Insurance going up $18 per week for family coverage. Co-pay up $5 and deductible went up also.
My 75.00 a week raise should cover that nicely.
Lifer, I would have thought you would be over Averitt by now, if I was as miserable as you were I would have closed this chapter in my life and never looked back, you miss us admit it !
And just think Iceman...if we were getting .58 cpm like our teams and most all other LTL companies single drivers,that be about a $225.00 a week raise. Which on second thought, .58cpm is low balling the top tier companies...
I wish I was still on the GBO, bumped :(
If teams made 1.00 a mile I would be fine, they earn every penny.
Not really...AE doesn't force anyone to run team...they all volunteer to do so...
Anything anyone can get from AVRT.. GOOD FOR THEM!!! I could on and on about the situation over here in T/L....it is what it is...take it or leave.
Lifer...soon I'll be just like you....EX AVRT.....RETIRED! I can't say my time here was wasted, but I've seen things that have my eyebrows raised.
At least I'm going to have lunch with the regional VP down here before I retire. He wants my assessment of AVRT from a T/L drivers point of view.
He is really a good guy...been with AVRT 30+ years...tried to get CKV to create a sleeper shuttle position out of ORL more than once for me.
I admit I miss YOU guys but I don't miss Averitt. I chuckle everytime I see one of those trucks and think, "poor people, I actually feel sorry for them"
And Averitt will never bring the pay rate up to standard. The days of competitive pay are long gone.
I also remember being on choice runs that I would never get bumped off of. However, I am glad I have been bumped off of all of them.
When you leave you will never be more happy. It was the best thing I ever did.
Is there any news on how much the raises will be this year. December is right around the corner.
You can forget about raise this year. It's not been 18-24 months. Maybe the middle of next year. Even though every other carrier has had one.
So, did the clowns in kookville come off a raise this year? My guess is NO.
No mention during the " King Richard" tour stop the other day.
Notice that the sensors changed your correct name of R. King to "King Richard". Reminiscent of the way the media covers for hillary and odumbo..
Hasn't that old coot retired yet? LOL
Other than accidents, all of the numbers that they give us are are great. So why not a raise. We are app 10 cents behind most LTL companies however truckload is at or near the top of all truckload carriers (good for them).
1. Yes i know i can always leave.
2. There will be more accidents because we are hiring at the bottom. We can't attract or retain good drivers.
