Odds of a PE mechanic caught sleeping on the job and falsifying documents getting his job back?

  2. Yes it's an automated hub, we've had the PDA's since last winter, probably february or march. They're a pain in the ass. Before that we were getting paper dispatches daily.

    I'm not sure how much my experience will relate to yours if you're in a conventional building considering we have probably 2 breakdowns a month and that's considered good. I run probably 15-20 sort calls in a night for twilight/midnight. We probably have at least 10 major repairs that need to be completed every month and I couldn't even count the minor ones. That's a building that's calculated to require 13 mechanics.

    They just don't build the automated buildings the way they built conventional buildings, unfortunately. But everything runs much faster and that doesn't help...most of our belts run around 500 feet per minute.

    I haven't seen much more pressure on us as far as repair times than before the PDAs, I'd say it's about the same. They are much more easily able to track what you're doing though I think. The PDA is basically a way to make you enter all the information into the system that they had to delog from our time cards and enter manually before from what I've seen. You can also create your own work orders on the PDA for sort calls or emergency maintenance and it gives it a work order number like you'd have on a dispatch, create follow up work orders for your PMI's, etc.

    It's a great tool to help you do what your part time sups used to do...

    “Weak people revenge. Strong people forgive. Intelligent people ignore.”

    seems a lot of people here are pretty dumb and weak to continue to entertain the stupidity and ignorance of someone else

    "Strong people can forgive. They are strong enough internally to forgive. They consider all sides of the situation and the people involved. Strong people are not defined by others’ opinions of them. They may feel angry, or a bit hurt for a time, but they are internally strong, self aware, and they have the self esteem, and emotional maturity, to be able to forgive."

    Can't promise that. It could go either way. I don't like working with guys who don't mind their business though.

    So you would be OK with doing your job and part of someone else's job just as long as everyone minded their own business?

    Then why didn't you follow your own advice, I mean Einstein's advice, and just ignore?

    You're the one who called people dumb and weak instead of just ignoring.

    I guess we know which group of people you fall into.

    I didn't respond to them and I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. ;)
    Also "seems" is an operative word in my post. You seem to be black and white in your post.

    But you hinted to "intelligent people ignore" in response to comments about @UpstateNYUPSer coming back to BC..

    You even called us weak and dumb.

    Yet you couldn't ignore. You had to comment on it.

    Just making an observation.

    Never said it did.

    @UnconTROLLed started this.

    I just told @UpstateNYUPSer that maybe now he realizes why some retired people, like @rod, still post, and then here come the Einstein quotes.
