    Last time I applied at YRC, all they had available at the ABQ terminal were team positions that ran all the way out to the west coast and back. Haven't been or lived in CA or any of the Pacific coast states in five years after moving away from there. Not too eager to return to that mess.

    Coremark is like real work. LTL city work is alot easier than that, typically.

    Can't make numbers without bodies. Some weird decisions being made that would have never flown at the old Con-job.

    " outsourcing " " sub vans " " sub service " you see that all over this board and throughout it's threads. They all mean exactly what you are talking about there. Doing it cheaper with someone that will do it cheaper every time you can. That is effecting us all. It's no different here than where you are as far as that goes.

    I thought Estes was privately held. Complete opposite of the mega-conglomerate that this is.

    That's what we do at OD except we take it one step further, if you jump boards you go to the bottom and you gain seniority from there. But our city is only bid by route. If you have enough seniority to bid whatever route is available, it is yours and it generally comes with it's particular start time. Then you stay in the same area every day. Volume drivers don't have a route, most do just that, run volume loads, but they do bring them in to cover vacation/call out peddle runs too.

    I AGREE that's why I am leaving because, I wanted to do line haul an they put me in the city. They need a bid system like other LTL.

    Well, Estes P/D in Albuquerque picked somebody else and the Estes linehaul in Phoenix told me I needed two years of hauling doubles elsewhere before I could get on over there for a linehaul position. At the same time though, they told me to that I could try for a P/D position instead and then work up the doubles experience that way.

    I am glad I am not at your terminal. Here at mine the long time drivers respect their job and do it well. We try to teach the new guys this is a good company to work for and to do a good job. Here at this terminal we care. There is accountability and we know this is a good job to keep.

    As bid season gets into full swing I see several people will be taking advantage of being able to change their shift, schedule and job to better suit their home time.

    XPO Logistics LTL has a bid system formally known as the job selection process

    Usually starts around this time of year if I understand you correctly.
