Don't worry about it EWC. I've got a rough patch to go through, because my MVR is a little messed up. But I've got 2 tickets from 05(both in the car, before I started driving trucks) that drop off during February, so all I have to do is get through til then.
After that, my MVR will look a lot better, and my 2 1/2 years of experience will make me an attractive hire for most companies.
The truth is, I was waiting for them to drop before leaving the company anyways. I was getting fed up with the lousy treatment from management.
In fact, they just fired our shop manager for going over the budget. This after he cut downtimes for in-house repairs IN HALF. I mean, these guys aren't geniuses(7 tries and my windshield washers still didn't work right
) but Steve had improved that shop a ton.
Back when Donny ran it, it was nothing but a losing proposition to have your truck brought in for repairs. You'd be down for at least a full day, even for minor sh*t.
And frankly, unless things really turn up, their flatbed side is going to go under. BST used to be TimberTech'* primary shipper, now they're doing less than a third of TT'* loads. And TT is still their only major account. If they had kept up, bought more trucks, hired more drivers, the flatbed division could have doubled in size, and still been running their a$$es off. Talk about missing an opportunity.
