    I need advice on loading the trucks Im not very good at all at it. It's my second day of loading and my supervisor tells me I'm not moving fast enough or not doing it in the right sequence so please could someone give me some advice. And also If I don't get it will they fire me or move me to another position

    Do you have any tips at all. I could use anything my biggest problem is fitting packages in and making sure they are in sequence when they don't come down the conveyor belt in sequence and by the time i see a package that I need the shelves are already full

    Im a driver, never been a loader but the good loaders put the big stuff on floor an small stuff on shelf, bulk stops on floor together. as a driver we start at 1000 shelf and work our way thru to the 8000 shelf, so try an put stuff on floor in that order if its huge...itll help the driver

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    Doesn't matter they don't train loaders correctly and the DOL system is broken n not done correctly anyhow. Destined to fail not because of what your doing but because the whole system is broken n not set up correctly to work by the brain dead idiots you work for.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    The floor under the 2000 shelf is for 1000 and 2000 #s. Show a sense of urgency....and ask your sup questions if you're unsure of something. Oh and remember....it's not a crime to pick up more than one package at a time.

    Just listen to you're supervisor, he probably loaded for at least several months and therefore knows what he's talking about. Just load faster and in sequence and all will be well.

    They will give you until Dec. 24 to get it right. By the way, got a lot of "you ain't seen nothing yet" coming your way.

    Yeah, here's the thing....I don't know you or like you well enough for you to crack jokes like that about me. Just because some other members joke like that with me doesn't mean it's okay for you to do it. I find it misogynistic and rude....please edit your post.
