Full time driver in downtown Washington D.C. for 20 years. I have SERIOUSLY been considering signing the next Feeder bid list when it is posted. The workload on every route in our center has been increased by almost 50% compared to a few years ago. The missloads, missroutes, DFUs, bad time studies, telematics, and all the other Service Provider b.s. that happens everyday has become too much. The only downside I can see at the moment is that overtime is actually OVERTIME. What I mean is I am a bonus driver. My route HAS to be done before 5:00 since it is all commercial. A paid 10 hour day for me is the guaranteed 8 pay and 2 hours of bonus time. A 10 hour day in feeders is exactly that. So ffor those of you who have made the switch what are the pros and cons? Happy Holidays!
