On Mondays here, routes are usually cut. On my belt, we are typically down 3 cars. Yesterday, not only were no cars removed, but 5 more cars were added. We were short two people at the start of the shift, and one guy passed out in one of his trucks (unsure why) and an ambulance had to be called. But that's irrelevant to this post. So I guess around here, Monday was the start of peak. My area was very light, however. We were coming in at 3:50, down from 4:20. I didn't leave until after 9. Today, Tuesday, our start time was 2:30. I think even more cars were added. We literally had our asses reamed. And I'm talking a no-lube sort of reaming. Very unpleasant. There was an area on my belt with a gap between cars, and packages were being stacked onto pallets... eventually. From what I have witnessed today, this building, running 7 belts, is not large enough to efficiently handle the volume we just saw. Not only is it not even December yet, but I don't remember any single day being this bad least peak. Are you guys seeing the same thing happening where you are? How bad was it today?
