    we have a lot of givebacks to go to get down to where a lot of local non union companies are at, we SHOULD be turning away a lot of people otherwise we end up with the short bus crew.

    The new guy
    Don't let the giveback scare you, yes sucks , company is not going anywhere
    Insurance is not as good as it once was but it's company paid & #### good overall, don't overly concern yourself with hog board issues
    Wheel board sucks & seems appealing at first but once you have some time you won't like it
    I've been here 30 yrs & was with roadway 2 yrs
    It's still a good job & pays well & as long as they're using shiny wheels you may fall into the position on the board even as a new hire to be considered red circle protected so if you don't work you file for your 4 week average & you will usually get paid the difference if any shiny wheels went through your barn the company has paid out thousands & even if you don't work but are available you have insurance
    As for the guy that talked about severance neither company has ever done that unless you are management

    Friend o' mine just got his first paycheck from YRC.
    Take home $780.00 for 50+ hours.
    I wouldn't call that good pay.

    Start out pay is roughly.45/mile, $17.88 hr
    Before our April 1 increase
    My dad started here a little over a year ago his average was $13-1500, I run a bid that's 3336 miles there have been many weeks he's made more than I have with clock time he's made $21-2300, when you start if you're having trouble getting out or better runs ask each place to keep you out & you'll make better $ it's a little more of a sacrifice but sometimes you have to do what you have to good luck

    Can anyone elaborate on the Combo dock/driver gig for yrc? I've got a phone interview for the OKC terminal tomorrow morning. I understand it's dock work and driving, just wondering if it's More of one than the other.

    A local city driver their in OKC can tell you. Just depends on how short drivers they are at that location.
