    I have been working at Old Dominion Freight full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company, as we all know, with great benefits, pay, etc.

    Cons

    Problem areas that cause drivers to shift away from a "team" mentality to an "every man for himself" mentality. Specifically unassigned trucks. I know, I know, they're all green and white. But there IS a difference. Some of us drivers (P&D and line haul) keep our truck interior cleaned up and others leave ankle deep trash and crumbs everywhere. Some have no working air conditioning. More importantly, though, is the problem of a veteran P&D driver being told to use a specific truck for his route that day for mechanical reliability reasons. That driver goes to get the truck and witnesses one of the recent new hires (who was swapping trailers at multiple locations that day) flying through the lot at an unsafe speed, dropping his trailer, jumping out of the truck he was in, and literally sprinting to take the truck the P&D driver was just told by management to take on his distant route. So the P&D driver had to take the other truck that had no AC working and go run a long, heavy route. This happened this week. It is but one example of constant issues with drivers having no regard for other drivers. Rude, disrespectful co-workers will take a truck even if another driver has just put his stuff in it for the day. I have personally had drivers take off with my stuff in the truck before I come out with my manifests to leave. Lunch, supplies, everything gone til they return at the end of the day. I've even seen them take trucks that have a visible tag signed by the TM stating that the truck is limited to be used by two specific P&D and line haul drivers.

    Advice to Management

    While I can see how there could be issues with having assigned trucks, it would certainly be a benefit to the drivers who've put in 5 years, 10 years, and up, to be given some kind of deference over newer hires. We've all put in our time and shown our loyalty with our sweat and hard work - the new hires need to do the same. Anything that causes this "look out for #1" mentality has got to go. It's bad for morale and unity. Assigned trucks would also keep each driver accountable for reporting mechanical issues, daily inspections, and general cleanliness and upkeep of the interior of the truck. Please consider this. Also, one more thing - when work is slow and some local drivers need to be called to stay home - give us veteran P & D drivers the option of staying home or working instead of just calling and telling us to stay home and working the newbies in our place. One of my coworkers had only 7 full weeks in the first five months of this year. Some of us family guys cannot afford to have that happen. We've given a lot to a very physically demanding job - almost a thankless job - so these are a couple of simple, no/low-cost perks that would show us we are appreciated for our loyalty, longevity, hard work, and for being the front line people who represent this company to the customer face-to-face on a daily basis. Thanks for your consideration of my comments.
