    So I left Con-way going on 4 years at the end of this year and I got a text message from XPO recently saying there is a DSR rehire incentive to come back to the "team". Is XPO this hard up for drivers?
    Heck is going on fellas?

    The industry as a whole will do anything and everything except improve wages, conditions or benefits.

    That they are. Still , it's not motivating them to to make it better. Quite a crux isn't it.

    We had a driver get fired for rolling his kite. They asked him to come back.
    I thought we were busy but we sat two linehaul drivers Friday night. They did run off the FAC, so maybe them sitting was by design. I don’t see the big picture, so whatever!

    I have not received anything like this from them , I guess that it depends on the location . In the area I was at , there's still a few gullible people available to hire.

    You mean these great benefits that companies say are so good? Like,
    Health insurance after 90 days?
    401 K match,up to 3%? Maybe immediately, or after a year.
    3 years,or more wage progression. Even if you have years of experience?
    Long and short term disability,that you pay for?
    No guarantees you will work everyday,but call you a full time employee?

    It sounds like that came from the local service center, I have no idea, If corporate is sending out offers , that is interesting.
    Why would anyone want to do that without some good incentives. You know that you would be on the bottom of the service rank again and how many times does one want to start over again in their lifetime?? I have been gone almost 5 years and still have nightmares about the place!! Lol

    I think since the firing of Tony Brooks upper management might be opening there ears and listening. Though I sorry to say they are doing the same thing Con-way did. "We are always a day late and a dollar short."
