Im being forced to work. Is this going to be time and a half?
always saved a week of vacation for after christmas. why work and do 3 routes and piss the customers off by making p/u"s at noon. besides i would always get the extra days off. loved it.
Is there a guaranteed 8 hours today?
If they force you to come in and work then you are entitled to 8 hours work if you want it. Luckily I got the day off today since others wanted to work in my center. I would hate having to make the 60 mile roundtrip drive into work for only 3 or 4 hours. Hardly worth the gas it takes in my p/u truck.
I made the 40 mile trip at 3am to get up there only to find the doors locked and the lights off. Called my friend who is a PT sup, she called one of the management he told her to tell me that I wasn't needed so I went home. Would have been nice if someone let me know before I wasted time and gas.
You had the best plan, seniority is a great thing. I asked my center manager Monday if I was needed, I do EAMs first, then my regular route, so he told me to come in. I went in, hardly any EAMs, pulled EDD and had forty stops on my route and the one next to me. I asked off and came back home. This will be an easy day for people working, but this is usually the only day of the year I ask off with no pay.
Hope you're enjoying your day off! I had to do safety committee work, run some air, make oddball p/us for companies who wanted to close early, and am now in the midst of a 5 hour lunch break before I make p/us from my own route and call it a day. Oh the pains of being a rookie with barely any seniority
