    I hear no complaints from guys I see at my 30min break points just the guys who run system which I would like to do. Do yall have subcontractors pulling too much money runs?

    If you are looking to run linehaul or linehaul system, then you may want to check out Saia. If you are out of Greenville, there should be several Saia terminals closer than Atlanta. I've been in Linehaul for over a decade and I don't have any complaints.

    Hey Dracula, when is the last decent raise those guys have gotten over at Saia.. I have a friend of mine that runs team out GBO and he's pissed because of the "no raise clause" that seems to be in affect over there...

    He says Saia has went to the dogs...

    I can't speak for teams because I don't know for sure what they make or how many miles they drive. The last thing that I had heard was from years ago and that was that teams get paid a few cents more per mile than linehaul. I do remember talking to some teams, at the fuel area, and they were complaining about having to make more drops and driving shorter segments but the miles were still there. What I can tell you is that, the giveback,from a few years ago, has been restored and that we got a raise this year. Saia is financially strong and our OR is consistently low so we can expect another raise this year. Saia just raised the company match on our 401-k and our insurance didn't go up this year.

    Truthfully, as far as Saia going to the dogs, I don't see it. As for my personal situation, I go to work 5 days a week, rarely cut, run a regular schedule, and my paycheck hits the bank every Wednesday. Like I said, I've been running linehaul for well over a decade and I don't have any complaints but my world is different than team world.

    I know that you said that you have checked out some Saia terminals in your area. Go to the Saia website, look in the upper right corner for the careers tab and browse the site. You may find something there and you can apply online. In my opinion, knowing what I seen of this company over the last decade, and having a young family, I'd be tearing that website up with applications, but everyone sees things differently.

    You can apply for a job at Southeastern on there website also. It is sefl.com.Worked for them for over 15 years and I think it is a good company. Best job I ever had. Is it perfect? Nope but I have never seen a perfect job or a perfect company...
