    That part of it has changed the least and you are right on target with dealing with the people. Their attitudes are much different than they were way back when. Back when the industry was regulated and if they pissed the driver or the company off they were screwed. Now they treat us all like dog :shit: and just move on to the next pile of dog :shit: when it doesn't go their way. Good luck to you and happy trails. Doggy Pyle is about as good a company as they get nowadays.

    Congrats!! I honestly think dock work will be at a minimum. Some terms do not want drivers working the dock. We have a tendency to get in the way. Each place has its rhythm. And we do not know it. Best advice, quietly observe. Do not be afraid to ask. 99 percent of the guys will help you out. Feel free to PM me

    No pension anymore at Pyle just a matching 401k. OD is one of the best ltl carriers around. Unless you really hate it there I really don't see any benefit to going to Pyle.

    Best guess is on the workload side companies are similar. Bronx will be servicing Long Island. (for now). The traditional pension- defined benefit- was closed around 2005. Replace with a defined contribution. Now profit sharing. Still a type of pension. Just not what most readily think of. Plus the 401k match.

    Doggy Pyle has been pretty stable but they do have a guy working there who brings bad omens with him, he must have closed about 10 LTL carriers.

    All I will say is it's union and the majority of people are miserable. When the steward tells you to get some experience here and get out...... it's a tell tale sign of how bad it may be
