I have a bulk stop at the beginning of my bid route that gets about 200 pkgs a day. It wasn't on my route when I bid it 10 or so years ago, but when they started cutting routes they asked if I would start delivering it out of a bulk truck before returning to the building and running the rest of my route out of my p7. Not really sure if I had a choice or not but it was fine with me because the number of pkgs really added to my dispatch. I work out of a bonus center and while I don't really care about the nickels and dimes of my daily dispatch I almost always run a 1/2 hour to an hour under when I run this bulk stop and my route. Yesterday I glanced at my dispatch and saw I had an 8.3 on a day that would normally be over 9. I asked the center manager about it and he said they did a virtual time study on that stop and saw that I was running it faster than the allowance so they cut the time. What the hell? Where does this end? Are they just going to start cutting times because people are working efficiently? I have a good relationship with my customers and a solid routine so to reward me IE is going to cut my time from a computer somewhere. I know I get paid by the hour, so I just posted this to remind everyone here that there really is no reward for working quickly. Some clown in IE somewhere has to validate his position with the company.
