I similar story about C1 in FT wayne indiana And PAM Transport I went to the school was told I would get 160 hours of training 40 class room 120 range and road then pass cdl test and have a job with pam. I actually had about 20 class room and 30 hours of range and road of which i was behind the wheel on the range for about 3 hours and behind the wheel on the road about 1 1/2 hours the rest of the time we we watching others on range practice . When we actually drove on the road it was on the exact route we would take when being examined for official test. Were Told Iquote " dont tell examiner this was the practice route We are not supposed to train on it" Well fortunately For me I already had some drive experiece and was able to pass the test. Then onto PAM. Called them and set up trainer driver. When he call me to find out where he was to pick me up he replied he wouldn't come to me like he waqs supposed to I would have come to him approx 50 miles from my house. Got through that and met him got in truck to find he was giving someone else a ride by harrisburg PA. that person wasn't allowed to drive the truck because he just Quit and was just catching a ride. So my Trainer driver said i would drive not a problem to me i was behind the wheel after about 30 seconds from the on ramp he decide that he was going to sleep. and if adeer jumps out in front of us while i was driving consider it a dead deer. for the next 4 weeks we wnt from laredo TX to east coast non stop and of couurse i drove the night shift only. being a new driver the most dangerous time to drive is the night time. but he said that was the only time I would drive. before finishing the tour with him relayed some usefull information onto that I should try and get to be a trainer because that is the only trucks that make money because they don't stop. After getting my own truck his staement was true i averaged about 200 week after taxes not enough to feed my family let alone me on the road. The Straw that broke the camels back I was in York PA to drop my load and pick up a empty trailer to find that no empties on site. I had a friend that knew where 2 were i relayed that to my night dispatcher and he sent me a qualcom message to go and get one. about a hour into the he must of grew a brain and found out they would have to pay me 150 miles to do this . he bthen instructed me to go to a truck stop and rack for the night there was one closer. so I did just that went to pilot and went to sllep. When I got up messaged dispatch for location of trailer. they replied none available. So i called on the phone and Spoke to "Christy Tucker" my dispatcher i was then she told me it would be a couple of days to just wait and reset HOS. I informed her that i was only 150 from Home ad would be doing it there she ttried to threaten me with be charged out of way miles. and then I will be making this a permanet Restart and retuning the tractor to the closest terminal she insisted that i bring the truck to arkansas That was happening i returned it to new jersey terminal and video tape were it was and what condition. after all that they had the balls to make a note on My Dac report that i had an icident that required the tractor to be towed Since they couldn't charge me with abandonement. I was fortunate enough to live in an area that has gas wells needing drivers all the time and have secured steady employment.
