheap freight.
    Can't folks just express some frustration here without being told to suck it up and pay your dues?
