    Should be fun this week as sudden closings pop up and management makes wacky splits. Friday should be especially fun as extra pick up's are piled on. Why not work everyone and get us all in 8 to 9 hours?

    This is by far the stupidest week of the year. Add in the new law that takes place today and I'm betting its one for the ages.

    Cutting a bunch of routes trying to claim volume will be so much lighter which never happens

    I asked for Friday off because it's going to be so light. I was sure they'd be looking for people to take the day.
    My boss says, "Oh no, it's going to be a super big day".

    Sure, pal.....

  14. I was hoping the Company would just stay closed for Friday the 5th, unpaid for all employees.

    I took an option day for Friday and on vacation next week, so my vacation starts after I clock out Wed. morning.

    Our start time is 6:15 p.m on Friday. That's the latest it's ever been in the nine years I've worked there.
    I hope they have enough work for us three and a halfers!!!!!
     

  16. I hope its light, 6 weeks ago i asked my supervisor if I could get the 5th off, he said no.
    I have an 8 hour drive after preload, i hope to get out before 7:30.


    Thanks,

    That is too easy. MGMT "thinks" they have a better plan when they actually don't.. But they will never listen

    9 drivers on vacation this week in my center and who knows how many more are going to call in on Friday. Yes Friday is going to be a bad day for those that have to work.
