    "You HAVE to use the 30 inch selection area AT ALL TIMES." Also, "Orion has you skipping section 2, 3, & 4 to do section 7 in reverse and then section 6 in reverse." Also, "You can't scroll, your battery will not last all day and we cannot send any more DIADs in for new batteries."

  2. Tell them you want a smaller truck so your arms don't have to reach as far.

    How about this one.. if you haven't seen the thread over on our side of the world:

    Max package weight: 150 lbs.
    Employee unassisted lift: 50lbs.

    Truck can only handle 2 people.
    Hmm.

    Hour over, every day. Them, "What are you going to do to fix that?" Me, "There is absolutely nothing I can do." and walk away.

  5. They have all this technology. Make the load so you can run it by Orion.

    Exactly. I have 15-20 businesses on my route, once they are gone, it does not matter how it is run. Running 5 sections in reverse is just stupid. I felt myself losing IQ points following today's idiotic trace.

    that I don't get... why can't they figure out how to make the load 90% ODO and then that last 10% "finger it out"?

    I mean, our stuff is loaded in delivery order... wtf mate^^

    I used to be scratch to 1/2 hour under pretty much every day.
     
  11. One day when us old timers are gone, the company will only have employees who follow this crap. They won't have any real knowledge of what to do if the plan fails.


    Orion needs to be a tool, not the Bible.

    I've already seen it. Even our old timers "forget" everything when DRA crashes. That way they can have an easy day.
     
  14. It's a shame what this job is coming down to.

    It's funny you bring this up. Our building is starting "Methods Classes" 6 drivers everyday for a week go to the class to be taught the methods.

    Everyone brings up ORION and they just say "we are fixing it" or "it should all even out in the end of the day."

    Our DM is even in every class right now.

    When you do 6 sections in reverse, it does not 'even out.' Orion has me doing at least 4 sections in reverse at least 3 days a week. This was fixed back in Oct/Nov and has gone completely to :censored2: in the past 2 months.

    You have enough drivers to allow 6 a week to attend a methods class? We are loading up every air driver who has a package car to drive with ground. Limited by the number of red tag cars.

    So, asking for a friend....

    If my friend goes in tomorrow, sees the same sort of mess and says, "I cannot work today, I am sick." Sticks his finger down his throat, pukes and leaves. Would that be a problem??
