    I don't know about new accounts, but am I the only one who has actually seen things get much worse the last year? I am actually worried the moral and the quality of the workers is so bad I can not believe it and some of the new hires...OMG! Management has lost control the company is throwing money away on the stupidest things, well I am usually pretty optimistic but I am actually getting a little nervous right now. Somebody way up top better start worrying more about running the company and less about how big there bonuses are or we are all going to be working for the non unions.....better start studying about 401K's instead of pensions.

    I agree 5tolls,I mean I'm confused with all this hiring, waste of money, we had a guy come out of orientation, work one trip and sit home rest of week,needless to say he quit Friday, the money they are spending on this is ridiculous, it's like a slap in the face,they are spending a lot of money on this hiring deal,are we missing something brother, lol

    They are hiring yes votes. The new hires are coddled and given whatever they want. I've never seen a bigger group of ass kissers than the drivers and casuals they are bringing in. This company is terrified of 2019.

    I don't think they are terrified at all....We work with a bunch of wussies that won't even mail in their self addressed stamped envelope to change the union leadership! The company will offer a huge pile of :shit: contract, we will be vote it down like 52-48.....then the company will make a couple adjustments so it is just a very large pile of :shit: instead of a huge one and state that otherwise they will have to close the doors and it will pass about 68-32 and we will all start saying "Wait till 2024".

    New penn getting a lot of 53's with load bars already installed. The load bars ride on tracks, and are stored in the ceiling of the trl. We also are getting 30 screws & 40 single axle mack automatics

    Same experience here. It was more effort and frustration to lower and raise them and get them even than it was to just go grab a couple bars and put them where needed.

    Those look like they are spaced to far apart to stack a skid on.

    Should be spaced enough for a skid. Look at an xpo,or OD trailer.
