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.

#1 UPDATE Employee

What truck # was your trainers?

AUTHOR: PAM Driver - ()

I've been with PAM for almost 6 years and the only time I have had a paycheck less than $500 was a short week due to home time.  Yes, I've had to deal with idiot 2nd/3rd shift and weekend DMs, but in the long run I am glad I'm employed.  I have averaged gross pay for the year about $41,000 starting @ 33 cpm in 2007 and getting regular raises every 6 months.

I don't know the DM Christy you were talking about, but she is not the rule, she's the exception.  As for the line, no empties available you'll have to sit for 2 days to reset yor HOS, that's a new one--haven't heard hat one before.  Also I don't nderstnd how anyone in Tontitown can say no empties available since PAM just purchased almost 1000 brand new Great Dane trailers in the last 9 months.

Your story about C-1 seems common though.  All I here fom drivers is that they teach you just enough to pass CDL road test, then you have 2 weeks with PAM trainer before you're assigned a truck.

AUTHOR: Eric - (U.S.A.)

First of all if you are going to file such a lengthy report at liest use proper English. Hooked On Phonics would make a great start! Just so everyone knows..EVERY TRUCKING COMPANY that i have ever worked for has had issues. Its just a matter of which ones you can stand and which ones you cant. They all lie..and for the record so do the drivers. If you think bashing them here will solve the problem you are kidding yourself. There are people standing in line for your job as bad as you might say it is. I started driving in 1982 and the pay was .25 cents a mile and today there are still some companies that pay close to that. Why? Because for everyone out there that has no job skills and they find out that they can get in the trucking industry for the drop of a hat and drive for .25 cents a mile, there is someone out there desperate for work that they will do it for .24 cents per mile. As for dispatchers most of them have never driven a truck or even seen the inside of one. They are usually people that couldnt make it on the police force so the next best thing was to be a trucking dipatcher so they can bully you over the phone. Want a REAL job? Go to work at McDonalds for 40 hours a week. Then take your Pam paycheck and divide the amount of hours you were physicaly logged into the truck (only leave out OFF DUTY TIME) and you will find McDonalds paid you more per hour than Pam did.
