So last week I had to change sleep schedules a few times because of the timing of the loads. I ended up having a 10hr break and was able to grab a full nights sleep but then a half hour into my drive I was told to take another 10hr break. Of course I couldn’t sleep again so soon so when that ended and my dispatcher sent me out with a new load I was dead tired a few hours into the route. I pulled into the next stop and called in to let them know I... see more

1- Driving under bridges that are too low
Just because you THINK you can make it doesn’t mean you can! Read the clearance signs people! I have seen guys take out the tops of their trucks before. What a mess.

2- Skipping your walk around
Don’t get lazy! Check your damn tire pressure and your lines. PERIOD.

3-... see more

I'm an IT professional by trade. I left my last job due to a military move. I couldn't find work in the new location because I didn't fit the demographic (not a local, and too qualified). I decided I'd be a stay at home mom and focus on my college studies instead. Three years later, we are back in the US, and I'm having a really hard time finding employment. I've applied to lots of opportunities, even entry level ones - and no luck so far. It... see more
