    All you and west driver are doing is proving that before the merge there were already stupid drivers at freight.
    You boys need to get over this "we were better than national" attitude. It's dumb.

    Good enough. My bad towards you, sorry. I mis-understood what I thought you implied.
    It was west driver that was downing the former nat. hands, not you.
    Anyways.... I'll shut-up now about it, 'cause that argument is WAY old and I don't wanna go down that road.

    I would also address communication issues.I thought after the merger we might have had a video or something giving us an overview of how it went down. My SCM seems to be left in the dark about stuff.

    I'd be happy if we had Kiosks, phones, and assigned trucks. We finally got flush toilets last week.

    This thread is about what you would do to make it better, not to argue about crap we have been arguing about for months now.
    The first post was right on. Too much micromanaging, let more things be managed at the local level. SM's and OM's are afraid to make a decision about anything. They are not allowed to use any common sense. That includes the shop foreman.

    Two thing's would make this a better company to work for, 1-All Management follow 1 set of rule's, not change them to suit their individual need's. 2- Communication between all parties be on time and communicated properly. These 2 change's alone would make FDX FRT a better place to work.


    NOTE, I'm retired from FDX FRT but I still keep up on what's happening their.

    you put your time in , you bid something different
    Here's where I get in trouble
    we lowered our standards when we bought watkins and let them
    dovetail in
    we had hiring standards that went out the door
    sorry but if they could have got a job at fedex they would have
    And by the way , my run requires me to work the dock
    hopefully when some people retire , quit , get fired I'll get a
    non-dock bid
    WD..... Do Not lump us Watkins Employees all into that category of we @ Fed Ex are better than Watkins Employees.......I personally can do anything you can as good or better than you and somethings that you can't do at all, so back off with the bashing will ya.

    Bring back a linehaul that worked.
    Let line drivers drive.
    Bring back full time dockworkers.
    Bring back set checks and lets fix our own equipment.
    Get rid of Snapshot. It doesn't work and managers spend more time sharpening their pencils and cleaning the place up before a visit. Looks to me like every SC runs whatever way they run.
    Have a proven outside vendor write the programs for our scanners. We have nothing but problems with them now.
    Quarterly meetings with the big wigs so they can be reminded that there are actual people affected by their decisions and not just Corporate ID#'s. Where questions can be asked without fear of reprisal.
    Bring back the Open Door policy.
    Let dockworkers load the freight like it's supposed to be loaded. Pounds/Bill per hour are fine, but not to the point of severe damage to the freight.
    Run us like a freight company, not a package company.
    Get rid of the Mile Marker discs. They are laughably scripted and executed. Wouldn't need them if we had meetings.
    Quit making the employees the problem, but the solution.
    Listen to the employees.
