    Has anyone heard a thing about our Power Pads being updated? While ours grow cobwebs inside, UPS seems to upgrade their units every two years or so.

    We are trying newer versions of the pads every few weeks. Small models about the size of a cell phone.

    What kind of backwoods po'dunk FedEx are you working at? We got lumbar adjustable seats, gps voice navi, our own tablets, and a free snack machine inside our cabs.

    We have a ping pong table, popcorn machine and 2 pinball machines in our breakroom. Plus experimental powerpads and the coldest a/c around thanks to our great mechanics and the fleet manager that cactus talked so poorly of.

    Cactus Just telling it like it is

    Cactus did not speak poorly of your mechanics or fleet manager. Only pointed out that your FM can send your comfy vehicle away and make you drive a crappy one. Hope like hell that he does. You deserve nothing better than a 1972 Pinto.

    Fleet manager does not assign trucks to individual routes, only decides what trucks the station gets. Your manager decides what size vehicle the route needs and to some extent the mechanic provides his input based on the amount of miles the vehicle is driven. That is where the gift cards comes into play. Too bad you are clueless as to how things work.

    We had a Jacuzzi, a sauna, and a tall blond Swedish masseuse. So there.

    I live in reality and you live in fantasy, plus 1000's of miles from your family. Big difference.

    the only "update" i heard about was they updated the "employee acknowledgement screen" to basically say "you can get :censored2:canned for making a bad scan, even if it was a mistake".

    You know, the one you just breeze thru in the AM so you can get to work?

    They started field testing the new Ground scanners in a couple markets. They are the heavy duty cell phone ones. Like the ones that Walgreens uses for Fedex stuff if you’ve seen them.
