    This one intown route that i cover while following orion stop for stop always wants me to have 110 stops done by 1500 hrs. By looking at the metrics of the route it looks like it wants me to have 60 done by 1200 and another 50 done by 1500 before pickups. It seems this route is made for you to be a runner on it and not to mention i never meet these numbers and im not able to take a lunch while doing said route that normally gets 130 or a little more a day. My question is am i slow? Or if the driver got this route down to a science where he can meet these numbers that i cant meet and take a lunch on it.

    Management is the enemy.
    Their numbers are meaningless.
    Ignore them.

    Why are you so worried about it? Do your best, take your lunch, and let management worry about the rest.

    Ask them to show you which article their "numbers" are discussed under so that you can know how they are applicable to you.

    As long as the numbers are right at the end of the week in your paycheck that's all you need to worry about.

    Seriously, though, Orion's estimates have nothing to do with how they determine a planned day.

    You complain about rural routes and drive too fast, and you can’t keep up on town routes.

    Did you make the right career choice?

    As long as you scratch, management will be happy. I did a route where I was right on the Orion estimates, but an hour and a half over allowed. The only time I've ever been talked to about over allowed.

    They adjust the route based on who is covering it. You are probably getting dispatched with 20 more stops then the regular guy

    Ups's expectations are unrealistic. Regular drivers know all the shortcuts and may be a runner with no lunchs taken

    I had to do this on a route I was covering for most of this week. It’s not my job to fix their mistakes. Running businesses for 1.5 routes and doing pickups leaves no time for lunch.
