    oh ok, I thought it was just save a lot where you had to bag your own. either way, ALDI's pays well to people who work there, stocking shelves, being cashiers, etc.

    Since when did Aldi have bag boys. You sack your own groceries.

    i remember flipping thru the employment ads a couple years ago, and they were paying stockers and cashiers over 16 an hour. that's more than a lot of truck drivers around western ny....

    I tell you what keeps me warm and everybody should follow this one rule if your working on the dock 3 airplane bottles of whisky to one 12oz Pepsi can in your water bottle keep drinking till warm or until the freight starts looking like it's sitting sideways hold off for 30 min then repeat process and I bet at the end of the day when your done you will be nice and warm and passed out in the break room or your car

    Oh how I miss those -22 nights, 11 hours into a 14 hour shift...8 of us working the rest sent home due to being out of hours. Line haul drivers on the bench since 8 pm. knowing that they won't get their bills sacks until after 2 am. Standing room only...! Warden Welch will take good care of the inmates...work harder and you will get warm. The YRC brain washing goes on. It is what it is...it's warmer in the yard than standing on a concrete slab. Simple dress in layers...

    Bo hoo. Sorry but the company doesnt control the weather. Maybe you should take a yard bid or is that too much work for you? Man up you chose this profession
