Dismiss Notice

Hi Guest. I just wanted to let you know that there will be some service disruptions here over the next few days. We're moving to a new server and then the latest version of xenforo is going to be installed. ~ cheryl

    Go to whichever supervisor is in charge of scheduling and tell him you're going to bump such person off the route. If he refuses to allow you to work, then get a steward present and tell him again. If he says no, take your paid day off and enjoy.

    Are you a bid driver ? You can follow your work if a certain percentage is on it. Otherwise your sol.

    Only reason i asked because my on car supervisor said that i shouldn't be doing this junk work that i was doing today, and if it was him he'll bump one of these lower seniority drivers and make them do the junk work like running around delivering bulk and delivering misloads and such like i did today. I just need to figure out who be doing this scheduling thing.

    You're complaining about doing cleanup work? Dude, those are the easy days. Sure, you drive a lot and sometimes it's a lot of pieces, but if you take your sweet time and take a meal, you can drag it out the whole day.

    It sounds like "junk work" means "more work" that they're gonna dump on you for being so eager. Then the new people get monkey work.

    I could've ran like 6 different routes today from bid drivers but this one sup was adamant about me running bulk and whatnot. I mean it was some easy money and acutally got 10hrs today but that one sup should've let me run one of the many bid drivers routes that i knew.

    I mainly ran stops off like 4 drivers to keep them under 9.5 and ran some misloads.

    F outta here how so? I qualified way before that mess and they usually schedule me on a different route everyday of the week. Me being a extra and running bulk is actually very rare. I cannot even count on my hands how many times i been a extra this year
