I love it....Just trying to relocate- locally without OTR AGAIN
Driver Intermodal (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 10, 2016
I was pulling intermodal containers from WI to IL, drop and hook sometimes it may be a few live loads/unloads.. I've learned how to maneuver a 53" trailer hoe to post and pre-trip a vehicle in the proper manner. How to operate the QUALCOMM which was rather easy. Management was great at times, I conversed with fellow drivers a lot by giving and receiving pointers to better myself or to make another persons job easier. The hardest part of the job was settling for less, I enjoy to work but dispatch felt as if 3 loads a day was good enough for all drivers.Not I, my drive is different give me more I have a family to support I know what I'm capable of completing I also feel as if I've proved it. I've already completed OTR
in Wisconsin during my first 6 months driving now attempting to relocation to another state and the OTR completed is not being honored to transfer (Tennessee). I've been told I'd have to complete OTR again before local is an option. It's contingent on seniority as well. Overall a good company that offers advancement if you're willing to work.
I've learned alot I wouldnt change the experience for nothing, fellow drivers
I already did my over the road, and the memphis intermodal wouldn't accept me on as local for relocation, healthcare, how they cheated us out of bonuses and dispatch
