    Today wasn't bad, we finished up 440 stops in 9.5 hours. My driver texted me, said we're looking at over 500 stops tomorrow. It's gonna be a long day, I think.
    What's your day looking like?

    440 in 9.5 is one stop every 1.2 mins. I had 230 stops today with 436 pkgs. I could not walk through my truck until about 3 pm. So unless you had 1 pkg per stop at every stop I think you are confusing stops with packages.

    I have only seen 1 truck in my center this year with over 500 pkgs but close to 200 were sure-post to the post office on that guy's route and another 75+ were envelopes to 1 buss all in a tote. If you two actually get 500 in the truck tomorrow I'd be surprised!

    Sounds like someone is set for an early retirement.

    273 stops, 524 pieces, late air. 9 hours of helper time, who spent most of the day watching me dig for the next package (and curse A LOT!). Actually had 287 stops - bought back 14 at 9pm.

    Afraid not. 28ft package car, a tad over 600 packages yesterday. I personally don't mind, only another week of this and I'll be done with this till next Peak.

    On my route during non peak times, 500 stops would equate to around 9-10 days worth of work. At peak time your still looking at 5-6 days worth of work. Thats insane. My heaviest day of peak was 111 stops, 279 pieces, 12.5 hour day, 295 miles, 6 ecd's, 2 late air, helper for 10 hours.

    440 stops-9.5 hrs? Why don't you quit sluffing off and pull your share of the load? The others at your center are working 11-12 hours a day. You should be doing at least 740 stops.

    You wouldn't get 500 stops in my truck. Even if you tried to jam them in my 800 I would kick a crap load of them back out onto the belt before I left. Figuratively speaking. Not getting that many done unless I'm out till 10 PM, and that's a no-no out this way.

    You're making my 150-180 peak stops seem so measly. Today I had 51 stops off at 2pm (5 hours in) and then another 130 from 2pm-7pm with my helper. I do A LOT of bulk in the AM.

    We had a guy do 454 in Roswell yesterday. I know this is 100% true as I saw his DIAD as I was walking out at 9:30. Funny thing is we are a bonus center, what's even funnier is he's PT and doesn't get paid on it, 3.84hrs scratch on the OR.

    240 stops. About 30% of the stops are apartments where you have to attempt at each apartment and indirect to the office if the customer isn't home. It comes off slowly unless you're a ninja. Along with 15 pickups which start at 15:00.

    Been getting off at around 21:30 every night for the past week.

    Whoot! Whoot!
