I find it amazing that extra volume/new business is frowned upon and thought of as "extra work"....no wonder the stock is in the tank!
You must not understand how the new business volume works. We pile it on the same drivers who already have 9-9.5 days, and expect them to "get it done" because the upper management people have a tough time justifying another car on the road to help with the "new business" when its new stuff. Eventually when the cut route is in 5 days a week instead of 3-4 times for a particular area it ends up getting bid as a route and staying but by then all the other drivers in the loop are beat to death from the year + it took of them handling all the new business with their own business. Not to mention during this period more new business is sprouting up and even with the new route everyone in the loop is still overworked.
Yeah, this would be the perfect job if we could get rid of all those boxes. But I've only been here 33 years so what do I know?
