    What does seniority count for with this company? The number of vacations is about it. No bids on routes or start times. 1yr drivers get to start before 10-15 yr guys. Is it like this everywhere?

    I can't speak for y'all but UPGF senotity is everything. 1 day can make a $10,000 a year difference in pay. I thought all LTL company's were like that.

    I had some issues with how things were going at my barn. I called corp and was told that the manager could do whatever he wanted so with some hesitation I left SEFL. I just celebrated my 2 year anniversary at another LTL and I'm better off here than at SEFL with 8 years of service. SEFL is a great place to work, but there are better.

    Linehaul bids runs by seniority. P&D has no seniority at all.

    yes, I should have stated that I was p&d. When I asked why linehaul bids and p&d didn't no one could answer my question. If I were linehaul I may have been able to survive there but I moved on. To all of you guys I wish you the best of luck.

    We bid Linehaul by seniority . city drivers at my terminal pick which route they want by seniority on Linehaul the newest tractors are assigned to the longest run . This don't settle well with some of the drivers on the bottom of the board we have a few with the spoiled brat diva complex who think they should get all the good suff on day one I'm sure we all have them

    I can tell you how to fix that but I would get booted off for using the "U" word!
