    This happens every year right after X-mas. How bad it is depend on the IE department that dictates how many routes are run in your center.

    Always cracks me up in November they make you use a helper for 210 stops but after its "over" they send out with 240 and no helper. Thanks for the money!

    I often ask to be spared the hassle of using a helper for that reason. Especially when I'm on a rural route.

    Ahh, the beauty of feeders...I had two stops today: one out, and one back. But it was really cold today. So I played the runner going into the truck stop.

    We had 3 guys follow it 100 percent on most days during peak. Broke it off in their ass. It takes some serious anger at management to achieve that at peak. I don't know how these guys were delivering out of the 8000 shelf at 11am lol

    Our center never had this before. Usually there are mass lay offs (10-15 people +a few RO's) and very little volume this time of year where you get done before doing a 3 hour long pickup route that goes halfway across town. We've been annihilated this year. Drivers have brought back stops every day this week and I did today as well.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    It has been busy the past two days but nowhere near what you guys are describing here.
     
  14. Every truck we had was on the road plus they ran some helper teams.

    I'm still running my Helper plus dealing with a golf cart route. My route usually has 150-160 stops a day, the entire route had 251 yesterday. If I'm still working next year, I will take this week as my first vacation.
