    gl!

    a job you have problems with is still better than no job at all :butt kiss: :hysterical:

    cool thing about west coast is you guys get paid for the first and last drop/hook, where as we dont.

    I also believe you dont have to wait half hour to get delay time like we do :chairshot:

    If you did'nt get the hint...I do not expect to hear you complain about anything in this forum! LOL

    :chairshot:Sorry----WAS at Conway. The liars I'm referring to are the people who do the hiring at any trucking company.They will sell you a bucket of crap & pass it off as a steak dinner.We wear butt filters at our quarterly meetings for prevention of rectal cancer.Lots of smoke blowers

    Ohhhh....I see what you are saying, but, I went back to Con-Way, and was ok with that for a long time, until the last year or two when the company changed course 180 degrees, or should I say finished changing course? :(

    It just got to be toooooooo much BS for me, and it was/is sad, I really liked CWX, but am not so happy with "Con-Way Freight, Western"

    The place sux

    I worked there for 15 years and let go for not cancelling my wife and step children off my policy quick enough so they considered it fraud I even tried to pay any premiums they paid but no can do I was fired for falsefication of paper work. Go Saia i really believed in that company but never had a incident or accident in 15 years got million plus accident free miles.
    Thanks Saia you done me a favor. Making more money less days at new job god bless all out:1036316054:

    Ive got a better job, people treat you as you should be treated,as a driver. Benefits or far better than Saia's. Just had interview today with FEDEX freight turned it down only .565 a mile not enough for me. Iam telling you life is better. Worked out of Jax terminal and it was good as long as you didnt breath wrong. Believe me or not but if you were a betting man I would put my money where my mouth is and try to bet. Ask any linehaul drivers or city for that fact. Dont care one way or the other. Yall have a good day and be safe will call out on the radio rewind out

    it all depends on the terminal you run out of. i've layed down in JAX, but not been there long enough to get a feel for the place...just in and out. i'm happy where i'm at for now...it could always be worse. everyone has a unique experience with their employer...some just aren't good fits and i'm glad you found a place where you are content and fit well rewind.

    I've worked for worse than FedEx, but it's not the top of my list. At least when they were Watkins, I still had a full time dock position. They told us no one would lose there job, that wasn't true. Now they tell the full timers they won't be forced to get a CDL to keep their full time dock position. I don't know!!!

    I had a friend and an in-law recommend working for them on the dock. But apparently they would rather hire guys that can't drive a forklift than hire a woman with experience!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In jax we had a woman city driver she done very good back then saia had the lowes account delivering appliances. Driver had to unload. They kept giving it to her over and over. She finally said f@@# this place and quit. Saia only wants women in the office or on a team truck. But the company could be better if you got rid of some of the upper mgt. Particular HR department.

    You have this ALL wrong. You have been trying to get in with SAIA for some time now I thought? Maybe try another company who would enjoy having you work for them. I happen to know a few females that work the dock and drive a truck better than alot of men.:1036316054:

    A woman can do this job just as well as a man can.:smilie_132:
