    And everyone uses 4 ways as soon as they hit the inbound gate right?

    Yep.

    Too small for all the tractors and trailers driving around a small yard and 4 ways flashing everywhere, and all the headlights blinding you, nobody has any idea what the other guy is doing.

    Out west has to be wide open I imagine. Brush Ave is pretty fun.

    The worse place was the South San Francisco hub. It was so tight you had to jackknife most trailers into a spot. Wish i had a picture of that trailer garage. Some spots had poles in them. the only way to get the trailer in was to drag it back . There were so many drivers hitting trailers that no one cared cause management didnt want to hear it and no one was ever charged.

    43rd is like that. You cannot back into almost every spot besides 1-3 without scraping the trailer against a yellow pole

    There’s about a dozen good bays... all the rest you have to rub the pole to get it in... it’s the only way.

    I punched out a few clicks over 13 hours this morning. Half the trailers that were brought to our building on Friday had frozen brakes this morning.

    I'll only come in if they put a gun to my head, but at least it's double time and only for 3 weeks.

    I don't ever come in on my days off . I'll just kill them bit by bit during the week and max out. I want my two days off to relax .

    so I heard this trick for feeders.
    Come to work, take your 1-hour lunch after 3 hours, then 8 hours later (11 hour) the company must pay you a 30 minutes break.

    Anyone can verify if this is true?

    Got my driving text next Monday woot woot
