    Heard a bunch of supervisors from out-of-state were sent to Albany this week to run routes. Building is outdated and can't keep up with the holiday crush. The building looks small on Google Earth so they're lucky we've had good weather so far.
     
  2. Sounds like many of our buildings.

    The same sups I am sure that write people up for missing the handrail one time but now in "let's do what it takes to get done" mode.

    It is actually in Latham. It is a good sized facility w/4 centers.

    They will be running Sunday sorts for the remainder of Peak.

    We have not heard anything about this at our center.

    OK, that makes sense.
    The Latham building looks more like the building described to me then the Albany one.
    The building I was looking at is only 5 miles WSW of the Latham facility.

    There is only one UPS facility in that area.
     
  10. Our preload had been working 10 hour shifts and they still can't get wrapped.

    How safe is sups to drive Saturday when they worked 60 plus hours already?

    I honestly can't wrap my head around a 10hr preload...The longest preload we ever had at our center was 8hrs and that only happened one time in 1997. God lord, was that a miserable experience.

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

    Actually saw my center manager jump out of the package car onto ice and bust his ass my first peak.
