It means she has the function disabled on her device (it's optional), or it means a member hasn't logged on in several days.

Thanks, PackRat. Bummer, either way you slice it.

We tried.

Don't worry. Maybe she's just busy?

Maybe. Just being 'local' for first few weeks training, kinda odd she wouldn't have time to post. Maybe she got a new trainer or they put her OTR first, since the other trainer DEF'd the fuel tank ?!?!

Hope we hear. Thanks, Pack.

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 one thing for sure before I went through Schneider orientation and training I was on tt everyday. When I started that phase tt was the last thing on my mind. I was finally in a big truck. Was way too busy. Might be the same for her. I’ve been quietly following along her journey so I hope we hear from her as well.

That whole thing about the “trainer” def’ing the fuel tank blew my mind. I would have asked for someone else immediately , Ricky tik, with much haste. 🤷🏻‍♂️🤣 I didn’t want to blast that out right away but that’s been bugging me. Had to get it off my chest lol

HEYYYYY Y'ALL ‼️‼️ Goodness this has been a long crazy 2 weeks haha. First day tractor died because my trainer done put DEF in the fuel tank, nearly got into an accident on the highway backing the tractor into the trailer to hook it up after getting a new tractor (no I wasn't the one creating this madness),she done jackknifed the tractor and nearly broke off the side tractor panels, it was trust crazy. No one was in the office to ask for a new trainer cause apparently 5 people caught Covid and everyone was gone but the shippers/receivers. Had to wake up every morning around 3am to head out to Columbus,IN. Had to do alot of loads/unloads there so I did my full 11hrs. Just got in touch with my new trainer today and he seems like a very cool guy. He has been a yard dog for 30 years and have been with Carter for 7. I'm extremely excited and happy as can be!!

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

Wow, girl.. almost thought we LOST you~!!!

So, did you complete your 'local' training then, and this new guy is gonna do the OTR with you? Man, learning from a Yard Guy is gonna be a helluva learning expedition in backing, for sure! My hubby is hoping that 'his' yard guy retires soon; he's next up for the spot, lol~!! Mad skills.. yep!

How is that chica still employed, after def'ing the fuel tank and jacking the rig ?!?! When you say 'side tractor panels' ... do you mean the fairings on the tractor ... those aerodyne plastic things? Wow, just wow.

I'm speaking for me, but .. thinking PackRat was in my thought processes ... we didn't know if YOU made it.... with that 'abundance' of a trainer, to start with, and all~!! Many people would've (and DO!) WALK, at that point. KUDOS that you didn't.

Sheesh, and SMH is all I can say.

Are you home w/the hubby in the interim for the next trainer, then?

DETAILS~!! Not only is the Devil in the details, so is the cake! (Devil's food cake, of course, hahaha!)

Just glad you didn't 'bail.' ..... wow. is. you. ~!!

Haha thanks Anne!!!! To be honest she's pushing 80 years old. After all those mistakes I'm surprised that the company is still keeping her. We had one load on Friday because she had to get a physical done. Yes I'm totally finished with my local training. Will start my last two weeks of otr training tomorrow morning. Thank God above. I should be getting my truck on the 23rd or they will give me a rental to go home for a few days. Hopefully they give me the rental because I will have no way back home from Arkansas to Memphis. Because if they give me a truck,they will give me a load as well. But man this has been a great,crazy few weeks. I made new friends, learned new thing met new people,saw new things,saw,heard,and learned from mistakes. I'm not gonna lie y'all I'm so extremely surprised that I made it this far. I'm very thankful.
