It don't look like any bootcamp went through. I didn't see anyone get hit or put into the dying cockroach position. I could have used one of those sling cranes at UPS on those days where the old butt was draggin.
17 1/4 seconds.
That package car look preatty empty...Must have simulated what it looks like at about 5:00. What a joke....
5:00pm on a light day with no pick-ups?
That "slippery track" kind of reminds me of someone trying to wade through the BS.
How old was this video? They were still using keys.
no handrail at the minute mark....
That slippy slide looks like fun! They could use one of those at every amusement park.
I want a clear package car!!!!!
We've actually stooped sending drivers to Integrad and have gone back to training drivers on premises.
Story aired yesterday. Assuming by the over the top nature of the training, I assume they would train you on a keyed, no power steering manual. The rest would just be gravy. And a big lol at the "slip and fall" simulator. of all the things I would really want to hammer home for a new hire, that would be at the bottom of the list. We get some decent winters here in Indy. Learned not to bust my ass on ice at a young age.
From what I hear, the pass/fail rate is awful, so then you are constantly in need of new hires. And probably have gotten rid of guys that would turn out to be good. Been at it 7 months, and still picking up little things here and there. Hell, knowledge of the area is numero uno in my book. And with that, all the methods easily fall into place.
I spent a week there last summer, even had the same instructors in the video. It was a great learning experience.
I find the emphasis on safety to be rather ironic, considering that the "training" is taking place in a vehicle from which basic safety features like a 3 pt seatbelt and power steering have been intentionally deleted by the company in order to save an insignificant amount of money. I would like to see the company demonstrate to the INTEGRAD trainees what will happen to them in the event of a head-on collision in one of these vehicles...when their face is propelled forward through the windshield and their jawbone is crushed and driven out through the back of their neck after impacting the steering wheel at high speed. Safety first!
Then where are you going to pee?!
In a restroom like the rest of the civilized world.
does bootcamp train the drivers to "run and gun" all day and then take their breaks and meal after returning to the building?
Typical management bs, calling it boot camp. Jesus these people see the world through warped lenses.
