    You would not be used as a helper after having worked 8 to 11 hours on the preload.

    There is absolutely no way they are going to put a kid who just worked 11 hours on road as a helper. No way in hell!

    desperate times call for desperate measures

    if they need a helper bad enough and he agrees why not

    Cuz you need that kid to hang in there for the next 4 weeks.

    I have to give my former center manager credit-----he made certain that we did not burn out our inside helpers.

    We do it. ::shrug:: They are capped at 12 hours for the day, but if they want to go out for a few hours after a midnight to 9-10am pre-load, why shouldn't they be able to? Isn't like they are being forced...

    Has happened quite a bit in my center. Generally they didnt work preload much more than 8 and were done as an helper in under four hours.

    Maybe start a thread "dave's story time?"
    Those interested could read about the days when he worked here, and others can just skip the thread.
    Good idea?

    Lol. It was really 87.xx, almost 88 hours. And 12 hour limit doesn't exist here. Double 8 hour shifts dude. In 6 days too.

    Respect. I've done some crazy hours, but that's a good paycheck right there.
    Just make sure you're being safe.
