Good to hear things are improving.
but hey look, they got a new web site, modern technology at its finest, generation skipping tech!! these morons actually have said that npme is one of the most financially secure companys in the business. if you really want a good laugh, read how they describe the conditions for working here for dock workers. in there employement section of new website. they got to be smokeing crack down there in Lebanon, what they claim and what is the truth is so far apart its mind blowing...
Is Cinn really 2 weeks behind??? Unbelievable
I think philly is the worse
22 is back logged. There not renting trls
What used to be THE premium next day carrier, it's a damn shame.
People are quitting faster then they can hire them. When I Worked for them, I was told my multiple people to get out as quick as possible. Including union stewards. It's like a cesspool of misery with most of the employees still there. Didn't say all just most.
I have to say that I don't blame them, particularly the older ones. They had a good, strong, money making company, lean mean working machine and YRC ruined it. Cut their pay (after they rejected the cuts at least once they were ordered to vote again and get it right), all but eliminated their pension payments costing them their retirement all while lavishing upper management with some of the highest salaries in the industry and basically just pissed all over the workers. I commend anyone who can work there and maintain positive attitude and if I worked there I'd be looking to move on.
The company slogan here seems to be "F!&! THE DRIVER" After 20 years I set up a road test elsewhere.damn shame what they are doing to this company.
I hold no ill will towards any of them. New Penn isn't returning to what it once was and if anything may get worse in 2019. For me, I just don't want to work with a bunch of guys that miserable. Some of the nicest and most friendly are senior guys it's just the others. Management is a joke I would call a 1% er. Where 1% of what they tell you is truth. Plus..... when you are not even driving due to bid cuts, maybe it's time to that union advice and get out.
Its worse for the long term employees who were there when it was good place to work. Now its a horror show, and thats being kind !
I heard a radio add this weekend. A New Penn Ad looking to hire drivers.
Welcome to the level of NFI.
We do need drivers though. No doubt about it.
I saw we had at least one full Cinnaminson run loaded this weekend....there may have been 2...for our city guys to run.
It's past time to stop being morons and give the Reading freight back to Reading....setup another place to do the Uline stuff....running back and forth from Reading to Allentown is nonsense waste for that high dollar freight.
You would think Dave would be smart enough to do that but the powers probably wont let him.
If they cant service the customer, how are they going to teach us how to use the new computers?
well with this new live website, customers can see there freight still sitting on the dock instead of moveing, can see it going to some other terminal except the one its supposed to go to. wonder if they can see their freight parked in a trailer that doesn't get worked today. maybe watch it sit in the yard couple days before its touched. thank you sawnkee and faust for making npme one of the most inefficiently run companys in the country. that 97.2 o/r is definitely something for you two to be proud of...
maybe yrc should read this

4 How to Deal With a Lazy Manager That Puts All the Work on You
Low morale doesn't just show on the faces of disheartened employees who go about their day with sad, uninterested expressions, constantly looking at the clock waiting until quitting time. Low morale manifests itself in many other ways that affect the organization's bottom line -- poor performance, costly absenteeism and difficult-to-resolve workplace conflict that creates even more expense for employers who must defend their employment actions in the courts. Identifying low morale is just the beginning, however. Organizations that recognize problematic morale are obligated to implement strategy to improve overall job satisfaction and increase morale to restore productive working conditions for their employees.

2017 Engagement Checklist
Free checklist to assess employee engagement. See how you score.
One of the tell-tale signs of low morale in the workplace is employee turnover. Employees who become disillusioned with their jobs ultimately feel unappreciated and look for employment elsewhere. As they embark upon a job search and talk about the job search with colleagues with whom they commiserate about the poor working conditions, their co-workers might embark upon a job search of their own. The domino effect occurs and results in a higher-than-normal turnover.
Low productivity is another manifestation of poor employee morale. Poor morale affects the manner in which employees perform their job duties. They may be less attentive to their job duties or careless about maintaining proficiency in areas where they once excelled. As a result, their performance drops and, eventually, it has a devastating impact on productivity. Diminished productivity affects the bottom line, which means reduced profitability for the organization overall.
Unhappy employees tend to be involved in more incidents of workplace conflict. According to Randstad Engineering's post titled, "Turning Workplace Conflict Into Opportunity," conflict and morale are inextricably intertwined. At first, a few incidents of workplace conflict might be brushed aside as a mere difference in opinion between two or more employees. However, over time, as conflict between employees and conflict between employees and supervisors increases, it becomes much more difficult for the HR department to address workplace issues. With a higher incidence of workplace conflict, HR may find it difficult to use proactive measures to prevent the conflict, and is therefore, dependent on mainly reactive measures to resolve workplace issues.
In its 2007 annual study on how morale increases the number of unscheduled absences, research products provider Wolters Kluwer Law & Business reports that absenteeism due to low morale cost employers upwards of three-quarters of a million dollars. It identifies reasons that employees give for not showing up to work when the company knows that low morale is the culprit. According to CCH's "Unscheduled Absence Survey," employees with low morale call in sick with excuses related to personal illnesses, family matters and because they feel entitled to a day off.
FRIENDLY ⁉️ They need to get out and hear what customers have to say.
I was mostly dock before they switched to load bars and racking and stacking and 53's all the time....now I'm back.....I never really cared about companies. Was never a company man. But what I see now is leaving me almost speechless except for some rageful outbursts about the way the trailers are loaded and the extra work we must do to clean up the disgusting messes.....every third trailer or so........This company is run exactly the same way every other loser company operated whilst new Penn was beating them all...........pathetic gambling money wasters...looking for money only for the few at the top........Take a system which totally worked...made workers happy. made customers happy......and turn it into a piece of trash hauling outfit......stack it stack it stack it!!!!!! rack it rack it rack it!!!!!!It's the only way too make money!!!!! Fill the big stupid waste of time and money 53'
.......sorry...that lie was proven wrong when NPME was top...following that has done nothing.
I've seen companies do stupid things before...but what YRC has done and what they do now.....it don't get dumber than this..no way.
