    Is there anyone out there that is getting the check ( bonus? ) because your terminal met all of it's numbers?


    There seems to be ZERO talk of this now and has been this way for a while now. From my understanding , most goals where set as unreachable which led to a lot of the management turnover.

    Did you get it last year( for 2016 )?

    The reason for asking is the impression put out there is the service centers that hit their goal last year ( 2016 ) were given an UNREACHABLE goal this past year ( 2017 ) and the service centers that fell on their face in 2016 had an easier path in 2017.

    Kind if like the NFL. The more you loose , the easier your schedule is the following year. On the other hand , if your service center did well the bar was set UNREALSTICLY high.

    Got it last year, no chance this year. Heads have rolled. Maybe next year. It's not a significant amount of money anyway. A years worth of effort for not even one weeks worth of pay.

    Safety bonuses paid quarterly would be a win/win for everyone. The employees are incentivized to be safer at work and the company benefits from a reduction in accidents. I won't be getting any bonus this year as our terminal didn't make our artificially jacked up, too high, non-reality, number.

    I remember a year or two that when we had the ICP program especially one year in particular We got a wonderful bonus and they would give you half before Christmas to help you with Christmas expenses. That was in the good old days.

    Any kind of bonus that puts you in control is out of the question. Unless you agree that they can pay you in toilet paper sheets... oops I meant star cards.

    That's to bad. If you want to incentivize the work force, do that. Otherwise. Keep the bonus. Just give everyone another .05 an hour and stop the crap.

    Did you guys try for the fuel bonus? Might as well ask for that one, since they are always crying about shifting scores and fuel economy.

    We have been begging for performance bonuses paid out in PTO.

    If you make your P&D workload or ETA ( line haul must make it to the FAC on time and return to the home terminal on time ) for the week. No accidents or violations. You earn 1/2 an hour.

    If you make your dock efficiency for a week. No injuries. You get 1/2 an hour.

    Chance to earn an hour a week PTO. If you are eager you could get another weeks vacation in a years time. 52 weeks would get 52 hours. But obviously during vacation weeks you don't earn any score. Dock hands would only be able to get 26 hours. Hostlers would be out of luck. There are some down sides. But people get to choose what they bid. And if you get a bad bid. You know the answer. Should have hired in sooner.

    Gives drivers a reason to want to go out on the dock and break one every night and do it with out goofing off. Would also get more loads back more quickly. Without costing the company any actual money. I know PTO is still paid out. But it's an internal cost. Maybe some day management will see the light on this. PTO is what motivates us.

    Our bonus was 137% for 2017 this year we are at 67%. There isn't much you can do when this company hires dockworker and driver that have no idea how to drive a forklift, unload, or load freight without fu*king it up or getting it all on the same trailer. Customers pissed from damages and delivers missing whole skids.

    Not to sound too much like G.I. Joe or something , but XPO is your company as much as anyone else. You may not agree with everything ( as far as solutions ) that coworkers come up with but , I get the sense that you want XPO to succeed.

    I cannot tell you what to do ( nor would I try ) however I will say that you can do something. Point out these bad apples and stay on management to do their job. Make sure those around you know the correct and safe way to do their job. And finally , be a good example of what you expect in others.

    I know it sounds corny , but honestly , these jobs in LTL aren't hard , it's ignorant people that pose the biggest uphill battle. Once you have decent people the job isn't bad at all. If they aren't decent make them decent.

    But man the "I Don't Give A F##K attitude is rampant here" Last week I saw a trailer at the FAC that had a 1,000lbs skid ontop of a single drum of oil. The drum was all f##ked up and crushed down. I was surprised it didn't split open. I looked in my handheld to see were the trailer came from and to no surprise it came from XTJ.
    I have spent many night reloading trailer and trying to take care of the customers freight some nights with no avail. I see dockworks and drivers too lazy to get there fat lazy azz the forklift.
    We all wander why the customer is pissed
