Company wants to edit my logs

It was two loads for the week, one of them was a very hard securement where I had to use every wench on my flatbed and 2 x straps in front of load and back. It was insulation so it required 40+ edge protectors and needed 3 tarps which I had to share tarping machine with 3 other drivers in the bay.

I get why they’re upset but when I’m on duty I’m working my ass off and it’s not like I’m just sitting around running my clock. I get they want me to secure off duty sometimes but in my head if I’m working I will remain on duty like the HOS intend to be used and won’t cheat the system. Last thing I want is for DOT to see I have low securement times or something like that, and I also don’t like working off the clock.

Company wants to edit my logs

I recently hit 70 hours on my logs for this week. My load is still 9 hours away from its destination and my carrier wants me to accept the edits it made to my logs so i could meet my delivery time without having to repower. I normally would let them but I already worked a 2 18 hour shifts this week after I hit my 14 for the day and securing my load off duty and am pretty exhausted (flat bed). Is this a normal occurrence in the business? Should I stand my ground and say reject the edits or keep pushing my clock and falsifying my logs?

They say I took too long securing my load on duty time and want to remove almost 10 hours of on duty time all of which I was doing load securement, which for me is ridiculous because I only have been flatbedding for only a month and want to make sure my load is safe for the road and protect my CDL.

Is this job offer suspicious or predatory?

I'm a recent CDL graduate with no experience and recently applied to probably 100+ applications all over the internet. I just got a call back from a extremely small company called Eisenberg transportation LLC offering me a job opportunity even with my limited driving experience. When I looked up the company they didn't even have a company website or any reviews on any website just a registration with FMSCA and DOT. the man I talked to said they have no training program or recruiting department and only 3-4 employees and currently an open truck, he was the broker and dispatcher and seemed eager to get me behind the wheel ASAP. Is this a common occurrence in the industry? I'm a little sketched out to be sending over all my information and Social security number to a random stranger/ and what could be a fly by night company, but the job offer is great for my experience level ($1200 a week) and i would much rather work for a smaller company than a mega carrier. Does any of this sound suspicious or too good to be true? would this be a good way to start my trucking career? Im cautious but maybe I just got lucky by finally finding a smaller company to take on a new driver.

Failed Schneider Hair follicle test

Once your appeal is completed, you will need to look at SAP for a return to driving. Until that point you will have a brick wall in front of you for driving a CMV.

This hair test was not reported to Clearing house as only urine tests are reported so i dont have to complete SAP and its not on my record. but its now on my DAC report and hindering my ability to get a job. so far it looks like the only options i have for hiring are the "second chance" mega carriers

Failed Schneider Hair follicle test

How would you fight it? Did you use prohibited substances and get caught through their testing procedures?

No i have been clean for many months as im taking my trucking career seriously, I even paid for my own hair screen before going to orientation to make sure and the results were negative. So i emailed Schneider telling them I wish to appeal my termination and to show them the hair test results I paid for out of pocket and that their test was a false positive. I also opened a case on driver IQ/cisive to appeal their report on my termination as its now affecting my ability to get hired at other trucking companys

I paid for my own test which shows negative results to their positive results. I also emailed Schneider's "expert question team" on the website stating I want to appeal my termination and that they had a false positive drug test and opened my own appeal through Driver IQ/cisive

Failed Schneider Hair follicle test

I recently got my CDL and applied to my first trucking job, to my surprise I failed Schneider's hair follicle test even thought I paid for my own hair screening before just to make sure and came back negative. anyway I was sent home and am now applying to any trucking job I can get my hands on but most of them are now denying my application due to the report being filled on my DriverIQ website report. Is there anyway to get rid of this or fight this? will it be removed from my report with time? what is my best option or company that I should apply to or is my driving career over before I even started? I am extremely frustrated because Schneider didnt even let me explain my case or appeal it and sent me home immediately as if there's never false positives for hair tests ( which national average shows about 15% are false positive)
