Is this happening anywhere else?
Nope. They tried it in the past though. Over dispatch you and tell you you need to be done by 8. Get it done. Lmfao. Real life dosen't work like that........
Right? Give me 10 1/2 hr day and want it done in under 10. Not gonna happen genius
That's not a curfew. That's just a question.
We get that message occasionally.
This happened in my center years ago, everyone had to be off the clock by 8PM. Sounded great until you got your 11 hour day. When you would tell them you would not be done until close to 9 they would freak.
But the best was a couple of drivers thought we had to be off the clock by 8 no matter what, so they drive back sheet up dozens as missed and go home. UPS and the flavor of month.
You should be able to do 10.5 hours in under 9, its the UPS way.
With Stevie Wonder loading the truck everyday it should definitely get done lmfao. I just laugh my nuttz off every day at the comedy show lol.
They're trying to figure out whether they need to send your neighbor to get your p/u volume.
Twilight has to go down and whatnot...
Yeah we worry about working the $10 an hour employees over 4 hours but keep the $34 an hour ones out all night.
Makes perfect sense.
I lost it once a couple months ago I get back to building at like 830 pm and have a truck full of hazards and air ,etc that needed to be unloaded to certain areas, busted my ass all day told the pt sup to send over one of the unloaders, was told he couldn't , lmfao went off. Guy making $10 per hour can't work longer but pay me like $50 ot rate to unload all the crap Unreal.
C'mon man, sense doesn't apply here. That's what IE is for...
I'm not allowed to send anybody home if there are trucks still out with unprocessed outgoing volume. So with my sort thats 9 guys x 10 bucks an hour. Adds up quick.
This "curfew" comes and goes. Not sure where it starts from as far as chain of command. It's not corporate, yet it pops up around the country at separate times.
Right now, my center makes us text in if we are going to be over 10 (past 7:45 for us).
At least there is an actual reasoning for avoiding over 10 for the company as they must pay out a 20 minute time bonus at OT rate. Of course, the dispatch screen in the morning shows many over 10 planned days.
Clearly, the company hopes you will be pressured into working faster or even working through some break to finish under 10. They know they won't convince everyone, but if they convince some...$$$
They paid me $51 an hour to park my truck and unload it today.
Might end up being more if they send me over 9.5 another day.
Just last week, unload went down at 08:15.
Unloaders and primary sorters get sent home.
Drivers help wrap the belts and leave the building at 09:30. 180 drivers making $34 vs 30 preloaders making $10.
It does add up quick.
Which makes no sense why they let just a few guys rot out there every night. Give them some help.
fixed it for you
almost none of us work just 8 hours or less so that added time in the morning ends up being OT on the back end.
