Im not trying to make this TR.com but I got tired of spending 2-3 days not driving looking for empties, sliding pay scales, being in the shop majority of the time for crappy trailer and crappy miles. I was very patient with this place. A load i took to atlanta from Illinois i drove 665 miles i shutdown at 6pm Sunday and then they told me Sunday was my first day of hometime. mcdvoice There was no communication or appreciation for the drivers in the offices.

I thought you've only been driving for two weeks with them. Something you will find, every company will have issues from time to time. Two weeks isn't enough time to know anything about them. As a recommendation, stay with the new company for a while. Dont bail everytime something goes wrong. Do that too much and nobody will hire you for fear you'll do the same with them. That being said good luck with the new company.

They ain't lyin' over there at FM!

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Well i shut down at the terminal in OKC. They had to make some repairs to the truck so the next morning around 1100 i started feeling like crap so i used one of the loaner car to the er. They did both a covid test and flu test. After stabbing the back of my eye they diagnosed me with pneumonia in both lungs and covid oh and type 2 diabetes. Now i al just resting at the hotel and changing my diet.

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.
