    No drinking while in motion. I drink at stop signs/lights waiting for traffic.

    They also like to print out reports of too long for stop complete to ignition on, or package selection time, and say personal time is to be done blah blah blah.

    If I need a drink or need to refill my water, I’m doing it.

    And then they coach drivers about package selection time... but won’t improve/enforce better load quality or hire & pay more for preload.

    Plus it's instructed for qualifying drivers to sort on lunch and break... because they know the loads are :censored2:. Problem is they continue this after qualifying and then burn up routes.

    You're also forgetting ORION. No way to use those methods anymore since that :censored2: came in.
     
  5. I wonder what our accident frequency is since Orion was implemented. It cant be better than before. The new on road supes are often pretty darn green when it comes to realistically helping a new driver observe safety methods on road and making sure they continue to work safely while attempting to run "scratch". There's so much happening out on the road that they have no clue about.

    My center manager rode with me this week. I felt like I was training the guy, he was in my way constantly and wouldn't even follow me up stairs or down long driveways. Useless. He mentioned that with the new diad gps anyone can do the job. Out of touch.

    Invited him out the next day and he declined. Something something about a conference call.

    Why does everyone hate the GPS thing? Just shut your brain off, follow the technology like a mindless automaton and collect the OT from 100% Orion compliance. I'm getting paid more to think less.

    Consistent 100% ORION trace + 9.5 list = lower stop counts

    Apparently the "mindless" part doesn't work.
    Last Monday I got two packages for the house across the street and two doors down.
    I talked to the regular driver who said his route is split up on Monday and covered by a coverage runner-gunner.

    How's that working for ya UPS?

    They hide minor accidents now. Has happened several times in my center in the last few years

    Because when you are bricked out it sucks to spend the whole day crawling over the trampoline, the bunk beds and the 3-piece bookshelf set that is PAL’d to your 1000 shelf but that ORION wants you to save until the end of your route...after you have been forced to bury all of it underneath 500 cubic feet of pickup volume.
