Some? Just some look and act like big foots? Estes is reaping what it sowed. You aren't gonna like this chicken hawk but it must be said. This company has been around a long time. It has a reputation among drivers who have been around a while for being a starter job. Why you ask? Good question chicken hawk. Bunk rooms, lower pay, dispatchers straight outta lock up, the worst trucks, yards that had moon craters, if you didn't run illegal you wasn't gettin' miles, waiting and waiting and no pay, hotels that made the truck a nice option, district managers that are as cold as ice and will smack you down quick with the good ole boy club. you just had to be here to believe it. Most of it is still around, just not as obvious. Well you see, after time this has a effect on who Estes is able to hire. Estes would get good drivers and they would work for a while and flee this place and tell everybody about it. The vagabonds stayed. Vagabonds piled up to where we are now. We got vagabonds and nepotism that stinks to to high heavens.
Estes seems to wanna turn over a new leaf, I hope they do. I come in every day in uniform clean and shaved smelling good and smilin'. I pray to the Lord above to keep us safe, so we can go home and love on our family and friends. You can call me all the names you want, tell me to leave or whatever you bang your high chair with, ain't gonna change the facts or the truth that I just schooled you with.
Remember what I told ya the next time you see that vagabond walking across the the yard going into the drivers room to stink up the place with his breath and foul language. Estes has been breeding this kind of environment for decades. Most of the good ones moved on.
Don't hate on me, I'm prayin' that it changes so we can keep drivers. I'm puttin' in the effort for a better place. I try to obey God and treat others the way that I would want to be treated.
Have a good Lord's day.
