This post is mostly a vent.
I got transferred to a yard much closer to home. Awesome.
My new crew leader is fine. The equipment driver is someone Iv worked with and get along with.
My crew leader has to go work in my old yard for two days during my first week. When he comes back he starts bad talking all my old coworker friends, and it turns out he was talking trash about me too.
He told one of the guys at my old yard that if I’m still on his crew he will quit. Then this Friday he turned in his truck, chainsaws, and all the company equipment. He’s been with the company for more than 10 years.
I’m not the hardest worker, but I’m consistently working. He expects me to run full speed in ice/snow because he wants takes safety shortcuts. Safety is supposed to be number one priority, but he’s rushing for production. The owners want us to take time and do things safe.
