    They want everyone off the clock by 8:00pm and are trying to move our start times up to 8:00am.

    You guys are starting at 8:00 AM ? Our drivers would kill to start that early. Most of ours are 9 or later.

    They said that's what they would like to try and do. Get pick ups back and out to next destination. Yeah an 8am start would be sweet!

    I see you said off the clock by 8:00. If you consistently punch out after 8 it sounds like they're going to see if you will give up time to do that or do the right thing and call for help. Take your breaks and lunch or you will be intimidated to always give these up to meet their demands.

    I thought it was a company wide thing that they are doing. But apparently not.

    By moving up a start time doesn't mean you will get off earlier, or run more routes. Sounds like a move so they won't have to add routes to me.

    I really do not know what the motive is. I wish I did, but hell I'll take an 8am start either way.

    We're getting the same song and dance here too. Also, 9.5 has become a "thing" again.

    These folks are masters of psychology. Giving you a cutoff time. Make you stick to it. Don't be surprised if they make your start time a little later as you get nearer peak. Your brain is saying "go faster. I'm way behind where I normally am. Gotta be in by 8pm." In the meantime, management is in their meetings slapping each other on the back while reading the OR and production creeps up.

    they will not let me start at 8 or 815am. even though other drivers are allowed to. was told by ctr mgr that I had to start at 830am because I was a 9.5 driver! Thought every employee was suppose to be treated the same? not at UPS. They want everyone back and off by 9pm in our ctr. they had too many drivers run out of hrs during the week.
