Episode 16: Trucking safety and recruiting risk management ft Jon Wildish.
Episode 16: Trucking safety and recruiting risk management ft Jon Wildish. Welcome to Just Truck it.  The truck driving show that takes a behind the scenes view of the trucking industry, and talks about not only what you want to know, but what you need to know to make it.  Episode 16: Trucking safety and recruiting risk management ft Jon Wildish. Today we speak with Jon Wildish the Senior Vice President of Titan Transfer inc. We get an inside look into topics of risk management in the trucking industry. From recruiting drivers to safety, dash cams, and maintenance.  Speaker: Jon Wildish Because your greatest enemy is time. You don't want to feel rushed. And because when you feel rushed, we make mistakes. Doesn't matter if I'm working in the shop or if I'm driving a commercial vehicle. Rushing doesn't help anyone, and we make mistakes when that happens. So if you keep the left door closed and get your miles on it benefits you. And spending a lot of time at truck stop or unauthorized stops or not leaving when you should. That all affects your time. And like I said, that's your greatest enemy. So keep the left door closed and don't get in a hurry.  https://titantransferinc.com/ SUBSCRIBE NOW ►Download or stream the speech everywhere: Website: https://cdlschoolinc.com/just-truck-it/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tncdlschool Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcL6wRt6oXR2Wy_kVj1db_g?sub_confirmation=1 Anchor: https://anchor.fm/JustTruckIt Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3bIRwokMcgomIY8jqLce2f Google Podcasts: https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy82NzQ2ZWZmOC9wb2RjYXN0L3Jzcw== Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/just-truck-it/id1581292291 ►Follow Just Truck it Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcL6wRt6oXR2Wy_kVj1db_g?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tncdlschool Website: https://cdlschoolinc.com/just-truck-it/ Anchor: https://anchor.fm/JustTruckIt Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3bIRwokMcgomIY8jqLce2f Google Podcasts: https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy82NzQ2ZWZmOC9wb2RjYXN0L3Jzcw== Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/just-truck-it/id1581292291 #DriverSafety #TruckingSafety #TruckingRecruiter

Episode 15: From Autonomous Trucks to Driver Pay and tips FT Derek Leathers of Werner. Welcome to Just Truck it.  The truck driving show that takes a behind the scenes view of the trucking industry, and talks about not only what you want to know, but what you need to know to make it.  Episode 15: From Autonomous Trucks to Driver Pay and tips with Derek Leathers. Today we speak with Derek Leathers the President and CEO of Werner Enterprises. We get an inside look into topics inside the state of the trucking industry. From growth and future of trucking like Autonomous Trucks to driver pay and how to have a well paying long career.  Speaker: Derek Leathers You know, in six months, maybe they'll be trucking jobs for quality, professional, dedicated truck drivers who want to do the job Right. But, someone who's jumped around a bunch and not proven themselves, is going to find themselves playing musical chairs maybe without a chair. So you got to be careful with that. In general, I think the economy is going to get through this better than most people think. But I think no matter how you slice it, we're still dropping from 6% GDP growth to something that's going to look a lot more like 2%, which is pretty close to normalized levels.

And nowadays they have battery powered leaf blowers that are super powerful and is the most genius idea ever.

If it's not broke, break it, because anybody that accepts that it's not broken means that they're not willing to look ahead of what the next step is. And that's where I come in and say, OK, this looks good, but it's a foundation. So we start with the basics. Go after the culture, you know, again, a culture that loves what they do. You know, again, like, I've got some of the best managers, recruiters, director's in the industry and they don't only just think, they believe that it's possible.

We also discuss hiring bonuses.  Subscribe to us so you can hear all of our fantastic speakers that are going to join us soon as well. https://youtu.be/1NhdCTKl9lA ►Speaker Dan Rule  I think the biggest obstacle in operations is optics and perception for this entire industry. Retaining good truck drivers is the main challenge for most trucking companies. So for us, it's how do we communicate effectively to somebody in our driver force to know we're working hard for them and supporting them. -Dan Rule   SUBSCRIBE NOW   ►Download or stream the speech everywhere:  Website: https://cdlschoolinc.com/just-truck-it/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tncdlschool Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcL6wRt6oXR2Wy_kVj1db_g?sub_confirmation=1 Anchor: https://anchor.fm/JustTruckIt Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3bIRwokMcgomIY8jqLce2f Google Podcasts: https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy82NzQ2ZWZmOC9wb2RjYXN0L3Jzcw== Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/just-truck-it/id1581292291  ►Follow Just Truck it  Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcL6wRt6oXR2Wy_kVj1db_g?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tncdlschool Website: https://cdlschoolinc.com/just-truck-it/Anchor: https://anchor.fm/JustTruckIt Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3bIRwokMcgomIY8jqLce2f Google Podcasts: https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy82NzQ2ZWZmOC9wb2RjYXN0L3Jzcw== Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/just-truck-it/id1581292291   #truckingoperations #TruckDriver #TractorTrailer #TruckingVideos #trucking #truckinglife

Episode 5 What happens after truck driving school
Episode 5: What happens after truck driving school. Welcome to Just Truck it.  The truck driving show that takes a behind the scenes view of the trucking industry, and talks about not only what you want to know, but what you need to know to make it.   This episode discusses what happens after truck driving school. You got your CDL license and ready for work. What happens in orientation, training, issues, etc...   ►Speaker Shawn Davis Cilla Davis   That's a situation where, jumping ship sometimes in the first six months ain't always a good decision. You're going to find out that they are usually all the same. The same personalities, same type of things that happen, the same type of pay, same type of truck, etc... It's just a just a different sticker on the side, you know. And sometimes it's not what happens, It's how you fix it. So if something was bad like a trainer, its not that it happened, but its how the company fixes it. Give the company an opportunity or chance to make things right. Or all your doing is making your resume look bad by having so many jobs in a short period of time, and that hurts your ability to make more money later. -Shawn Davis   SUBSCRIBE NOW   ►Download or stream the speech everywhere:  Website: https://cdlschoolinc.com/just-truck-it/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tncdlschool Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcL6wRt6oXR2Wy_kVj1db_g?sub_confirmation=1 Anchor: https://anchor.fm/JustTruckIt Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3bIRwokMcgomIY8jqLce2f Google Podcasts: https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy82NzQ2ZWZmOC9wb2RjYXN0L3Jzcw== Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/just-truck-it/id1581292291   ►Follow Just Truck it  Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcL6wRt6oXR2Wy_kVj1db_g?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tncdlschool Website: https://cdlschoolinc.com/just-truck-it/Anchor: https://anchor.fm/JustTruckIt Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3bIRwokMcgomIY8jqLce2f Google Podcasts: https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy82NzQ2ZWZmOC9wb2RjYXN0L3Jzcw== Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/just-truck-it/id1581292291    TikTok: @TnCDLschool   #truckdrivingschool #TruckDriver #TractorTrailer #TruckingVideos #trucking #truckinglife

Welcome to Just Truck it.  The truck driving show that takes a behind the scenes view of the trucking industry, and talks about not only what you want to know, but what you need to know to make it.  Episode 3: Why and How to be a truck driver. This episode covers why someone would want to be a truck driver, and what you have to do to be a truck driver. We also talk about different types of trucking positions, Dot Physicals, drug screens, back ground and MVR reports, and tips/tricks. Yeah, it's such a great career and we love it so much, the trucking industry. So how can we give back? And that's by you helping you get there as well. So comment below, and let us know if you have any questions that we haven't answered. I know it's a brand new field and so many of you just don't know what to do next.

And in the last 12 months, there has been a 30 to 35 percent increase in pay across the board in the last 12 months in the trucking industry, which is a bigger increase than the last 12 years. The ability to go out there and make a good living for the past 12 years has been good in the industry, as I've done it. However, right now, it's even more easier. The money that, a student can make of fresh out of school is more than I was making with experience, 10 years ago. -Shawn Davis ►Follow Just Truck it Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcL6wRt6oXR2Wy_kVj1db_g?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tncdlschool Website: https://cdlschoolinc.com/just-truck-it/ Anchor: https://anchor.fm/JustTruckIt Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3bIRwokMcgomIY8jqLce2f Google Podcasts: https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy82NzQ2ZWZmOC9wb2RjYXN0L3Jzcw== Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/just-truck-it/id1581292291

Just Truck It! Episode 2: Motivation, Confidence, Effort, & Goals with Dr. Rhadi Ferguson
Welcome to Just Truck it.  The truck driving show that takes a behind the scenes view of the trucking industry, and talks about not only what you want to know, but what you need to know to make it.  We see people everyday going through issues mentally, self-doubt, over-thinking, nerves, stress, and pressure. These issues hold you back from your vision board and goals. So what we want to do is spend some time today talking about mental toughness, motivation, confidence, effort, & Goals. We're going to speak with a motivational speaker. He's a former Olympian, Four time national Judo champion, has a Ph.D. in education, Co-owner of SwitchOn Coaching,  Dr. Rhadi Ferguson.

Here's the issue with that. Your kids are getting older. Whatever picture you have on there is no longer the vision.That's what already happened. You have to create a vision of what you want your family to look like and what do you want it to be. So it's cool to have pictures as reminders, but that's not your vision board. Yeah, that is a reminder. I'm not saying remove that. That's great, but you need something else to nourish the vision. You don't work for the purpose to just keep working. You work for the purpose of retiring. So cut out that picture of the condo in Miami and put it in your car, put it in your truck and look at it. Look at the vacation spot that you want to go and you're going to get some time. I'll look at the colleges that you elect to send your child to. That's why you do what you do.  -Dr. Ferguson ►Follow Just Truck it Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcL6wRt6oXR2Wy_kVj1db_g Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tncdlschool Anchor: https://anchor.fm/JustTruckIt Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3bIRwokMcgomIY8jqLce2f Google Podcasts: https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy82NzQ2ZWZmOC9wb2RjYXN0L3Jzcw== ►Recommended Reading List: Winning by Tim Grover Relentless by Tim Grover Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman Grit by Angela Duckworth
