The last five drivers we hired said we offers one of the best compensation packages.
Did they all make that proclamation together. " We the newest drivers proclaim this is the highest compensating job out there as of this day ..... "
No. It was separate conversation I had about why they decided to work here. You should try that some day. I asked questions and they answered.
Any other questions you’d like me to answer?
Where did they come from ? Swift Knight JB Hunt Central transport?
Did they come from otr companies, small regional freight companies? Yeah, this would be an upgrade for anyone like that. I'm pretty confident they didn't come from OD, FedEx, or UPS freight.
I was referring to insurance though, not compensation. There's literally no way they can say out new employee insurance is some if the best out there.
In some areas we might be the best in compensation. It all has to do with were the barn is at. There are 3 LTL companies near my barn and when the "We are hiring" sign go out we all have a hard time getting drivers. We are on a very busy truck road and when we put the sign up only one applied. We have 3 companies that are non-ltl in our area and they make $18-19 per hour with no OT and have the same or worst benefits then we do. You would think they would be knocking down the door at one of these LTL companies. Some just like were they work and other are out for top $$$$$
As we know the LTL driver got there raise. The big question are the getting another one?? FedEx is a very large company with many division. No were in there statement did they mention what division or who was getting the raise. the only thing they state is the 1.5million to the employee pension plan.
I made more and worked less to get it. What I made this last year I made without trying. I wander what I would have made if I was trying to make more.
We can thank the Democrats and Obama for the state of our heath care system. If you remember he, Obama, said we would see a cost savings of around $1200 to $1500 in premiums per year per family. I still waiting for that to kick in.
By trying do you mean stealing? Or volunteering to work more hours?
by volunteering to work more or by passing runs down.
Though we do have those guy that do steal hours everywhere they can.
Got it. I didn’t think you ment stretching it.
Word gets around quickly among drivers in a community as to whether a certain company is good to work for. It’s why mine is struggling to hire anyone able to pass a drug test
I don’t remember where they came from. One was OTR. A few of them said they interviewed with another LTL and chose XPO.
Both you and I know that most drivers never look into the future very much. They wanna see whats on the check. Hell year an otr driver will be impressed with our pay while he's making .34 per mile. It just happened to me last week, the guy liked to have passed out after he inquired about a LTL job.
The same reason we have trouble. I remember back in the day I had some of my fellow drivers and friends told me to stay away from CCX. I think that stink is still hanging around.
Had a 19 year man walk out Monday. Everyone has a breaking point. Seems to have gotten considerably easier to move on.
They must have worked for bottom feeders!!!!
That's why I put the P.S. there at the bottom of the post.
