Like all trucking companies management has no clue about the realities a daily driver faces - obviously because they do not have commercial driver's licenses - and they were never drivers - typical of the industry. Being a Teamsters shop there are various clicks within the drivers personnel. There are a lot of two-faced turncoat drivers that will be nice to your face and talk nonsense behind your back don't try to be liked by everyone be yourself and you will get along ok.
Well I've been a Shortline driver terminal 881 Salt Lake City Utah for 10 months this week - and there are actually two different levels of effort that I see. The guys that have been there 10 20 30 years work at a very slow and steady pace - do the absolute bare minimum - and don't exhibit much hustle - and no sense of urgency. The newer drivers those who have been there a year or two or maybe three - Hustle - and for the most part do whatever they can do to get it done. But that's just because they came with Hustle from their previous job - and believe it's the way to do things. But the generational older Teamsters guys who've been there for decades - figured out how to work slow and easy and keep their job, of course protected by the Teamsters Union.
