    Yes------16 * 5 + 8 = 88. No way in the world he worked 5 16 hour days in a row.

    He is full of doggie doo doo.

    If I find it. No problem.

    I remember one 16 hour day, and five 14 hour days. We work 6 days here for whoever wants to work.

    We also work 6 days for whoever wants it-----no way they would let us go past 12, let alone 14-16.

    Nope----if you volunteer to double shift OT starts after the first 8.

    BadIdeaGuy Don't discriminate against blind preloaders

    My best isn't as impressive. But I only got about 4 hours on that Saturday.

    Preloaders that do not drive are not restricted by 60/70 hour DOT rule. Management here is perhaps more lenient. My building has a nice family feel to it.

    67 is impressive. 88 is too hard to believe.

    My last few Peaks I don't think I broke 50 and I was a FT pkg car driver.

    My helper works in the preload. He will do at least 8 in the morning and be with me for 6-8 hours each night. M-F and Saturdays with someone else.

    I'll see if he will let me take a picture of his pay stub next week to show you @UpstateNYUPSer

    But it happens a lot. You think preloaders only work 2 or 3 hours as a helper during peak. They'd never be used if that were the case.

    Our building would never let a PTer go over 12-----they need them to last through Peak.

    88 was hard but it is doable for whoever wants it.

    Our preloaders that go on road were limited to no more than 5-6 hours------no way they would do that many if they worked 8 hours on the inside.

    I heard rumors of feeders going over permitted drive hours.

    I imagine that's a very short list.

    I owe you a huge apology if you are able to prove your claim.
     
  16. UpstateNYUPSer

    UpstateNYUPSer Well-Known Member

    Absolutely not-----DOT hours are non-negotiable.

    Dave, apparently you've forgotten that not every center is run the same way as your little podunk building was.

    I only did this for the last week of peak. Most of peak I was doing 50-60 hours. I hope I can find my pay stubs from last year. Do you know how long UPSers will keep your paycheck info for?

    Fair enough.

    Would this have happened in your former center?
