    In Study after study the majority of people would say yes. the only people who disagree work for companies that treat their people well to begin with.

    this may be a loaded question but I would be interested in hearing from the herd.

    would you forego your next raise in exchange with being treated with courtesy and respect from your immediate supervisors?

    Nope...If I had to pick one or the other.....I'll check my feelings at the door and get my love at home.

    No, I get paid well to be treated how I'm treated, which is, actually, pretty good.

    I agree....all things considered, I get treated much better than I did my first year or 2. For the most part...I'm left alone.... which is exactly how I like it.

  5. Nope. I like to play games. If you want to screw with me I'll drop dimes grievances and a whole host of other things to get them back. They only pick on the mentally weak.

    Sometimes, I think they forget I work here, which is best possible scenario.

    Can't remember when the last time they screwed with me, over 5 years ago, probably.

    I think it would end up being a false choice. They keep the money, act nice for a short period of time and then crap all over you again.

    It's a pointless question. They would
    Never treat us any better. Keep my raises coming baby. I'm not a 35 year employee who has everything paid for.

    No...I'm the one on my line who gets it done. They dump everyone else's heavy routes that they can't handle on me. I have 2 trucks I load everyday....the other 2 (it was 3) change every week or two.

    If so I wouldn't need to pay my union dues. I have a union to protect me from harassment and hopefully
    Better my well being as long as the company is profitable.

    Most days, I don't see my immediate sups, and some days don't see my manager. That is fine with me, I do my job properly. Come in, do my job, leave, repeat 5 times(occasionally 6 times) per week.

    He must have autocorrect. I don't think he can even spell respect without it.

    Treat the Employees better, get better production, AND a better work environment as well.
    The raise stays, of course!

    I'll worry about respect from those I care about receiving it from on my own. Show me the money.

    My current management team treats me very well. However, I work in a small hub and I previously worked with all them before I became a driver and before they became driver sups. I'm also educated in basic psychology, business human relations and communication which really helps.
