I’m driving a pretty dirty truck this week. I remember it from last spring when I drove it.
I filled out the inspection sheet accurately noting all I found.
It’s cleaner this time around but it’s still got a ways to go.
I turned down a dirty truck once and immediately saw that the inspection sheet went right in the trash, the issue forgotten, and was simply issued another truck. No coaching, no steps, that’s false info garbage.
But the fact that the inspection sheet went right in the trash meant nothing was done about the truck, so what I do now is to simply accept the truck, spend about 5-10 minutes a night cleaning it, fill out the inspection sheet and turn it in marked “Returned Cleaner Than I Found It.”
After that it’s in managements hands as to what to do. But I’ve done my part.
Also, the dirtiest trucks I’ve seen are all from drivers who’ve worked here since dirt was new. This guy has over 2 million miles. One guy is #5 on the board and had some weird aversion to lit up gauges and stickers. He had the DEF gauge taped over, OnGuard totally blocked off, the CARB sticker torn off, and the TARP hotline sticker ripped off. I figured this was tampering with company equipment so I wrote it up.
Recently I filled out an inspection sheet and commented, “The only reason I didn’t reject this truck is the sub zero temperature outside.” LMAO...
It’s all in how YOU handle things. I decided to put in back on management using the tools they gave me.
Hell, Walmart will even buy your cleaning supplies.
@06driver thanks for he clarification. That’s a subject I find a little nerve racking.
