    My route has a new development being built. Have been dealing with old time study issues from before the new development. My ORS told me 4 weeks ago that he put in for a new time study to be done. Was wondering if any supes on here might know how long corporate likes to take on those?

    Right now my plan day is at 7 hrs and it takes me almost 10 to do it. I have to admit it's been kinda funny seeing my dispatchs face in the morning :)

    They still do actual physical time studies? That's so old school with all the modern spy tech crap the trucks have in them now.

    In the old days if your time study came back in your favor they would throw it out and say "something was wrong with it and they would do another at a later date".

    The chances of you gaining time are slim. Last time I saw a center wide virtual time study each route lost on average about 1/2 an hour.

    Forget about it they will just start harassing you about your over allowed and then start doing observations

    Time study, the art of tracking your hours to insure they match with your time card.

    Any other definition will not be acknowledged.

    A fair days work has zero to do with any time study, which is why we don't recognize them.

    Who cares. Don't hit anything. Don't get hurt. Deliver everything. Pick up everything. Bring it in. The numbers are there problem. Not yours

    I'm don't care about the time. I was just curious. Since he has been saying it for 4 weeks it made me wonder how long it takes.

    If they did a time study we might have to hire some help.
