Mandatory 14 hours per day for drivers, no matter what. Family issues do not matter when it comes to working the dock, they will want you on it

All money is not good money. Linehaul drivers can drive up to 600 miles turns and are expected to work the dock upon their return to their home terminal. If there is a minute left of their 14 they are mandated to exhaust the 14 hour clock. Imagine working all night Friday night then returning in the am from your run tired then finish your shift 10 am Saturday morning then trying to hang out with your family who already hadn't seen much of you Monday thru Friday because you were sleeping. Off weekends but too tired to participate in your own life.

Everyone is told about no overtime till 55 hours. If you still take the job don't complain.

55hrs is standard for drivers across the board to hit OT. But that same attitide above is what makes this place hard to work for, everyone complaining but no one taking action.

Long weekly hours with no overtime till 55 hours. Amazing they usually keep you at or just below 55 hours.

Long hours today and a half shift tomorrow. If you are friends with the supervisor, you can make a fair time card. On the other hand, if you believe in putting in your time and going home, they will keep you there all day while the supervisor's friends get to go home on time.
