    If you don't have your own route they can make you cover any route they so please to.

    Man there’s nothing worse than getting used to a country route with 80 stops and 1 pickup then coming in one morning to run a downtown route with 150 stops 29 pickups. IN THE BLIND. Feels like a different job.

    I’m kinda surprised that a young driver like you was running rural routes in the first place.

    That's how our center is. All low seniority drivers delivering rural routes when the bid driver is on vacation or sick. And they always complain about having to do them too!

    We all know those new drivers that the boss likes. They try and give them the kush routes.
    Then comes along a more senior that doesn’t play that. Bump City baby.

    Our bottom guys tend to cover in-town routes and leave the rural routes to those of us more experienced split drivers.

    Nope. Tell you can it's not fair and you're not doing it.

    eats packages I have depth perception issues

    Here cover drivers pick based on seniority routes that they have ran previously. The center must be notified in advance, someone's desire to run a new route.

    It's pretty good until you realize management sucks at managing and the greviances are just a show-and-tell. Covers run routes blind all the time still.
