    Your spot on!! Guessing that’s part of the 42 million they will save. Watch this year they will take away our layover pay. Picking the fleet apart little by little.

    Yes Pre trip your trailer to the best of your ability pull it up do your walk around bend down check the brakes the drums. I do that to all of them new and old. Had a drum come apart on me in transit a few years ago luckily no behind me. I did my Pretrip just like mentioned and still had an issue I didn’t catch before. Safey consider it an equipment failure no fault of mine I was lucky.

    Eh Dennis could be you best friend when you were in the right.

    I saw him help a driver that by policy should have been terminated. Talking in a store lot on his phone hit an old light pole and destroyed the drivers side of a truck.

    But because he was honest, Bailey helped him appeal the term to Bentonville. Yeah the gh y is a sneeze from step 3(well not now it has been two years) but he got his job back. I would have never let him back. So Dennis was nicer than me in some aspects. I get the driver was honest and owned his mistake.

    He also felt talking on the phone was more important than driving his truck.

    They are already working on a new "streamlined" pay system...supposed to be more efficient in documenting what you do for your company:(

    He did actually go to bat for me when another truck hit my truck in a rainstorm a few years ago. But then, he turned around and sighted a buddy of mine for driving 58mph in a 55mph downhill? Hard to figure safty men out!

    He'll I would rather I had control like they say is going to happen on the peoplenet and wire.
    Takes to long to check green bar against the trip sheet. I have to wait until the end of lay period. The new system I can just check my trips every couple days.

    Yeah some days we were good. Others we were arguing his attempted enforcement of something that was neither regulation nor policy.

    I will say he is a very good accident investigator. And relentless in getting people that damage our stuff (vendors, outside carriers and such) to own up and pay for the repairs. And he would 110% back a driver that shut down for any reason. Sick, weather, equipment.......if the driver said it is parked it was parked.

    This was obviously filmed before 10/01/17 and his 2012 Freight-shaker in the background confirms it. I wonder how he really feels today? :dontknow:
