    All I can say is I don't like at all! I am sure that's the issues! With the drive cams the people net now this they have total control over what we do. If these trucks could drive them selves we would be without a job.

    That’s what happens when you see those everyday low prices. I #### my pants every time I go there

    I was in there yesterday and bought a replacement transmission for this International LT for $9.99. It was by all the mickey mouse stuff.

    I've also been warned not to talk to the wal mart company drivers with the biggest belt buckles. You'll be escorted off the property immediately.
    snowman_w900 and Humblepie Thank this.

    Really what the Department of Transportation? Most likey there insurance agency had an agency come in and do the audit. They are watching us eye balls everywhere. Every time I am at a store doing a drop and hook I am always looking out for everything may be someone watching me.

    We did that pre trip and post trip stuff a few months ago.

    We didn’t do any driving stuff just a detailed pre trip.

    I just did what I did when I hired on and went ballistic touching and talking about everything until the guy testing me got impatient.

    Worked pretty good.

    I forgot to physically inspect the seatbelt and something else.

    And yeah safety acted like the whole world was going to stop if we didn’t get this whole thing done.

    I had considered going to Global Ethics about the demeaning nature of the insinuation that all of a sudden I don’t know how to do my job but I talked to a few guys and they said it was kosher for such a thing and it wouldn’t go anywhere.
    misterG and Hammerdowntrucker Thank this.

    Of course they think you don't know how to do your job, that's why they watch you 24/7, why they give you 'refresher' courses and why you have to explain every little thing. Just because they hired you doesn't mean your not under the magnifying glass anymore.

    And just to keep you on your toes the safety man may beat you to the store and make a little defect to the trailer then spy on you to see if you find it, that's not b/s as it happened at my old DC.

    Your not paranoid driver, they are out to get you !!!

    Oh and have a nice day :):):):):cool::cool:
    Nervous Nelly and misterG Thank this.

    Everywhere you want to be
    That's a good way to set up drivers for failure. You can miss or overlook something they decided to do to a trailer beforehand, worst case scenario, you kill someone. What sense does that make.... people are human. Causing problems doesn't fix problems...
