That's their fault, 20.00 an hour for a tow motor jockey isn't bad. It's never too late to quit once they find out the pay difference. We've seen many TL drivers go back to TL realizing home daily isn't as sweet as they thought.
There was a certain HR person that used that phrase in a driver meeting and said "If you don't like it, QUIT". This caused an outrage and he was called on it. He had to personally call all drivers that were in attendance when he said it and apologize to them. With the shallow thinking that is pervasive throughout the upper echelons of this outfit, this is a phrase that they default to when they get asked a question that they can't answer or that they have been instructed to avoid answering; a dodge if you will.I heard it many times in my early career.
Our shop foreman was talking to the tire supplier this past week while I was in the office talking to him. He told the tire distributor "I'm just giving you a heads up that AE was going to low profile tires, starting with the steers and that the tire distributor will not be out of the loop, just a heads up". As for reprogramming, I haven't a clue. So I guess it is coming.Ok here's a good one. All our new auto daycabs, both makes have low pro tires. I was told that the shop will phase out all high pro tires and replace with low pros. Auto's only have the low pro's, my 10 speed has 11R/22.5, the new ones have 295/72/22.5's. That also will include a computer reprogram, anyone hearing this? I know SEFL has done something similar.I might have my numbers jungled up.
Must of....since they are strecthing pennies.....I wonder why they would go thru the trouble of stocking 2 different style of 22.5 tires. BTW wait till you get on wet roads or slushy ice roads with those puppies. Food grade outfits have been running them for years! I'd stick with the 11r22.5Jeepman did you miss me saying ALL new auto daycabs have lo pro's from the factory?
I asked if I could and was told that not until all are trained on using them and the office can read them, so no I haven't heard of when that will happen. I'm all for it personally, less paperwork and save at least 45 minutes a week logging.
WHEN I went to electronic logs,over two years ago...I received.......0 training....got a copy of a copy of the instructions......Gee the office can't read a computor screen....maybe they should go over to truckload dispatch and check them out....BTW a number of the dedicated folks are not using them.....care to take a guess why not!
They are starting out with the steers and after they build up the stock they will go to drives and trailers. Frankly, I am surprised they aren't converting to super singles.Must of....since they are strecthing pennies.....I wonder why they would go thru the trouble of stocking 2 different style of 22.5 tires.
