When looking for a JOB

Big Scott (CFI Driver/Trainer and biggest fan)

Sorry you misunderstood me, I am only trying to help. can you explain what you are talking about? Cause I`m just trying to help others and look for a job myself and also staying positive about the whole process. I will never make a claim I know anything.Plato once said "I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.” I dont live by that knowledge but it does keep me focused time to time.

Landing the job and getting what you want.

How do we get the job we want? We all go out here at one time or another an look for a job, and for the most part and the end of the day I think we settle.

Settle you say? ...Yeah we settle, the companies out here are never going to have everything we want, but what if they did?, or could? Hmm? You mean I can have my cake and eat it too? well you know what I say? What else is cake for? and why would you have it and not eat it? So go out there get your cake and eat it! Not exactly easy is it? I`ve been listening to Tony Robbins while looking for another job, and he is so positive and up beat. Its kind of hard for me to listen to some one like tht and not be moved, So.... my first rule of cake and eating it is...... 1. Stay positive 2. Plan ahead, in other words before you quit line something else up or at least save some money and make a plan. 3.Get what you want. 4. Treat people like you want to be treated. 5.While looking for another job go volunteer somewhere. 6.Eat your cake and enjoy it.Trucking can be fun if you let it.

When looking for a JOB

Warning From The Moderators: You are about to receive some terrible advice. Do not follow it. We'll explain why in our replies. We're leaving this here for the sake of teaching.

This is just a short list of a few things I have found helpful, and most of them are easy. 1.When reviewing a company got to their Facebook page and read the reviews from other drivers, when a rive is boasting about how great the company is simply check out his facebook profile an see if he still works there. That really tells you a lot. 2. Go to the company website, if the front page is only talking about drivers and hiring then they are in the business of hiring drivers and not really trucking that much. you see they get your info and sale it to whoever buys it,also those companies usually have a high turnover rate, cause the more rivers they go through the more money they make, Now that doesn't apply to all companies who do this ,but most of them. 3.Check out the reviews and learn to read between the lines. 4........I would love to get feedback and hear some more ideas on how to look for and land the right driving job. Just another note I was working for a company for 2 yrs and everything was great , then my dispatcher quit and I got someone who didn't know too much about anything so I quit and now I am looking for a job. another quick note, For me the most important thing in the industry is pay ,followed by treating me with respect, or at least treat me like I treat you.
