    Looking for Hacks, advice, tips and tricks for packet. Coming from pre-load onto my 30 day packet. Tomorrow is my sixth day and since day one it has been 12 hour days. Looking to better my scores/SPOR...
     
  2. I will tell you the same thing I tell all the newbies. Don't run but be in a hurry. If you go too fast you end up making mistakes or making a bad decision. Take a minute or two and organize your truck and push the packages towards the cab.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Take your break while organizing your truck.

    Let your customers know you'll be in a hurry for the next 30 days. You're not being rude just trying to make time.

    I can trace the map of my route from scratch paper. I'm wondering what study methods y'all use when going out on new route? I'm TCD so I THINK I'll be going blind often. Right now I'm only worried about the next 25 days and graduating from packet.

    Brownslave that actually helps. I get caught to often trying not to be rude.
     
  8. Are they keeping you on the same route while you qualify?

    When I use to go on a different route I would google map the roads that helped a whole lot.

    Yes I will be on same route for the next 25 days. Most other trainees get a couple of businesses and 80 stops of resies. I have 90% businesses spread out all over the place. 8:00 comes around I finally get my resies and deliver them like hot cakes.

  14. Use the reply button it makes it much easier to understand who you are talking to.

    I delivered 37 60# boxes and my mentor said I should have chalked them up as 70+ to help my SPOR... Instantly I realized I was missing out on tips and tricks. I could tell he wanted to explain but couldn't..
