We are understaffed in the DSR dept. at my barn. And as you have said NF, corporate does want a lean staffed company. However, at our barn it is getting ridiculous. How so?...our barn is understaffed of DSR's not because of corporate's doing. On the contrary, guys have been dropping out of our facility like flies lately.Two have quit cause they've had enough, one was canned, 2 more are scheduled to retire in the next 6 months and there is rumbling that others will move on cause they're fed up w/ the constant start time changes. Coupled w/ the heavy summer vacation season that is upon us and the lack of finding part time o/b dock help...many p&d guys are putting in nearly 12 hours a day.
If the economy picks up w/ this kind of understaffing....some of you guys out there close to us will probably be pitching in to help us out here w/ via's. and p&d work. Don't worry though, cause "we'll leave the light on for yah" when you come through.
