I am a brand new member of the Brown Cafe but have visited this site many times over the last couple years. I especially like the thread Ask a Feeder Driver......since I qualified as a feeder driver and it has helped me a lot. we have over 100 feeder drivers at our hub and only a couple gals. I have noticed that the gals don't get very much respect from the other drivers and especially from management. I even had my trainer tell me he didn't think women should be feeder drivers in the first place. i let that comment slide but I noticed that seems to be the general attitude. I know as a female I am going to have to work harder, hustle more, don't complain, and let my work stand for itself. I was wondering if there are any other women feeder drivers here who have encountered these same problems when they were starting out and how they handled it. will also love to hear from the guys too on how I can integrate myself successfully into the feeder department. However, I have learned from researching here that there are some guys on the Brown Cafe that really dislike the female members. Maybe that's why more women do not join. Ever think of that? Please guys, be nice. If you are not nice , I won't be nice either. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
