In Tulsa, Ok on 03/19/10 around 5:30 pm while driving south on highway 169 a Roadway truck almost ran into the back of my car. I was driving 55 MPH in at the beginning of a construction zone ( the posted speed limit). The truck driver hit his/her brakes and slowed down to the speed limit less than 5 feet from my rear bumper. Then preceded to press my to speed. The cab # was either 21567 or 25167.
Transit Systems, Inc. was the arranger, but Roadway was the carrier. AWFUL! Lost entire shipment and when finally delivered, EVERYTHING (all 8 pieces) were damaged. Two of the pieces were metal bedframes. How do you damage a metal bedframe? I had wrapped an LCD TV (in its original new packaging) completely in shrink wrap to avoid "prying eyes". Not only did Roadway remove the wrap, they actually OPENED the sealed box and removed the power cord so I couldn't test it. Deplorable. I am not bothering with a claim because I know how they hide behind the DOT.
Waiting for a delivery and apparently yellow freight and roadway have merged. Item shipped to yellow and they do not service my area. Roadway finally calls to set delivery date and I take the day from work only to be called and advised that they can't delivery on the scheduled date. They are only 25 minutes from my house but won't accomidate me. Poor, poor customer service! I can take a lot but customer service is important to me and the lack thereof.
My husband has worked for Roadway for 9 years.He was transferred to another terminal and we spent a great deal of money relocating.6 weeks later they laid him off.The union does not protect the employees and the labor practices of this company are horrible.There is absolutely no job stability or certainty working for these people.I hate Roadway. Since Yellow bought the company it is WORSE.
You do not want to work for these idiots unless you want a 1000% stress level.Roadway=BADWAY!!! We are now in great financial stress because of this.
How can you relocate an employee 400 miles and then lay them off after 6 weeks?? UNFAIR!!!
