and how excited were you?
It took me eight years to get my route which I have had for 20 years. I was very excited because my route was moved to another center close to my home and I was able to follow the work which cut my commute from an hour to 10 minutes if I catch the lights.
Any steady route, even if it's crappy, is way better that doing splits!
About 3 years. Loved it. Never would have left it if it weren't for me getting old!
3 years after going FT, we bid every 2. Been bumped off routes by senior drivers 3 times now. Funny thing is I wouldn't go back to any of them now.
Five years, but I passed on it and stayed cover. It was a local university with GORGEOUS women. What the hell was I thinking?
Almost 10 years now without a route. I had a route for a few years and got bumped.
No reason to bid a crap route just to have a route. At least not for me.
6 years then the route was cut out. It figures I finally was able to bid.
Two years. Bulked out everyday 9 months out of the year. Would have 30 to 60 COD'S a day. This was back when we still accepted cash. Highest amount I collected was over $63,000. Took over an hour to count back at the center. But I was happy because I was working everyday.
From what I recall, about 2-3 years. Only reason I got one was because it was a training route. It was a good route with a small mall on it, and a lot of good people. I would of kept it longer than 2 years if they didn't keep training people on it. At least I knew I was working everyday.
First time the biannual bid came around I had a choice of a few crappy routes. I turned it into a decent route in a crappy area.
Are any of the runs any good.
Just under 4 years. Kept it 20 years and bid on a country retirement route.
3 years to get a pretty good route in a bad neighborhood.
Never heard of this. Around here, once you have a route it's yours to keep. Unless you knew it was a designated training route in advance of the bid. Sounds like a real moral buster what your living with.
We have drivers that get a permanent route when they go full time.
10 years no route. We aren't allowed to bid routes here only start times. I don't mind floating anyway, the change of scenery is nice sometimes
I peed myself.
3 years! then the whole city got moved to another center and i chose not follow the route. i took another year and then i got the route i retired on after around 24 years
