"Pit" was good. I had another noun in mind. They drive slow 55-60 to get the fuel bonus. Shoot even I know that.

Must be something on your record or app,that they dont like. They didnt call me back either. I laugh every time I pass their SLOW trucks, Trucking simulator...what a joke. Move on.

That hurt. I cried all the way to the bank after you passed me.

I guess it's my city "Kiss my A** attitude, oh well. NEXT!!

George, as Old School said, be persistent and call call call till you get them on the line. Don't leave message after message, just keep calling.

I was fortunate and had a great recruiter at Prime, but her preferred mode of communication was email. Do you have your recruiter's email address? If so, try reaching her by email. Don't flood her inbox, try maybe every two or three days while you keep calling.

They may not be able to get you in on the date you want. If that happens, are you willing to push your start date back a week or two?

I email and call. At this point even if she does get me in I'm not going. Think about it , I get management involved she might or might not get a talking to. Meanwhile she knows all the dispatchers there. If I go to work for tgem after that I have a better chance of seeing Christ than getting any freight. I'm not an idiot. Prior to being a cop I worked in logistics at JFK, Newark and Philly. I know trucking cuz !!

Dispatcher:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Oh, OK. Just FYI, my dispatcher never talks to the recruiters. He gets his info about new drivers from the drivers on his board who train them. But you know trucking. I promise I'll cry as you pass me too.

It's bad enough with construction on 95 and 676.
