TwoSides, I'm confident I've gathered your contact info, but before I send you mine, please verify these two facts.

Your first name consists of three letters ending with an i, and both your home phone and cell phone numbers end with a zero.

I'm sorry to bother you with this. I just like to be careful on the internet.

No bother at all, I'm the same way lol. Yes to both questions.

Please tell me you got the info from Brett and it's not floating around on the internet lol

Absolutely Gtown, not saying he should quite, I say he should be hell bent on making it a great adventure like Dale (oldschool) has, matter in fact reading Dales imputs on here about Knight, makes me think Knight is great! Im just saying, that from what I have reviewed of Melton and what drivers are telling us new recruits this company is excellent and so if he does decide in the direction of moving to a different company then I would encourage him to look at Melton Truck Lines. I just went through their securement, tarping and orientation training and it was real thorough. Anyhow, I am done bringing past to the present and I am just bragging on the company that I feel blessed to be a part of because there is no way in hell or Heaven that I should have been able to make it to this company with my trucking history and look at what the Lord has done. Yeah my attitude can use adjusting and I may have some disagreements with some here, but you cannot deny that there was a supernatural hand in this employment process. I made a diary and I promise you that it said nothing of afore employments in the trucking history other than a quick note without naming names. Take a look and comment, I would definitely appreciate it!

Victor... IMO this is not the time to encourage TwoSides to jump ship.

I honestly hope he can work it out at Knight. First group through new training can make a positive impact on their company’s future, becoming part of the solution and not exacerbating the problem. TwoSides is smart enough to get through this and likely benefit greatly as a result.

Mikey I personally apologize for my blaming other companies and shifting the blame to those who were my trainers. Thats very much failure up ahead talk. Time for me to take responsibility and I am working hard now to admit when I was or am wrong or irresponsible. Again I am sorry.

I may be wrong, maybe I was letting frustration with another poster get in the way.

If I am wrong then prove me to be wrong by overcoming the adversity with your current employer by sticking with them and succeeding. Become a top tier driver.

Your training from them may not be the best but between what you have gotten and all of the tools and people at your disposal you have everything needed to succeed. Id love nothing more than for you to prove me wrong. Do that and ill admit I was wrong about you...and apologize to you.

Thats the best I can do.

That has nothing to do with me.....

If your wrong?? Prove to you? 🤣

Now you say my training might not be the best lol. And what have I gotten from them training wise exactly?? According to you, 12hrs of flatbed training is enough for an inexperienced rookie driver to succeed.

I don't prove anything to anyone but myself. Are you really that arrogant to think I need an apology from you? If you feel the need not to apologize that's fine, don't. Your a grown man, do as you please. I see who you are Mikey, I don't need anything from you.

I can almost guarantee if G-town and Turtle didn't post their opinions you wouldn't have these kind words to say lol. Stop patronizing me sir.

Have a nice day and stay safe out there.

Victor... can we move on here? The obsessive apologies and wordy explanations aren’t necessary.

Look forward and adjust accordingly. This is it. You want to free from moderation than conduct your business on here professionally and rationally.

Enough.

Sure I can do that, I just felt that I needed to apologize for basically my not taking my own responsibility. Me apologizing was basically trying to get right with you all. I wouldnt mind you deleting that whole thread I made celebrating getting hired by Melton because i could improve it by not having a rehash of past experiences.

Lol yea it did. Spoke with Payroll earlier and found out when the pay period ends. They said I have to talk to my TM to get the per diem removed from my pay. They also said my CPM is between 42-47. My DM said he would put the breakdown pay from 2 weeks ago in this check, that he forgot to put the tarp pay in and the stop pay wasn't actually another stop to be classified as stop pay.....

Also received a phone call from safety today regarding my email I sent about my training. They asked for my opinion and what needs to get better. They then said they would contact my TM. They did because 30min later he called and said he would get me a driver to follow for a week like I was promised........

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.

Per Diem:

Getting paid per diem means getting a portion of your salary paid to you without taxes taken out. It's technically classified as a meal and expense reimbursement.

Truck drivers and others who travel for a living get large tax deductions for meal expenses. The Government set up per diem pay as a way to reimburse some of the taxes you pay with each paycheck instead of making you wait until tax filing season.

Getting per diem pay means a driver will get a larger paycheck each week but a smaller tax return at tax time.

Awesome, 2Sides..

Just SUPER glad to hear, man. Keep us apprised, if you can! I figured it was something like that.. or training pay downgrade; glad THAT wasn't the issue, LoL! IDK if you guys have TransFlow .. but Tom used to mess it up, ALL the time. Often, isn't even a fair statement. Kids, these days! (aka; him! Still!)

Peace & best to ya, here on!
