    Advice From Former SNI Drivers

    I am very happy with my current job and company. I can not see me EVER driving for another company.

    However, I am sitting on a job offer from a major company to work for around $30/hour. I can not really get into the exact details at this moment but in the next days as things unfold I will fill in the blanks.

    The question is this. The start date of the job is July 15, 2011. I would love to go straight to my DBL and tell him that I am leaving SNI, and give him full almost 2 months notice. I would love to stick around and help until they find a replacement, even train a new driver if needed. However, I do not want to get fired on the spot and go without work or income and insurance for two months. I also would like to be considered as someone that could be rehireable without any negative notes in my file or DAC on how I left. I could give the same story for a one month notice, or a two week notice, etc...The point is the same....

    What is your experience with leaving SNI on your terms?

    What are chances I will be let go on the spot?



    What are chances I can be deemed rehireable by SNI?

    What are chances that even with a written noticed delivered personally and electronically via email, that my DAC would negatively be affected?


    I want to do the honest and correct thing for SNI, but do not want to burn myself or my family in the process.

    I left close to a year ago. I really didn't want to, but circumstances at home made it impossible to stay. My DBL, my former DBL, as well as 3 other DBL's did all they could to help me. They all did their best to find something for me.

    I came back after 6 weeks FMLA. After being back 3 days, I got word that I needed to stay home, believe me, from a couple different agencies. I was not let go on the spot.

    If you've got a decent record, there shouldn't be a problem.

    What are chances that even with a written noticed delivered personally and electronically via email, that my DAC would negatively be affected?
    My DAC was not negatively impacted at all.

    Be honest, up front and professional with them.

    I had a very good working relationship with the three DBL's I had while there. They all knew, in my case, I had no choice but to leave. I feel even now, that all I'd have to do is make a phone call, and would be back in Greenbay next week.
    One thing I learned, and it still stuns me somewhat, is SNI never lied to me, and I was always treated decently. They were like that to me, and I can't see not treating them any different. It's a two way street.
    Just explain why, in person, and follow up with a letter of resignation.
    Good luck on your new job, sounds like ya fell into it.
