    if you are on a 4x10 schedule, (Saturday and Sunday off and a random day during the week) can they schedule you to work Monday-Wednesday and friday and use thanksgiving as your "day off" even though it's a holiday?

    This is fedex. They can do what they want. It wouldn't surprise me. The rule is, if the holiday falls on your day off, you get the next day off

    I'm just trying to determine if I should be getting OT for one of my days next week. I'm already working Saturday and getting the holiday on Thursday so I'm assuming they think I'll just be happy with that

    Hahahahahahhahahahahahahaha, seriously, you crack me up! Rules don't apply to management unless it is convenient. Needs of the company and all that crap.

    You actually get the dock door? We have an alternate delivery point for the Sams Club and Walmart here

    9/10 when I deliver or pick up from Walmart all 3 doors are blocked with trailers, no tractor is even attached lol

    And this time of year I've been getting almost 150-200 pieces from the Walmart pup

    My first year but from talking with the other guys, yes. They say it sucks because we still do what seems like six days of freight in three days.

    This is the correct answer, except when it isn't.

    You're supposed to get either an alternate day off or holiday cash in addition to holiday pay since the holiday falls on your regularly scheduled day off.
