    You did yourself a favor.....Even though it's never good to quit a job without having another one....But this is a special exception.....Now you will be forced to get out and hustle to find another one (depending on your financial situation) but you did the right thing my brother and don't second guess yourself. In the long run you will kick yourself in the ass for not getting out sooner and wasting too much time there. There is no way this could ever not be a winning move.

    Do everything you can to get your money. You worked for it and deserve it.

    Status updating shipments as "appointment pending" does not mean you are delivering on time.

    And the best you can do is use that trick on 90% of the shipments?

    Can't you get the office girl to stop texting long enough to "appointment status" all 100% before she goes home? Or has CT lost the bills for 10% of their shipments, so the girl doesn't have the pro numbers to update them as an appointment?

    Just another reason why this company is the poster child of incompetence on how to run an LTL company.

    Seems like an awesome accomplishment, but the problem still is CT's reputation proceeds them. Really bad customer service and a majority of drivers who dont care along with cheap rates....while other better performing carriers like old d , fdx, UPS and conway pride themselves with SERVICE. all phases..... i have had terrible experieces with CT. tell you what all the 800# . i guarantee that you will wait at least a half hour for a customer service rep to pick up....--half hour ---really ? ok , now you have a quesiton about a shipment...they have to call the terminal.....your on hold at least another 10-15 minutes....why ? theres no-one at the terminlas to answer the phone.....i'm not an expert on customer service , but i dont see this business module sustainable......so, congrats on 16,000 bills...sustain it and grow it over a year that will be an accomplishment.

    All I had to do is look at a CT truck years ago and said, no way would I work there, pretty sure turns out I was right, and probably the main reason for some more bill count is under cutting the other guy...

    Snark Monkey is 100% correct. If a shipment is going to miss service they will APR or APT it. And this is not done at the barn, this is done in house at corporate.

    So are you guys saying that if I want out of groceries and want to go back into the crazy easy world of LTL I shouldn't apply at Central Transport? LOL.

    I did 7 yrs in LTL so I know the work.

    That's exactly what we are saying........Old man you have paid your dues and it's better you stay right were your at.....Working in the grocerythrower business without necessarily throwing groceries....That's what I would do.
