    The raise will be a going away present to stabilize the work force during the sale of the company. Whoever buys us can then sell off the LTL or cut compensation if they want. We talk about it all the time. One day we are gonna come to work and there will be somebody at the gate with a desk and a bunch of applications.

    Stop being so narrow minded. If I was gonna ask him anything it would be, when do you believe they will finalize the sale ?

    Why would you ever expect a straight answer from a member of management ? Whatever you ask that guy, he won’t know anything about it. He could care less what it takes to do the job. All we knows is what it costs and how long you are taking to do it and that he wants to reduce both of those as far as possible.

    I found out Brooks was at my place yesterday. When I saw all the reigons SCM’s I figured they were having a pow wow with the new RM. Glad he wanted to have a little round table or town hall type thing with ALL classes of employees. Nothing new.

    Not the case here. I don’t see a lot of hiring around here. But a lot of us are looking.

    I'm in the Boston region. I'm actively working on an escape plan to an entirely different industry. Current efforts will either pay off in a month or two or not, then plan B. If I leave it won't be to another LTL company, this sector is insanity now.

    The race to the bottom is having it effect on the attractiveness of this industry. CCX use to hold the industry standard now with Xpo we’re heading to the opposite. It’s difficult for the people in flyover terminals to understand because their living cost are lower.
