Getting really frustrated at my job - not enough work to keep me happy

Brett,

I agree with you that trucking is cut out for a very specific person. Some people are just not cut out for the trucking life. It is that simple. But, do you really think there is no way to weed out certain people that wont make it. Your saying all these companies have tried this and that to try to figure out a may to reduce turnover, but no one has found away so they just take a random approach of allowing everyone to give it a shot. Seems pretty pessimistic to me. I feel like if you look back at all your years trucking you will find some commonalities between the people who made it and went on to have long careers in the business. Or, there are certain people where you are like no way. There is no ****ing way that dude makes it and 9 times out of 10 you are right. What do you think some of these things are?
