I had a same direction side swipe with no injuries and no citations, a no-fault accident.
I was allowed to 'complete' my training hours and set for the road and backing evaluation. Problem is, I was trained in a 10-speed international for 6 weeks. For the eval i was put into an 8-speed Freightliner. The shift patterns are reversed. So, I failed my shifting eval. Next, i bumped a curb during road eval which is an auto fail.
The next part is the Backing in Confined space eval. My trainer in 6-weeks only let me do 5 or 6 backing maneuvers. It took me an hour to get that *** trailer into the spot. Auto Fail again. Why he put me through that when had already failed is beyond me. They sent me home for the weekend and I had to call them to find out my disposition. Termination. They had me sign no paperwork, did not email me any paperwork stating that I had been termed. It was with my training coordinator over the phone.
I am trying to find out where i can get a copy of the contract, because I was told by another trucking company that I am still under the work contract to them.
and Like another gentle man posted on here, it was only a few hours before Eagle Financial called me about making payments to that contract.
So here I am, Stuck, probably under a dead contract and not trained to continue my quest with my husband in the trucking industry.
His story is just as bad as mine. Another post. :(
Reason of review: They lied.
Monetary Loss: $4995.
Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.
I didn't like: Lies and misrepresentation.
