    I hope you X guys get paid while you wait. Not the case with Ground. Waiting for freight 2-3 hours late was a common occurance in bad weather, yet you were still expected to "clean' no matter if you had an code 82 weather exception or not.

    Of course managers will try to get you to go on break while waiting instead of using the delay code or waiting on CTV code. thanks, I'll take my break at lunch time.

    Yep. All it takes is a few rookies to go along with it and management saves some sort hours.

    Or they just call us at home and tell us to not report in until whenever

    Wait for freight? You mean launch at 8:30 to go make "service" on p1 and then have someone shuttle us work at 1:45 in the afternoon. Sums up my day yesterday

    Or send a PP message. Got that today, start 90 minutes late. I'll be punching at my regular start time. Give me a broom.

    Yep. Show-up, say you are ready to work as scheduled, and go into a Code 43.

    We had a 15 min late start today and you should have seen the look of horror on one courier's face when I punched in at my scheduled (normal) start time. I ended up spending my first 20 min rebooting my PP and trying to get it to load...only to end up taking another one. I think only 2 of us clocked in at our scheduled time today :confused:
