College student looking to survey truck drivers for research, how do I send out the survey?

I would contact ooida. Owner operator independent drivers association. Most drivers on here are company drivers, fuel and go.

Truck Stop Etiquette

I had an instance at a produce shipper in Ca where I stepped between a driver and the Hispanic fork lift operator. The driver was yelling obscenities at this poor guy and being blatantly racist. Granted we almost came to blows. Over the next 4 months I picked of Priduce there prob ten times. The forklift drivers did not forget me, I never waited more then 10 minutes for a hole. ****ed some other drivers off though. Especially those who had been waiting 4-5 hrs.smile.gif

MILLIS QUESTIONS

Understood. I don't understand deleting our post exchanging emails. I see email exchange on site often. If it's a privacy issue, the email address I gave is one I use for trucking only. So my main address is not clogged w the 10,000 recruiting msg daily. sorry.gifrofl-3.gif

I have had it

Oh I do so agree on the hating people part. I have a chance to open my own and could give a flying $$&&. I am so over the new breed of restaurant people etc. I was blind ten years ago when I left trucking and got back in the biz. Trucking is stressful, but a different stress from running a restaurant. Truckers can be grumpy, mean, nice, helpful, and brutally honest. I was always content w trucking and the lifestyle, I just let the simple crap get to me. Also I couldn't adjust my mindset from the go go go of restaurant industry. My impatience got ahead of me. I wanted to get "backing into a hole m" immediately. No patience. " A la minute " If I get the "do over" I'm going to be patient relax and master the art of trucking.good-luck-2.gifdancing-banana.gif

Question For Brett or A Veteran

Depends on company size. Maybe. I have a friend who runs a 40 truck company and requires 2 years but using the term "trainee" he hired some people w one year. Not sure the details or legality but he would do it occasionally. Especially if he knew the driver.

Oh Donners Pass, I went down my second solo load w Stevens, no jake brake! Supposed to go down in gear 1/2 of what grade is...9% so 4 or 5(Stevens rule)! It was one lane, 4 feet drop on one side( construction) and 1/2 way down my brakes are smoking. "Hey Stevens, you are going to cook that spinach you're hauling"!! It was white knuckles.😳😳 rambling again

I'm scheduled for next class but may have to drop out. When you sign their app it states they will pull all your med records. I can pass dot physical etc but my records are not correct. I had an er situation two years ago and the stuff the dr put in records are baffling. My dispute of these records will take 90 days to resolve. I'm pretty disappointed about this. I hear such good things about Millis especially Eden.
