In 20 years with UPS this is the hard peak I have ever worked . Santa Cruz CA center 9500 .
Easy one here, but I just don't have the tolerance for it anymore. Amazon owns us and the company has way too many promises out there that are totally unrealistic. 37 years. 32 on road. Just don't want to do it anymore.
Time to retire. This was one easy peak. Not sure what you think Amazon did to make it worse?
I'm with packmule 37 years 30 peaks driving. Remote enough it wasn't to hard just too much bull&&$$ these days. Gonna crunch the numbers really hard.
In the 13 I've been with the company it was the easiest. Shows how different each hub can be from one another.
Standing around till 10:00 am waiting on planes that are loaded with Amazon promises. Trouble is, I see UPS's problem. How do you justify spending so much money to prepare for just 2 or 3 weeks of excess volume?
I don't ever remember a peak that air wasn't late on Christmas eve. Amazon or not.
And low profit margine,from Amazon packages.
Christmas eve was slammed again,worked all drivers till 830 900 pm. My family thanks you
myself and over 10 other drivers worked past 2000 tonite. we got SLAMMED
Would have been done by 3:30 but I went to help another driver and ended punching out at 4:30. The worst part of this peak was waiting for something bad to happen but it never happened.
I agree----we were all looking at each other wondering when we were going to get slammed. It was busy but it could have been much worse.
Every other package yesterday was Avon or Amazon....never saw so much Avon so close to Christmas.
Now you're gonna crunch the numbers?
Along with lots QVC and the large styrofoam Omaha steaks containers.
I did not see 1 Omaha steak this year... Are you sure we still deliver them
I thought they were Omaha. Its one of the online food places. The containers are strofoam with plastic shrink wrap. Can't write on them with grease pencils.
I delivered a couple of them. Not too many Honeybaked hams.
With the exception of the late air on Christmas Eve this peak was cake. I think that any center that had a rough time has poor leadership that didn't go with the program this year or maybe just experienced bad weather.
