    nobody is that good or non-replaceable.

    you either follow the rules as an employee, or get out, and go on your own..

    then good luck, talking to your customers that way...

    can you say theses sentences..??

    1) where does the welfare line start at?

    2) i am out of work, can you allow me to not make my truck payments?

    Linehaul is part of LTL. City, or P&D to some, is the other part.

    I thought the line haul was full load transfers.

    Depends on the company.

    Estes and R&L are easy to run linehaul for.

    Saia and XPO are detestable for a multitude of reasons from cameras to forced routing.

    At FedEx Freight and Pitt Ohio you won’t have a camera in your face, but you’ll still need permission to detour around an accident.

    It is... all the freight the city guys pick up during the day.

    I like getting a work uniform. Why ruin my clothes at work. Job I got now gives us decent work pants. They get rotatated into my work clothes at home.

    Some companies that require uniforms will tell you to go home, if you show up without a uniform;
    "Take a few days off; we'll be in touch."

    The moment anybody say's 'they are too good to get rid of', 1 breath after that is the moment they become replaceable.

    According to someone who used to be a member here, “nothing says ‘owned’ like a uniform.” :rolleyes:
