Bad attitudes and high pressure put on dispatch and drivers
Driver (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – March 27, 2017
Long hours and some weekends. On call everyday for many. At a moments notice you may be required by the threat of losing your job to give up your day and off family plans and work a 6th day up to 14 hrs. Sometimes trying to get a day off for personal reasons may be refused depending on the availability of drivers based upon seniority.
Dispatchers consistently making mistakes on routing, over weight on axles, forcing drivers out of seniority on runs and making excuses for their own demise.
Good pay and benefits
No family time and NO personal life expectations by mngmt.
