    i drive for USX and had the opportunity to use this training. lets just say my trailer and a tree branch 'got together' one day. i called it in to safety, and was told "you really didnt need to report this, but since you did....". So that night when i stopped, i logged on, watched the video he told me to watch, and now im back in the good graces of the company. sure as heck beats having to be routed to a terminal, losing time and money.

    I thought US Xpress was a good outfit. LIttle did I know! I was accepted into their orientation program last week. Took the Greyhound bus ride from hell from NJ out to Ohio. I passed the road test, drug test, DOT physical, including lifting 48 pounds over my head. I was into my third day of orientation, thinking that "Yes! I'm IN"!, when I get a note telling me to call Human Resources. I called and was informed that "I did not meet their criteria"! After all of that, I got bumped! To add insult to injury, they did NOT PAY MY BUS FARE HOME!!! If I didn't have a credit card, I would have been stranded out in Ohio. I would have been forced to hitchhike home, which could have had a disastrous ending, (ending up raped, or worse, murdered! I am a woman, by the way). Is it illegal for a company to leave you stranded like that???? I was so sure that I would get this job, that I quit the miserable job that I had....so now, unemployed, and don't know if I am eligble for unemployment until I find another job.

    Revente is:

    getting an email
    modifying the headers
    having the bad people confess to all kinds of things
    sending it to their professional competitors (other company recruiters)
    from a bogus yahoo account on an unsecure wifi
    with a wifi usb network card bought with cash

    don't do it : ) it is the thought that is funny
