    We were told at our PCM that our districts new "production manager" is requiring 3 additional stops per car. I'm amazed yet not really that they continue to try this. Every time they do I just make more and more money. On my route 3 additional stops could easily add at least a half hour to my day.

    Same here, more stops take longer and I have been getting bigger and bigger paychecks. I have also noticed that I slow down more when I get tired. Whoever thinks that we can do more stops in the same amount of time needs to try to actually do the job....

    Yep twice this week I've been finished with the "normal" route by around 6:30. When I got done with the splits they added I had a ten and eleven hour day.

    My Preloader usually adds a couple of extra stops for me too. I just wish they weren't two routes over and I get an extra half hour of overtime everyday knocking them out on the way in.

    They have added 3 more stops to my route about 10 times in the last 5 years.
    It hasn't gone well for anybody.

    They can add 10 stops per car. I don't give a crap. My 9.5 doesn't change.

    we were told seven stops more when keyless entry was put in. Seems more like 17-27 more have been added in the last year. So go ahead and add a few more if you can fit them in.

    They can add as much as they want to me. I live 10 minutes from the building. I can work a 10 hour day, everyday, and still be home before 8:00 to see the wife and kids. That works out to roughly $90,000 a year should they decide to keep up the antics over the course of a calendar year.

    The idiots that have these bright ideas have no clue what actually has to happen for a package to get delivered.

    It looks good on paper and it justifies them having a job so that is all that matters to them.

    In the center where I am employed, we averaged 175 SPC today; some drivers were out with 220+ stops. 3 stops is just a margin of error at this point.

    3 Stops might be fine if they are within your area, increases stop density, but if they are just scrambling to find them by adjusting
    route boundaries, like others have said, it just adds on road time.. I love taking extra work... more $$ for me. Hell with the other guy who
    wants to drop em.. I work for me and my family first..
