    Nah it didn’t. I got my retro before qualifying though.

    What's bonus? Since when do we have production standards or honor their numbers?

    I would cut that crapola out pronto.

    I know a few that were making 3-4 hours bonus a day paid at time and a half

    They are mostly crippled now

    Rick Ross I'm into distribution!!

    When I was in package I once had an awesome preloader...then a bonus baby cried he had a rookie and my loader was moved.

    I'm guessing at least 50% of drivers who bonus on a regular basis work off the clock on preload every single day. At least that's how my hub is.

    Probably 99% kiss a as with dispatch to cherry pick neighborhoods and try to push air stops onto other drivers. All to make getting bonus easier.

    BONUS IS THE DEVIL!

    Use to bonus on my mall route all the time or sat at ups store for 2 plus hours cause they had no one to cover my last 3 pick ups. Even had a center manager say in his 30 years never seen a mall route pay. Got burnt out and went back to utility. Never again but it was sweet working 5 or 6 hours and getting paid for 8

    Bonus is different than guarantee.

    You can take the guarantee or the bonus what ever is higher or at least that's what they let me do

    Depends. Are your center manager’s balls empty?

    You said you work 5-6 and get paid for 8. Guarantee is anything up to 8, after that it’s production bonus if your center has it

    In general it was just the guarentee but quite a bit of the time it was bonus time. Normally when I had to prelim my last 3 pick ups which was about 1000 plus pieces from Macy's

    Bonus. Non bonus. Runner. Non runner. I'm pretty sure the cripple rate is the same.

    He speaks the truth. It was nice having life but if you have to budget is it really a life?

    I can't understand how the company would allow anyone to make bonus? Our numbers are so biased in their favor it isn't funny.
