Well that phone call I just had with him was certainly short and to the point lol. He didn't seem too happy. I can't blame him. I just wasted four weeks of the company's time.


No longer your issue, brother! You acted like a stand-up guy (very telling for your character that you were concerned about this) and you took appropriate action. However he took it, you did what you were supposed to do. And if it didn't go over well, that's just more proof that you made the correct decision with the company you chose. You deserve a kick-ass weekend, hope you have it!

Thank you. I've got a good 20+ years left in this industry. I hope this new job is my last job and I won't even care about switching.

You did things the right way. That’s all you can control. The way it was received is on them not you. I understand them not being happy, however as said several times they are acustomed to this and you were upfront from the beginning about having other offers. I wish you well in your new position

We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
