    Well, sure. A lot easier to be a mgr if you don't have to manage people or equipment.

    Our jacks are sent to the shop for repair when they get worn, so that's not really a concern

    Then why are they "junk"? If we send one out for repair it gets new wheels and even a pump if needed. Not trying to be a jerk, I just don't understand what the difference is. I mainly don't think it's the drivers who should bear the cost burden. I don't know if R&L makes up the compensation in other ways either. Maybe your insurance is cheaper or 401k is higher match is higher

    It's $5 a week big deal and it's a tax write-off.besides do mechanics share tools ? No they spend thousands on thier own tools.i would rather have a jack that I know is going to work everyday day.dont make this out like you have to take out a second mortgage to get one

    Well like I said, in California you dont have to buy your jack, and the one they get you is yours only, it’s not a community jack, we lock them up every night with our own locks. Best of both worlds.

    I don’t wanna use some POS that some stupid mother ****er broke the day before and didn’t tell nobody. R+L only has that problem with trucks, not pallet jacks.

    I've worked for two LTL's and at both the company provided me a new, assigned pallet jack that I lock up with my personal lock. I'm glad you all don't mind doing it, I just personally find it ridiculous.

    I've had to leave mine behind doing pickups when loaded to where there is no room for it to go back on, and told dispatch I had to leave it. Fortunately, when I go back the next morning to pick it up, my customer has taken care to insure it doesn't wonder off in their warehouse. What would happen to an R&L driver if it did "wonder off"? Would he/she be required to purchase another jack again?

    I would wonder where it wandered to.

    Of course, but if it's a big enough place you're likely to never see it again.

    Or better yet you run wild and you can't get back by the place. What happens then? You're dependent up on the company to retrieve your equipment that you purchased. I'm betting they wouldn't have a sense of urgency to retrieve it.
