I was on my lead trainers truck In the middle of the country when he got a call that a sexual harassment claim has been made by a previous female student of his this lead to numerous phone calls and stress and distraction of his driving , come to find out they also temporarily pulled his lead certification while I was on the truck with him CRST confirmed he Should have not been told this information while I was on the truck nor should I have been on the truck with him with no lead certification. Long story short I ended up getting off the truck rather than drive across the country with this man in the state of mind he was in thinking he was going to be terminated. I ended up going home from California to Delaware. I’m considering asking CRST to cancel my contract, thoughts ?many other unsafe things he did while I was on the Truck as well

Second day out I found a flat on my pretrip that he missed and drove 300 miles on he does not pretrip , throws trash out the window , would rather me have a tractor go into oncoming traffic rather than de accelerate and let them pass , would not like me do my own post trip on the Qualcomm , marked me as off duty while I was in the passengers seat

Qualcomm:

Omnitracs (a.k.a. Qualcomm) is a satellite-based messaging system with built-in GPS capabilities built by Qualcomm. It has a small computer screen and keyboard and is tied into the truck’s computer. It allows trucking companies to track where the driver is at, monitor the truck, and send and receive messages with the driver – similar to email.

As was stated in the previous thread. THIS WAS AN INDIVIDUALS BEHAVIOR, not the company. You signed a contract. Honor it. I would be happy to work for a company that is investigating harassment claims. Did they goof up pulling his lead certification while you were on the truck? I think so, but are you telling me you never made a mistake at a job?

Right. What's the point in posting this same topic twice, David Z.?

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

You did the same thing with a topic you posted about the hearing test, then you were worried about the physical at CRST. Next, it was an inquiry about getting out of the contract at CRST. Now, it's a lousy trainer at CRST.

Have you encountered anything positive driving or at CRST? This is not the website for company bashing, subtle or otherwise.

Lots of drivers started their driving careers at CRST, myself included.

Since you seem to know everything.... good luck. NOBODY will hire you until your contract is paid in full. For the record, I've never driven for any mega carrier, or done OTR at all.

OTR:

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.

I know I'm nobody (not a trucker, just the 'wife') but I concur. O/P should read MillionMiler24's threads and posts. CRST got him LITERALLY out of despair and homelessness, and look at him now. I'd sure love to meet that guy, with his grit and determination.

Sure wish I could post links, dang me.

I started there, yes. I drive for CFI now.

Your leaving them like that will really teach them a lesson! We will probably hear about CRST declaring Chapter 7 before the end of this week.

Good luck at home in your future endeavors.
