    Anyone here follow the company Facebook page and look at the garbage they put out trying to fool the public?

    For instance, all this nonsense about #weareSEFL. I don't know about where you all work, but where I work we don't hear about any kind of community projects to volunteer for. There's just a handful in Leadership that participate and make it out like we are one big caring company.

    I find it sad that the only way we hear about these things is when we see the pictures posted to our Facebook page that our leadership, and only a handful of them at that, participated in a community project.

    How can we be just one big happy family when we aren't even asked to participate? I'm sure it's because they don't wish to hang around with us. It's pretty obvious by the way they treat the employees where I work they look down their noses at us.

    I could go on and on list and examples but I'm sure the ones of you who work here already know and I'm not sure how much of the public outside of this industry reads this board.

    On average of a dollar fifty to a dollar seventy less than all of the major carriers.

    Which is compounded by how we're treated. Most of the long timers say it's never been this bad. We have a lot of turnover. We need a new dispatch team.

    It's not just clt, DD, it's everywhere. Even the new ATB bb is run by kids with little experience. The company decided that a youth movement is in order. Youth is ok; inexperience and incompetence is not. Is upsf any different? I hearing some of our guys are going there and to OD

    I'm working on some things now that's probably going to get me out of LTL altogether. It's not the job it once was when I got into it way back when.

    I hear bad things about UPS Freight in Charlotte.I turned down a job in Gaffney doing linehaul simply for the fact that they couldn't guarantee me I'd work X amount of days, yet they run purchase transport around their drivers.

    I hear good and bad about Old Dominion. Most of it is good. Some guy say it's not the job it once was, but they don't complain that much either. Obviously when a company grows as rapidly as they have things are going to change, but I think it's still a good place to work.

    I've been here for close to 12 years, I've learned that the only way to make it here is not to care anymore. I was raised to take pride in the work I do but if you do that with this company(maybe just this terminal), it will drive you insane. I used to go out and bust my hind end to try and get every delivery off and all the pickups, now I go out and do what the younger generation of drivers seem to be doing and that's as little as humanly possible.

    I'm with you on work ethic but I'm about to the point of just getting by like you say. Maybe I'll give it a try.

    A friend of mine and I were thinking of going into a business together. We've been talking about it for a couple years and planning it. We're both drivers and it would get us both out of trucks and into a new career as entrepreneurs. Not sure if it'll work out but like I said we've been planning for it for a while so we're thinking of making a move at the first of the year.

    I think this company will sell in the next 5 yrs. they are cutting old manager (higher pay) fat, overpricing freight so we just maintain market share, and investing the profits in physical assets (land, equipment, facilities). We can't grow anymore until all these new management kids get good at their jobs. Debt is low.
    Last time upsf tried to buy us, the owners overpriced the company so it wouldn't sell. I doubt that will happen again. Been wrong before though lol

    It's really sad that we for a company like that. I was always taught that if you work hard you'll be rewarded. Well the only thing that does for you here is more work. They definitely dive the care right out of ya.
