My experience, they do their best when it comes to favoritism, I spent countless hours working off duty to fix their mistakes, sleeping in pull offs, ramps, shippers, receivers ect. Or sitting 18 hours between loads, they cost me, I figure 1000's of dollars. Swift was actually the only company I could get 2800 mile loads, then got paid while sleeping for detention pay while bumped to the dock.
Sitting 18 hours! That’s ridiculous never waited more than 2 for a dispatch.

Just think how many hours they spend fixing driver's mistakes.
That is true, I was at the terminal, they take a load from me I had for 10 hours, give me one 740 miles away, due in 13 hours, come to find out the driver had that load for 4 days of home time, called dispatch 5 minutes prior saying they can't do the load. Well I got it there on time, had to use off duty driving, but got it there in time.

So your an idiot that let a guy at a desk run his life on the road? I have never nor will I ever sleep on a ramp. Or a turn out on a highway.
Never a late load was always my motto, drive 10:59 hrs, 10:00 break then 10:59 driving :) 30 minute break during fueling. 80k first year baby

That’s sad I make more money than you advertised making and I don’t have to drive that hard for it. Sounds like you’re doing something wrong.

EXACTLY!!!! I started at swift, my first week with trainer, we hit 7 casino's all over America, no lie. I spent my first 14 paid on duty hours sitting in the truck at a Hollywood casino :) what they say about swift training is not a lie.

I don't drive like that any more, I was a super trucker to show them I deserved 2800 mile loads from pa to ca.

I learned what not to do before even getting a cdl by watching these type of videos.

I couldn't grab phone fast enough to get a better overview pic. This maroon is lined up directly behind the first fuel island. I'm in the entrance drive. In the idiots defense, he did park where the red painted curb stopped, but how the hell does anyone think this is okay?

You posted that at 1:pM yesterday, so it's possible he arrived at 3-4 AM when the place was packed, and that's his Invent-A-Spot. But everyone in the normal spots, who had obviously arrived before he did, has left already, leaving him looking like a jackass.

When forced into a situation like that. Set an alarm get up and move to a spot. I wish I could figure out how to operate overnight. Less dumb ****s on the road.

It's damn near impossible in your line of work unless you get a constant stream of coast to coast loads. So many shippers and receivers working on bankers' hours as you well know.

Well obviously. But how much of an idiot do you have to be think crosswise less than 30 feet from the driveway is acceptable even as an invent-a-spot?
