    I'm running my route today and I get a message from my on car to enter VX3 in the ojs field of the verify screen. Never heard of that before. Sent a message back asking what VX3 meant, but got nothing back. Any ideas? My work group is 3, but other than that I have no idea.

    Probably make your numbers better...or maybe they were suppose to go out with you and had other stuff to do...out of curiosity check your numbers tomorrow and see if there is a change..if you did enter the "code"

    Running scratch thing is starting to heat up here and on most days I'm fairly close to scrath, but I got crushed on Monday and the load was a disaster, so I ran about an hour over. Sup talked with me this morning, but nothing serious or heated. He just wanted to know what happened. He has done some ride alongs, but not with me. Wonder if like you said he was going to go out with me, but let it go and just had me enter in his ojs code?

    That can't be it. That would be dishonest.

    and we all know they would never do anything dishonest to make their numbers look better.

    If that's what it was than its fine with me. Rather have an ojs ride w/o a sup than with one. :hapydancsmil:

    I wouldn't call 1 hour over being crushed....that is only 5 or so minutes off per hour...please. Next time your load looks like go get your sup and tell him that is unacceptable and chew his/her ass. Are they going to start harassing everybody again...the allowance is an absolute joke..period...

    Mine used to meet me on route for about an hour then take off the rest of the day to go golfing or whatever. It was his lie so I didn't care how he told it.

    I call that a win-win. He gets credit for the OJS and you dont have to listen to him talk all day.

    There are codes for virtual time study from what I was told. Either way doesn't effect the way I do it every day.
     
  11. Before I left the building Monday, sup went over some telematics stats with me and then entered some OJS info. Could be proff that they discussed issue with me for future issues.

    It's a code for telematics.
    It is, as mentioned previously, for a vitual ojs.
    It expands the informationed gathered to include more than the standard things you see on the daily reports.

    As stated, this is the code used for a "vitual" OJS done with the help of telematics. It is intended to be used to identify some unusual event or exception occuring during a drivers day, to review with the driver the following day. The conversation you had with your sup in the AM was the virtual OJS, coding it in the board just gives him credit for doing it.

    He pulled up my telematics from Monday, because I entered my lunch wrong. Put in 1733 to 1713 instead of 1733 to 1813. So it showed that I was doing nothing for 40 minutes. When he pulled it up it showed that I was sitting at taco bell for 40 minutes with the the truck off. No big deal once I showed him that I was on break and just keyed in my break wrong. He corrected the times and my over allowed went down to 96 over instead of over an hour over. I think the code was just like you said, just showing he went over the day before with me.

    there should be a telematics report with your name on it back at the building

    What is ridiculous about it? Are you saying if telematics shows a driver sitting doing nothing for 40 min, when not on break, that it is ridiculous of a supervisor to ask the driver about it?

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    mine still leaves at lunch never to be seen again after one of his 5 mistresses picks him up for some
    Afternoon delight.

    No, what's rediculous is when you tell said sup that for the 300th time you had to sort the truck for 20 mins here or there because the preloader loaded your truck like a woodchipper and they look at you like you have 3 heads.

    It's just the fact that a sup can't just ask the driver about the time...it's always a trust issue.ups doesn't trust their employees..have to get the technology out...whatever
