    This place is terrible and so are most of Usg places. Ideally it’s supposed to be a drop and hook for flatbed and wen u get there all you should have to do is double check your load and head out but this is not the case at all. Majority of the time your load isn’t ready for HOURS and wen you finally get it you have to fix everything they messed up which usually takes me about an hour. Oh and if your a company driver majority of the trailers you pick up no good and have violations

    How can you blame a customer when your company's trailers are junk? That one falls squarely on you, your fellow drivers, and your employer. They aren't causing the violations, you guys are.

    The yard dog or ppl loading the truck can obviously see if there’s a damaged guardrail, flat tire, or messed up glad hand before loading the trailer but they still decide to load it anyways because they only care about the load

    It is not the yard dog's responsibility to ensure your company's trailers are in proper condition, it is your employees' responsibility. All the yard driver is supposed to do is put the assigned trailer to the door, not perform a pre-trip on your trailer.

    I guess that's part of the "new school," eh? Blame others for your own internal shortcomings.

    Even if you had a point which you don’t because nobody said anything about doing a full pretrip the place is still a mess

    Maybe if the company driver dropping it off should have done a better job of pretripping the trailer. Since ALL of the trailer issues you mentioned. Should have been caught by the delivering driver.

    So it's not the yard jockey's fault. That your company dropped off a OOS trailer. SMH

    The funny part is that in his review of his own employer, his very first line is "The equipment is terrible" yet he still thinks it's the fault of the USG yard spotter that OOS trailers from his company are loaded.
     
    Wasted Thyme Thanks this.

    I have actually worked in just about all facets of the transportation network, from trucking, to air freight, to ro/ro sealift operations, to railhead shipping, to warehouse management. In fact, I was once employed as a yard spotter driver, too.

    There's more to life than driving crappy equipment for a subpar employer that sends you places that take forever to load/unload... but apparently your head is too small to grasp that part of life. Don't live to drive, drive to live.
