This being my second post, I'm going to start with a bang. Got a few questions so advanced warning, the post will be long! If you're still reading, thank you! Came from another center so basically I am a new hire and am going through qualification. They put me on a training route which is about half bulk and half resi. About 120-125 stops a day 375-425 pkgs average. Still trying to learn my new city. First week and a half ran over a couple of hours but have continually increased my times. Last week I get a call from the BM telling me that I really need to get my numbers up since I have not made scratch consistently yet and qual is at coming close to the 30 day mark. So far, I have not missed commit times and only had a couple of missed biz out of my control. I check the forecast and final totals everyday and have also checked the times for the bid driver for the last 3 months (who has had the route for 5 years)...twice the route was run scratch or under in the last three months. Once by me and once by the bid driver. I know some of it is my fault and I sincerely try to correct my deficiencies but alot is out of my control. My preloader is horrible and the truck daily looks like it has been ransacked. Many days I have to return to the center because he somehow cannot get all of my bulk to fit. Other days, I will chase a package for 2-5 minutes because its not loaded where its spa'd to. At least 3 out of 5 days this is the norm. PreSup has been told several times...nothing. BM saw the load one day and went off on PreSup and the loader...told me it would be fixed. Sure... Anyways, BM tells center manager to have me sign this form called a seasonal agreement which basically says that I will be changed to a seasonal employee instead of full time driver. BM says that it will give me more time to practice on a different route so I can qualify after peak. I've been through the whole seasonal bs where they say they will pick you up after peak and then all of a sudden..."Oh sorry, we don't have a spot, we have to lay you off" and then boom...no job. I argued my concerns and he told me to hold off on signing the form for a week to see if I can make scratch. And now for the rest of the story... Friday, I get all stops off by 1520hrs...122 total. Start pickups at the 15 min early mark at 1545, get em done by 1630hrs. Start headig back to center but night sup sends me msg that I have to do ltr boxes. Stop complete last one right on time at 1715, head back to center. Numbers show I was an 1.02 over...I'm calling shenanigans on the times. Left bldg at 0930 back in at 1725. Not even 8 hours on road but yet Im over 1.02...BS!!! So if you're still reading, again I thank you and here's the questions: 1) Does adding the letter boxes hurt my forecast as well as having to return to center to get bulk that didnt fit? I'm thinking it does 2) What should I do about this seasonal BS form they want me to sign? Should I just shut my mouth and sign away and hope that this is some kind of proverbial olive branch offering and they really are trying to keep me and help me or is this just another game they play to work the heck out of ya before they let you go at the end of the season? 3) Do I have any ground to stand on or recourse for the horrible loads and adding extra stops to the route? Sorry it was so long but I know you experts will provide me with alot of insight. Dont hold back...tell it like it is please!
