I’m a line driverHello brother, look at the big picture:
Yellow worker-------- (24.75/ Hr.) 55 Hrs. /week, average = 1545.00
0.00 health deductions, 401K for some is 125.00/week----No work production.
Estes worker-------- (31.50/Hr.) 55 Hrs. / week, average = 1840.00 ( OT after 48 Hrs.)
250.00 to 400.00 health deduction, depending on family size. 401K match offer only. Must work non stop, must check dispatching for delays or you get points to be discharge.
Old Dominion------ (30.00/Hr.) 55 Hrs. / week, average = 1725.00 ( OT after 50Hrs.)
Other deductions and benefits about the same as Estes...
So, first go and make your homework before you jump the ship.
Remember at Yellow, we have more control of how many hours you want to work.
Other companies, you must obey or else.
You don't realize how good you have it until is too late.
If you have 2 years or less of seniority, go ahead try different companies.
if you have 2 to 10 years, try it too if there is an abundant of companies in your area.
10 years to 20, do your homework carefully.
20 years to 25, jump if it is really bad your situation.
25 years or more. No thank You.
