JB Hunt Amazon contract driver being safe........not!
Just airing it out...
Maybe it’s full of airs?
I still don't understand why mileage jobs exist. Best I can figure, it might save the Company
30 min.? You could do the same thing if you allowed hourly to only take 30 min. meals. My 40 year
experience has been the Company does pretty much whatever they want eventually. Up to
and including layoff's or just cutting runs and have them reappear somewhere else or under
a different job number. My feeling about how much job opportunities and especially feeder
runs is pretty shocking compared to the last 15 years when we might get 1 to 2 new
seniority drivers who had been waiting years. I make way more now than I ever have and
we have 25 new positions posted. These are good times to be at UPS. And if you are willing,
you can add $50k a year to that $130k with a sleeper run. Think about that...In my building,
a $180k sleeper run goes begging to as little as 10 years seniority. I bitch a lot, but
find it difficult to say much right now.
I didn't have to either. Makes sense as we did for pkg also. Why do it again?
I won't pull a trailer with the wheels all the way back like that.
I used to pull them like that, but I was just cognizant when making turns. You do see that the guy is driving down the road with his doors open, right? I was putting gas in my pickup and I couldn't get a better pic of him.
Do I see the doors open? Yes, but how the hell do I know he's driving down the road? I thought he was just parked there.
You can't get past a weigh station here with the wheels like that on a single screw tractor.
I only posted the 1st pic cause it showed his doors clearly. Here he is making a right at an intersection.
He’s got a twin screw. I agree though, I never drive it with the tandems all the way back, twin screw or no.
Seen on an Amazon trailer at an Amazon facility.
You talking about the tires? Someone rubbed a curb, big deal. Flat spot on outer rear. Tread depth is a little low but I’ve moved way worse. That baby is good for another 2,000 miles at least. Yessir.
It's holding air, run it.
Anywhere else start cutting runs due to this pandemic? Newpa cut a good amount already. I also heard Carlisle shut down. Anyone else hear anything or is that just a rumor?
They cut our two mall runs this week, anyone could see that coming. If the bottom drops out next week I'm sure they'll put a few more on the chopping block.
Business as usual.
Local 804 sending 30 plus back to package.
They cut 10% here
Out of how many?
