That's the biggest problem with Daniel. When he gets into one of our discussions he turns it inside out so that it's all about him. That doesn't serve our purposes of being helpful to new drivers at all.

I'm curious, was Daniel a lawyer in a former life?

No problem lol all of the side comedy put me in a better mood to find another job. I’ve been honest on my applications since the one I put in with CFI. More info on that I won’t be able to work for them for awhile because England told me that I didn’t need to put the accidents down on my application for new jobs because they were small incidents. Well lesson learned on that well just say lol. But I’ve had a few hit backs mostly from places like western express,covenant transportation,swift,knight etc. I’ve just been taking the honest route as I was advised to do and told the whole truth without my personal feelings being involved and I’ve had it rewarded with some open ears in return so fingers are crossed.

With how quick Daniel was to provide sources for his argument on the thread regarding the new political landscape affecting oil i figured he'd have given me a source to backup his argument. This guy reminds me of Professor X that did the Roehl diary. Seems to have it all figured out but in the end is absolutely clueless. Read what you're signing your name to and you'd completely understand what you're agreeing to.

Eric have you used this link to Apply For Truck Driving Jobs? Fill out one application and it'll be sent to numerous companies saving you. I'm sorry this thread got derailed but please keep us updated on where you're able to get another opportunity.

Western Express will probably take you, be prepared to be on a trainers truck for 250+ hours though

Hi all, I am a new member to the forum. I am in complete agreement with Old School. I was a Independent Contractor and Driver Trainer with England. If all is as Eric S. stated, England simply "cut their losses."

Here's the real kicker...

I'd be willing to bet if he had taken the prudent path of being an employee (company driver) they would have had him come to Salt Lake City for some additional training and kept him on as an employee. If he showed a willingness to accept his responsibility and learn from the incidents, I think he'd have a shot at remaining a company driver. As a lease operator, he isn't going to get that type consideration. They cut their losses and decided to move on.

Howdy, Jim. Nice to 'meet' you! I read your bio . . . wow! You've been out 'tooling around' a long time; like my hubby! Welcome to TT, glad to have you! (I'm just the resident 'cheerleader,' haha!)

ps: Again, to the O/P . . . Dutch Maid is another possibility.

Arguing about England is something we can do on another post because that’s not what I initially started this for. But I will say this. The amount of leeway you have in situations depends entirely on who your dm is and How much you are or aren’t cool with your higher ups. You may agree or disagree but it is what it is. Move on,learn,grow and improve

Dm:

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.
