Also I can guarantee you if you think you have gotten under their skin you have definitely failed at that as well.

Yep. He will be forgotten in about 15 minutes. Maybe some new person will pop in and ask about him, and someone will say yeah, he thought he was hot s*** because he passed his permit tests. And promptly forgotten again.

I find it funny you all think you know me and if I will succeed at this like of work.. its driving a truck, hadjis that don't barely speak English do it.. you all aren't special lol.. super truckers that think they know everything like you all are usually the ones that end up in the ditch waiting on the rotator to come pull them out. Just because I don't drive over the road like you super truckers doesn't mean I'm new to being around the industry lol. Bunch of ****ing morons here.

We know you because you've repeatedly shown us who you are.

The reasons why we know you'll struggle at this career are obvious to those who are accomplished at this career. You completely underestimate what you're about to get into. You somehow thought you'd be getting respect as a new permit holder, but then you yourself denigrate people with millions of safe miles on their resume by referring to them as "super truckers."

It's actually kind of fun for us to let just enough of your ridiculous remarks appear in here so that we can use them to help us educate the new drivers in here about the kind of nuts they will come across as they are entering this career. I got such a laugh from you saying, "you all aren't special lol." It's such an indictment on yourself. You expected recruiters to be begging you to come on board. Then when you realized you weren't all that special, you took offense, as if you had something worthwhile to offer them.

All of your interactions here with us have shown you to be completely brain dead when it comes to understanding how to succeed at this career. You are the epitome of the person who thinks they know it all after doing a little research.

We help people make the transition into this career on a daily basis. It's what we do here. Every once in a while we meet a person who hasn't driven their first mile in a big rig, yet they are already way smarter than us. Congratulations, you're this week's example.

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

It's even obvious to those of us who are just starting out.

As a permit holder, we are lucky ANY company hires us, since anyone can study a manual and pass a test. That proves nothing about skill, or even people skills.

THEN tell me where my attitude was ****ty.

See below:

hadjis that don't barely speak English do it

So when are you going to tell us what you really think about them?

See nowadays if you mention any of that it's a huge strike against you. Majority of employers think your going to go postal or something look that.

You've been going postal already throughout the majority of this thread. You've been shooting off angry, aggressive posts left and right, one right after another.

You can't even keep yourself stable and grounded when dealing with people in text format. TEXT! Who's going to want to deal with you in actual person form?!

I am well aware of the importance of being polite and professional when dealing with people, especially when applying for a job.

Then why aren't you doing it here? I wonder how many HR people are here that have read this thread and not commented. I wonder how many of them are from companies that you have tried to get hired at. I seem to recall that there are a few at least.

I mean I used to have to talk people out of their cars.

But you are absolutely failing at getting them to help you here or to keep from ghosting on you elsewhere.

I'm glad Josh gave everyone the opportunity to see his true nature. The Internet is loaded with people like Josh claiming they're just good, honest, kind, hard working people who did everything right but the mega carriers didn't treat them well. It's rare we get to see what they're really like when they take off the mask. They put together videos and forum posts that are more like marketing campaigns telling only their side of the story and showing the personality they want to portray to the world.

In this case, Josh took off the mask and made it abundantly clear who the problem really is.

For anyone new to trucking, when you come across horror stories floating around the Web about this industry, keep this conversation in mind.

Josh, in all sincerity I hope you can turn things around for yourself, or I hope you find some professional help. You have to get yourself right before you can get your life right.
