Change your attitude BEFORE you leave. You will go far if you go into this being humble.

Chickie,

After reading your posts concerning your trading experience I have changed my attitude and stated that in a previous post.

Unfortunately for those here that keep throwing my statements back at me, it doesn't matter that I've stated that or anything else because all they are is where I said something that I should've put in writing differently than I did to begin with. I'm not usually an a-hole about things like this but when something is continuously thrown in my face that I've already recanted and said it came out wrong I get quite defensive and quite the attitude toward those specific people. Do you understand where I'm coming from?

It's called drop it and move on. I made a mistake and realize that so leave it alone. Know what I mean?

So you're going to insult me because I'm quoting you directly? I guess even you can't stand hearing the garbage that's coming out of your mouth. Imagine how we feel.

I've said it over and over and over again that I should've worded it differently. Just don't see why you keep ignoring that part of all my posts. Seems kinda childish to me that you would keep doing throwing it back at me after I've stated I was wrong over and over and over. That's something my children do to each other and I thought this forum was for adults

I've never seen anyone completely contradict themselves or deny saying things the way you do. Man are you gonna be in for a rough experience in this industry I'm afraid. I already hate it for all involved.

Like said Brett the Trucking God....you keep throwing things back in my face! I've stated over and over I should've worded it differently but that doesn't matter to you the all knowing almighty trucker.

After reading her post about her training I have a different view of things and what's to come....if that matters to you!

You are coming into this with the attitude that the COMPANY owes you something.

NOT TRUE!!

That is the furthest thing from the truth

YOU owe the company. They are buying you a plane ticket to come to their facility. They are putting you up in a nice hotel. They are feeding you for several days. Training you. Putting you in very expensive equipment and trusting you with it.

Guess what. They don't owe you ANYTHING! From the time you walk in the door, you are in debt to them and you better be prepared to work your a$$ off to pay it back. And that means taking your licks and biting your tongue when things don't go your way. Because they won't.

You will get home. It may not be right away after training but you will get home. Just submit your hometime request as soon as you get your truck and they will try to route you home ASAP.

Chickie, Not once did I say anyone owed me anything and I know they owe me nothing. I did just finish reading your thread about your training.

Now we all know everyone is different and the things that you went through aren't gonna necessarily be the same for everyone else. Each experience will be different. I appreciate your input and warnings on how to go about it though. Thank you

If your gonna leave because your not happy then why even start? I can guarantee you that in the first 3 months your going to come across a whole slew of things that aren't going to make you happy. But that's just part of the job. Between waiting for loads or having to do a few weeks of short runs to 4 wheelers doing stupid stuff there's no end to the amount of annoyances you have to deal with.

Jake,

So now if I understand you correctly, if I'm not happy I'm supposed to stay unhappy instead of looking for something that would make me happy? I know there will be rough times and willing to work through them. I give up trying to explain to every one my intentions on this situation cause I've worded things the wrong way and it's coming back to bite me I everyone's responses

By the way, I have a young family so I understand how you feel.

I appreciate that. I have 5 children from 5-12 yrs old tha depend on me. Thats why I put my all into whatever it is I do to benefit them in the end.

What they're trying to say, I believe, is that you can't go to a company ready to leave the 1st time something unfavorable happens. Whether you meant it or not with that post being quoted, that's what's concerning. Rookies make the mistake of leaving before they've proven themselves and learned how to get things done in their favor at a company.

I do understand that CT. I really do but they seem to think otherwise since it keeps being thrown back at me the way I worded my statements.

Apparently I'm supposed to do exactly what everyone here tells me to do or I'm gonna fail. Is that how this works? I've never said I was the smartest one in the room and do remember stating that Brett does know more than I do. I simply put out there my situation and my way of approaching it. In the end my children are my biggest concern and providing for them. Maybe some of you don't have children and maybe you do, I don't know. As far as mine, I need to provide for them. I've stated over and over that I will put 100% into this whether it's with Trans Am or any other company. But in the end if I'm not happy, I will look elsewhere. I understand things aren't gonna be all roses all the time. Nothing in life is. I've said before I should have worded some things differently and that's definitely apparently because those statements keep getting thrown back at me....even after saying I worded it wrong. I appreciate all the advice and criticism on here I really do. Guess the first thing I need to work on is my way of putting things into words to keep everyone from attacking me and my character and my integrity

Old School,

Obviously you didn't read where I said I should have worded that differently! Y'all jus don't give up on reassuring yourselves that I'm gonna fail. That my friend is not an option for me. As I said before I will put 100% into this no matter what company I am with

Honestly, at the end of the day you have to do what's best for your family. All we can do here is offer advice and answer questions you may have. But ultimately it's your career and your choice to listen or not. I was lucky enough to find this Web site on accident and it helped tremendously. I knew roughly what to expect going in and knew not to over react. There are no unicorn companies out there, but there should be one that can take care of the needs of you and your family. Best of luck to you.

Thank you CT!

That is my ultimate goal in pursuing this career, to provide for my children! I understand that with the right amount of effort I can make it work with any company. Now that I've learned from Chickie, an actual Trans Am driver, that I was given the wrong information concerning training I feel a bit relieved about the low training pay. Just gonna take me longer to get straight financially is all.
