    These people that say they are in management and will answer your questions NEVER last.

    Is XPO that good at policing these boards?

    Unless they disclose who they are and a location, no way for the company to find out on TB.

    This is the reason I like these boards. A person gets themselves in trouble with the company by giving to much info.

    Okay. Desperation time. The need for drivers has reached critical. Shinny new videos bragging about XPO CDL schools.

    By the time you are done ( getting your CDL ) you will have 2000 - 3000 miles of driving. Did I hear that right? For LTL?

    That mileage is low. The last driver we had go through the school spent one week on LH and one week in the city. Even on our shortest LH run that still 1000 mile in a week plus the city week and all the time they will be driving at the school. I know at my barn we send them on the longest city runs and the 385 mile LH run.
    I would like to know who trained them though I taught him more in 1hr of jockeying then he learned in a whole day of backing.

    on that note can we stop buying automatic transmissions. The only trucks I see in the last year at our shop that were totaled were the new trucks

    I love my automatic. Like everything else in life you have to adjust.

    I have had an automatic for going on four years. ( I've had the Cascadia and a city automatic - very different from one another )

    The worse part is when you have to drive a tractor that's NOT an automatic. Pushing that clutch in is like shoving a boulder with your foot. I thought my leg was going to fall off.

    Dockworkers that have went through the program have went and trained during the day and still worked outbound at night. There was no way mathematically that they could have put in a those type of miles PLUS the school was always during the day - no linehaul running.

    It would be interesting to know which school that was. There are two programs for the Driving schools, a 9-wk course and a 12-wk course. In both of those classes, the drivers get a full week running LH and at least one full week running in the city. Yes, classroom or driving training during the day and then they are on our OB dock. When they are running LH or in the city, they do not have classroom work on those days.

    I could not disagree more. More generational than racial.
