I tried to hold this in, but I just can't do it any more!! Everyone knows by now about the blizzard that went thru the Midwest earlier this week. It started here overnight Monday and continued thru Tuesday night. Winds were constant at 40 mph with snow blowing and drifting like crazy. Never heard the snow totals, but there are some 2-4ft drifts everywhere. All in all, not really that bad compared to someplace's, but enough to make life miserable!! Anyway, I come in Monday and they are sending guys home if they want it, and cutting routes like crazy. Probably had 8-10 guys not working that were available and loaded everyone up that did work. Then comes Tuesday, same story only now the weather has already started and the forcast is for 10-12 inches of snow and strong winds. Still cutting routes and loading guys up!! So it gets worse(no way right!!) they decide to bring everyone in as soon as they finish pickups. Emergency condition everything thats left. Would not be a big deal, except they had everyone so heavy, there were guys bringing back 50-100 stops as EC! Now comes Wednesday. Get a call from another driver telling me none of the feeders came in and hardley anyone was working. I call the center and they tell me no need to come in unless you want to help us with your pickups in the afternoon. I agreed. Turns out they cut all but 19 routes for the day. Usually run around 60. The problem here is that the DPS sup apparently can't tell how many stops anyone as because once a package is sheeted as EC it does not show up in his system. So no EDD and no idea what anyone has. Needless to say, it was a disaster. Some guys were running 4 routes combined, with over 200 stops in 8 inches of snow, while 40+ drivers had the day off!! I just do not understand why the company would not put ever available body on the street in the effort to get all packages delivered as soon and safely as possible. The only thing that was of any concern to upper management was their beloved stops per car number and production!! Really? With a blizzard, and half the country shut down?? Come on!! This company preaches safety, safety, safety and then shows us everyday that the only thing that really matters is the numbers in the ledger book!! Sooner or later the lack of service due to the focus on numbers will cost us most of our customers!!!
