One of my viewers put me in touch with a recruiter at their company. The recruiter is all like "we would love to have you put out info about us. What would you like to know?" So, I sent over a bunch of questions about the place. Typical stuff about pay and bonuses plus detention, layover, cameras in the truck, non-compete, contract length and some other stuff. Questions every person should ask before they start at a company. Anyway, I hear back today that they are not interested in answering my questions and to have a nice day. Now, I am not surprised by this but I have emailed them asking them to reconsider and wondering why they won't answer a question about how much they pay or what their idle policy might be. Anyway, when I hear back from them I will let you know who it is. I don't want to call them out for not answering until I hear from them about reconsideration.
It is amazing to me that these companies complain they can't get drivers then they don't want to answer questions. We will see what they say. If I don't hear back by next blog we have our answer. Oh, they did say "We are going to put your channel on our watch list". Is that a threat or do they love the channel? Who knows.
See you on the road!
