Having trouble with organization

I drive OTR with another company male driver and as hard as I try I cannot stay organized. I am constantly losing my reading/sunglasses, they always complain I take too long in the shower which I try todo during my 30 min break which always takes me at least 45 when I shower and usually an hour. It just takes me longer even if I leave with my hair wet. I also have problems with skin breakouts on the road I am thinking maybe soot from the diesel? I have face wupes to clean my face. Also my face becomes very dry and irritated while OTR despite my USB powered humidifier.

Are you going to drive class A with your current employer? If not, you will have a lot of difficulty landing a job with no training certificate or class A experience.

My company phas a ay stub that is quite ambiguous and I am not sure how I can go from a 1200 gross pay to an 800 paycheck takehome when my fed deductions etc are always less than 200. They pay per diem but at a higher rate (25% of gross) than my pay (21 of something, not sure if it is cpm or % of gross.

Company has me over a barrel

Hello, I am a CDL-A holder with one year of OTR team driving experience. I was hired by the company i work for right after graduating CDL school from a technicsl college. As a 50+ year old single mother with a 15 year old son trucking seemed to be the quickest way to a paycheck. I had no idea how hard just the CDL school it would be. I went from kindergarten to college, I.e. school straight to the west coast. Company put me with a male trainer which I had no problem with as long as it was understood that it was all about the job and not playing grab-as#%. Starting pay was pretty low with a percent going to my codriver for training. He had never trained anyone before I was told I would get a raise at 2, 6 and 12 months, depending on performance. Starting out was difficult because I was homesick and missed my child so bad and was worried about leaving him with his Dad. Fast forward to present. I have my year in now minus a couple of weeks and I have had 6 or 7 codrivrrs in this year. The last one was the only one I had a complaint about, and it was because of poor hygiene. Since then, about six weeks they have put me on hold saying they cannot find me a partner to team with. I believe this to be BS. I tried another company, a mega carrier, but found out that they would not accept my health card because of my medication for adult ADD , although prescribed under a doctors supervision. I believe they are retaliating because I made a complaint. I work hard, pull my weight, have a clean MVR and no CSA points. I really don’t want to work for a mega carrier anyway. I would like to find a small company or an owner operator. Home time is more important than pay. Right now I am really depressed because I have busted my butt for a year for these people and they are blacklisting me, i believe. They have given me some side work on weekends, not enough to keep us fed, and I am at a loss. I live near the Chattanooga area. .

Can't Find Drivers

Hello I am a female CDL A driver with one year OTR experience. The company I work for employs mainly male team drivers and recently since I made one complaint about a codriver that had poor hygiene and urinated in a jug on the truck and never emptied it. Since then I have been put on the back burner, they claim they cannot find a codriver for me and I have to beg for work on the weekends. I don’t want to go to one of the mega carrriers, I haven’t had good experience with those people. I am looking for a small company who will treat me right. I would be happy to work for you.
