    Any time my sup talks about yesterdays numbers with me he always puts some code in there like that. Must have a quota each month they have to keep up with. I've seen him put the code in and say good job yesterday and move on.

    This is the one month out of the year where they don't hound anyone on telematics and performance. They just want you to get the job done.
    You have to be real special to get a virtual OJS a week before Xmas

    And what is a virtual OJS. What's it mean and what's the purpose

    HEFFERNAN Huge Member

    They are using every sensor, timer, GPS, and telematics to grade you on your performance.
    It is basically like a supervisor riding with you all day doing an OJS

    Without the Sup having to ACTUALLY sit in that darn truck being hot or cold and actually being able to see how the drivers day REALLY is, we'll just rely on this printed out report

    Well today went pretty much as smooth as it could go on my end. I'm interested to hear the feedback tomorrow morning. What exactly is being reported or calculated here? Since it's typed into the diad

    I thought it just meant the sup talked to you about something. Didn't realize I was getting that much attention, just thought if he talked to me he was leaving somebody else alone!

    Most times it is justifying their job to someone above them. Do it the way it is meant to be done. They can't touch you.

    They're correct that that code is for a virtual OJS, however it doesn't mean they were actually doing an OJS on you today. That virtual OJS code also allows them to look at details of the previous day after the fact so they might not necessarily have been OJS'ing you today, but rather looking for information about something from yesterday. I had an on-car that would do that virtual OJS like once or twice a month and he wasn't actually OJS'ing me for that day--he was trying to figure out stuff from the day before and it was never to bust my balls but rather to defend me when the center manager was whining about something.
