    Well this ####### blows! Been out for 7 weeks 5 days, was scheduled to be home on the 25th but got back early. I was planning on taking 8 days off but it turns out that the portland oc only allows 5 consecutive days off but will occasionally give a 6th day if your out long. Complete BS. Just another way SNI screws you.

    Anyways, im gonna be looking at getting a local driving job on my time off. I'd like to leave a 2 week notice but dont know if I'll be able to depending when I need to start driving local. Will SNI still pay out vacation pay if im unable to give a full 2 week notice? Anyone know how far in advance vacation time has to be set and if its possible to use vacation time for a 2 week notice?

    I didn't have time to give a full 2 weeks notice, but I gave 1 week. Of course they send me to an area with no freight and It takes me 2 weeks to get home anyway. Getting my hourly M-F local job was the best decision I've made since getting my CDL

    They will pay out vacation time with no 2 week notice. You don't have to give them notice either. I gave them a few days notice while my truck was in the shop for a week and Maverick was calling asking for information. My DBL also assured me that I was welcome to come back any time even though I left on such short notice.

    Just push out your NAT 8 days in the future and disappear for 8 days. What are they going to do, fire you? LOL

    The company I worked for, it was the only way to get out. When vacation time came I cleaned the truck and got me a local job with Ryder. They like to put me under a load while I'm at home. So you can't leave. They get you with abandoning under load. Then put it on your DAC. Get your job. Then go on vacation. Get out quick. I even cleaned the truck out real good and took it to terminal. Make sure someone sees it nice and clean. Be safe. I wasn't worried about the vacation pay. I just wanted out.

    I'm right behind you. I can't take much more of this crap. You save their truck from damage and they still #####h and moan. They micro manage through the Qualcomm too much also. I'm currently looking for a local job before they try to hurt my DAC.

    Not to be a ### but did you request to be home 8 days? Must company's don't allow it unless u put in for vacation. Just because you have been out 2 months doesn't guarantee a week at home. And if you take that much time there's a high probability that they will have a another driver using that truck while your home.

    I actually pushed out my nat until 6/3 as that's what my home time was scheduled for. I was hoping to take the extra 2 days off since I was home earlier then planned. I called in to make sure I could start my home time early and have the extra days off and my dbl got all but hurt that I set my nat for 10 days off. He said it was against company policy to take more then 5 consecutive days off bit sometimes they can give 6 days off if your out extra long.

    Kind of pisses me off considering the only reason I was staying out for 8 weeks was to have 8 days off, also the fact I sent a message with my home time request which stated I was going to take 8 days off when I first hit the road yet he still accepted it...
