    They're certainly all about the pyramid aren't they? I've found it's a rather odd culture. I mean, I've seen QWQ's handed out for as little as a driver fueling a tractor.

    It reminds me a lot of the videos I've seen about Wal-Mart team meetings where they brainwash the associates.

    Don't get me wrong I love it here, I just don't pay the propaganda any mind.

    It all depends on what king rules his little kingdom as to what is emphasized. Some scm are big on quality while others ignore it

    We used to get some really useful stuff from qwqs. I would get 8-10 pair of leather gloves as qwq mementos. Last me all year

    Are we stuck under our i.q. supervisor? We have two dispatchers and each druver is assigned under one. They handle different territories.

    You can ask scm to move you and if you like you can go up to regional HR about it. Beware injuring the kings Pride however

    They will try to brain wash you until the point of thinking they are the be all, end all, soul survivor ltl carrier.

    i love that the owners make the scm look out for the drivers job satisfaction level. Managers who perform poorly on SDI are told to change things. If the drivers make it past the "change" they may get to see a new manager who listens to his drivers to a certain degree

    I love getting new equipment. Feel bad for all the holland, yrc, Wilson, ABF guys that have to drive around worn out junk. Must take a toll on their backs

    I hate that you can get fired because you stand between a scm and his ladder climbing

    My biggest gripe against Sefl is that seniority means next to nothing. You get first pick of vacations and the newest truck if you are at the top, but that's all it counts for. I've watched guys nearing retirement age get pulled off their routes so a younger faster man can give the scm the numbers he wants

    I should add that some terminals do get to bid city routes while others offer start time bids

    Those spring ride M2 freightliners ride like a wagon on wooden wheels and all the junk freight that southeastern specializes in hurt my back more than the junk I've driven elsewhere. I will say their facilities are second to none.

    1267 new tractors since 2014 and still more coming in. YRC even more new ones coming. New guys over here may have to ride old for a little til there replaced.
