With the help of "Bruce" through a comment on this post we have modified the Pay History tool to provide a way for employees to see pay information from the previous year. To use this navigate to myPortal - Employee Resources - Employee Pay History. There is a parameter for the report which reads "Days Back" - select the option from this list and click update.

Due to the responses to the auto-enrollment notice that we discussed a few months ago, we have decided to not introduce that option at this time for the 401k Plan for our company.  We did have a number of associates newly enroll in the plan as an active participant as part of this effort, and we will be honoring those enrollments starting in January 2011.  If you did have an interest in participating in the 401k plan as an auto-enrollee at 4%, you still have time to enroll online at www.principal.com by using the Plan contract # 7-05090.   Please remember that you also have t...

As we approach the last month of 2010, FirstFleet wanted to offer one last reminder to all associates the opportunity to enroll in the 401k Plan for 2011!  As you have heard the past two months, if you have not enrolled in the 401k Plan in the past, you can do nothing and still be enrolled with an automatic contribution weekly of 4% that will start in January 2011.  Morever, you can also act now and contribute at a % or $ that best fits your needs.   Everyone has the opportunity to enroll at any % or $$ amount they are comfortable contributing to their 401k account.  ...

The Truckload Carriers Association has named one of our very own as it’s most recent Highway Angel! William Whitehead out of our Cleveland, TN terminal recently witnessed a passenger vehicle collide with a deer, lose control and come to a stop in the median where it caught on fire. Bill made sure the passengers got out of the car and assisted in extinguishing the fire.   Bill says “I have a daughter who is a single mother, and I hope someone would help her out if she ever needed it”.   For his efforts above and beyond Bill has received the Highway Angel certificate, a lap...

All drivers need Space and Visibility to avoid hazards while driving. 8-12 seconds of eye lead time is recommended at all times. If visibility is reduced because of fog, rain, snow, or sleet, make the adjustment and slow down! Chances are good that if you don’t see an obstacle soon enough – you will hit it!

We have added a new feature to our website - a video library. To start with we have added a couple of great selections.  Cummins has provided us with a video, ”Driver Training 2010” that encompasses new information on what the new Cummins engine does for you, the driver, and how to take advantage of these features.  The other video covers DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) and how the Aftertreatment system works. Both of these are VERY important.  ALL operations personnel need to be very familiar with these systems.  Diesel has just reached a new two year high! Please take advant...
