Welcome aboard. I'm a Swift hostler at the Target DC in Albany, Oregon. Not a terrible gig overall.

Paul I really want to commend you for staying the course. I think you've landed in a good place, a just reward for not giving up, learning from mistakes, always maintaining a positive attitude, and taking the challenges in stride.

Great job!

It's always interesting (and gratifying) to see those who stay the course and don't get a case of "greener pastures syndrome" - get the rewards that seniority brings. Choices, higher pay and the respect of folks above you (without which, you wouldn't get better opportunities thrown your way).

Without trying to sound condescending, I'm proud of you. Its been a hectic year of frustration and home/work balancing...and you didn't give up.

So glad you are happy ;)

Please explain to your wife that it's not nice to refer to a man's toy as "cute"! LMAO

Congrats on the gig and a raise!

Hahaha I told her that and she thought you were talking about something else. Apparently my dirty mind has rubbed off on my wife.rofl-1.gifrofl-2.gif

Thanks G, Rick, Rainy...it was definitely a difficult year. Rewarding, yes, but not easy. I don't anticipate this year being nearly as difficult now that I've had a good sampling of the industry and have some experience. Plus, otr was NOT a good fit for me. I think this will be much better.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Hey man! Yeah I remember you posting about that. You still get to do store runs?

They're starting my yard training this weekend doing nights five nights a week for the next two weeks. After that I'll probably do yard work 3 nights a week plus a few day store runs each week.
