Brett, and GTown.

I will be the first one to admit I am not the easiest person to get a long with. I didn't think I was being upset with either of you. But there might be some lost in writing translation going on. And that is my fault, for not being more careful about how I write things. I have always arrived to be as teachable as I possibly can. I still have my opinions, based on the high standards I place on myself. That sometimes bleeds over.

I honestly value both your thoughts and insights, even when we butt heads. I will take all this with me as I move forward. It is something I know I need to be aware of, about myself.

Daniel,..."butting heads" with us, is of no real concern. It's with the people who are in a position of power and true authority that; with the stroke of a pen, can decide you are not part of their company's future. Don't let that happen.

Please re-read the thread I linked you to with an open mind. It's all, 100% true and was NOT intended to judge you, but to help you. Brett and I (and also Six String) have obviously picked up on the exact same signals coming from you. I have not communicated with Brett in about 1 week,...it's of no coincidence we both came to a similar conclusion and are warning you to think about what you are doing.

I also suggest heading over to the Diaries section. I wrote a short piece entitled: "The Job Interview Starts When...". Highly relevant considering you are about to head-off to a company, TMC, obsessed with excellence in every way including compliance with the very basics of boundaries and following instructions. You'll see...just look at the signs warning you about staying off the grass. Don't test them...please, try to trust me.

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Thanks G-town.

It took me a few minutes to realize it, but I did. In all my communications with the school, and companies, I was nothing but respectful and professional. I even politely thanked the school recruiter for her time. However, when she still persisted, I was unprofessional in hanging up on her.

3 of y'all pointed out the same thing. I am listening. And I will read those links.

Brett, as mentioned earlier, I was unaware of another link to apply was available. I would have used it, if I noticed it.

About Us

TruckingTruth was founded by Brett Aquila (that's me!), a 15 year truck driving veteran, in January 2007. After 15 years on the road I wanted to help people understand the trucking industry and everything that came with the career and lifestyle of an over the road trucker. We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
