I worked the extra board for 10 yrs. until I was able to get a regular run, there is a two hour window which means you have two hours to report to your terminal and if you have a husband, wife, girl-boy friend or kids forget it. Spending time with family on birthdays or holidays forget it. Your entire life changes !
Hire professional dispatchers. Utilize workers in that area. And, give extra board drivers two consecutive days off a week at home (not traveling home, but, at home). People will bust their hind parts if they could see their family, have doctor appointments, pay Bill's, take care of home.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Greyhound a better place to work?
Stay positive and you’re doing a good job you can teach me some things just keep on loving people love your work and be blessed
