    During our PCM they said our build was 326,000 over planned. Over 500 late air. I was one of the first to leave, and I left the building at 9:50. Load was blown out, but wasn't really done, I just had to get out of the way. Left with around 240 stops. Was helping the driver being loaded next to me. Was supposed to leave with over 400 stops. We just ended up having to snatch off the 7000 and 8000 section to be left behind. Was told to just bring back whatever was left to keep it under 12. Around 8:20, the center manager called a truce and just told everyone to comeback with whatever they had left. Should be a fun one tomorrow. Though if we are going to be keeping it under 12, least you can see the light at the end of the day.

    We were told that we would be hammered with fifty extra stops apiece tomorrow. They were bringing in rental vans tonight as I was walking out the gate. Its too bad we don't have any extra drivers to drive them, Christmas seems to have snuck up on us again.

    We were also crushed today. We had 1200 late NDA. The chick that bags the stuff for the PO was drowning too. I do not get how she is supposed to split, AC/clerk, bag PO stuff, pull and sort PO stuff and load a package car. I had 12 bags and 14 loose boxes for a small town post office.

    Outside the industry, UPS is praised for it's ability to plan and prepare for these kinds of volumes. I am not seeing it.

    Same in my center. Not sure who is going to drive the rentals, unless they are thinking air drivers are going to pull full day routes.

    Yes we got slammed today. I got done about 6:30 with 200 stops with using a helper for 4 hours. I was sent back out to help a driver with 100 stops left. I took 50 in a neighborhood I have never done before. Punched out with a 12 hour day. There was still drivers out. We had a few drivers dispatched with 350 stops in a 700.

    The hammer dropped in my building as well...

    One of the casuals parked his truck behind the building, left the keys and DIAD, and went AWOL (75 missed stops).

    We seem to have a problem getting helpers (I can't imagine why).

    Punched out at 9:45, tomorrow isn't looking any better.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Kept u under 12 lol. I haven't heard a word about being under 12 since the DOT 14 hour rule. I can't believe your center manager just told everyone to come in and miss what was left. That only makes tomorrow that much worse. I sure hope the snow holds off until after Xmas. If we get anything over 6 inches customers will be getting their gifts in January.

    The volume so far in two days FAR EXCEEDED plan. I worked 13.05 paid day on monday, and tonight 13.25 paid day. Tonight I brought back 29 stops as missed. Everyone in our center was slammed. NOT ENOUGH CARS ON THE ROAD. I had two drivers assisting me tonight as I had 155 stops left to do after 6pm.

    We all had to take a second lunch and half of the work left was signature only. Right about 945pm, we received a message from the CTR saying to stop delivering and come in immediately and sheet all packages left as missed.

    Tomorrow will be no different. Projections have us heavier than yesterday.

    On the bright side, the company managed to "suck out" 2.5 hours off my hours to give on friday!! GOOD LUCK FINDING A HOME FOR THAT WORK UPS!!

    Thats logistics.

    Most of us are hitting our 2011 peak day stops/pieces. Do they not understand that we can pull it together for 1 peak day with these type of numbers, but 4 weeks of this will result in accidents injuries and full mental break downs.

    What, exactly, do mean they sucked out 2.5 hours of your time? You know that is highly illegal, don't you?
