My reasons why the turnover rate for truck drivers is so high!!
2. The job itself
3. Risks out on the road
4. Lack of respect
5. Law Enforcement
6. Dispatchers of the company
7. No gratitude
Reason 1: People itself make it impossible to be a truck driver. They cut you off, honk the horn, have a certain stereotype about a driver, and are plain just nasty to truck drivers.
Reason 2: The job itself is not someone wants to do but sometimes needs to be done. Nobody ever grows up saying I want to be a truck driver, but it’s a job!
Reason 3: Risks on the road are seen every moment of the day but even more when you drive a truck. To name a few are the weather, companies with no signs, rude drivers, people who cut you off, finding no place to park, stop lights that suddenly turn red, hidden signs, and more I can’t even remember right now.
Reason 4: So much about support our troops because they are fighting for our freedom, but what about the drivers in your own land who are that bring what you need to survive, because without trucks the world stops. Where do you think your food comes from a plane, our car, no it comes by truck and no one can ever give credit to those who bring it or even the risk that they take to make sure people survive.
Reason 5: Law Enforcement are the worst of them all. They don’t care about anything else than giving a ticket to a driver because the tickets are worth more money. You see them stop a driver because of speed, but did they ask why they were speeding? Most of the time they are speeding because they are late for a delivery to deliver our necessities, but they don’t care. If they don’t deliver on time that goes on the drivers record. So they have a choice of either
dealing with police officers or dealing with their career.
Reason 6: Dispatchers at the company don’t care about the drivers either and try to force loads without caring for the driver or their needs. They are extremely rude and are just like drivers out on the road. Many times they aren’t understanding and just brush off the driver ultimately getting on the bad side of the driver.
Reason 7: There is no gratitude for what drivers do on a daily basis. Putting everthing together drivers are that move this nation and no one cares and treats them like garbage, so it’s rough and that’s ehy you see drivers the way you do with a face, mad, or upset and sometimes sick of the entire industry, something that I see way too often. So hopefully there can be something do to make these drivers feel like their job is as worthy as a law enforcement.
So next time you see a driver give them a break, they go through alot to where they are at that moment.
