Need help with issue

Thanks Kearsey, solid suggestions as usual from yourself.

Steven, I’m not going to create a problem or do something stupid to get out of this situation. I will either request a new trainer regardless of how it looks or ride it out. I’m not going to compound the problem.

Bobcat, no i haven’t spoken to him man to man. I wasn’t sure if it would be appropriate in this regard. Also, it’s not just flirting on the cb, it’s everything Ive posted and just the situation in general. You can always turn a cb off/down if needed. This is a situation I’m in 24/7.

There’s a cool feature on this website is called GPS tracker. It’s listed your current location in some neighborhood in Dallas for the last three days it’s kind a hard to live with your trainer 24/7 if that’s the case.

Career-ending accident; don't let this be you.

Hi Dave I guarantee you’ll be able to get a job driving gravel trains in southern Michigan, You’re in a great area and should make pretty good money doing that. We don’t really get started until spring though, I can send you some contacts for good companies to work for if you’re interested.

Not a great start to the day

You should be able to idle the motor without damage and run your heater just keep an eye on the temperature and shut it off if it starts getting hot

Halvor Lines Info Please?

I started with Halvor Lines right out of trucking school and was with them for six months until I landed a local job. Orientation and training is just as you said three days at superior then five or six weeks out on the road with your trainer, you do not team drive it’s the trainee doing the majority of the driving under supervision from your trainer. You can do some light team towards the end of the training if it’s agreeable then back to superior to final out. If you’re doing flatbed you’ll go through a week or so of load securement. I really enjoyed working for Halvor and will probably go back this winter when I get laid off from driving gravel trains. The trucks are all virtually brand new within the last two years they have satellite TV big refrigerators 2000 W inverter and bunk heater’s, you can idol If it really cold or hot out side.
