I'm completely demoralized, depressed and I'm probably gonna cuss my trainer out tomorrow and who knows maybe ill get fired. I can't deal with this guy hes the biggest ******* I've ever met in my life!!!

I took a wrong turn today and got called a "your just a steering wheel holder this might not be in your blood". Its **** like that all day every day.

The other guy left a week ago. Abandoned load and literally got off the truck he said **** all this.

What ****es me off the most is that the other guy point blank asked him why hes such an ******* and his answer was "I served too long in the military".

I served 6 ****ing god damn years to include a year in combat. I refuse to listen to anyone that uses military service as an excuse for being a complete and total *******!

So if CR England fires me I'll be looking for a job. I live in VA. I'm going to say a prayer tonight that someone hires me if I get fired.

I will never quit. I will never give up. Their gonna be the ones to make me leave.

I emailed the training dept asking for another trainer. So I'm either fired or I'm not. I'll know more later.

As those & many & all have said before me... GRIT IT THE EF OUT.

Get a new trainer.

DON'T jump comp! (Nor rank ?!!) Prayers from OHIO are that you WONT get fired.

I'm just a 20 year trucker's wife; email in my profile.. if you want to hear more.

Dang.. don't get fired. HANG TOUGH.. Proving ground. Repetamos. Dad & Bro were Navy, retired. There IS no quit.

Try to not get fired or quit. Stick it out until you get your CDL. If you have your CDL , stick it out 3 or 4 months. CFI hires many drivers in your position. Your training time to get your CDL won't count towards your experience. With 3 months you will go out with one of our finishers for 21 days. With 4 months or more they may just put you in a truck

Try calmly talking with him. Remind him you are still green. That you are a vet and still learning. This is not the military and you deserve the same respect you give him. That may help.

Some people should not train.

Good luck.

  • 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.

Thank yall both very much.

I had a chance to get some sleep and I've chilled out some. I let him know and I emailed the training coordinator guy about things. I guess I'll hear back Monday. Tried talking to him and all he had to say is that I'm not meant to be a driver. I promptly told him that he has no idea how bad I want this and that I'll be laughing at his ass when I retire.

I have thankfully already tested and passed the CDL test through the CRE school. What I dont know is if they will send my test scores up to VA after I pass this nightmare or not?

I dunno I'll just be glad to get to SLC and figure out getting another trainer.

So it's a personality conflict with your trainer.

What if you are allowed to switch to another trainer that is worse (in your greenhorn status)?

Lukas, PackRat is right.. .what if the next is worse than the first ?!?!? It happens. Story upon story upon story in the diaries section here. Look up the tags for 'Company Trainers' when you have time.

Big Scott is correct, as well!! Not all people who train, are cut out for it! (Sadly, they eke their way into training, for the extra benji's. )

Before you make any 'rash' decisions, please come to these walls and vent .. and ask! There's so many seasoned pro's right up in here, to help. Always.

Wish you the best with CRE. They aren't one of the 'larger' carriers for nothing, ya know ?!?

Peace, man. Best to you, forward!

Hey Lukas,

First, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE! I come from a military family and my friends also.

It's hurtful to read your message. Sure, ex-military can "sound hard" but never disrespectful. Much RESPECT to you for keeping your cool. I might have kicked his a** and took his truck! A bit of advice... Keep your cellphone close and record everything! Maybe the company might want to FIRE him instead and get you a real trainer. You state that his former trainee quit on the spot. That's really sad and say's a lot! Also, how dare you miss a turn on your first time trucking! It's not like you wrecked it!!! LOL!! Is he teaching you anything other than HOW to hold the steering wheel?

Six years and one year combat huh. Well, here's hoping that you will drive a truck! If for some reason it doesn't work out or, you need a break. I work for a really great company in Roanoke, VA. It doesn't pay as much as trucking but it's better than kicking cans... NEVER GIVE UP!
