The big “two weeks notice” conundrum.

That podcast episode was very insightful, actually. It was incredibly engaging and refreshing because it’s so true. I feel like it applies a lot in life that people just don’t realize how much further politeness will get you than throwing an absolute fit. I made a big mistake with Schneider at one point that absolutely was my fault (got stuck on the side of a non truck friendly road and had to back out with 911 help) and it was basically made to disappear. I wasn’t told why but I’d wager it might have to do with the fact I admitted it was my fault and didn’t try to make excuses about it.

Not exactly the same type of scenario since Brett in that podcast clearly did nothing wrong (unlike my silly self lol) but I feel it’s the same type of logic. Respect and honesty typically go further than most people realize.

The big “two weeks notice” conundrum.

So I worked for Schneider for about half a year and just recently landed a local job, I wasn’t the biggest fan of working for Schneider for a few reasons but it wasn’t like they were some evil moustache twirling villain like some people make it out to be. I quit because I didn’t really like being over the road is the plain truth of it, and I put in my two weeks and all. They paid for my travel home, got me to a terminal a day later than they said they would but that’s obviously nothing I’m stressing over.

I guess my big question is how many of the horror stories of people putting in their notice and getting stranded are actually true? Because for me, even though Schneider wasn’t great by any means, they were totally helpful and did everything to work with me as long as I worked with them.

I’ve been lurking on the forums for a while before finally making an account and I figured this was as good of a conversation starter as any. Do any of you more experienced drivers have crazy stories of being stuck in Timbuktu after doing things properly? Or have you heard any? And if not, where do you think all these wild fake stories online come from?
