    There's a lot of posts on here, I have admitted my mistake. Don't pick and choose what you want too if you're going to criticize me. Read everything I've posted and you will find you are wrong.

    That last driver was a cleanup,utility route... covering 20 routes / 6 zipcode area

    He would've brought back 50 stops if we didn't meet up to help.

    Yeah, hour to head straight home after that mess. I took his worst area, so they can load up with more the next day.

    Compare to when the boss uses the term "family." It's also funny that the company refers to us as "service providers" -- what an antiseptic word lol.

    Some parts of the country, could be difficult to tell the difference between a "straight truck" and one that is kinda "different?"

    We're "essential service providers"

    I just got warned that we're heading for another spike in volume after the memorial holiday weekend... sigh, thank goodness I'm only a temporary manager

    Ahhh, the only rental straight truck was either a Ford or GMC.

    Your vehicles have that shifter on the column with D N R on the handle? Basically a manual transmission, but with an automatic conversion to it?

    Boywondr The truth never changes.

    You can test it in the AM pretrip but if you pick up more package weight than you deliver you'd better test it throughout the day. It takes experience to know and apply this.

    You know it's always the driver's fault. You get charged and then have to prove your innocence similar to any communist controlled country. The hate for their own employees is a shock to normal people who dont work there.

    Train people correctly, monitor their habits throughout their career in that capacity, and quit blaming the ignorant/uninformed mistakes of employees on the employee who was not trained correctly or comprehensively. It's a corrupt system if the people in control are dishonest in their motives.

    Idk why this thread is so interesting. It's the same old story over and over. I've seen it and so has about everyone else on here. Half hearted supes (30 day...or less...wonders) doing half hearted work while "training" new drivers or any employee.

    If the management wants you as an employee theyll find a way to put you back to work that wont enhance their liability. Otherwise move on knowing this is how it goes here. It's a lifetime of being blamed for things out of your control or scope of knowledge.

    Straight truck. Easy to define.

    It's straight, with a box on the frame rails behind the cab, and not a combination vehicle, so to speak. The box is typically independent from the cab and entered from the back &/or side door(s) if equipped with a side door.

    They can require a cdl license to operate them depending on if they have air brakes and/or revolver 26,000 gvwr.
