then the real fun begins.
Same logistics just a different day.
Its not madness its stupidity. Christmas used to be easy, now its so micromanaged its pathetic.
Peak season is easy compared to the utter chaos that results from managements stupid, irrational and totally incompetent dispatching during the summer months when routes are being eliminated in a desperate attempt to attain the hopeless stops-per-car metric that IE demands of them.
At least during peak they are trying to dispatch properly.
I.E. is alive and well during peak too. They cut routes during peak and add helpers thinking that the answer.
I actually think peak is easier than a regular work day its just the hours.
this peak is not living up to the hype.
Of course, there are still 2 weeks left.
I dread January: volume will still be up due to gift cards yet IE will forecast a reduction of volume,routes will be cut and i'll have to get on the nine five list again.
According to my pay stubs from the past 3 years, this coming week will be the longest hours.
Can't get longer than 60.
I like the madness and the two hours of overtime last week.
Yes, but you work in the Bubble of Goodness with Upstate, don't you?
I don't know of this "Bubble of Goodness". I am not sure if this is a jab at me or something. I will try not to get all sensitive and so on. I come here for fun and that's about it.
That may change this week now that we are down a driver.
Someone take a dive?
Sort of....skiing accident.
Shouldn't have been skiing during Peak.
I know none of the wives were ever suppose to have babies during peak........(cross your legs, honey!!)
Actually, it can.
The DOT doesnt say you cant work more than 60...it says you cant drive once you have worked 60.
There was one time a while back when I wound up sitting in the jumpseat and "guiding" some new hire with a DOT card through the last wretched hours of a Friday night when I was out of hours but they needed my area knowledge. I actually got something like 64 hours in a week on one occasion.
