    Do they still pay the drivers by the hour when in the sleeper? von.

    Do some DC's offer 7 days on 7 days off? von.

    Not that I’m aware of. No 7-7 5-5 4-4 and no more of the 3/2 system, work 2 weeks and have a full week off. I believe all they offer now is work 5 have 2 off and work 5 and have 3 off. Almost everyone is having to work weekends even when they have 10-15 years of tenure. There were rumors that WM was calling some of the guys that quit offering them the same package that they had when they quit. Wether any of them went back and actually received that is questionable.

    Maybe you could drive the towmotor than brings the carts in from the parking lot.

    NO contract no guarantee better off staying at Holland! They cut all good benefits they once had I believe used to have paid meal breaks and paid to sleep in the truck the original drivers who invested I the stock retired as multimillionaires.

    They still pay you when you take your break in the truck (which for most drivers is every night of their tour). They still pay you for everything you do and I believe they have rolled back (haha get it??) the stupid pay cut they instituted earlier this year that cost them a :shit: ton of drivers.

    Kept a holland driver from leaving and going there. If it is 2500 or 5000 too much for me to leave.

    I agree its not the best however im making 30000+ more a year so I do alot better. Plus we make our full salary if off upto 6months and thats a free benifit. Also have options as to what Insurance you want....Plus job security is nice!!!! How long will YRC survive?
