Spin it like you want. I expect nothing less from one of SAIA's biggest cry babies.
And in true fashion, when called out on your BS, rather than argue the point you degenerate into the usual "if you don't like it, leave" rhetoric. Guess I would be crabby if I was called out on my own BS, too. You definitely should have stayed in management. With your blind defense of everything corporate and the like it or leave attitude, you'd move right up the ladder. Management like that is the reason there is such a driver shortage to begin with.
How very mature of you. Once again no dialogue just name calling. Maybe you better take a nitro pill before you collapse.
Thankfully you failed at being an admin as well, so you can take your orders and
I never considered myself a manager even if technically I may have been one in an indirect way. I couldn't fire anyone. I could recommend it but I never had that power. HR always made that call ... I was a dispatcher in the 80's and dealt with cry babies like you every day. I had a job to do and did it well despite putting up with the primadonna attitudes like yours. I know driver value but there comes a point when you get enough. I had numbers to meet just like everyone else and if I didn't meet them then my ass was gone. I did what I was told. I suggest you do the same or start your own company.
How mature of you. Your a real class act.
Calm down pappy, the mean ol' drivers will quit bashing your precious Saia now. All will be right in world once again.
Guess we have different ideas of what this means. I thought you said safe as possible.
Atl is awful
It's like playing dodgeball
Yeah why wouldn't they it cost Coca Cola $22 million
Our reps. have common sense SJ.
Yeah whatever they are human like the rest of us we all make mistakes an it doesn't matter if they are driving a Ford Fusion or a freightliner they both can cost the company millions in court
Right...they are totally infallible. Keep telling yourself that and maybe it will come true. These are the same reps "writing checks" and making promises that drivers have to come through to make a reality. And who gets the bonus? Yep.
The point is that truck companies with sales reps (Saia, coke, Pepsi, whoever) have tremendous exposure on our roads. They also have deep pockets. As far as I'm concerned, Coke has it right by saying anyone in a company vehicle is subject to cameras. Doesn't matter if the logo is on the side or not.
There will be a new version of the vnomics going into the new trucks no later than December
Good. Maybe it won't take 4ever putting trailer numbers in
I feel your pain....I do two meets a night ( 8 pups / 2 dollies )
December? Of what year? This is SAIA after all.
This slam on the brakes radar, peoplenet and camera stuff is creating an atmosphere I haven't seen in a while. Looks like drivers are gonna need a lawyer or some kind of representation. This is not good and it truly saddens me. I hate the company verses driver atmosphere. It's happening at Estes too.
Sad state of affairs to be sure. It doesn't have to be that way either. It's all about the culture that you cultivate. It sounds to me like this is a "us versus them" mentality.
Drivers are a precious resource that are declining daily. The economy of this country depends on us. It would sure be a step in the right direction if companies like Saia would stop hanging their hat on compensation. Believe it or not, money isn't the only thing and is not the be all end all.
i guess that's the reason they fired the one in gvl for wrecking his company car while out drinking.
