A typical day at work: Arrive uninformed that they have changed your job and you are doing something completely different than what you applied for. Simply because they fired someone else.
Next, sit back and enjoy being hollared at by the drivers, their customer which is a freight broker who provides your drivers with low miles, and live load and live unloads so they never make any money. Leaves your driver hanging with no back up load after a delivery. Blames you for the fact they have no freight to give him. Be prepared to be yelled at and insulted by their freight broker/customer for attending a safety meeting. And it's all your fault since you were magically elected to be a dispatcher, with no experience dispatching. Your drivers will be yelling at you about the miles and if they are a solo driver, they will get a bad truck, because all the good trucks are held for teams. Half of the fleet you are assigned to will be ok drivers and then there are the drivers who don't really want to work, and that will also be your fault on both the driver's side and the customer's side.
Make sure you get a pay stub because you will find out that some deductions came through such as insurance you did not sign up for (because you're already covered by your spouse) and you will never get a card or proof of coverage until you get your year-end taxes. They also don't pay you for holidays if they don't have to and will look for loopholes.
