    the recession deepens

    Sorry about the layoffs , but I wonder when the next class is . when they let the p+p drivers go they kept on hireing .

    Are you guys that slow that there are lay offs? If so good luck to all you drivers ect.Good things will happen have hope.
  5. I heard that it was more like 70 drivers to get layed off. All the ex-Jevic drivers except for a few that are running teams were let go. Looks a lot like Jevic. Except they cant blame it on a few Southern Terminals. This is just the beginning!!

    That is why I did not bother with them.No way could they absorb that many drivers
    and office people in this lousy economic environment.Besides,I want a life outside
    the truck.

    70 , thats a lot of people , management must be in a tizzy , hire scores of people one month ,then lay off soon there after . I guess the work they anticipated has not materialized . The Manufacturing sector is at a standstill due to wall street and raw material demand is down (lower gas prices) so transportation is the first place to feel the effects of a slow down in the economy and one of the first places to pick up when the recovery starts . Lets hope for everyones sake it recovers quickly .

    No heater freight?

    N.C. should be starting to get lots of heated freight starting about now. All of what they had plus most of Jevic's old accounts.

    Hubby got laid off too. A couple of weeks before the insurance was to kick in. We haven't recovered from the layoff from Jevic yet.... hoping he finds something else soon.

    I don't believe any truck driver with any company is completely secure these days

    Yes! even Harry's magic touch cant stop the effects of todays economy at the big red machine, We too are feeling the pinch at Big R, as far as the heated freight goes, if we have a mild winter like last, there will be no need for the once great heat fleet. Customers will realize that they wont have to sign on the dotted line and pay thru the nose for a service that is not needed:smilie_132:

    Good time to do something

    Looks like its a good time to do some soul searching and become a nurse or paramedic or something that has a future. Let's face it trucking is going the way of the mills these days. We will all be looking at a career change soon I think. Good luck in whatever you do!
