Is this job a scam?

Another consideration even if he’s legit..If he’s really just starting out and you hire on, say 6 months in he folds up shop..where’s it leave you. Most likely you won’t have much of a job history because they won’t be able to verify anything. Plus mentioned a family, does he have any benefit pkg that would be helpful to your family?

Have had CDL for a year but no experience. Who will hire me and train me?

Technically unless it’s changed recently, if you fail a pre employment hair test they can’t share it because it’s not DOT authorized. Would I feel comfortable testing that rule, NO WAY. Take the advice given and wait. I wouldn’t even consider it until I was clean a minimum of 3 months but preferably 6 for a hair test. Also I personally know a driver that just failed a U/A test because he ate a couple CBD gummies.

Fired

Not excusing what you did but if you were only 3 days out with a trainer and got fired you may not owe for the school. Don’t have any idea how the contract reads but just saying, some companies if you don’t complete the training (other than just quitting) you may not be liable. Just curious though as to how the accident happened.

Trailer brake

I never really thought about it as an option...Just had one in every truck I’ve driven until I went to J.B. Hunt last year. About a month in I got a new truck (600 miles) and it doesn’t have one. Y’all stay safe.

Trailer brake

Many drivers use them for silly things, like hanging their jacket on... Kind of destroys the trailer tires, at least according to my buddy that does road calls for TA.

So the trucks don’t even have ELD’s on board or they just aren’t working yet?

Congratulations to both of you. A lot of the companies are very similar. Just talk out what things are most important for y’all and look for the one that you think matches up the best.

Saying goodbye to Prime.

Congratulations Turtle. I am looking forward to your future reviews and Updates of your life and my Walmart. I live about 35 to 40 miles away from at Walmart DC in East Texas. I’ve often thought about trying to hook up with them. Although I really do like my current gig with JB Hunt hauling tires for Goodyear. The majority of our stops or Walmart and Sam’s.
