To all the people attacking me.My question is how long can you handle being called boy and your grown. You should respect people and dude clearly had no respect for himself,the truck or me.Manning up is going home with my dignity and respect.No man should be called out his name regardless periodTreat others the way you wanna be treated.Nobody here is talking about the unprofessional communication aspect.If you know a persons name then call them by that.The 1940s are over and some people still mad about that.We're either one tribe in America or not.Im back home proud I stood for something.Whats right.No man nor woman driver new or old should be addressed like their less.If the money means more to some then fine. Not me.Too many other oppurtunites

I did not quit.I asked for a different trainer and was denied after i was initially told i could switch at orientation if your trainer isn't a good fit.As far as learning,you can't teach a grown man calling him boy and do as your told and things like that.The 1940s are long gone

STAY AWAY FROM XXXX

After finishing cdl school, I choose T.M.C thinking that 5 weeks of training would be great. Boy was i wrong.My trainer was a 500pound 30yr old from louisville kentucky with a cpap machine on his truck.Trash and roaches in the cab of a pretty Peterbilt truck.Too pretty to be in that condition.Everything was yankees this yankees that.Every drop above the mason dixon line their was some kind of confrontation between him and a forklift driver,or a customer.After a week and a half of driving 11hrs straight and tarping during my 30min break while he drove 1to2 hours a day,I got tired of being called "boy","do as your told" among other unprofessional obscenities.I contacted my fleet manager [name removed] via email to request another trainer which is policy.instead of contacting me to ask what happened.She called him the following morning next thing i know im stuck in columbia s.c waiting for a bus to arrive 7+hrs later. You don't drive from virginia to maine then from virginia to the bottom of florida all in a week and a half being a bad driver(2000 miles) which he claimed was the problem when the field manager contacted him.Stay away from [name removed] as a trainer and ask for a different one.This company pays 400 training pay and will use you for cheap labor.Its up to the trainer to say if you get your own truck.They double revenue of the truck by pushing you hard while the trainer sleeps.I didnt mind pushing my 11 hrs straight because i go hard.When i saw that the coordinator called his phone after sending her an email in confidence i knew that if he wouldn't put me through after 2 weeks because of where im from, or how i look that he wouldn't do so in five weeks. Dont get used for 5 weeks while the trainer makes all the money.The more i demonstrated that I love everybody,the more it ****ed his racist ### off.I guess if I was 30 yrs old 500 pounds on a cpap machine,id be mad at the happy guy eating fresh fruit in my truck too.YOU'VE BEEN WARNED STAY AWAY FROM [two names removed] and you should be good. #### TMC
