Starting an hour early Monday. Anyone else?
To wrap up an hour and a half later.
Wait for the "you better come in earlier" pcm.
15 minutes earlier me, 15 minutes later for others
Normal time, as far as I know
More then an hour earlier then normal. I'll consider it. Depends how I feel in the morning. Might just go in 20 minutes earlier, as per what the contract allows them to change the start time to.
Driver start time is 8 for us, 50 minutes early for a Monday. Trying to get guys on road early because we're going to get crushed with PU volume.
It's it Friday yet?
Normal Monday start time for us, which is 35 minutes earlier than the rest of the week.
Saturday Air drivers picked up both ground and air from UPS stores and Target, Kohls and a whole lot more retail pick ups we normally don't service until the last Saturday before Christmas. My plan is to work doubles inside the Hub for OT after 5 hours and let someone else beat the streets for OT after 8.
We do Target and Gap pickups every Saturday to ease the strain on local sort Monday. Allows us to have guys in early to start sorting the smalls and get everything in the trailer before the main sort starts. They filled a package car with Target alone yesterday. Should be interesting tomorrow.
1.50 hours earlier.......Smalls Sort!
We're doing the helper for 2.99 or 3.99 hours thing.....and we're expected to make cutoff.
90 more stops, packed truck as opposed to an open aisle, and helper for under 3 hrs.
They love it when I tell them I'll pick them up at 3 so they can wait all day for a 3 hr paycheck.
I went through 4 helpers last year, they said they were looking at around 8 hrs based on orientation.
Actually Monday start time was pushed back 15 minutes here.
Us preloaders got to come in at 2.25 and 2.10 the rest of the week. The good thing about peak is you always get to load a truck that looks like it came from the 1960's.
Last year I loaded a truck that had like a 100lbs rear door, pvc pipe for a cup holder, legit wood on the dash, obviously it was a manual transmission with no power steering, and a chain to open the bulk head door, it didnt lock or anything
A collectors piece.
