I like the idea of a warning. We put in some effort, but mostly it was for others to see what they're up against.

I would go with the disclaimer. It is a prime example of terminal rat behavior.

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.

Ok I'll do that now.

Personally I prefer to leave it, we all know the other large site where he would feel more at home.

But he does bring up common misconceptions about mega carriers, which most people hear. People here where able to counter his point, which may prove useful for others that believe that BS.

I'm a rookie..greenhorn that's been hired on by a mega. So far they have given me a job, a truck and a very decent living. I'm averaging a little over $1000.00 a week. I can't believe they are treating me this way. shocked.png

And by rookie I mean I went solo in December. Maybe it's the driver...just some food for thought

I wouldn’t delete it...at least not all of it. Put him on watch? Definitely.

His attack on Old School’s integrity speaks volumes about his questionable character. No other Genious has tried that...

I still think he is part Troll, part Chest Thumper.

As far as his running Swift down? I personally don’t care, it’s other people reading this thinking it’s truth that concerns me. We are NOT about what Brandon is about... he is the type we warn unsuspecting newbies about.

Ok, I've put a warning at the start of his first comment on page 3 of this conversation: Page 3

Hey that’s awesome! Congratulations!

I wonder what Brandon made his first week solo...? Not that I trust him to be truthful...

Thank you G town.

I wasn't going to reply, but as a complete rookie I wanted other new drivers to see the truth. It took me a long time in my previous career to get to where I started at monetarily with Total/US Xpress.

That's a great point! Many people have turned to trucking in times of financial distress and found that if they put in the effort they could earn a decent wage. It's a blue collar job, but it has potential for very decent earnings. It's all about the employee. It's all about commitment. Each individual will have differing results. That is what makes it so appealing to the type of person who has the determination to excel at it. Once you lose that focus on your personal responsibility to obtain the desired results you have to start assigning blame to the company. Then where do you look? Unfortunately people get this bizarre notion that there's some secret formula for success in the smaller trucking companies. It makes no economic sense whatsoever, but that never seems to dissuade them.

Congratulations Mini Me! You're making a good start. Keep the course and you'll do well out here.
