We are a safety first company. We are in the process of putting outward-facing cameras in all of our company trucks. 80 percent of car-truck crashes are caused by the car driver (according to the ATA). The purpose of the cameras is to protect our drivers when cars are travelling unsafely and creating unsafe situations.
We're happy to talk about how our cameras work and how we use the videos to improve situational awareness and safety for all of our drivers. For anyone with questions, we would ask them to contact their fleet manager or operations manager.
We've found that when drivers take the time to understand the cameras and their function, they appreciate having concrete evidence when a car is travelling unsafely around their truck.
Thank you for your review. Drivers are extremely valuable to us, and we were named Best Fleets to Drive For in 2017 for the 3rd year in a row. This award is based on a survey of our own drivers.
We have a very clear chain of command in our operations department. Your fleet manager reports to an operations manager and on up the chain of command. You are welcome to talk with anyone you want in the company, and our open-door policy allows you to meet with anyone in the company including the CEO.
If you're having issues with communication, please let us know. If you're not sure who to call, please call our Driver Care Center at 253-538-4431, and we will help you figure it out.
Thank you for your feedback. It sounds like we are not meeting your expectations, and we would like to hear more from you for how you think we can improve. Please engage with your manager, director, and/or vice president.
We are invested in building a better place to work – as one team, which means we need everyone to engage, speak up and help us improve. We need shared trust in order to have a strong team, and we look forward to you stepping up and taking leadership in your role.
In our driving jobs, we work to provide predictability. When a regional driver starts with us, they choose their home time. Regional jobs can be out 5-7 days, 10-14 days, or longer if the driver chooses. It's up to the driver to decide what works best for them and their home life. If you're feeling like you need more predictability in your schedule, ask your fleet manager about any dedicated or local opportunities near you. Thanks for writing.
