Do they close down on days where it snows a bunch? Thanks in advance.
I take it you're from a warm state. If you're in an area where snow is normal in the winter, you have to really get a lot to close.
Do they allow more time for stuff?
What is a bunch. Some places an inch would be a bunch, other areas a foot and other areas 10 feet.
Yes-it us warm here in New York. 28degrees. I think it snows sometimes.
A bunch is more than a butt-load.
They only allow more time for lunch.
A bunch is a lot.
Snow, sleet and ice= YOU DRIVE LIKE POP POP TO ENSURE YOUR SAFETY- PHUCQKK THEM PACKAGES, THERES ALWAYS TOMORROW lol.
I always thought they just found people in the hub on snow days that are willing to lend a helping hand throughout the day.
In the 8 years that I've driven we only closed 1 day and we got 12 inches overnight...a lot of feeder didn't make it to our center. 4 other occasions the called us off the road on days we received 8 inches. My route was 2 hours from our center..it took me 7 hours to her back to center....ended up working almost 13 hours that day. So to answer your question...yes they close, but it's rare

Hard to answer your question. It has only snowed once here in the last 30 years. It was during the day and I was on the route that day. It was just very light flurries that did not stick. Lost about an hour, when I broke off from my rural stops to come back to town for bread and milk. Took me 40 minutes to get back to the center that day, but it always takes me 40 minutes.
My building has never closed for snow since I've worked here.
They will pull drivers early in my area. Early being 5PM.
Same here. During storm the day before thanksgiving,
we were told to get all pickups done, & deliver as much as possible, EC the rest, to be back by 530.
They do in NJ. Three days in the blizzard of 1996. Even on the forth day, only few came in.
Thirty years with the company and I have never seen my center close due to weather. Opened late once and called in off the road several times but never for a whole day.
