    The way things are going, Sunday delivery will be our fate as well.

    I have a post office on my route and one of their sups said they're making no money off that amazon deal, but it is the United States Postal Service where profit goes to die!

    My SIL received something last Sunday and I was just dumbfounded that this is happening. Just amazing how the all mighty dollar is going to ruin us all.

    Let's see demand go up for Saturday service before we start fretting Sundays.

    It is sad, though. No reason for Amazon to be delivered on Sunday.

    I wouldn't mind having the option of working Sunday thru Thursday, getting a weekday off would be nice sometimes.

    I see us delivering the Sunday before Christmas. (maybe not this year, but I believe we will soon).

    Same here. I volunteered and worked 8 hours. It was the first Sunday our center had ever delivered. You should have seen the looks people gave me seeing a UPS truck on a Sunday. The other odd thing was the weather. I was wearing shorts and a short sleeve shirt in New England a few days before Christmas. Final piece of weirdness was no EDD. I had no manifest of any kind so no clue what was in my truck like when drivers were on paper.
    Weird weird day.

    In the early days we knew what was in the truck because we loaded it-----pre load wasn't invented yet.

    If we ever started delivering ground on the weekend we'd need more sorts which is unnecessarily expensive. Also, I think they'd have a rough time finding part timers who would want to work on the weekend.

    I think it would be a pretty badass gig if we only worked 4 days and delivered ground on Saturdays.

    We could bid on M-Th or Tu-Sa. Work 12 hour days and have three days off.

    :censored2: Sundays.

    Hard enough to find ones to work Monday thru Friday at the wages UPS wants to pay.

    They finally got a starting rate raise after how long....
     
  17. I was out of hours at about 7:00 on Friday by design every week.

    I had heard they (USPS) were going to run Sundays in certain high population markets (NYC, ect) but what's confusing about this is that the post master general has been trying to eliminate Saturday delivery in order to stop bleeding cash. Why would you start Sundays while at the same time fighting to stop Saturday service? Especially since Sunday service is another money losing proposition.
