Filling out application and I find the company is totally obsessed with medical history of drivers and dock workers. What gives ?
I filled it all out it wasn't to bad. Their getting ready to add runs here in NY so it's a great time to get on. The health insurance is top notch. The dental is really good and the vision insurance isn't bad.Filling out application and I find the company is totally obsessed with medical history of drivers and dock workers. What gives ?
Just about every nonunion company is self insured. I've talked to a few drivers here who were out for some serious medical conditions and didn't have any problems. I would think that there are some privacy laws that "should" protect people from anything intrusive but who knows. Only thing I can say is the health insurance here goes head to head with the other top companies. I would say we have the advantage cause when it's slow you'll work 4 days a week and not have to be worried about getting enough days or tours worked to keep benefits intact.It’s been more than 14 years since I applied, but I don’t recall anything that stood out compared to other applications I’ve filled out. Are they asking for more specifics than other employers, or do you feel they’re being intrusive?
I believe it's 6% of previous years earnings but that would be better answered by someone who's worked longer here.Can you talk about profit sharing ?
I don't believe any health questions would be allowed on a application due to Hippa laws. They can ask you if you hold a current DOT Med card and when it expires. If they send you for a DOT med card that's where you would be asked a million health questions.Profit sharing varies year to year, but 6% is typical. I'm not sure about the application process as far as health questions go, but since Pitt is self insured and pays 100% of our insurance, they want the employees to invest in their own health. Preventative health, etc. I haven't noticed any problems with people that need to take extended time off for health issues.
They don’t want you on comp again. Some people make a habit of it. Costs the company money.Why should it matter if I was on comp ?
So if the pension has been cut how do guys retire from here ?
