Supposedly this is it. My heaviest day so far. They laid off my PVD driver this morning, it’s already started. Good luck out there!
From our last few Xmas eve's it had been pretty dead. Rentals pulled....drivers done by midday. Weather is clear for the next week, so not expecting any late planes. Surprisingly we really haven't had any late planes to Newark.It aint over. There will be TV ads all weekend. "Its not late!"... Late airplanes all day Xmas eve!
The week after Christmas always sucked. UPS tried to act like the volume suddenly went away but was still heavy as hell. With only half the routes running.I think the latest I ever worked on Dec. 24 was like 8 p.m.-- I was usually off by 4 or 5 though. The real trouble always started the day after Christmas when they always insisted on laying off too many people. From Christmas until about the middle of March you never knew what added attractions were going to find in your truck. That was always worse than peak.
Oh no one except the Daves in this company believe those lies anymore. That's why I don't work Saturdays. I know they don't care so neither do I.Is it even a surprise anymore ?
Let me call this one now. I am sure they will tell you Xmas Eve they will try and get every back early but then go ahead and cut routes and load everyone up.
