My trainer has been drinking and parking at strip clubs and casinos. How would I report this without her knowing it’s me reporting. I refuse to report any without it being anonymous.

Call the company's 800 number or the number that pops up on Google and report the behavior to whoever answers the phone using the truck number.

Her? That seems odd to me. Having a drink on a 10 hour break isn't against rules if she's not doing it in the truck. Is she getting drunk or just enjoying a drink with dinner? There is a difference.

You're right, but what might be legal, could very well be against the employer's policies. That is probably the issue here.

It's also something that is making this trainee very uncomfortable. That, in itself, is worth having a discussion with someone in authority over the trainers.

That "trainer" isn't showing a very professional way of doing her job with a trainee sheesh. Even with dinner or a meal they shouldn't even risk having ANY kind of "drink"

While at CRST, seen few things similar. At their Iowa terminal/school, we happened to be there by chance. I met our DM since we happened to be there.It was during the winter, so there was snow everywhere. Along the walkway from the parking lot to the school, someone "planted" a BIG bottle of vodka, in the snow !

Another time at a truck stop, 2 CRST african female drivers, were standing by their truck, smoking a big fat doobie (blunt)! My co-driver called it into safety....We later "heard" thru the grapevine, they were brought into a terminal. And there was an ounce of weed in their truck, they were terminated on the spot of course.

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.


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.
