    Thanks, I'd like to stay here and am being paranoid about my work performance is all.

    Most important lesson I ever had to learn here:
    When you punch out at the end of the morning, you leave all the garbage there.

    Save yourself the mileage. As the only good supervisor I ever had once told me, "it's just cardboard".

    I've been slacking off and dumping irregs in as I see them. Bit messier than usual. The common causality is that the top shelf (largest space but highest # of constraints) has been *$)@%'d in some way but it's easier to notice the issue than to fix it on PAS, where it often makes more sense to leave stuff on the correct shelf no matter what. If you find a way to tighten up a few stops then sink your teeth in and don't let go because it might be the only easy space you get in that car for the day.

    Amazon is what's doing it, we need USPS style tote sorting on some days but we only have a small number of cardboard square totes instead to fight over.

    What are some signs that a preload wouldn't pass their probation?

    I'm about 20 days in of my 30, and I haven't heard anything from anyone. I've never been late or missed a day, I start nearly on the same time as everyone else. They had a few people out this week so I had filled in their spot, but I'm not sure if they're using me as a temp or not.

    You seem too worried. IMO I’m guessing you’re fine. Just keep trying your best. The fact that you’re a warm body in the building is usually enough, unless you really suck.

    We have fans on the line. Seems to vent rather well.

    Love it when a pt sup makes you haphazardly throw multiple irregs that block four shelves into a truck so that the 'belt' is clear. Who cares that the driver will inevitably remove it anyways.

    Reminds me of the old retiree who would say F it and close the passenger door, load 5-6 irregs by the jump seat and take off.
    The company really is failing with all the 1980-90's gals retiring.

    I got the flu early Saturday morning and slept the whole today. Today I can hardly walk from my body aches. Since I'm about 20 days in my probation, do I go into work anyway and tell them about? Or just call in sick? Should I get a hold of my HR person?
  14. Tuff it out.

    Stay home. A lot of routes are cut on Monday anyway.

    Personally I would go to work and tough it out. If it gets too bad have them send you home. Gets you an extra day and shows that you’re dedicated.
