Wouldn't recommend to my worst enemy
Driver (Former Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – September 17, 2016
I was hired at the Chattanooga, TN terminal August 2016 after 2 years OTR with another company. They told me training would be from 4-6 weeks. I made plenty progress despite the fact that I felt poorly trained. For example, my trainer would just do the loading and unloading without baby stepping me through the process or even talking to me period, so therefore if I didn't ask questions I wouldn't know anything. Once I started to catch on and do the job myself, he made me feel like I was being rushed. He stood over my shoulder every second which is annoying. He also did 95% of the driving. But eventually I still learned a lot, I got evaluated and carded at 3 facilities successfully. At the end of my fifth week, I got evaluated by another trainer (we did 1 load). So I thought I was good and was about to get assigned a truck. The next day the manager sat me down and terminated me. Said I wasn't "a fit for the company". Which I believe is not a logical reason. I tried not to pull a "because I'm black" card, but if I'm going to work everyday on time and making progress, told that I'm making progress weekly, conducting myself professionally and well groomed, then I don't understand the problem. And even if they felt that I wasn't ready then just give me another week or 2 of training! Now I'm back to square 1 unemployed with bills and a newborn.
Hired easily and quickly because the turnover rate is horrible
