    I understand, and sorry for being so blunt, but that's how I was raised. Made a note of what you said. Have a blessed day, and be safe.

    I wish there was some sort of Forum background check for posters like this.
    See if we had background checks, we could prevent the paid bloggers from blogging, or the disgruntled person from spewing their spew.
    I almost tend to think FatSlob has been with Con-way for less than a couple months, probably fresh out of truck driving school.
    Nothing wrong with being fresh out of truck driving school. I do think that sometimes people fail to do the proper research.
    They think they are going to jump in a truck and make all that big cash.
    The great thing about the internet, anybody can make a claim without backing up facts.
    Typically there is far more to the story that the teller wishes to tell.

    I'm thinking what happen is fat slob, bought into somebodies green grass recruiting scheme. Probably quit a decent job, and then wasn't so green as the recruiting guy said it was. It happens all the time. Especially since most of these people on these forums are students or wanna b's and can't tell the difference between a trucker story, and somebody who just truly loves their job.

    At Con-way, you can make $25,000, plus the regular recruiting pay for winning the recruiting contest.
    What the heck, why not, through that employee# out there.
    Me, I'm just to lazy, but if you want to split the cash and hire on, I'll give you a cut.
     
    Dennis_Miller and devildawg89 Thank this.

    Conway start pulling reefer's I'd think about it. I'm happy where I am. I had enough orientations and lies in my 14 years. Hoping this to be my last trucking company. Enough is enough next stop local or regional gig. But the grass is still green over here. Actually I should walk on home from the truck stop, but Its Hotttt out there. Guess I'll wait till wife gets off work. God bless

    I will split the winnings of the recruiting contest with you. Have no trouble at all in doing that. In fact, I can send you a pm if you like. Of course, that is entirely up to you. Yes sir, you are correct. I have no problem at all in doing that. After all, we (the drivers) have to stick together in order to survive the atrocious deregulation of the industry.

    Come on, you know there aren't alot of drivers with time at the company.
    The company doesn't want long term drivers, that they have to pay more.
    Jeez, if your going to have a conspiracy, get it on the right track.
    Why would they stay?

    What are the politics and company practices that we are to remain ignorant of?
    Is it a conspiracy theory to try to starve the drivers out.
    I fail to understand the logic.
    The company makes the money on productivity of the equipment and employees.
    Now with that, there is some freight that is not driver friendly such as TSC, but profitable for the company.
    I think they are even trying to help by making fleets that get a guarantee wage for running Intra-Texas.

    I agree with your posting, mustang970. There should be some sort of background check out there for these type of forums. Unless there is a value claim against the company, which in this particular posting, I do not see anything that would be relevant of how this company is doing anything wrong. The internet has come a long ways since my earlier days of not having the internet, nor did I have a cell phone in the past. I may have to do some researching on the internet to find out if in fact there would be something out there in order to prohibit such postings, but then again, that would be a violation of the person's first amendment rights according to the U.S. Constitution.
