T force is failing hard, its still punishing hard workers and rewarding the lazy, doing everything the ups way. Ive been here since 2003, the motor cargo days, i saw it all happen, and its happening again. Our leadership, the guys T-force put in charge, are the same out of touch, arrogant upsers.

So here I am, watching myself getting thrown under the bus again. Watching the new hires make more than me, with a sign on bonus! Way to boost morale! I did't get paid for last week, may not get paid at all before Christmas.

Meanwhile, ALL of my terminals forklifts have 20,000 hours, we have not a single extra truck. We are forced to use this ridiculous ECD that is so slow and inaccurate that we need extra employees to make up for the incompetence.

I have never seen morale so low, and it was extremely poor before T Force.

T force is trying very hard to make as many enemys as possible, just like UPS!

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

What a useless first post. Axe to grind maybe?

How did this one get approved?

You threw them under the bus...and then you claim you want to save them? JV.

We are drivers here. The point of this site is to assist people trying to get a good start on a driving career.

I think you took a wrong turn and are in the wrong room.

Robert / OP:

Wish you the best. Maybe Big Scott (CFI's biggest fan,) will show up in defense. He's been with CFI for a few years, and trains for them. Not sure which branch of T'Force you work for (seems the UPS side?) but ... look into CFI if nothing else; and read some of Big Scott's threads, perhaps.

Best to ya!

ps: Many acquisitions have a few bumps in the road to success; just as do, new jobs!

Sounds like a complete failure...but not T-Force.

I'll come to your defense here a bit, most everyone here is a OTR driver so I don't think they realize how toxic a terminal can get. I work for OD before I started my terminal was supposedly pretty toxic and morale was in the toliet. Corporate finally stepped in and removed the TM and Ops manager and it made a huge improvement over night from what I heard. Fortunately this all happened like 2 months before I started and by then morale was vastly improved.

We added 30 new drivers at my terminal this year and 0 additional trucks so we are experiencing the same thing when it comes to spare trucks. New trucks are hard to come by right now, so I'd give them more time and see where you stand then.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Im sorry you feel that way, but if TFI doesnt know what is going on, it cant be fixed. What I am writing here is felt by many in the company. If we dont speak up, our company will close. I kept quiet when UPS bought Motor Cargo and immediately began to destroy it, and I see the same happening now. We have no way to speak with anyone that cares. My hope, is that someone from TFI will see this and look into the massive problems that exist. Feel free to delete my post moderator, It was intended with just enough malice to get attention.
