Most of our hubs best drivers have already quit since last peak and the remaining ones are heading out the door as we speak. Today was one of my friends last day, and as I look around there are more drivers I don't know than I do. Hell. a lot of contractors are gone as well. One contractor told me he was tired of X putting their hand and fingers in a business that is supposed to be his, nuff said. These new drivers are already complaining about HD going from 6000 to 8000 packages a day, wait till peak and they can't even see their truck for all the Walmart boxes. Early numbers are showing between 16 and 20 thousand per day, that's cause for some no shows for sure. We had a driver this week deliver about 25 or 30 stops then quit without saying a word to anyone, parked the truck in the hub with almost 80 stops inside. Another guy did that a couple of months ago and he is still there, working for another contractor. We also had a driver fired 3 times, once for cussing out a customer, he's finally gone, but come on, it took three times to get rid of him ? Because of the mass exodus, this is what FedEx is reduced to accepting, anyone willing to turn the key to the on position is hired. Past infractions no matter how serious no longer matter. These new guys have no idea what's in store, not getting out till after 9.30 am, working way past dark, working 6 days straight, and trying to pack 600 cubic feet of packages into a 400 cubic feet van. The hub doesn't hire temps anymore so contractors have to comb through the sewer to find enough bodies to put behind the wheel, and what they have been finding ain't pretty. Add to that the breakdowns, tractor trailer loads of packages that will be brought back each day, tempers on high, and managers that have no clue what they are doing and this should be a peak to remember.
