Well, Just Damn!
How bloody will the chop block at Conway be?
I know that let go over 200 in sales already.
They have been all giddy on the ConWay forum the last few days and seeing nothing but unlimited work and being showered with $$$$ in the future, all in a well oiled perfect environment.
Wait 'til reality sets in......
Top heavy management, and looks like Jacobs is giving their Lean program the boot. Looking at CW's forum, most thought the lean program was costing more than it was worth.
Management Cleaning House is a good thing , time for new people and ideas , and really they don't need that many salesman with all the freight brokers , doing the same job , XPO has a good track record on how to do it !! and JAMIE what-cha think of xpo golf balls ???
Do we have any old CF guys on here? I was just wondering if they are grinning a little bit at this whole thing. If it gets ugly over there I hope some of them post some nice comments on here about their concern for those fella's at Conway!
"Included in the cuts will be an entire layer of Con-way upper management, whose elimination will save its new owner about $28 million a year; the managerial segment was not adding much value to the organization"
I'm a C.F guy from SCC the Sacramento consolidation Center and no I'm not grinning, there are good people at Conway and I also have some friends there I am hoping for the best,
http://www.conwaylayoff.com/ , Gee maybe YRCW should go after these driver's too ???
I remember going to a customer just after CF closed. A CF driver was there delivering with an old ratted out GMC, they were still cleaning out the system. Two CCX drivers were there doing trailer swaps with new Sterlings I will never forget how they were snickering at this poor guy who knew he had only days left. From that point on I never had an ounce of love for that company.
Sounds to me this guy has a very clear idea of what he is going to do with conway. Cleaning house of top heavy management and the "lean" group sounds like this guy has no patience for cronyism and will get rid of anyone not providing positive results for Xpo. Looks like impressive leadership to me. This guy has a vision for this company and I have a feeling will work out very well. Also Yrcf look out with them starting an economy freight service, I've seen Fedx already taking some of our business with theirs, and this guy sounds like he will be very aggressive after our business as well.
Doesn't yrc offer 7 day service on everything???
Heights to the Ridge, guaranteed!!
If everything goes smoothly.
Ya... When does that happen?
Yep,even the two day service!
Just breaking!! I read on the Conwa/XPO board that there have been sightings of union reps appearing at different XPO logistics yards.
That would be so funny if it weren't true.
Ahh... It's still funny!
Sorry... Off topic... Back to your regular scheduled programming!
I agree with you but there are also good people there. It's just like everywhere there are jerks as well.
Already took Protrans from Holland.
