    Wasn't planning on transferring for at least another 6 months but personal circumstances say otherwise.
    I need to transfer if at all possible in the next 30 days to move family.

    Anyone know how long a transfer request takes for an Linehaul driver?
    I would ask the terminal but its labor day weekend so have to wait til Tuesday.

    Also, is KCMO terminal one to keep a guy busy with good runs like Dallas?

    Been working for 4 months with Saia. Gotta say I wish I had taken the plunge a long time ago. I am enjoying working here busting my rear 6 days a week making great money, minus a few a-hats in central its a peach of a job.

    I was told and read that you have to be working for Saia for 90 days to qualify for transfer.
    To clarify the question. How long is the process on average once you put in the request to transfer. I see that there are job openings at the one I am requesting to transfer to.

    It will all depend if there is an actual opening at the terminal you want to transfer to. If they have city drivers wanting to go linehaul they will get first shot at it. Your terminal manager may not approve it if they are short handed. It could take a while , it could be immediate ,a lot of variables will come into play.

    It all depends on how lazy your TM is.

    It is going to depend on what terminal you are transferring from, how busy it is & how easy it would be to replace you, and if there is an opening where you want to go... talk to everyone - start with your current TM, then call the TM at the terminal you wish to goto & if all else fails call HR
