CFI...No way I'll go back Joplin Missouri
I worked for CFI back in 2000 and will never go back. Seems you have to kiss dispatchers a** to get long runs. Home time is a joke. I was headed for Joplin with a load of beer and was told to re-power as I should be out of time 60 miles away. Had to drop trailer in the drop yard (forget the name of the little town where they have a motel for showers) in Ill. Sat there two days. Maybe if I did noit have to wait all night and slide axles to get legal I would have had plenty of time. They did not know what my log book said, how do they think I was out of time? Guess the Qual com is a tattly tail!
on anoter load after having bad load after bad load, I drove most of the night to get to Houston. Got up at 5 AM to get unloaded. I was #2 on the board. At noon I was #1 on the board. At 10 PM when I'm going to bed I get a dispatch to go to San Antonio and meet a drive and take his load to Laredo. Called Dispatch and said that I;ve been up all day since 5 AM and now going to bed. They threated to fire me but I was one step ahead of them as I talked to Glenn Brown and had his home phone to cal day or night if I continue to get screwed. I made the phone call and mr. brown acted on it. Since I refused the load they went ahead and gave it to another driver. Mr Brown told the night dispatcher who just came on duty to find me a load. That disopatcher told him there was a load that was ready the day before going to Nogales. Mr. Brown wanted to know why I was not given that load early in the day. The night dispatcher had no idea but I had my choick of two loads out of there 1 to Nogales and one to MN. No guess for me. I live in Sierra Vista. 70 miles from Nogales.
Mr Brown was a man of action, olther than that it is not worth the fight!
