Word I heard is that saia has lost over 100 drivers smh
I think you are a undercover saia cop
I BET ITS MORE THAN THAT. AND DEFINITELY GONNA BE A HOLE LOT MORE.
Good riddance! in all seriousness though there is no way to know how many of those drivers were already on their way out the door whether by choice or not... or even if that number is correct - as a line driver myself I can tell you that I screw with the gossip hotline from time to time just to entertain myself
I do know the exact numbers either? But here's the terminals hiring drivers..
P & D
Almost all terminals are hiring Linehaul drivers.
Never trust a truck driver to be honest unless he's complaining. And even when he's complaining, he's still probably exaggerating a bit.
When drivers complain to other drivers, it usually becomes a "who's worse off" contest in the vein of "uphill both ways in 3 feet of snow".
We are not losing drivers.
Like I say be careful of the truck driver story your telling cause I may have been the guy that started it lol
I do know that 2 left for sure, one was going to retire in a month, the other ( me) had planned on retiring next February but got tired of the BS and left early.

I did it barefooted in 3 feet snow in winter .....3 feet of grass-burrs in summer..."uphill both ways". LMAO
Maybe some, but it's minimal. Even the great UPS has some turnover.
Rings true. Passes the sniff test.
This is a real truck driver!!
Who knows what to believe. Before we call BS, let's ask Train how many drivers, both city and Linehaul, have left his barn? Then we can go from there or not.
If train was in management, he would never admit saia has lost any drivers because everybody knows management is bound by their job to never spread negativity and train tells it like it is.
It's been almost 24 hours and no reply from Train. Maybe he called BS too soon?
Out of 81 P&D drivers in GRL not one has left because of the cameras. A couple are on probation for cell phone usage but no casualties as of yet. Zero from linehaul but we have several on workers comp. I hesitated to answer this because of OT's post. No one will believe me. Having said that I'm certain some will leave because of the cameras but as of today not one has. I think it's because the compensation plan SAIA has is almost impossible to beat and most know that the grass isn't greener. Now I'm told SAIA is completely different in the South so it would be hard to gauge how things are going system wide. But this I know for a fact!!! No one has those numbers but HR and even they can't determine why many leave. Thats why this thread is straight up BS.
He has to wait for his corporate string puller to review the post and send him a script of what to replay. Sorry for the delay.
