it is february and we are missing pick ups and yet we have guys staying home against their will everyday.
WTF IS GOING ON HERE?????
you CANT miss pick ups everyday in ******* february!!!! do the people at the top EVER pay attention???? we look like amateurs and it is embarrassing to say you work here sometimes. dispatchers that are worthless and arrogant(not all of them) to the point that they act like the customers are at our disposal, not the other way around. routers who just do not know what they are doing, or where anything is, even when they are staring at a map, and COULD CARE LESS ABOUT DRIVERS BEING ABLE TO MAKE PICK UPS! i mean hello!! is this some kind of experiment to see how NOT to run a trucking company??? you cant think it is a good idea to have the inbound guys come out and say they do not care if we make pick ups or not.(that is 100% the accurate truth!!!)
and management that only worries about numbers as far as the man hours goes, not missed pick ups or return deliveries because the driver got to the stop too late because he didnt leave the yard until after 10 with 15 deliveries.
being ran the way it is right now, who is going to want to use us in about 3-5 years??
am i whining? maybe i am. but you see i need this ******* job and my family needs me to stay here. so i will admit my reasons for whining are selfish reasons, as i think most of us who post here are also. we need to and want to work, so most of us go out and give more than 100% everyday. but the only way we are going to keep our jobs is by not having our terminals run by guys who just dont care, or just dont know what they are doing to the point that they are running the company into the dirt.. and that is what the problem is.
whether it is arrogance or ignorance that is the problem, neither one will do us any good
