I always appreciate the things and information people send me. You can send all things here and I answer all emails. They are how this channel gets ideas and information.
An astute viewer sent in a tip about a trucking company and asked me to check it out. I don't think it makes a crap company but it is interesting to see what they do make.
I look at many things for a company, one of which is the SAFER WEB system of the FMCSA. You should as well. It can give an interesting insight into a company, like if they have insurance and if their operating authority has been revoked.
You can search by name and then click on licensing and insurance. Click on report and you can view it. It can be very interesting information.
I also recommend you check out a company's FB page if they have one. Most probably do. Again, this company has mostly (except 1) positive comments. Is that strange? I think so. There are always disgruntled drivers to write on your page. I mention that drivers should get paid for all their time and I get many thumbs down so I have to think one negative comment is not true. The page owner can delete comments, keep this in mind.
Its just one of the ways you should be checking out a company before you work there. Kind of behind the scenes sleuth work.
See you on the road!
Hi! Welcome. I'm Mark and I've been a professional truck driver for over 33 years, the last 19 years at the same company. It is time that drivers got paid for every minute that we work and we are treated like the licensed professionals we are.
