I absolutely loved hearing that phone ring at night.
Conway ( non-union) is another story... there were no simple night calls for me there... they actually had their drivers do the simple things.
being a non-union company, they also had much better equipment.. such as trucks with electric mirrors

it is a fine line we walk.....paying enough to get good people, and retain them
but not overpaying to keep the profit rolling
