    Been a few years coming but I believe everyone expected it. 10 years ago I would have argued that Wilson was the best non Union carrier around. It changed so much since '09

    You should have been there in the 70's and 80's! By the time I jumped ship in the mid 90's, it didn't even resemble the company
    I had known for so long. The third generation made so many "improvements" back then that lots of other high quality, longtime employees abandoned them as well. I have believed for many years that decisions made at the top all those years ago would lead to exactly what has now happened. I wish only the best for all the good folks in Fishersville and other locations now looking for a job. Take it from me and LOTS of others, life is much better after Wilson!!

    It's all about greed,I makes no difference ,union or non union.They take there's and we want ours.The old days of a man giving his word are long gone.The younger generation has no morals or values.

    Odd they're still hiring. I noticed an ad the other day for Wilson wanting drivers.
