    This is suppose to be where they are taking applications (Terminal's ). Not all terminals on the lists. With this nanny-cam rollout it might be more in couple of weeks.

    Saia usually post jobs ( daily / weekly ) on Indeed.com

    That's exactly what it is!

    "We have nothing to fear but fear itself!

    Of course I cant prove that but it's pretty darn obvious. I never gave it a thought and never figured it would stand in the way of getting a new job but it's time smell the coffee. It is what it is.
    Let me say this about the "UNION" company I currently work for, If you were lucky enough to get in and work for this company when it was family owned , you were the best of the best. No other "UNION" LTL carrier operated in the low 80's.
    Unfortunately it has become a greedy corporate machine!
    As history repeats itself, it's just like every great empire has its rise and fall.....

    Have you called the facility to maybe get your name in their head? Sometimes applications get overlooked. Maybe you're reading too much into this.

    If you click on the link then search Careers by location in NJ or Pa it shows zero jobs for the locations. There were jobs listed so they must have filled them already( P&D, Line Haul, Dock and Supv were there).

    Can't discriminate against your age if you are 40 or over

    I would love to think I am reading too much into it but I come to find out other drivers from my terminal have applied a couple months ago and no one had an interview or phone call while drivers from other companies were interviewed even though they submitted their application weeks after we did.

    Legally no but I've seen it happen. They don't have to give that reason but I've known it to be the case before with another company.

    If they're moving up there, then they are going to get A LOT of those guys affiliated with the "bad word". So I think they may need to get over themselves in that aspect.

    Do it the old fashioned way.. Walk in and introduce yourself. If they're offering us a $7500.00 bonus to transfer up there, they can't have all the positions filled

    Know an ex co worker who is a saia linehaul driver from Florida he was looking at a transfer to Harrisburg and would have been the number one man but declined the transfer because he said the company is not the same as the one down south, HMMMM Very Interesting!

    He came up to talk with the terminal manager on a interview and a look around didn't care for the manager, what else do you need to know?

    He's probably referring to the difference between the South and the existing northern regions. When I was a system driver (extra board) I got to see the differences for myself. It's a totally different company down south. Up here in the Chicago and Cincinnati regions it's just another screwed up LTL company.

    Hmmm, reminiscent of a chat with a TM at St. Johnsbury.
