    the easiest thing for me was sit and look at a map and focus on one section at a time see where they divisions are. then going to a new section the next day and see if i could remember where the previous division was

    Are you talking about in the hub or on the road as a driver?

    I used flash cards to learn the primary sorts at both buildings I worked.

    I learned small sort as a bagger before I sorted, but our small sort included the splits in the bins, so at worst you could look things up.

    Iggy, you should know better than to start threads without searching.

    Flash cards worked for me. Is it for loading or for small sort?

    Why would anyone need to know zips as a driver? I know the zip I deliver in and don't plan on leaving there anytime soon unless some jerk who doesn't know any better decides to bump me in January.q

    I have to admit that I wondered that myself but you have read the same posts that I have from these new kids and sometimes you just have to ask the obvious.

    Why do hub sorters need to learn Zip codes? I thuoght all the human readable bar codes had the Center Slics on them.

    Some times the slic might not be right so it helps to know zips

    Zipcodes are important.
    The city of Boston is split between four different buildings; Norwood, Watertown, Somerville and South Boston. Knowing all of Boston's zips is challenging .
    Hey have you ever been in a checkout line where they ask for your zipcode, even if you were paying with cash? I love to mess with them so I always answer " 02133 "; which is the statehouse on Beaconhill.
