Get ready to bend over its gonna be a long week
Dude I know I'm getting the lube as I type this
Delaware is getting slammed so there goes newark freight times
It's days like these I'm like torn as to what to do I mean I'll go in tomorrow morning in Newburgh ny and it's supposed to start early here but not get bad until the afternoon, but even then it might get bad earlier, and I know dispatch will want me to go out but I feel it's a HUGE risk to my own license if I say hey I think it's dangerous and I'm gonna run into problems they'll brake my chops BUT if I "people please" and attempt to make a run and God forbid I get in an accident or get stuck which they consider same thing they'll blame me because it's always the drivers call for safety it's like a lose lose best case scenario I get put up in a hotel for the night....funny thing is all this "safety stuff" I feel a lot of time is just to cover company's rear end....I'm ups freight though not sure how it's works for u FedEx and ups package guys, I'm sure it's equally crappy, drive safely!
We usually get a service disruption depending on how bad the weather is, but of course they always want you to go out..that might be mean 2 hours after you get dispatched they call everyone back but no matter what you go
It is but only 100% of the time.
I feel like when it's snowing its the only time they actually care about safety. We get service disruptions and get told to take our time and just try to get everything off
Snow is NO EXCUSE FOR A LATE!!!!!
Whenever it snows ANYWHERE, it means late freight for us.
Even if it's not snowing, if it's winter the freight is late.
Though tomorrow I'm guessing will be a you better get out there and get everything off. 4 hours later..."everyone come back conditions are no longer safe"
Lmfao! Ahh Its days like this Im glad I made the decision NOT to go to college and work with my body
Enjoy, 70 degrees here. I think I will lay out! Lol
We never get that at Ground. We ask "are we weather exempt today?" And they don't know until 15:00. Could be dumping snow and they won't tell you it's ok to use the weather code. I've stopped asking and just tell my guys to come in when it starts getting too sketchy. Management does not care about safety. I've been there for a long time and have never had management tell me to come in because of snow.
We get service disruptions pretty easily at my station. One time last year my station refused to to leave the building and we shut down. Good day
Same thing happened at my station one day last winter.
It was one storm last year where we got 12inches in about a 6 hour period and they thought they could get us to leave, they were lucky anyone showed up
Here in the Boston area the weather service warns against all unnecessary travel past Monday afternoon. I don't imagine being able to get to my station on Tuesday.
You guys up in Boston are getting slammed
they might fire you if you don't come in. You need to come in. You did say this is a great company and you are treated well no?
