    You can't even take four days off without something happening. You wanted to know what you could have done different. I suggested that you could have called in the day before you returned. If you did,they may have mentioned that your truck was going to get cleaned out. It used to be called "touching base." Now it's about enter something into a computer that nobody looks at.

    Good luck with your PTSD. I know how much it affects your generation.

    This has the potential to be the Swift version of the "Werner trainer s#!t himself" post...

    Need more detail OP, preferably the same amount you would give a therapist.

    You are here after all venting to us, so we might as well be your faceless therapy session.

    You got a year in, move on. Find a company that will respect your time and belongings.

    When I take my 2 days off after every 6 worked everything comes out with the exception of; my CB, ashtray, and sunglasses. None of these things are terribly valuable. The CB is a cobra 29 Ltd that was $100 new.

    I know my truck is used during my off time by flex drivers. If something comes up missing I just walk into the office and ask who used it.

    Wow, I must be spoiled. I can't believe how many people just accept this as normal....acceptable behavior. If someone went through my truck while I was on hometime, and yes if i'm living in it i consider it mine, I would flip my ####.

    But alas, I don't work for a piece of #### company. I go home when I want, for as long as I want, and park the truck where I want. Which is in my driveway. They are hiring BTW, no experience needed. Magnum

    you swift guys get kicked around like a stray dog.

    Why I've considered Western Express over Swift or SNI. They let you park the truck at home during home time.. of course if you get home time.
     
    SingingWolf and Chinatown Thank this.
