    I'm just curious what the most missed stops from any one driver have been (that you know of) in your center and if any discipline was issued. I'm strictly talking about missed because of bad loads or double / triple tripping not from vehicle breakdowns or weather.

    RonBurgandy?????????? God is Great, beer is good , People are crazy.

    I had about 50 some missed one day last December. Bad load. Bad dispatch. I'm only human. Can do what I can do. No discipline.

    I brought about 200 back at 11:00 at night once during peak. No snow, just a complete failure to plan on the part of my management team.

    I was sheeting 100-200+ daily for about two weeks straight last year during peak. Wasn't my fault.

    It is only missed if they say it is. Message all missed and let them make the call.

    I had a misload and thought for sure I had sent in the misload message. When I didn't hear anything by 4:30pm I sheeted the pkg as missed. You would have thought I had committed a cardinal offense. Now I don't do a thing with misloads unless I am told to, even going so far as to bringing them in to the office and letting them decide what to do.

    We are required to bring all misleads into the center manager's office. We were also told to never sheet misloads unless we deliver them.
    I had one earlier this week. Sent in the message at 2 when I found it. Carried it to the center manager. He immediately used the customer counter board to sheet it. Wish I had written down the tracking # so I could see how he sheeted it. Could be interesting to see if he was honest or dishonest.

    The center manager is still in his office when you get in at night?

    My current center manager is a workaholic. He is always there.

    I had about 100 in one day last peak as a seasonal. No formal discipline but I got chewed out pretty bad.

    Around here if we don't make service we risk termination. Period.

    In Dallas/fort worth last year they were putting 400 packages on cars and telling people just deliver until your dot hours won't let you anymore, then being the car back and we will load it up again tomorrow. There were no sheeted missed. It was just "maybe tomorrow".

    They are pulling that crap here, don't know how something like would stick if you ran out of hours AND called in early for help. Contract doesn't recognize performance numbers, just "fair days pay for fair days work"

    Stops or pieces? And no discipline? Here you fart funny and they claim you're creating a hostile workplace.

    It's amazing just how many different rules are applied throughout the country by one company. We have to sheet all misloads and attempt them...not just if they are close, but if they are in the same county. An hour roundtrip to make service, oh well, make the attempt.
