    Our building has started methods training for most overallowed drivers. 20 min week long class where they time people on walking, selecting package, etc. Training packet states how we are most overpaid workers with hourly pay of 68$ per hour if we include benefits and we must step it up.
    Seems like they don't have enough supervisors to do performance rides while they are hiring all of the 22.4.
    Anyone else experience that?

    The solution to "excessive" overtime is to pay all the drivers more overtime to learn about why that overtime is bad?

    Would love to have been a fly on the wall when some bean counter pitched that one... :wink2:

    I’d be grieving that if I have more seniority than any of the “least bests”

  7. Like it's the drivers fault that we get out late every day. The trucks are blown out with irregs and your hauling ass to get your air off on time, so at 10:30 your are basically just starting your route and you can't find a damn thing.

    These retirees may as well go back to work as much as they are on here...not knowing what the hell they’re talking about
