    I know I need to follow the methods, but I’m a relatively new driver and don’t know them as well as I should. Any tips on how I can slow my day down with the methods?

    Just do the job like you normally would. If you’re doing it how you should be, then you’ll be fine. If you’re a runner gunner, you’ll get what you deserve.

    This is why you slow down and use all of the methods all of the time. Then when you get a ride along, you don't have to fumble around trying to remember what you're supposed to be doing. It's difficult to change what you do repeatedly, day after day, in an instant.

    Whenever they would speak to me, I'd pull over and stop. They'd ask why I was stopping. I'd say because I can't drive and concentrate on your words of wisdom at the same time. After about the third time, they'd shut up while I was driving.

    I can't believe you have supervisors who have time to ride with you for 3 days. Did we lose Amazon?

    Then do it. FYI - Part of the "methods" is taking your full lunch break within the designated hours along with any approved additional breaks throughout the day.

    I can't stand coming back and seeing a bunch of guys sitting around taking their "lunch" at 7-8pm back at the building. Just plain stupid.

    That’s funny. I started doing the same thing. I told them it was an in cab distraction. Space and visibility is done in the parking lot. Not while I’m driving.

    3 day ride for a "relatively" new driver?

    Are you in your 30 days?

    Do you have your own route? If not what is the point?

    He probably didn’t get decent training, made his 30 and has been sucking ever since. You don’t get a 3 day ride for nothing.

    Residential route? You're ALLOWED to go to the bathroom. Break off route and find one at least once.

    Yep.

    Some drivers get in bad habits.



    Ha Ha !


    I thought I was the only one who knew that trick.

    Do it on the highway.... where the speed limit is 65.

    Solves that problem.



    The first thing to ask....

    "what is the purpose of the ride" ??

  17. And hopefully he keeps a notebook. It's very helpful in these situations. Not like they would ever stack the deck against you on a three day ride.

    It's like a safety ride.

    There's no chance you will ace it. They always find something wrong.


    Also, keep your mouth shut.

    Ask if they are attempting to record any conversation on their cell phone.


    When in doubt....

    Hand them the key fob, and ask for a demonstration of all the methods.

  19. It never hurts to hit a curb and knock the oacjapac off of the shelf....just saying...

    Dude

    You're killing me. :biggrin:


    There used to be a big pothole (on company property) as you were leaving the building.

    Oops.... just dumped 2 shelfs.... at 9:00 am.

    My bad.
