The big push is on to improve Leave Building Times, so the Einstein's in management have devised a countdown system. At 10 minutes to the appointed time, a manager begins walking up and down the belt shouting that the "countdown" has begun. Every minute thereafter, they do the same thing. "9 minutes!!!", "8 minutes!!!", etc. Besides being infuriating, this is childish BS of the highest order. Assuming that everyone can leave the building by a specific target time is moronic because the loads vary so widely. The courier with the paper route can easily get out the door on-time, but what about the guy in the W-900 stuffed to the roof with 100 lb pkgs? Can he get out the door at the same time? No, and holding everyone to the same standard is idiotic. Guess what happens...every single morning. About half the station pulls around the corner, parks their vehicle on the shoulder of a busy highway, and finishes sorting their truck. Retarded and unsafe at the same time.....a major accomplishment. Stupid management tricks never cease to amaze, do they? When someone plows into the back of a truck, the courier will get the blame for unsafe parking, but that precious "leave building" time will look good on some effing report. How stupid can it get?
