If a company is doing everything right for it's drivers there is no need for a contract. It goes both ways, trust.

Really? Let me ask you something........why would a company that has thousands of trucks and has been successful at the highest level in the trucking industry for decades trust some guy off the street who has never driven a truck one mile in his life? Explain that to me.

Let me ask you something. Why would anyone trust a company that needs to constantly hire new drivers because of high turn over rate and subject those drivers to a contract (slavery)? What are they doing wrong that makes them need to resort to such tactics? Explain that to me.

If you want a civil and logical reply, please refrain from calling an employment contract with any trucking company who took all the risks to train their student drivers a form of slavery. It’s not even close.

Mark, go to any truck stop lounge and you'll see why turnover is high. Most drivers refuse to take personal responsibility. I didnt realize a company giving somebody an opportunity to better their life is SLAVERY??? GTFO with that crap. We have several drivers that made 50k+ their first year despite enduring that year contract (or slavery as you put it) and stayed after their obligation was up. Ever since you've came in here you seem to "know" more than anybody else. If your advice is so great then follow it and get out there. For you to give career advice for something you're all but clueless about is silly. I signed a 1 year contract and fulfilled it, and was extremely grateful for the money it allowed me to make to better provide for my family.

My words and logic can speak for themselves, although I see that some want to downplay my points thru credentials.

I'm not saying that going the contract route to gain entry is all bad, it's just the last resort I would take.

I got my CDL A, plus all endorsements, thru a grant at an independent State certified trucking school.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

And you drive for who? How did you get your tuition reimbursement? Answer the questions Mark!

There is no logic in your words Mark, just opinions, and not very valid ones at that!

Not here they don’t.

Comparing a contract to slavery is buffoonery.

What are your credentials you claim are being downplayed?
