    Thank you that's really helpful. Truck maintenance was one of my questions, I'm at estes now and we don't have a shop, it's really frustrating. West chester sounds good because they are building a shop and expanding, so if they keep hiring I could get some seniority. I live in Covington, so Walton would be better for commuting, but we keep talking about moving so who knows.

    Oh, gotcha. For some reason I assumed you lived on the Ohio side. Covington isn't bad at all though. Do you work at the Estes Barn on the north side? I'm sure you know that Old Dominion and Saia are also on the same street as Dayton Freight. Just don't go to that place with the yellow trucks next door to us!

    Took out a power line, internet, and cable line. I’ll let you guys know if cooper let’s me go ;p

    100% on a public road on asphalt.

    Safety always told me Florida requires all lines 15ft in air, and wasn’t our problem but let’s see what cooper says now that they’re part of swiftly-swift.

    Every time I’ve done that it was ruled an “incident”. Those don’t count against you here.

    Didn’t get a ticket, or anything management doesn’t seem to care. Was told by safety its not legally my problem, but they made me take pictures of everything kinda redundant given there’s a drive cam if you ask me.

    Well, just dropped a cabinet pallet. Gotta love a trailer park delivery in a pup with a 6 ft lift gate trying to palletjsck and lift gate a 3000lb skid that’s 12 ft long.

    normally I can teeter totter them to the ground; guess this one wasn’t haven it.

    Told not to help handle unload they will not pay for it. Sadly these loftgate cabinet deliveries are a regular thing.

    so are those wobble pallets of water. southeastern started taking the cabinet vendors away from us; guess SEFL didnt wanna go in a trailer park

    A 12’ skid that’s 3000 lbs and you were actually told not to hand unload it?

    It wouldn’t get delivered then if it were me.
