you can't run a crew any cheaper than RL is doing right now. No overtime, no 401k match, no sick/personal personal days. Really, there is no other option under these circumstances other than to make money. If they are not, then shame on them for not removing the dumb a$$ that is in charge of all this nonsense. Quit taking from the people who are actually making the company money. Pretty soon they will leave for your competitors. Let's see the office and management run a 11 to 14 hr day with no breaks deliver 15 to 20 stops a day and see how far that goes. Right.
Wow. I don't know the whole story yet, but sick days will be icing on my cake when they come back.....
I was going to get a chance to drive one of the 2010 demo trucks in WIL.i think there is 10 or so. they must be lookin at buying some new ones ?
just noticed on careerbuilder that they looking for shopforeman at the burlington shop........what happened? did they run big john out of there too.....? its too bad, he was a good mechanic. always had answers to my questions. btw, whos the regional manager this time???????
The way drivers are treated on a local level is not the point of the discussion.The point is the company is using the economy as an excuse to withhold cost of living increases for the last 2 years as well as taking away your personal days and your 401k match and all while making a profit through the entire economic downturn.Also just because its a rosy picture where you are doesn't mean that it isn't hard for others out there.I know a lot of people on the boards have complained about having to do trailer swaps for a flat linehaul rate after they have done their P&D work for the day even though those swaps are city work.Im glad that your experiance has been good and for the most part so has mine but its also clear you haven't ended up on the bad side of sponge bob yet either.
Richard Herbert This isn't my forum and I don't know why I even care but I have to call you out. With the threads you started it almost seems like your intentions are to start rumors and hurt R+L.
'UPS Freight buying R&L Carriers.'
'Its slowing down...Gonna get bad.........'
Here you said,
So which is it Richard, do you actually work for R+L or do you just pretend to as you start hateful rumors? This is exactly the reason I left this forum last year. Just pathetic."I was actually considering going to work at R&L until I found out that the former president of Holland, B Zimmerman is running R&L..I would never work for this "IDIOT" ever again.Glad I found this out before taking the job. This guy is truly a piece of crap. No wonder everyone there hates there job."
