It's not a definite no and can't comment further.

Well what are you looking for in a company exactly? What type of freight do you want to haul and how often do you want to be home? Those are the first two questions you should decide upon. That will eliminate a ton of companies and help you focus on the ones that are offering what you're looking for.

I don't know what it's called -- I guess Van or container -- as opposed to hazmat, doubles, etc. He doesn't mind being away, but two months is quite long. So looking for a little more home time (I am sure everyone is) or local/dedicated -- maybe 2 weeks out, then home.

Ok, let me preface this by saying I heavily moderated this thread to eliminate a whole bunch of cr*p that didn't help anyone and certainly didn't live up to our standards. I kept the helpful stuff and hopefully we can continue on with this conversation in a good way.

truckersgirl53, please let that be the last time you bash a company here at TruckingTruth. That's what TheTruckersReport is for.

Sorry about that -- quite frustrated to say the least -- my fiancé is the trucker, not me. Got good experience and training, but looking for a company for the long term. There are a ton out there that recruiters seem to lure you with same talk. Would like some recommendations for other companies.

Question about schnieder vs swift

Ricky, sorry to say in our experience, they will not keep you near your home terminal. My man is 50 miles from his home terminal and it took a week of "gentle reminders" to the planners that after 4 weeks on the road, he NEEDED to come back for a medical appointment. So that isn't going to happen.

Question from the wife

Any comments on which is the better/best company to work for? My guy is a newbie that just got released on his own a few weeks ago. He is doing fine, but there seems to be a lot of no money/downtime BS from the place he is at. The promises of making some change seems to be just that -- change!

He is frustrated, I am frustrated, my son who is doing the same thing, is frustrated. Is this going to get better because I am trying to be the positive one here, but they are wearing me thin listening to the antics of a company that obviously doesn't care. Thanks!

Hi - I'm a wife of a trucker

He is doing is hours and I have to say, both he and my son got mentors with lousy attitudes. Terrible they pay so much to be taken advantage of. Can't wait till it's over and they are on their own!

Anyone know a math formula?

They want the guys to manually go through mapbooks and figure mileage, hours, etc. Any easy formula?

Nagging question -- why?

Thank you Mountain Girl. I agree he is exhausted. He is a perfectionist and is frustrated that this has happened twice. He aced his pretrip and skills. Never thought the driving will be an issue. Meantime, I'm exhausted trying to keep him calm. I'll keep you posted.
