Can you get disciplined for following edd even if it makes no sense?
You can get a spanking.
Seriously, no. But you better break off for commits. missing commits is something that you will get disciplined for. But don't worry. Orion will fix it.
You need to be a mathmetician. I followed it today, the first time I ever could keep up. Most days I have to pull 15 times for the bad edd. For some ungodly reason every thing out of sync was an air. I had a great day. Never happens, Think it was fixed.
I follow EDD 90% of the time or more, usually. It even got me in trouble today a little, some cul-de-sac was looped the opposite way. I guess I shouldn't tune out so much.
In one area then 15 stops in another then back to the same area I was just at, add cuts suck
Their problem. If you're not absolutely familiar with your entire area then how are you to blame for not knowing when to not follow EDD?
Never follow DOL or edd. Both are jacked up and cut up like a freakin retard.
I ran a non-split route today and it was just fine. Other days EDD doesn't make as much sense on split routes.
All depends on route n how much it changes from day to day. Bulk routes seem not to change as much from day to day as like RD or residential- some businesses routes. I just use the edd really to tell me what sections I have and number of packages for routes. Ive been on my route for like 5 years now and it changes up pretty much every day but all the stuff I know like the back of my hand so it don't matter really to me. Piece of cake lol.
Oh yeah had me driving 15 miles away for stops in the middle of the day then coming back to the area I was in before. Love it.
Do what we do soldier to make it work OUR WAY lol.
KNOWLEDGE AND PROBLEM SOLVING IS KEY TO BEING SUSCESSFUL AT THIS JOB, if person doesn't have that they need to look for other employment lol.
Do what you need to do...
Make the commits, service the customer to the best of your ability/area knowledge, etc.
I am ORION
I've been threatened with a WL for following ORION 100%. If I followed EDD 100% I'm sure I'd get fired.
Seriously? I thought Orion was the greatest thing since man invented beer. It makes no sense to get in trouble for 100% compliance. What's next? We get in trouble if we deliver all our air on time?
Take that warning letter....then follow Orion 0%....If you get WL for that...show both WL’s at panel...problem solved
Go ahead, run across traffic all day like deer during rut season, because if you follow EDD, that's what you will be doing.
