Tough getting used to automatic

Wow i cant believe they really make employees buy equipment to use on their trucks i can see anything you use for your own person like inverter fridge microwave and such but to have to buy the things to do company work seems a bit crazy to me i guess i got it better than i thought doin what i do as far as the automatic i get more and more used to it everyday now to get used to backing an automatic international Big difference in turning radius ive been driving all cascadias and they are like cars steering

Tough getting used to automatic

My company decided to reward me with my first brand new truck while i'm not a fan of the automatics i cant lie in traffic its great and i'm learning how to put it in manual and i can run my rpms a lil higher for hill climbs which has made a huge difference (no i dont have fuel bonuses) anything else tricks or what not with these things i may not know?

Also if any prime drivers see this do they really made their drivers buy their own tire chains and a bunch of other stuff step daughter said they gave her a list of stuff she had to buy for truck not sure if she is bs’ing us but seems fishy to me

Maverick Transportation

I dont work for maverick but it seems most physicals are generally similar you will do push pull tests to gauge your strength and ability you wil pick up a box with increasing incriments of weight you will do some sort of small cardio excercise whether it be a bike or walking in place or whatever they use to be honest as long as you havnt lived on the couch as a potato your whole life i cant really see anyone not able to do it. Good luck go with what works best for you to give yourself the greatest chance at success and dont quit when things get hard those are the moments that make or break you as a driver

Stopped back to say hey

Man have i learned alot since then i really thought i was something special lol while ive been very succesful and safe and accident/incident free in the northeast (which is an accomplishment) i sure didnt act very grown up.glad i love what i do but id say i went from excited at what i was doing to now passionate about how i do it. The wealth of knowledge on this site is second to none i hope everyone soaks it in and realizes how valuable the lessons from these proffesionals truly is Be safe out there drivers

Tips, Tricks, And Techniques For Rookie Drivers

I didnt see this one so here it is carry multiple different size blocks of wood with you so if a loaded trailer is to low to get under you can save your back Drop your bags back your frame under the trailer set the biggest blocks you can fit on your frame rails raise your bags and jack your trailer you can repeat this till you can get under the trailer Obviously pay attention and use common sense but if youve ever jacked up a 45,000#er than you know its a nightmare specially if its old with crappy cranking gear
