I agree. Not blaming the company for a couple people in it. My only frustration with the company is that it is extremely hard to get in touch with anybody when you need to. I know they are going through changes. I just hate that I leave messages or they say they will call me back and I never hear from them. It will all work out. I have no doubt about that

Stop calling them. Put everything in writing and it is a permanent record.

Im glad you got away from.her. Hopefully you will get a great new team mate and laugh and make money. ;)

Thank you all for your support. I was waiting on an assignment today at the terminal when I ran into a guy that I met a couple months ago. We have managed to run into each other several times over the last couple months. Anyway he was looking for a truck to do his phase 2 in and I was looking for a team mate. It all worked out and I now have a team mate that I think will work out great. Here's to hopefully some good runs and the opportunity to improve my skills.

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.

If you’re asking about that, you should probably wait...

Michelle, So glad to see you are toughing it out. Your attitude will lead you to be a top tier driver. By the time you do one year with CRE, you will know the company well. You will know how to work the system for your benefit. You are in the roughest part right now, trial by fire. Keep up the great work.

Thank you everybody for the support. This world has all kinds of people and they are all in this field also. I take each set back as a learning opportunity. It has all worked out for the good so far. I had some trials but it led me to what seams to be a great team mate so far. If I had got off that truck earlier he would not have upgraded yet and I met have ended up with worse. It all comes down to God puts me where I need to be when I need to be there. Why fight the impossible? Just have faith.
