    word is,, in my small world of south Florida , the Almighty IE gods have GROSSLY underestimated volume for this peak,, meaning a massive under-staffing and lack of delivery vehicles (anybody in Miami here?) anywhoo,, i can only hope those responsible pay DEARLY ,, FIRE EM ALL

    more tangible details,, in my hub when i got in there were entire split add/cut routes sitting...,im guessing its now up to my operations people to hide this fact from the IDIOTS that caused the problem

    That's when management starts delivering with a helper and almost makes the same numbers as a regular driver by themselves.

    Brings back memories of my driving days.

    How can this be news?---This happens all the time in most locations during peak. It gives management an opportunity to exercise----and if it gets too strenuous they can use a helper. Hey it's peak and we're all just one big happy family playing Santa....Quit your bitching and raise that SPOHR so all the kiddies won't be disappointed.

    I had to correct MY on-road sup when he dirted a pkg wrong. He has only been a sup for 8 yrs. It's hard to train supervisors.....deer in the headlight looks abound.

    I had a doctors apmnt during the day that was on area so the center manager took my helper for the next 2 hrs to finish off some of my deliveries. When I got the truck back I found they delivered 4 stops per HOUR (not bulk stops) and I was WAY behind. Over-allowed significance took a nose dive after that day!

    Why is it when a management person takes a load out to deliver they use a paycode that will not show how much over allowed they were. Somehow they show up as running scratch everyday!

    Management was underestimating volume and understaffing a long time before IE came to power. Nothing new here.

    You think your center is understaffed now---just wait until after peak when they do their yeary "lay off many more than they need to" dance.

    They code 02 in their board and they run scratch every time.

    Since they are doing bargaining unit work I hope that 02 pay code automatically kicks out union dues to the local for the week.

    I was going to say the same thing. Whenever our sups are on the report no matter what they do that day they are exactly scratch. Hmmmm?

    From what I hear it's the complete opposite here. Not enough drivers.
