    when it comes to lay offs you are right...But if you have to much time in and there are guys below you they just fire the person... I know 3 guys it happen to last week!!

    No, this is not fact. AUG let go a 10 yr man based on performance, past and present.

    Ain't that the truth. Just go to the Yellow forum, they've been talking about it for weeks.

    Ya it's bad right now there just doesn't seem to be any christmas freight to speak of. Usually at this time we are all charging pretty hard and it just isn't happening. Like I've said on the other forums I have 6+ years senority and 50 guys below me and I am only getting one maybe two trips a week. Now that is slow. And it's system wide here at Yellow. There are other LTL co. laying off too. CCX, FEDeX, and Estes are all laying people off. Maybe not onthe scale as some of the others but all the LTL co's are feeling the crunch.

    I for one am pleased that Jevic is prospering.

    It was simple fact that the two carriers were way too apart in operating models and the previous executive attemps to mesh the two were doomed from the beginning.

    As for the current troubles, it is merely reflective of the current economy and the market segment which we serve.

    One also might remember that when we were doing so well that Jevic was having to rebuild itself.

    Well we are hiring also in dls and grl!! Just because you hire in some spots and layoff in others doesn't mean a thing!! If you come to work and the lights are off and the gates are locked then things are looking bad!!!

    Tell me it's not true, comes from a reliable source in GBO that Saia has so much freight it can't haul it, so someone has either got their facts wrong or someone has been lied to.

    GNC is giving freight to another agent just to get it delivered. They fired one city driver for the "workforce reduction" and now we don't have enough drivers to get the freight delivered. We didn't have enough driver B4 the "reduction". They said the "numbers" did not look good so they fired a driver. Go figure.
