    Fulltimers like to send people with alot less senority than me when volume is low, even though i let them know i would like to go, cause i work a full time job beforehand .. is their anything i can do about it, or does it not matter about senority

    Book off if you don't want to work. Then the less senior people will work

    That's not how it works here.

    Southern supplement:
    When time off is available it shall be offered in seniority order by classification as long as it does not result in economic cost to the Employer.

    u must be a hard worker, one would think they would let the highest paid guys go first so they could make their numbers look better, but if there is a bunch of lazy, slow workers w less seniority than you the sups are better off getting them off the clock first.

    Our numbers don't change based on who gets paid what. It's all based on hours. So if I work my highest seniority employee 5 hours, it looks the same as if I worked my lowest seniority employee for 5 hours.

    i have heard that before but wouldn't letting the higher paid guys go home early save the company more money?

    i was always told workers get to go home early by seniority unless they want to stay, so if its light day they have to
    go by asking higher seniority first and if its a heavy they still have to go by asking higher seniority employees first before anyone goes home.
    i know a full timer that used to go home after 6 hours.

    Yes. Cheaper for brown to pay the $10 new hire an extra hour over the $20 an hour guy

    Not always. The higher seniority guy knows what he's doing. Take my clerks for example. I have one that is pretty green. He can do it all by himself, but he's still slow. If I'm in a pinch and need to send him a clerk home I'm sending him home because my high seniority guy can do the job twice as fast. In the long run I'm breaking even or better because he's doing it in half the time and not getting that much more pay.

    For the record I've never been told to get anybody off the clock because they make too much. It's because I'm not going to make my numbers

    Cause they need to use up their budget. To get a comparable budget come same quarter next year. If not the budget is reduced, if the operation goes over budget next year same quarter, some manager will be retiring. The Glennlake Generals will ask questions.
