Any comments on which is the better/best company to work for? My guy is a newbie that just got released on his own a few weeks ago. He is doing fine, but there seems to be a lot of no money/downtime BS from the place he is at. The promises of making some change seems to be just that -- change!

He is frustrated, I am frustrated, my son who is doing the same thing, is frustrated. Is this going to get better because I am trying to be the positive one here, but they are wearing me thin listening to the antics of a company that obviously doesn't care. Thanks!

Is this a company that he went thru their school to get his cdl ??? if so....hate to say it,but his options are severely limited....but if he doesn't owe them for schooling...he should be applying at ALL other companies...he will simply tell the other companies that where he is at appears to not be a good fit, since he wants to roll...... Keep us posted, we will help all we can...
