    I am new here and would like to say hello to all. I just took my first training class today in the Hialeah office. Information overload.

    150 stops a day ? could that be correct ? hmmmm - that's around 18 stops an hour - ouch!

    I do 160 stops a day by myself, you have an easy route!

    oldngray nowhere special

    depends on the route. On some 150 isn't even 8 hours of work, on others it can be more than 12.
  4. Scratch sets the bar. The rest of us, can only dream to be that good!

    Since I'm old with some gray too, there is a lot of wisdom in stating that all routes are different. I don't know if the original poster is starting as a peak driver or helper, 150 stops and a hundred miles works up to a nine hour day on my route by myself.
  6. And. 10.5 for the rest of us!

    How was there enough room for the jumper in the truck? Have him stand on the bottom step and hang on to the grab rail like the trash men do.

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    Called skills baby. Do the little intangibles for it to fit right in truck.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Why is your NDA on the floor rather than the 1000 section?

    190 stops, 320 pieces and 150 miles would be considered an excessive dispatch and would never be put on road in my center.
