    SAIA is great company and pays very well. They do have driver facing cameras but you get accustomed to them. Just follow the rules and don’t mention the union and you could have a long prosperous career. Go for it! Like White said .. you have nothing to lose.

    A good driver should not be worried about a camera. Whether it's a forward or driver facing..... I look at it as it's there for my protection from other idiots.

    We are supposed to be professionals.

    If think it's a joke then I can tell that either you are new to the profession or you are one of the drivers that needs to have a camera on you.

    There is nothing I do that I have to worry about a camera over.

    Get use to it...... the insurance companies are mandating them.

    If the accident is not your fault what is the problem.

    Don’t need no camera facin inside to figger that out. Can do that just fine with one facin out.

    Maybe dumbass millenials can’t but some of us can handle our jobs without bein watched and got safe drivin awards to prove it.

    “But Mithter Blade, that’s unpothable. Howdya drive without no camera up yer butt??”

    I don’t need cattleprods to not wreck the truck. Whoever does oughta replaced without punishin the rest of us.

    Hell, I even yap on the CB all day long in mine. OH MY GOD!!! OH THE HUMANITY!!! OH THE POLITICAL INCORRECTNESS!!!

    Clean driving record and no accidents and they will probably hire you on the spot. I work out of Jcy which is 95 miles east and we are so busy we can’t hardly get a day off
