    Not yet. But they did just take away about a third of our truck loaders to save on sort hours, similar to what I think Valet’s goal is.

    From what it seemed on Frontline it's an easy way for management to whip your hours around daily and make it your responsibility to check to see when you gotta clock in tomorrow or the next day.

    And they expect a $2 tip.

    I just found out that Valet is the new scheduling system, to replace the current one eventually.
     
  13. Maybe they can actually get the schedule up before Friday afternoon with the new system. :glare:

    I was reading policy and Best Practices last week about posting of the schedule. It hasn’t changed. It still says the schedule is supposed to be posted by noon on Wednesday.
     
  15. Sometimes they do, not often though.

    It is funny how people will read policy but they won't take time to read the Q&A section on the home page about the Buyouts. Then they complain about the lack of information about the buyouts.

    Someone should let our management know.

    Well... Technically, the schedule gets posted on Wednesday, then taken down on Thursday for changes.

    It’s funny how some people will obsessively respond to others’ post without saying anything of value.

    Someone should print that out that policy and put it in every manager’s inbox. Or tape it to the empty case where the schedule is supposed to be posted.

    maybe I'm lucky in the fact that the schedule is up on Wednesday at noon-ish and is only taken down so the managers can change it while the couriers are away and put it back up by the time we come back to sta.
