    Well folks, I made a big change at work and jumped my boat about a month ago. Went from a 20+ route contractor to a 6.

    The amount of stress and being on constant alert for problems has been reduced to almost zero. We have 6 people who arrive every day. They arrive pretty damn happy because we make their job as easy as possible, because my new owner actually gives a hoot. If anyone goes over 90 stops, I start filling a truck. When and if I start filling that truck daily, we hire another person.

    We run almost brand new equipment!

    All bulk stops go on 2 straight trucks, we have a 3rd for overflow.

    I have landed the best FdxG manager job in my region.

    That and a buck forty nine will get you a cup of coffee at the nearest 7-11. Seriously if you are working for one of the many greedy, low wage contractors a year from now that 6 will be 20 with a turnover rate exceeding 300% annually .
