Victor C. II's Bio

Hi I am Victor Canfield II, I am getting ready to go into the trucking industry! I have worked previously at 4 farms 2 of which were dairy, one that was a apple orchard farm and one that was just a plain hay farm. Loved working at all of them. Then I went to work where I am currently working until I am out of CDL school. I really started to fall in love with big trucks when I was eight to ten years old when the first few times that I got to ride in I think either a Freightliner or Volvo Semi with my Uncle Bob who I got to go on a few rides with him on a few loads while I lived out in Colorado. I have never lost my love for trucks and equipment from that time on. I now have my CDL license as of 3/02/2017. I will then most likely to start my trucking career at Swift Transportation where I hope to do flatbed and specialized freight! I am definitely a family oriented guy here. I also like a good quality of life with good family quality time. I can't wait to begin this new adventure, because it is not just a job its a life style and a fun one at that!

I will dually notate that sir.

Everyone makes mistakes Victor. It’s those who learn from them that ultimately prevail.

Bird One false and I will explain. Im stating EXACTLY VERBATIM what Russell told me why I was being forced to resign. Period. And you all as wise as you are dont know what I went through during my light duty or how I injured myself and yada yada. I am more concerned over keeping AWAYA from CSA'A pointsa. my cousin told me they did me dirty, my friends said they did me dirty, I think it was either way. I did make some wrong moves and therefore probably a good reason to just resign me. End of story for them and lessons learned and relearned.

Just excuse after excuse after excuse. If you’re still aspiring to be a fighter pilot Victor one thing I do know is those guys are on it. Extremely hardworking and they are very persistent. Both can be applied to trucking but you haven’t really shown either yet. But you are spending a lot of time blaming and criticizing Melton. That’s not going to get you anywhere.

Lesson taken!

I have the Rand McNally deluxe motor carrier’s road atlas with the laminated pages. I can’t imagine driving without it. Multi purpose tool for navigating and trip planning. I consult it when trip planning, route planning and stuff like weigh station location. I usually consult it two or three times during every assignment. And if all my electronics went mother-in-law (that means giving me trouble), I could still navigate. Indispensable tool for every driver. Learn to use it, you will be happy you did.

I think its the truth plain and simple. People who are angry with people especially in relationships will do dirty deeds to get back at their ex spouse.

double-quotes-start.png

I'm not disputing your statement but isnt that mostly/entirely for DOT tests? I'm legitimately asking as I don't know

double-quotes-end.png

Travis, it's a good question. The fact is no legitimate trucking company hires people who have failed a drug test. They don't really care if it was a D.O.T. pee test or not. There is a question on the federal paperwork that asks, "Have you ever failed a drug test?" How is the OP going to answer that one. He's honest. He's gone out of his way to make sure we understand that.

The reason so many trucking companies are doing non D.O.T. testing is so they can keep people from gaming the system. They are willing to spend extra money to guard themselves against unwanted liabilities. Proof of a SAP program is the only thing that will induce them to hire someone who has failed a drug test, and even that does not force them to do so. A failed drug test (whether D.O.T. or not) is as much a trucking career killer as a rollover accident. In fact it may be worse.

We can empathize with our friend here, but his options are very limited. We have no idea of the veracity of his tale, but we've taken his story and advised the best we know how.

Who are you driving with Kal el?

double-quotes-start.png

I have not commented on this post so far. Have you ever touched adderal? It shows up the same in urine tests. My wife almost died two years ago b/c her immune system was shot plus alcoholism. It pains me to even bring it up. She took adderal and her tox screen showed amphetamines. Which adderal is. However her family assumed it was meth. At the time I was using a bit--100% off the drug now. Please no judgement. I was blamed etc. Her dr also stated if smoked she could have traces in her system if in the same room. If a small amount was slipped into a beverage consistently its a viable excuse. However no company trucking or other is going to give 2 s$$ts what your reason is. It would take the person who did it to openly admit to it and that would be a long shot. I hope you can move forward and fullfill your dream. God bless!

double-quotes-end.png

Yeah, none of that would apply to me. I refuse to put any medications in my body unless I get an extreme headache. Advil only. I am extremely picky about what I put in to my body. But in the end, it all worked out, so I am a very happy man these days and all those worries have been lifted.

I believe you! Although I know many on here can be pious and quite frankly go off of assumptions I know that people do people dirty. I would contest it first with DataQ from FMCSA or find a firm to get it off your DAC. At least you did not refuse to do it. I think she was holding a grudge against you and did it.

Keeping you in my prayers man!

double-quotes-start.png

How can you be living for 2 years with someone addicted to meth and not know it?

As far as driving, you are probably not going to get hired . You should look for another profession until you can put your positive test behind you.

double-quotes-end.png

I had my suspicions, but I don't throw accusations until I have the facts. Also, she is not a tweaker, she is a nurse by profession, she knows how to hide it. i won't be giving up trying to get in to a new school. I have come too far to just give up. I never gave up at anything.

Yes I know that and yes they are strict and yes I had some blunders but I mean just came off light duty. But not going to dwell on it. Time to move forward.

double-quotes-start.png

Not sure where you got that from but people dont use atlases for much anymore. Garmin has that in it. Probably just made a mistake working it since I was a bit rusty with it.

double-quotes-end.png

Ouch. I’m not going to say much because you seem like an all right guy, but I completely agree with G Town. You screwed up several times at Melton in what you may have thought were minor things but ultimately these things add up. Be it a big mistake or several smaller ones that got you fired, companies aren’t charities and if they have a worker who is too much of a liability they will eventually let that person go.

It’s understandable that your mistakes don’t seem like much to you now because you’re still very new but again, these things add up. It’s possible Melton was a little on the strict side and could have spent more time training you—that I don’t know because I wasn’t there and don’t know all the intricate details but unfortunately they were justified in making the decision they made.

And yes, people still use atlases. It’s your responsibility to know where you’re going.

So basically they forced my resignation. Plus with these guys I did not have a bunch of mess ups just the two I mention on reporting the trailer and vehicle.

Yes I got injured on my 5 or 7th load and it was to my left rotator cup. Another thing is it took them forever to get me to Tulsa because Southern Imaging refused to do the mri they were requesting for me because of a claim on workers compensation and they even took my insurance and still refused it. In all 2 months of time was used up. In that time I actually recovered trucks and drivers. So they had me in light duty. I was alright at productivity in that regard. Just reported a couple thing prematurely.

As far as my applications, Bennett Motor Express is working to get me in soon. I will be working with an owner operator whose doing heavy haul for Bennett Motor Express. Payne Trucking Inc needs more experience so that did not pan out and I applied to be a garbage truck driver.

Victor I agree with the others. This was all you and NOT Meltons. I recall you being over the top excited about how Melton was so great. You're now saying that about the other 2 companies that you checked out down the road. Did you end up getting hired by either or what's currently happening in regards to your trucking career? The first thing you should have done is trip plan, which likely would have revealed you were about to head the wrong way. Even if it didn't, knowing your destination was EAST of your current location all the signs saying WEST should have been a red flag that something wasn't right. You were injured early on with them as well. Were you doing something incorrectly that resulted in the injury?

When it comes down to it they likely considered you an experienced driver because you've had your CDL for so long. When they look at your past accidents, number of companies you've driven for your mess ups that occured here. I really hope you're able to get this figured out.

To the OP have you tried applying to Prime, TMC, or maybe Roehl? Those companies train, and atleast with Prime and Roehl if you dislike flatbedding you don't need to quit, you could just transfer divisions within the company.

So a quick update. Looks like Paul Transportations receuiter and I had a miscommunication about school. Small but significant. She thought I was doing it online but Liberty wont let me do that till I get a GPA with them so it just was not a good timing. Then I called Bennett Motor Express, and had to leave a message and then I called Payne Transportation and the super-visor says he is willing to work with my schedule of being in school in August!!! 🙏☝️. Yaweh has my back, even when I fall and fail in my personal and career life He is still there! Praise Him!

Wow okay that sounds amazing. I am going to check it all out. Also I am replanning and doing LFCC online

Why not find another online school that will take you? Why Liberty? I will hold my tongue concerning Liberty. If you like trucking stick w it for a few years. Save up go to non-military flight school. Check out Gaines Motor Express also. NC operation. Check out Freightworks. Not sure hiring requirements w Freightworks. No flatbed but strong small faith based carrier out of Rutherfordton, Nc.

Very true words of wisdom. Depressed and dreary are two good words for me right now. Im just drawing a blank on how to get enough saved without driving a truck and if it worked out with Melton I had that covered. It didnt though and I am at a lost. Like Mrs. Annemarie said it may not be my forte but I am going to be very sad saying goodbye to something I love to do.

Maybe I should consider canceling my Liberty application and go to like a flight school or a business specific school. Not sure.

double-quotes-start.png

Personally, I wouldn't be mentioning to potential employers my plans of quitting in the fall for school. It's almost giving them an excuse to not hire you. I mean this in a nice way but given your track record with past employers you need all the help you can get. A potential employer is going to see you need additional help. Most won't be willing to give it knowing you're going to quit for school in 3 months.

I sincerely hope you're able to achieve your dreams whether it's trucking or military.

This is 'Momma Anne,' checking in for 'arrival!' (at the 'home 20,' of course!!!) LoLoL.. Victor, you know I've got a special spot in my heart for you, son! Seroiusly ...heed the words above, the powers that be, and in all seriousness......is there any reason you have an aversion to going military, to fly? Had I had the opportunity, I sure WOULD have went to 'some' sort of avionics schooling, with an A.S. (or higher?) in ATC. My cards didn't line up that way.

I'll respond to your other message as I can, for sure. Yet, for now .... a reminder. Did I mention, my daughter is in ROTC, Air Force, and making $21.00/hour at PR Machining in Mansfield, Ohio? Look them up. She's a recent graduate. She did the KCCC route (Knox County Community College) for CNC machining, and the year AFTER she graduated, they THEN instituted the CDLA class! Would she have gone with the CDL first?!?!? We don't know and neither does she.

She still has plans of obtaining BOTH; Her Pilot's and CDL. You young folks HAVE that opportunity, and latitude! You've got some AMAZING advice above, man. Read it. Over. And Over. Get bored? Go to Old School's 'on the web' blue hyperlink. Read. It. ALSO.... look at Rob T.'s stuff! How about that????? Honest start, lumping groceries, eh? Yessir! Personally, it's a GREAT start...especially with a family (or not) and/or, just to stay FIT!

Look at Pianoman, too! Started w/Swift, and is now with System Transport! Around your age; maybe a few years older. Y'all have your YOUTH in your favor, LoL!

More later, but best wishes is all I have, for now & today. Let it 'simmer.' Sleep on it. Listen to Yaweh, listen to your mom, and your higher power!

Not sure where you got that from but people dont use atlases for much anymore. Garmin has that in it. Probably just made a mistake working it since I was a bit rusty with it. Anyhow. And also like I said, Melton is a great company just real strict and I have heard that from my friends at Melton to my cousin Collin Davis who owns a business and he says that they did me wrong so doesnt a few of my Melton Friends. Needless to say that was not a "burn or under the bus" comment so.

Victor… seriously? Do not hold Melton accountable for your mistakes. There was nothing wrong with your truck, and frankly; switched lines is a very easy problem to figure out (trailer spring brakes will not release) and blindly following your GPS in lieu of adequate trip planning. All you.

Sorry Man, you’re a nice guy, but don’t throw Melton under the bus for not overlooking your multiple mistakes. They are a business that needs to make a profit. You cost them too much money…

double-quotes-start.png

Hey man I worked at Melton up till April 22,2022. I will say this although Melton is a great place to start out at or go for a career they are very strict on standards and in my case I had made a couple rookie mistakes as far as reporting a vehicle I genuinely thought there was a problem with and then a piece of equipment I was recovering that I thought was having serious problems but I switched the lines and so it costed a few days in the shop and the shop lost my number so they could not get ahold of me so although I initially paid for the True hotel fee they reimbursed it all so it just cost a good bit of money for something as simple as a switched airhose. But those were not what broke the camels back. I was not told until Tuesday that I was released from light duty by a safety board member and so that added to me waiting till Thursday to get my truck then I get my truck and load and get everything around on Friday and then head off. What evidently happened was with my Garmin dezl OTR1000 is that I thought it was giving me truck stops along my route and instead took me out of route to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma from Tulsa, Oklahoma and then back across to going towards Clear Brook, Virginia where I reside since the load was to carrt me home. Well that took a good chunck out of my drive time so I turned in 126 miles away from Tulsa, Oklahoma in Chateau, Oklahoma. So I got a message saying there was something wrong with the load and that I needed to get another one (that was a lye I later found out,) and I get back scam through inspection bay and turned the truck to the shop for some repairs. Ok. Well then I was to meet with Russell Robertson who basically relayed the message that because I turned thoe items in plus the mistake that I was either going to resign or be terminated. I resigned.

All to say is, although Melton is q fantastic company they have some high expectations of their drivers and they have their own negatives but do not get strung out on Melton as the be all end all get all kind of company. Try for Bennett Motor Express or Payne Trucking or McElroy Truck Lines but do not give in or up till you have done ALLLLLL you can to succeed!😎👍🙏.

Praying for you Mr. Colman!

Your avatar of “Odd Ball” from Kelly’s Heroes makes total sense since you served in a tank crew. “Stop with the negative vibes, man”.

My two primary concerns that I didn’t put in my original post were: (1) Would I enjoy it and (2) could I learn to back the trailer.

So far I’m doing ok with both. I’ll be going out solo later next week without the crutch of my trainer. Will see how I feel about it in 10 months when I complete my 12 months commitment with Prime Inc.

double-quotes-start.png

When I was growing up in the hills of Eastern Ky, some of my earliest memories would be riding in the car with my family when some evil looking, dirty Mac , or Pete , would be loaded down with coal Jake braking down the mountain. Black smoke pouring out. I was always amazed because I saw them no matter the weather, or time of day. I always thought they were extremely cool. I joined the military to escape the coal mines and had my own adventures. As an armor crew member.(tanks). When my military time came to an end I was dumbfounded on what to do. The normal world doesn’t need someone to ride around in an armored box of death being able to engage and destroy targets up to a mile away. My other skills acquired were leadership and management. I didn’t want to do that either. I wanted to do my own thing and be my own man again.

After research and remembering my childhood I looked to trucking . I knew it was a way that I could have some freedom and “do my own thing. I found this site and did lots of research. And jumped in. I was a little intimidated by the thought of backing into tight spots and dealing with the motoring public.

After I got into my job in the dollar general account (had to get over my fear of backing real quick) I realized that 1. I loved my new job 2. I had some misconceptions that I could be a lone road warrior and had to deal with people quite a bit. But I didn’t mind it as much as I thought. 3. As long as I tried and stayed honest with myself I didn’t need to fear and I could do anything I put my mind too out on the road.

Why did you get started in trucking, and what were your biggest concerns?

1) Why did you decide to become a truck driver? What did you hope to get from it?

Why I joined trucking, was because of a good few reasons to be frank and honest. I have an Uncle who drove truck for a good bit when I was just young and I had always wanted to go trucking and get my own rig and at the time I was in a dead end job travelling an hour for making $10/hr and was told I would NEVER make any more than that whilist working there. Hugh. Well, I was working on a mechanical engineering degree and that was not working out; so I joined the CDL program in workforce solutions which was CDS Tractor Trailer Training. I needed to prove to myself and others I was capable of even getting the CDL in the first place, and so I signed up and got the grants and started attending class. Also there were people in my family and friends who thought I would never be able to achieve an accomplishment such as a CDL. l did not know of it till later on. I also wanted to go out and explore the U.S. like I never did before. I knew income was great and to be had in trucking. I came here when I was half way through school. I now have 1 year 2 months of experience doing various transports. I have hauled dry van cargo, reefer cargo and flatbed and step deck cargo and I have my Twic card so yay! God is so good to me.

2) What were your biggest doubts, fears, and uncertainties? I doubted that I could memorize ALL those individual words and parts of the truck to inspect in my test, I also had a bit of a time with shifting. I feared that if I failed I would dissappoint my family and I and I would doubt my ability to arise to the occassions for bigger and better things in life. I also knew that my track record for tickets at the time was horrendous and that it could cost me the job I want. So I was uncertain about that issue. Then I know that with some of my learning abilities being slower than others it could take me so much longer to accomplish and achieve this dream and to realize it all.

I finally got into a company in 2017 and from there, yes indeed there have been hiccups but I am still here! Failure is permanent if you allow it and I wont.

God bless yall!

Where One door closes another one opens and with the help of the safety director!

Email that I sent to Mutha Trucker who does Asian Mai Show.....please be undersranding where I am coming from. Thanks so much for being here.

Good afternoon, my name is Victor Canfield II, and I have been trucking on and off for five years equaling up to a year and a month and I have really seemed to have a really hard time with either a company is not a good fit, or I have not been able to perform as well as I should have been able to. This last company Melton Truck Lines was a company and is a company that I absolutely loved. I have a lot of good friends and flatbed was fun and challenging. Well I had injured myself on my third load and was on workers compensation for 2 months. I come out of light duty and I get my truck after meeting with safety Russell Robertson. So I get my load and prepares my truck to go, and then I get rolling. Now the gps said I was going along my route to Virginia but it was not. So I was out of route. Russell brought up too that when I was yet on light duty that I turned in two pieces of equipment that I personally thought needed looking after and found out that I had just switched the lines on the trailer and the van needed nothing to be fix of so I wasted some time and money without intending on it. Those combined plus my light duty Russell said led to my being forced to resign. And I was and am quite upset about it.

Now I must say that I am a Christian and a follower of Christ. I am also VERY stubborn which takes a lot to admit. But I am a very hard working man and I try to do the best I can and get on myself when I do not do the best I xan do. After listening to my parents advice I am prayerfully considering whether or not I am to be in yet one more trucking company or if I should be finding a local garbage or dump truck job. Payne Trucking and Bennett Motor Express are looking into me. Payne Trucking is actually looking at me knowing I am to be in school in August on the 19th.

What is your perspective on this whole situation? Do you think God is wanting me to leave trucking? Am I wrong to pursue trucking?

I know that lately today, I have had on my mind, Transport for Christ. Now I am pretty certain of one thing, the Devil that liar would not be bringing up something like that, that would glorify Christ. I am not sure of other similar convoys. I think I would need to own my own rig. Which another item of desire that I wanted to achieve.

Another option I think is working at another comoany while owning my rig and working on the weekends or working part time while owning my rig. All I know is I want to be where He wants me to be. This trucking has certainly been on my dream list since being 8 years of age and the degree was to go commission eventually as a officer in the Navy or Airforce and go to pilot training.

Im just frustrated and confused and am in need of some brotherly advice and outside perspective. Thank you for your help! God bless😊.

The whole reason I came back to trucking was 1. I love the job and life style. 2. I wanted to get better at flatbed 3. I could save money more for University. 4. To prove to myself I am not a quitter.

Maybe God is trying to communicate something to me. Whether its not to do trucking or something else He is setting up. I dont know. Right now I am just emotionally aggravated. So forgive me if I am a bit jumpy. I copied a email I sent to someone for advice. I will post it here but between talking to my parents and God this is how far I have come.

So this Payne transport is going to hire you as a rookie driver to work there for three months (May, June, July)? Then you leave that job and go to college for a semester for what? Then there's the AF pilot part. Is this the reason for the college work?

I may be the only one confused, but just what are you going to be? What's your end goal with all this?

I know right! But another door yyet opened! So they had to send me home because my recruiter misunderstood that I needed to go on campus for my first semester at Liberty and it just was not going to be a good fit.

Made a couple calls and Payne Transportation said they are willing to take me on even with the school coming up!

Wow! Best of luck. Go Paul Transportation!good-luck.gif
