    So I had a coaching trip today with the big boss. I passed it, which was good so I'm good for another 6 months. Heavy route today too, 1023 cases for 20,600.

    The big boss said I was one of the heavier routes that left the yard today.

    You were suspected of milking the clock or something?

    Haha, it’s policy they have to do a trip every 6months the bosses boss holds them to that. He was just doing his job.

    You guys in LTL probably don’t get coaching trips do you?

    At FxF everyone gets one after the first 60 days in the job, then I think that’s it.

    Well your managers are way behind then lol. They’ve all been out doing everyone at our yard. The ATMs get graded on it by the company. It’s supposed to be one every 6 months.

    In Florida back in 2016 they we’re doing coaching trips like every 6 weeks now I don’t know if that’s still going on. I think that got some resistance from ground level management.
