    Money - on-road supervisor makes more than the highest paid driver.
    Never have to worry about integrity.
    Supervisor get to take lunches off trace.
    Get to wear feeder uniforms.
    No one berates him/her about their over-allowed the next morning.
    Can take a day-off even if a higher seniority driver wants it off too.
    Can sell any marijuana found in packages.
    Don't have 3% of their salary extorted for Union dues to pay for stewards that don't have to pay dues.
    Never get OJSed.
    They get to pick the PC they deliver in and always get one with 3 point seat belt.
    Never have to lock the bulkhead door.
    DR anywhere they want to.

    Anybody think of any other reasons?

    Disqualified!
    That would be a reason not to go into management
     
  7. Ability to spend hours on BC during the work day?
    Ability to take long lunches?
    Ability to come in late, if at all
    Ability to "just not show up"
    Ability to leave early when coming in late (on the days that you actually show up)
    Ability to provide really in sightful perspectives to subordinates?

    The list goes on. Oh yeah there's also the medical benefits....

    You get a copy of the contract before drivers.
    But you don't need to read it.

    Don't get fired for "dishonesty". In fact, it is encouraged!
