    Has anyone heard if they're gonna continue the extra $.02/mile on the quarterly bonus? Last I heard, it was only thru the 1st 2 quarters of the year.

    Do you mean back to the regular $.02 bonus, or they are keeping the extra $.02 another quarter?

    Thanks...I finally got to see this weeks weekly update that was posted yesterday. Wish I would've watched it first instead if the latest Q&A video...which did no good...after the 3rd 'recruiting bonus' spew, I turned the Q&A off and quit waisting my time. Most of the Q&A is bogus anyway. The questions are phrased using terms no driver uses out here, only management sitting behind the desk. I did get a good laugh when they said something along the lines of having excellently spec'd equipment...I laughed so hard I dropped my phone. Of course, I also turned off the weekly update as well because they started the recruiting b.s. there as well. Dear Christ, Lincoln...give the recruiting message a break...WE KNOW ABOUT THE RECRUITING BONUS.. endlessly repeating it only annoys us like the kid in the back seat repeating 'are we there yet'. I got 3 recruiting messages in 2 days, 2 of which came from Deland.

    So Crete is all Ga-Ga on the new KW’s.
    I guess they ordered 150.
    They are equipped with more safety “crap” like lane keeping assist. I had this on my new car,and I was having to fight the steeering because it was trying to stay in the center of lane.I was able to turn it off on my car.
    When I first started with them,I figured to retire at 65,but got this new truck that wants to help me drive,so I dropped it to 62 retirement age.

    Some of the drivers in the Lincoln driver's trailer were saying something about the new Freightliners are supposed to be equipped with that governor override where you can exceed the 65 mph governor for a certain amount of time per day. Not sure if it's true, but would be nice.
     
    O.Henry Thanks this.
