Why everytime I go to a terminal there is away someone saying i pay my fleet manager paycheck? I was talking with someone today and we have the same fleet manager but he doesn't know that because I did not said anything. So he was telling me that he is not getting any good load and he is waiting in the terminal for a load but I remember like 7 months ago he was telling me he refuse 3 load because it was going to New Jersey. How can someone complain but they're not willing to get the job done? I have the same fleet manager. Every Friday he make sure I have a pre plan for Saturday .

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Fleet Manager:

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.

Folks here say it all the time, you get why you put into it.

The guy turning down loads he doesn't like is going to sit, while guys like you will take the not so pleasant loads, and earn the gravy loads too.

Superlejera, you make an excellent point. So many people fail to understand how to reach that top level in this industry. This should be required reading for anyone before getting started in this career:

What It Takes To Be A Top Tier Driver

Not everyone is going to be treated equally in trucking, but in the end you'll be given what you deserve overall. That means the Top Tier Drivers are going to get better loads, make more money, and get more favors than those who are underperforming or are difficult to deal with.

Hey Brett, that link you put above should be added to the starter pack links that we give to all new drivers on here to get their career started.

I have Metro PCS (T Mobile prepay). From what i have seen no issues so far! Before trucking, I have been in some pretty isolated spots, and no issues them either!

I think you might of replied to the wrong thread...

But to add on this topic I get this a lot also. I talk to so many of our tanker drivers when I see them out at customers and I hear a lot of the same stories. I can't make any money and get any miles. However in the same breath they are telling me I am not about to run this area or that area. I am tired of the snow I want to stay south and so forth. All I can do is thank them because that's more freight for me. This is supposedly our slow season but I can promise you my truck hasn't slowed down at all.
