    I'm a new driver (32 days) and I would like to ask the more experienced drivers what they know about this subject. I've heard you should take credit for over-weights and stairs to apartments. I've also heard something about extra meetings in the AM. How do we actually enter this information into the diad to get credit for them? And what are other commonly overlooked credits that we can use? Not looking to falsify, just to get credits where they are due.
    Thank you!

    Just do your job and don't worry about time allowance credits.

    I worry because I'm still working towards my 40 days and they are looking to make sure I'm at least scratch every day. More often than none, I am, but sometimes my day is not as smooth.

    In 27 years I have yet to see anyone fired for being overallowed, but I have seen several people fired for fraudulently taking "credit" without permission.

    If you are new, just accept the reality that the "allowances" were never intended to be fair or realistic in the first place and that your management will bitch at you regardless of what you do so you might as well get used to it.

    Rather than focus on negligible time allowance credits, focus on your delivery routine.

    If you do put in overweights go to special accounts put in the number of over 70 packages... one new guy put in the weight and was talking credit for hundreds of them every day and almost lost his job

    Drivers have also been fired for falsifying mileage. Having starting miles less than the ending miles of the same vehicle from the day before. That is automatically flagged and shows on a report if it occurs.

    Taking credit for over 70s and such is part of the methods. Coding out time for extra AM/PM meetings is only allowed with permission from management. Next to the field where you enter an apartment/suite number is a field to enter what floor you're delivering to.

    Taking credit for over 70's IS part of methods but not padding time allowances by falsely entering too many.
     
  10. Roll back. not like Walmart.
    But they do give you a 2 mile variance. as hinted by my sup.

    How do we get credit for stairs to apartments? Is it the under the "FL" section in the stop?

    I knew there was a 1 mile variance allowed but not 2.

    This concerns me because I forgot to get starting mileage on Friday. I just guessed at it after getting on area. I probably should have just entered in what it was at that first stop... Hope it blows over and goes unnoticed. Or maybe I should tell my sup tomorrow. Think I'll do that.

    Is the NDA credit under "Rec A" or whatever? I know Internationals has its own field, but what about Hazmats?
     
  16. That Is what my sup "suggested"

    In shoved it in the,suggestion box!..lol

    If you forget your start mileage just ask the OMS to check your ending mileage from the day before. As long as nobody else used your package car (you can check the DVIR to confirm) that will be OK.
     
  18. I put them all under, A

    I would rather lose credit for a couple of miles than risk getting accused of rollback.
