Now lets look at the issue of live loading or unloading. Schneider for the most part, and most other trucking companies find it exceptable pactice to cheat the driver out of the pay they should be getting when docking for a live load, or unload. The company does not pay hours of service from the time you enter a companies recieving yard, and they all are aware of the fact they're robbing the drivers blind. The hours of service record the driver keeps should be showing "on duty" statis during these live loads if they comply with the law. The law says your on duty, but your company says your working for free. THIS KIND OF DOUBLE STANDARD IS NOTHING MORE THAN STEALLING FROM THE DRIVERS WAGES.
i'VE GIVEN A FEW EVERYDAY EXAMPLES OF COMPANY THEIFT AGAINST THE DRIVERS. IF YOU FEEL YOU HAVE THE ****** TO DEFEND THIS PACTICE, GO FOR IT. I'LL READ YOUR POST. AT THIS POINT AND TIME THESE TRUCKING COMPANIES ARE IN THE SAME BOAT AS MAYDOFF, AND NIXON. <<<<<<< I AM NOT A CROOK>>>>>>>>>>> LOL
Here's a real example of what happens when you work for SCHNEIDER NATIONAL. This doesnt happen everyday, but you'll see a variation of what I'll discribe 3 or 4 times a week.
You just did a live unload in a large city, and let dispatch know your empty. Dispatch sends you a work order to take your empty trailer to Joes dog food distribution, and do a live load of 46000 lbs. the expected load time is 2 hrs. Being in the same city you get no paid miles to go from your current location to Joes using Schneider miles. Being 46000 lbs you need to scale to make sure your legal. It took you 1 hr in traffic to reach joes, and you just drove 12 unpaid miles. You scaled the load and spent another hr driving 8 mile to the scale, scaling the load, and driving 8 mi back to get on route in heavy traffic. Your work order says to bring the load to the XYZ operation center and drop for relay. It's 14 miles paid miles to the schneider XYZ operation center. Congrates you just worked 4 hrs for Schneider, and got $5.00 in milage pay. You burned your 14 hr clock, and got almost nothing for 4 hrs of service to the company. DO THE MATH, you made $1.25 per hour working for schneider.
Organized theift by the trucking industry is everywhere, but that does not make it right. I know it's not just Schneider playing this game, and only used their name as an example of what is going on out there. It's my opinion, and we all have one, so I dont expect blanket agreement.
