    Got my second safe driver award recently since being at express. For the first one years ago, I was able to choose from a list of prizes. This time around though, was told by management the prizes were taken away. Got a cool plaque though! Lol

    I got a plaque about 10 years ago for something. Threw it in the garbage can and went on my way.

    The "prizes" were junk anyway, you're not really missing anything.

    That and a buck fifty nine will get you a bitter tasting cup of coffee at the convenience store.

    They can use those "prizes" for toilet paper.

    Told a guy at my current station I haven't accepted an award in over 10 years. Should've seen the shocked look.

    When gold was high, a lot of people sold their old safe driving awards. I no longer accept anything from the company except a check.

    They did away with our safe driving and years of service awards for other than milestone years (5 year increments).

    I don't need, or want, their Cracker Jack prizes.

    This was the "Cracker Jack prize" that I received for my 25 years of service award.

    You could buy the same bike at Walmart for 99 bucks.

    My reward for doing my job correctly and safely is a paycheck and awesome benefits. And occasionally stale donuts when we go a month without an incident.

    I am on the Ground side, just curious what would be considered a good compensation for a year of safe driving for you guys.

    silenze Lunch is the best part of the day

    100$ cash. What a nice contractor may give you? 20$ gift card. What you will probably get? Nothing

    You need to be more specific on whether you are talking about a total years worth of compensation or just a years worth of safe driving. If it's for a year of safe driving that value is whatever the contractor thinks it's worth. Many of them will simply say that that specific value is factored into your daily pay. Other words don't expect anything in the way of meaningful compensation. The best thing he can do for you is to specifically mention your safe driving record on a letter of recommendation you can take with you to your next job interview.

    They claim the retail value was $250 but it should be closer to $150.

    It's actually a very good bike that I use a lot.

    The question was to the drivers: What do YOU think would be a worthy reward for you for a year of safe driving.
